Nippon Ichi Quality: Last Rebellion Sells 3,300 Copies



Nippon Ichi’s Worst Game of 2010 nominee Last Rebellion has sold a staggering 3 thousand copies in Japan.

Excerpts from the January 25-31 top 50, selected new releases only:

1. Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Reverie (DS – 909,000)

2. End of Eternity (PS3 – 125,800)

4. Ar Tonelico 3 (PS3 – 85,700)

8. End of Eternity (PS3 – 29,100)

11. MAG (PS3 – 14,800)

44. Last Rebellion (PS3 – 3,300)

Nippon Ichi is said to have developed the game exclusively for a western audience, suggesting it might harbour a rather unflatteringly low opinion of what is needed to secure sales in these markets.

    I think the game looks good, it has that style. Problem is they made it anime style with english dubs/japanese Dialog. Meaning even for us it is going to look/feel more wonky than it should.

    Saying a game is for the west will instantly generate hate for the game. Thing is this game is probably not going to do very well in the west either...

    Still based on what I have seen I am still interested.

    I think 'nippon ichi quality' is a little harsh as most NIS games are kick ass awesome titles.

    yeah, I think they just stepped into unfamiliar territories with this title, and REALLY screwed up.

    other than that, I can't wait for Disgaea 4 ouo

    well if given a choice, would people buy a high budget new IP, a well established IP, or a low budget new IP?

    Let's face it Nippon Ichi were pretty stupid releasing it this week three new RPG's were released this week on the PS3 Ar Tonelico III, End Of Eternity and Last Rebellion what did they expect exactly?

    Would it kill Nippon Ichi to hire some halfway capable artists, or at least outsource their character designs and artwork to Korea?

    This kind of graphic standards belongs to portable consoles or computers in the PC-98 ms-dos era. Even small visual novel companies have better artwork.

    I feel for all you PS3 people who buy a modern console and still get games that look like .. this. What kind of company call itself Nippon Ichi and put out games like this? Is that the best Japan can do? It's as though they aren't even trying.

    You know you've made a crap game when foreign games sell 5x more copies than yours. Especially a FPS.

    For certain reason, this game seems to get more exposure in Sancon after FF13, SOC4, & TOV..

    an anime game developed for the U.S that isn't a parody (like No more heroes) do they really think this will sell over here?

    Ar tonelico 3 sold less than 1/2 what Ar tonelico 2 sold in its first week.

    Ar tonelico 3 looks fucking garbage, who thought it was a good idea to put in the most creepy and scary as shit fanservice ever into a ps3 game, keep that shit on the pc where it belongs.

    Well,i have it and it isn't garbage,sorry to disappoint you.
    if the undressing scene are what shock you,you can turn them off.
    as for the rest,it is the same "fanservice" level that the at 1+2 had.

    if you just want to rage over it cause "IT DOESN'T FIT MAH TASTE BAAAAW!" then do it all you want,the game is not a gem,but it is far from being bad.

    have a nice day.

    Get your facts straight.

    AT 2 couldn't even break 100k its first year. What about that game wasn't "creepy" to begin with? I can't believe someone on sankaku is complaining about creepy fanservice. Did you just discover this site?

    If I worked for the FBI I'd trace the IP's of people here because I'm willing to bet 95% of the posters here are pedophiles.

    Anyone who defends ar tonelico has issues. Its a franchise with lolicon characters that look like 12 years olds undressing with horribly vulgar sexual innuendo.

    I can tell none of you sickos have daughters and have no respect for young innocents girl.

    Actually its a good thing none of you have daughters because you'd probably rape them.

    This is a very sad site, I regret stumbling across this shit hole.

    What a brilliant argument! I have never seen a more unbiased post with undeniable point-by-point evidence that Ar Tonelico is a bad game only played by pedophiles. I guess my happily married, big breast loving friends that play Ar Tonelico are secretly pedophiles! WOW!

    But why stop there?

    If I worked for the FBI I'd trace the IP's of people that visit Rockstar because I'm willing to bet 95% of their fans are murderers.

    Anyone who defends Grand Theft Auto has issues. Its a franchise with criminal characters that murder people with horribly vulgar violence.

    No, I'd only rape your daughter. While you watched. Then kill you both. Then rape her again. Because I play Ar Tonelico and GTA. Obviously I'm the worst of both worlds.


    The fanservice in Ar Tonelico is as bad as most anime. The story is actually fairly interesting and the character dynamic from the Diving sequences is actually really well written, if not a bit campy at times.

    Go back to MW2, moralfag.

    "..with lolicon characters that look like 12 years olds."

    Dude, the next time you want to troll around Sancon while waiting your FPS game to finish its 30minutes loading, try to get the TERMS correctly okay?

    You obviously never played AT2, since it had plenty of "creepy" elements. Also, get your facts straight. AT2 for all of 2007 didn't even break 100k units whereas AT3 in the first THREE days is already at 85k. It probably won't do much better than 2, but it's certainly not doing worse.

    Can't believe anyone can complain about creepy fanservice on a site like this.

    because the authour is too fucking dumb to write 360 instead of ps3.

    Day 1 purchase for me. It's a budget release after all. It has a pretty heroine and it's a JRPG on the PS3, and it's already in English, what more can I ask?

    I don't care about what the Japanese fanbase thinks -- they're the reason why the anime scene is stuck in perpetual moe mediocrity.

    I do applaud NIS for supporting the western market, even with their niche releases. Totally unlike Namco Bandai.

    So while they may crash and burn and go the way of Gonzo, while they're still around they can have my cash.

    Anonymous the game has been released in north america, and its absolutely horrible, somehow even worse than FF13.

    You should have gotta Nier, 3D Dot Game Heroes, Blazblue CS, Trinity Universe, Resonance of Fate, etc but you wanted this garbage. Good going dood.

    Well, from what I understand, the only low point of the game are the graphics and the voice acting. The battle system might also take some getting used to.

    If the game is fun and the story is good, I'm sold.

    Many doujins rely on quality as their selling point instead than marketing schemes too.

    Heh, how can it be a new record if in the related articles there's a Wii game that sold 100 copies?

    I still don't see why a company called "Nippon Ichi" is targeting their games towards westerners.

    Hopefully they survive that. Other companies had to shut down after they developed an unsucessful game Dood.
