During its Vision event livestream yesterday, Level-5 shared some sales figures for some of its recent and most popular franchises.

The Professor Layton franchise has been the company’s most popular, drawing 15 million sales worldwide.

The Guild games, which release as compilation cartridges in Japan (Guild01 and Guild02) but as individual downloads elsewhere, have also sold fairly well, with over 400,000 downloads of bite-sized titles like Liberation Maiden, Aero Porter and Crimson Shroud. 50% of these sales came from outside Japan.

Single RPG Ni No Kuni, which was developed in collaboration with Studio Ghibli, has sold 1.4 million copies – that figure includes the Japan-exclusive DS version as well as the globally-released PS3 game.

The Inazuma Eleven series has generated 6.5 million sales, mostly in Japan and Europe.

In addition to new products announced at the event, such as Layton 7 and Wonderflick, Level-5 is also responsible for the White Knight Chronicles series; Rogue Galaxy; a couple of Dragon Quest entries; and more.
