Wizardry as a franchise is far more popular in Japan than in the USA (unfortunately, IMO).
Really? Thats shocking to me. I always thought Wizardry was an old-school American hardcore style RPG.
For some reason, it just seemed to have really resonated with the Japanese market, definitely moreso than here. Heck, I think Bards Tale (the original one) sold far better than the first three Wizardrys combined, and it was a pretty shameless ripoff in many ways. Or homage, as I like to think of it, being a BT fan
