Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Debuts at Top of UK Charts
The JRPG has beaten out both FIFA 13 and Black Ops 2 for the number 1 position.
Is it snowing in Hell? Either way, Namco Bandai must be extremely proud as their latest JRPG Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, developed by Level 5 and Studio Ghibli, has debuted at number one spot on UK retail charts according to UKIE and GfK Chart-Track.
Despite being exclusive to Playstation 3 and suffering several supply shortages, it was able to beat previous number 1 holder Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, which is now in third place, and EA’s FIFA 13, currently in second place.
Namco UK’s Lee Kirton stated that, “We expected good sales as the pre-orders were close to shipment. In the end we have created a demand for this amazing game and have stock going out to channels this week.
“We have focused PR, marketing and the community has been brilliant. We have been solid with communication and reviews in the UK have been astonishing. We are very pleased, but ultimately it’s down to an incredible game from Level 5 and some strong communication from me and my team.”
