360 version?

#1 Posted by UnlivedPhalanx (473 posts) -

I couldn't find the answer on the web and I don't know enough about Level 5 Inc, to know if they would do a port. I see they have been doing Sony / Nintendo development only pretty much. There's not a lot on them here on the site, which makes me sad.

yup, there are currently no plans for a 360 version.

On the positive side, it will probably receive huge sales and that's the best incentive to port over a game as there will ever be.

God I hope so, this trailer makes me want to find my copy of My Neighbor Totoro and watch it right away!

You're wrong and you're right. The PS3 game sold pretty poorly in Japan, and Level 5 are banking on a good international release to see whether to release a sequel or not. It's not inconceivable that they'd go multiplat if they were desperate for some numbers from the US/UK market.

360 version? That's wishful thinking.

I don't even think Level 5 has done any work for the Xbox 360 in the past anyway.

Level 5 and Microsoft have a bad relationship after that MMO they were doing on the og Xbox. I wouldn't expect it

@UnlivedPhalanx:

If you haven't seen My Neighbor Totoro I advise that you do it's a great film and an even better introduction to studio Ghibli films.

All I want is Dark Cloud 3 released for both the Playstation and Xbox.

Of course that'll never fucking happen, which bums me out. That's the single game that would get me to finally buy a Playstation (if it was an exclusive).

What MMO?

What MMO?

True Fantasy Live Online. We have a very bare-bones wiki page on it here on Giant Bomb, actually, but I imagine you're probably better served with some video footage of it. The reason behind its cancellation is pretty widely believed to be related to corporate politics on Microsoft's end and since the project started in the really early days of Microsoft trying to court Japanese development talent, it's not surprising that trouble arose, especially for a game being developed on an online platform that Microsoft likes to control as much as possible. I hadn't even considered that it might be a reason why there is no 360 version of Ni no Kuni, but it sounds like they got burned pretty badly by the experience, so it wouldn't surprise me in the least if it had something to do with that. It also probably doesn't hurt that Sony provided some marketing support and console bundles for the game in Japan, though.

I wonder how much of TFLO became Dragon Quest IX...

I would definitely play this if it came to the Xbox. Pity it most likely won't.

Seems unlikely, but stranger things have happened before.

Thanks true, in a world where Duke Nukem Forever came out and sold for $60.

If so it will be a 3 disc game

I would like to see this game on something other than the ps3 as people have said that it is unlikely to be on xbox due to falling out of level 5 and Microsoft. Maybe they could port it to the Wiiu.
