In this week's issue of Famitsu magazine, Level-5 announced that they're set to release an upgraded version of Fantasy Life, the RPG/exploration/goof-around-and-fish-all-day game they released for the Nintendo 3DS in Japan late last year.
Called Fantasy Life Link!, the upgrade mostly focuses on boosting the game's online feature set. Up to four people can now play co-op over the Internet once they exchange Friend Codes, and there's also a new Link Mode that, when you're online, lets you exchange messages with friends and keep tabs on their progress through the game. This will be accompanied by a new website launching alongside Link! that's set to feature forums, stats, and screenshot albums. In addition, Level-5 showed off a new island that will be available for exploration in Link!,...
Fantasy Life, developer Level-5's recently released role-playing game for Nintendo 3DS, has sold out in Japan, according to an update on the developer's website.
On its website, the Professor Layton and Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch developer thanks fans for the interest and says that the company hopes to ship more cartridges soon. The game is also available as a download in the 3DS eShop.
Level-5 released the open-world RPG in Japan on Dec. 27. In an interview with Japanese magazine Famitsu last month, studio head Akihiro Hino said that the developers spent three years on the project, and only transitioned to 3D about two years ago.
