Don’t Hate the Game, Hate the Player

Level 5 and Brownie Brown Announce Fantasy Life

Yesterday developer Level 5 held it’s annual event, Level 5 Vision, in Tokyo where they announced a new RPG called Fantasy Life. The Nintendo DS game is actually being developed by Brownie Brown (of Mother 3 fame) while Level 5 will handle the planning.

It was announced that Square Enix musical genius Nobuo Uematsu will compose the soundtrack for the game which will be a slower paced RPG in which you won’t have to fight to gain experience. The player can select from 20 “lives” at the beginning of the game and Uematsu is composing a theme for each life’s ending.

Other news at the event include the delay of Ghibli’s Ni no Kuni into 2010 and the announcement of a new new Professor Layton trilogy of which the first game, Layton Kyouju to Mashin no Fue (Professor Layton and the Devil’s Flute), will be released on November 26th in Japan.
