    Level-5 is known primarily for the Professor Layton series. But the Fukuoka-based publisher is more than just a one hit wonder.

    The Inazuma Eleven series also appears to be a big hit. Today, the company announced that shipments for Inazuma Eleven 2 have crossed the million mark. The second Inazuma Eleven 2 was released in separate "Fire" and "Blizzard" forms on October 1.

    Level-5 has some big promotions ahead for the franchise. Early next year, it will hold a tournament called "Football Frontier." Preliminary rounds will be held at the World Hobby Fair, which starts in Osaka in late January.

    A) It's ONLY in Japan. No worldwide release. So it may seem "low" in comparison to other games, but this one has yet to reach the rest of the world.
    B) There's quite a few games who don't reach a million ever.
    C) It's not a big-name game, honestly. It's not Final Fantasy, it's not Halo, it's not Call of Duty. It's sorta little known.

    Anyway, hopefully this will bring a US release to Inazuma Eleven. I think the first Inazuma is coming to Europe, and hopefully with such good results from this one there will be this sequel coming around.

    its strange to see so bcz i didnt think Japanese would love football-oriented games though jap players are good (Park Ji Sung of MAN UTD)
    i bet the storyline is the main selling point (which is true for all games) and i heard they are localizing the game (1st part - it was on the forum, try searching)
    i hope to get it soon

    Hopefully, this will persuade them to localize this game.I was overjoyed to ear that they were going to release the first game in Europe. Cant wait for both. [​IMG]

    Wasn't Europe getting the anime and the game? Played a bit of the first one and I'm impressed.

    Park Ji-Sung is South Korean, not Japanese.

    Inazuma Eleven is pretty popular in JP, thats what some people told me however, I cant see the fixation on it
    anyway if they brought it here it would probably struggle to sell even 100,000
