Keep an eye on the Amazon page if you're interested in the guide, it keeps coming back in stock for short amounts of time.

I'm still waiting for an email that confirms this. I have not heard anything from namco about this. Not holding my breath at this point.

I can't believe that this players guide is repeatedly selling out so fast. Never seen a guide sell like this.

The Skyrim CE guide first run went quick. People were paying $100 for it.

Darn, I missed it. I don't know if it was a fluke, but it was showing in stock for $21, and when I clicked to go to the full site (on my phone), it was out of stock. Poop!

I'm not sure I need/want this anyway since I have the WE. But then again, I hate feeling like I'm missing stuff in games...

WE compendium is not really a comprehensive strategy guide.

That surprises you? Did you not see the listings where the Halo 4 FOTUS DLC went for over $160?

I didn't even bid, I had no idea these prices were like this for a digital object. People are stupid. I have no desire to add an extra guy to a game with hundreds of guys already in it. I don't even have the game yet.

Yes it surprises me. It's not a physical object. Why would people buy this for these prices? I simply don't understand.

Sold out for a couple minutes, but went back in stock and I grabbed one. Think fast if you're on the fence.

I'll second - if it comes back in stock and you're on the fence, don't hesitate. Buy it! I waited yesterday because of the "get a free guide if they cancelled your order" thing. Now i really regret it because then I got this - so I'd say its not a sure thing AT ALL:

"Thank you for contacting the Namco Bandai US Online Store.

We still do not have any information if there will be additional copies
that will be produced for the product.

We are aware of a statement made from Namco Bandai regarding the 400
page hard bound copy of the Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch
strategy guide which includes an exclusive code to unlock a Gold Hurly
Familiar in the game in addition to the original $20 clubNamco voucher,
we are still awaiting for an update from our processing team. When
details of this offer are finalized, someone will be in touch with more
information. We do not have any additional information at this time.

We are sorry for the inconvenience."

I have no confidence they'll actually get a guide to everyone who should get one. "We are aware of a statement..." Uh, yeah.

OOS again. You'd think this would be a good marketing technique.. sell little of something and make it "rare" and more people would buy it. They could even be selling it on Ebay themselves! If I was going to run a company I would use this strategy.


I don't think that's happening. It's back ordered on GameStop at $40. Namco underestimated demand for Ni No Kuni by a long shot.

Well they interviewed with IGN and said they were going to so I'm fairly confident.

I hope so... I didnt get a WE, but if I get a guide out of it, all's not lost! I still ordered two from Amazon to be safe.

I don't understand either, but at least those people are willing to pay for it... I heard that people commit suicides over digital friends and that Japanese gamer marrying the DS with official ceremony... If game companies milking gamers with DLCs, guess what some of the people doing with those "exclusive" DLCs? Yep, milking more money, lol.

As soon as I found out that Ni Nu Kuni has some features similar to Pokemon but takes place in a 3D world with HD graphics, this is when I become hype for the game.


Pokemon elements in a Dragon Warrior/Quest game. Love the game and the music is great too.
