Level 5 Working On A Time Machine Story?

By Spencer . February 10, 2010 . 4:42pm

imageLevel 5 has some unannounced games in the pipeline. Maybe one of them is called Time Machine Story. Or Time Machine People. Level 5 filed trademarks in Japan for Time Machine Story and Time Machine People (written in katakana and kanji) late last year.


Any of these could be a subtitle for the localized third Professor Layton game, which involves time travel. However, I think that scenario is unlikely since Level 5 registered their names in Japanese, not English. Also, Level 5 filed three trademarks, a sign that Time Machine Story is an important intellectual property, whatever it is.


Special thanks to liamscanlan for reminding me to check on Level 5 in the Japanese trademark database.

      “What color is MJ?” “He’s black” *screams* lol, love that trailer.

      I’m almost done w/ Time Travel. Devil’s Flute is great :) I almost don’t touch my DS anymore other than Layton and Phoenix.

    I hope its along the lines of a interactive visual novel.
