3DS RPG Fantasy Life Already Sold Out In Japan
Posted by Andy Green
Hopes of a Western release boosted
Level 5 has a few 3DS games out in Japan that are yet to be confirmed for Western release. Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney has been out since the end of November and just before the New Year the ultra-cute Fantasy Life was made available in both physical and digital form.
Fantasy Life is actually developed by both Level 5 and Brownie Brown and has had a very successful time since its launch, shipping an estimated 134,000 physical copies in its first week according to Enterbrain.
In fact the game has done so well it’s now completely sold out. Level 5 has taken to its official website to thank players for their support and has promised more stock will be forthcoming.
As the name suggests, the game is all about having a Fantasy Life as you take up one of twenty professions including lumberjack, chef, postman, treasure hunter and entertainer. It encourages you to play the game in any way you see fit. Different professions naturally result in different outcomes; taking up a role as an entertainer will see you hanging out with other thespians, while being a treasure hunter will obviously see you seeking out riches.
These strong Japanese sales will help the cause for a Western release, so we're hoping the game will be formally announced soon alongside Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney.
