Get the Job You Always Wanted in Fantasy Life for 3DS

Posted by James Newton

No, not Nintendo Life reviewer

Japanese developers Level-5 and Brownie Brown — creators of Professor Layton and Mother 3 respectively — are teaming to make Fantasy Life for 3DS, an RPG about keeping your job at the end of the world.

Famitsu (via Siliconera) reports that the game will feature 20 jobs including chef, lumberjack, scholar, street entertainer, postman, magician, soldier, treasure hunter and fisherman. It also looks beautiful, as you'd expect from the development duo.

Fantasy Life is down for a 2012 release in Japan with a great little trailer below.

Looking forward for this game since it was announced previously for the DS>3DS. I'm pretty excited for the Level-5 conference this weekend, can't wait to see more of these titles.
One thing I'm gonna miss though is the Beautiful Spritework. A least we all have London Life... wait

Level-5 and Brownie Brown just need to make ALL the video games from now on. Geez, I don't know how their stuff is so consistently amazing.

Oh, gosh... do I have time to get addicted to another game from Level-5? :(

Other than that concern, I'm just curious about how jobs like chef, scholar, postman, farmer, etc. could be as much fun as jobs like soldier and treasure hunter. A certain Star Wars MMO had a little trouble nailing that, from what I hear. ;)

I, too, have been looking forward to this game since it was first announced for the DS........... and impatiently have been waiting for more news. I SERIOUSLY hope they consider sending it here to the US.

@lz20XX Actually, the whole point of London Life was to be a taste for the upcoming Fantasy Life, which has been in development for more than most people know. It was originally for the DS (and you can see the old artwork still lurking on the internet if you google it, it still looks nice), delayed several times, then scrapped and started over for the 3ds. I have been waiting for this game FOREVER. haha

@Karakato I'm going to miss those incredibly cute yet beautiful sprites too. It reminded me of Mother 3, and a little bit of Zelda for the SNES.

I pray this gets a EU release, day one buy if it does. I have been waiting ages for this game, before I even knew a 3DS was going to exist.

looks like rune factory but you have more jobs than just a farmer, and if i'm right and I hope I am, that looked like a turn based combat. I also hope that to get the hole story you have to play all 20 jobs. That would increase the replay value so much. Looks good and can't wait!

Finally, more information on this game! I think the last time they said anything about it was in E3 2010.

I voted for this game to get localized but stupid Prof Layton vs Ace Attorney took most of the votes.

(Yeah, I'm annoyed that this game has a slim chance it seems of coming over).

I like Brownie Brown's work on Magical Starsign, Sword of Mana and Mother 3.

No Nintendo Life reviewer position? GET THIS GAME OUT OF MY SIGHT

But cerealously. This game looks pretty cool. And I know it must be, because the screenshot reminded me of Fat Princess. :P
