I really want to know UK figures for this game. It's a great WW performance, but this never made the Top 40 in the UK once, and didn't get too high in even the 3DS charts, indicating probably only a few thousand units at best. eShop sales can't have been THAT huge, surely. I just wonder what the UK's overall contribution was in the end. I could be totally off, but I tried following it for a number of weeks, and it just didn't get anywhere here. Perhaps it did a lot better in other European countries. I know it did great in NA.

^ Did you see any promo for it in the UK? I don't remember seeing any ads - may well have remained to the core 3DS audience really.

Trying hard to think... I'm in two minds as to whether or not I caught the odd half-minute ad on TV, or whether I just remember seeing it online a couple of times. I could well have seen it aired actually, but it can't have been for very long at all - perhaps just a couple or few weeks?

Makes sense - 'tis a bloody JRPG, a 3DS game, and it's the UK - three things it has against itself lol. It's no shock at all that it wouldn't have done well here. But it really shows the complete contrast compared to other regions.

I saw a lot of ads for it on the TV. Can't quite remember what time or channel though it must have been prime time as that's really the only time my shows are on.
