By Sato . May 21, 2013 . 10:14pm


We recently reported that Fantasy Life shipped around 300,000 units according to Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino. Things are about to get livelier in the world of Fantasy Life, as a release date for their upcoming large content update has been revealed.


According to the latest issue of Famtisu, the major content update that will bring online play, a new level cap and many new quests, which is said to greatly enhance the lifestyle of Fantasy Life, will be coming out on July 25th.


Level 5 will also be releasing a new, fully-packaged version of the game with the new update included, called Fantasy Life: Link for 4,980 yen ($50), while the downloadable version of the update will cost 2,000 yen ($20) on the Nintendo eShop.


While there hasn’t been a formal announcement for Fantasy Life in North America or Europe, the game has recently had a trademark filed for both regions.

    This… Is just a 3DS game right? If I didn’t know better, this would sound like an update for an MMORPG.

    • Jason Clark

      Yet it says it will bring online play lol

  • efholic

    Sounds like a great time to bring it to the West.

    • Auragar

      Exactly my thoughts. Maybe this is why L5 has yet to do it?

    • Chaos17

      I want it too.

  • XypherCode

    I think they just did a “Luigi U” XD
    Anyway it’s good they’re re-releasing the game with the add-on content.
    I’m wondering if they’ll offer this in the eShop as well, already with the update, or should we buy it separately there.

    • Auragar

      Yup. However if released in the US we wouldn’t have a choice. We’d get Fantasy Life: Link.

      • GH56734

        The US Ninokuni PS3 release is missing some of the DLC monsters from the JPN re-release but still has some of its content (ie. Easy Mode), so I wouldn’t be so sure.

        • Auragar

          This is kind of a big update, so I am pretty sure.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    So this is the main reason for the delay right? L-5? Please tell me that this is the real thing and the trademark is not just a bad tease.T_T

  • Will Jay

    Oh, Level-5. You and your re-releases. It’s still a much better way to deal with it than the fiasco with Little Battlers Boost, though.
