Finally released on February 1st, Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch has gone straight to the top of the UK charts. Not surprising really, considering how many copies were pre-ordered. It’s knocked down the likes of Far Cry 3 and FIFA 13 a couple of places. Also, the Hitman: HD Trilogy which was also released last week came in at number five.
Frankly, I’m really happy that it’s been so well received outside of Japan. I was worried it might seem a bit too “cutesy-anime” for the generation of COD lovers. Clearly not, seeing as it’s knocked Black Ops II from the top spot!
