Namco Bandai has confirmed Ni no Kuni has sold approximately 1.4 million units worldwide. The figure includes worldwide sales of Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, released for PlayStation 3, and Japan only sales of its Nintendo DS. “We are very proud to join our partner, Level-5 to announce that the critically acclaimed role-playing game series, Ni no Kuni, has approximately reached the 1.4 million units sold worldwide,” said Olivier Comte, Namco Europe’s SVP. “The franchise has been very well received in EMEA and as a result of its quality, has reached an amazing number of sales for a JRPG.” The sales figures for the game were originally announced during the Level-5 Vision event last week in Japan.

    “has reached an amazing number of sales for a JRPG”

    A JRPG that isn’t Final Fantasy that is.

    Still, I think that NamDai didn’t expect the title to sell this well. Even in Indonesia, most stores I knew of ran out of stock just a few days after pre-order opens.
    The same thing happened in UK as well didn’t it?

    Anyway, it’s a great game and probably the only JRPG I’ve played that was able to match FFXIII’s sky-high production quality.

    I’m happy for LEVEL-5 and NAMCO. I’m sure we will see more GHIBLI/LEVEL5 games in the future. Ni No Kuni stands proud on my shelf!

    Loved, loved, loved the game. Currently on a 82 hour run, and still new stuff is happening gameplay-wise. Still a bit bummed about not being able to secure the special edition with the wizard’s handbook though.
