Level 5 Reveals Sales Figures, Announces Wonder Flick

In a recent press conference, Level 5 lifted the veil on sales figures for its various franchises. Of particular note is Ni no Kuni, which sold a respectable 1.4 million copies worldwide between PS3 and DS, about half of which were sold outside of Japan. They also revealed the Professor Layton series sold about 15 million in total, and Inazuma Eleven sold 6.5 million (both figures worldwide).

In the same press conference, the company announced they are developing a crossplatform free-to-play RPG titled Wonder Flick. Seemingly a traditional RPG with some character creation mechanics, the game will feature music from Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu. Wonder Flick will launch on PS3, PS4, Xbox One, Wii U, PS Vita, iOS, and Android platforms; save data will be shared across every platform, though each will feature exclusive dungeons.

At present the title is planned only for a 2013 release on iOS/Android in Japan, with console versions to follow in 2012. A global release was not announced.
