Saying Disney has all of the Ghibli titles is false. Like for instance, Disney does not have Grave of the Fireflies. Central Park Media had that movie in America until they shut down, and ADV Films then had it which is now part of AEsir Holdings and Section 23 Films.

I can understand that Disney wouldn't have the Lupin the 3rd: Castle of Cagliostro movie since that was a Miyazaki film before Studio Ghibli was formed.

But yes Disney has got every Ghibli release besides Grave of the Fireflies.

Well for a niche game, it sold pretty well. For a Ghibli game, it sold an ok amount.

lets not forget that this game already game out on DS almost a year prior to the ps3 release, and considering the install base of DS in japan, i would imagine that many already have this game and didnt feel the need to purchase it again. it sold 500,000 copies in its first 3 months on DS, which is quite a high number considering its japan.

a little perspective for the sales numbers...

The DS version isn't 100% the same game as the one for PS3. PS3 version is similar, but does have enough changes to it to make it different than the DS version.

Correct, there have been several additions to the PS3 version of the game. The game sold pretty well for the most part. I'll be supporting Level-5 and Bamco day-1 when it comes out domestic

This game looks so awesome. I cannot wait for this to come out in the US.

I'm hoping this game'll come out in Europe sometime in May or June.

Would be a nice gap between the other games I'm looking forward to.

That said, as this is the main game I'm after, after Naruto Generations, then I'd still buy this if it gets a summer release. As the two other games around that time I'm interested I get the sense will be average.
