      @FaithlessMr: What do you mean ‘won’t have to wait long?’ Lmao.

        @rockman29: He’s probably talking about the gap between U.S. and European releases.

        Look at Tales of Graces F, for example. U.S. date: February 2012. European date: August 31, 2012.

          @Sal Romano: Could be. Thanks for the info.

          Long wait from the Japanese release still. Isn’t it already out there?

          • FaithlessMr

            Yeah that’s it everyone, sorry for not elaborating upon that :P But when you think about it….I mean, c’mon. Knowing the game would release next year, I was also afraid we wouldn’t get it until March, April or even May! So January is like….rather early 2013 :P

    And it’s up to us to make this game a success as it sold poorly in Japan.

    Let’s do it everyone!! :P

      I believe Ni No Kuni was a success because the DS sold a huge amount(over 700,000 and add the ps3 version numbers.
