Tiny Cartridge 3DS

Fantasy Life Link trailer

This clip shows the enhanced edition’s new map, new characters, and most importantly, lots of multiplayer – this version adds online play. This game isn’t all combat, but I guess that just makes for a better trailer.

If you already have a copy of the original Fantasy Life for your Japanese 3DS, you can upgrade for 2,000 yen, it looks like. Nice! And if you have a copy for your American 3DS, you live in the future, where we’ve successfully convinced Level-5 to localize this.

Yoshitaka Amano illustrations for Fantasy Life

Boy, this game sure is going through a lot of different art styles! First there was its 16-bit-ish look, then its 3D transformation, and now this — Amano is a legend, though, so he’s allowed to step in and do whatever he wants.

Besides, like the Final Fantasy artwork he’s famous for, this won’t actually appear in the 3DS game. As far as I can tell, publisher Level-5 is just using the airship image for the RPG/life-sim’s mini-soundtrack preorder bonus in Japan.

Japanese boxart for Fantasy Life, the colorful RPG/sim hitting Japan next month from Level-5 and Brownie Brown. If you missed it last week, here’s a new 6-minute trailer that makes the game look a LOT nicer than it seemed in the screenshots we shared before. The music is tops, too — hope those tracks make it into the actual game.

Fishing, bug hunting, and mining in Fantasy Life. Is it just me, or does this game look kinda… rough…? I’m still totally down for picking up a fake job in an idyllic village, but… yeah… rough…

New Fantasy Life trailer from TGS. Even if this 3DS game trailer had no video at all, I would be irredeemably charmed right now. This relaxing music is exactly what I needed at this point in my day. Hope it helps you too!

Fantasy Life trailer. We basically only see anything of this 3DS title once a year at Level-5’s Vision conference, and it looks wonderful every time. I’m now fully over the transition from Brownie Brown’s signature 2D style to a polygonal look, as it allows the characters to look more like Hideo Minaba’s character designs than Mother characters.

Besides, if you want a 2D slow-life RPG by Brownie Brown, Professor Layton’s London Life is coming out in like a couple of days as part of Professor Layton and the Last Specter (in North America). This seems to be sort of a London Life 2 with fantasy stuff.

You can find some new Fantasy Life screens here!

Five Level-5 3DS Trailers: Subbed Layton Vs. Phoenix Wright, Fantasy Life, & More

Much like Puff Daddy, we can’t stop, won’t stop, and possibly don’t even know how to stop posting Level-5 junk. It’s a sickness for which there is no cure.

After the break, you’ll find new trailers for Fantasy Life, Time Travelers, Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle, and Cabaret Girls. We’ve also posted the Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright video for the third time, but this one has subtitles!

Fantasy Life: 2D/3D screenshot comparison

Level-5 announced several titles for the Nintendo 3DS last night: Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright, Time Travelers, and Cabaret Girls (hostess training game), which bodes well for the upcoming portable.

The publisher also revealed that its Fantasy Life RPG will now release for the 3DS instead of the standard DS. With this platform switch, a new 3D look will replace the top-down, 8-bit-style Brownie Brown has been known for lately (e.g. Mother 3, A Kappa’s Trail).

I’m sure many would have preferred the old presentation, but this seems to better resemble the concept art Level-5 had previously shown for Fantasy Life:
