Together with its Japan-only DS counterpart, the delightfully designed and visually stunning PlayStation 3 JRPG Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch has helped Level 5's series accumulate approximately 1.4 million sales worldwide.

“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,” stated Namco Bandai Europe's senior vice president Olivier Comte, perhaps highlighting the general fall in sales of JRPGs during this console generation.

Earlier in the year, we awarded the title a brilliant score of 9/10 in our review, heaping praise on its art direction and narrative. "It's bursting with so much character, humour, strength, and sorrow that it's impossible to put down," we wrote. "The lively animation and whimsical design is flawless, with memorable characters that will stay with you throughout your entire gaming career."

How much time have you spent exploring this fantastical world? Do you think Oliver's adventure has ranked among the best games of 2013? Let us know in the comments section below.

You two [Lelouch,Epic] must of just missed the game selling for £15.99 on the PSN on sale, the PSN is having some excellent games on sale Grid2 is going for £17.99 with PS+ now.

Anyway, this is well deserved, plus it'll sell more as time goes on, excellent game.

@Epic - I thought last month was great. I played the heck out of both Hitman and Runner 2. Then this month we get a couple on-rail shooters? Talk about disappointing.

I understand not every month is going to be great but this month seemed especially weak in the US.

Played the demo and it has been on my list for a while, just never quite got around to it. Plan to one day, but have too much to play at the moment.

Still cannot work out why they didn't bring this one to Vita, it would be a perfect fit.

I got it in a PS Store sale and it's sitting in my XMBG waiting to get played. I'm living in a box room at my parents at the moment while I'm waiting for a flat purchase to go through, which means my 5.1 surround sound system is sitting in a storage locker somewhere... and I REALLY want to hear that Ghibli soundtrack in all its glory! So I'm looking forward to getting into it once that's all sorted later this year.
