Das Racist? Call of Duty outsells Ni No Kuni in Japan

Das Racist? Call of Duty outsells Ni No Kuni in Japan photo



Once again, Japan has proven that that it is racist against Japanese games, animation, people, and everything. Ni No Kuni, the collaboration between premiere animated filmmakers Studio Ghibli and Professor Layton developers Level-5, has failed to outsell Modern Warfare 3 in their first week of release in Japan. Modern Warfare 3 sold over 180,000 units on the PS3, and over 30,000 units on the Xbox 360, where the PS3 exclusive Ni No Kuni pulled in just 67,000. 

Some would say that this a sign that Japan is obsessed with competitive FPSs and gritty, realistic graphics. Others may take this to mean that Studio Ghibli is no longer popular in Japan, and that the countries long held love of American action films has finally leaked into its gaming culture. I've even heard one guy say that heavily marketed, well made videogames sell very well sometimes, despite what type of game they are and where they are sold. Weird, right? I'm thinking that the guy was probably smoking reefer cigarettes when he said that. 

As for me, I will sit back and relax, knowing with 100% certainty that this data proves that everyone in Japan hates everything that isn't American, and/or about guys shooting other guys. Why else would they hire infamous shooter guy Sylvester Stallone to do the universal hand gesture for fellatio in a soup commercial about directing movie where people get their legs cut off?
