Level-5 Adds More Networking Features To Fantasy Life

By Spencer . July 25, 2013 . 10:13pm

Fantasy Life was a strong seller for Level-5 and an expanded version just came out in Japan today. Fantasy Life Link’s key new feature is online multiplayer. Up to four players can connect and fight Gigante monsters together. The game has a text chat feature and you can assign four messages to shortcut buttons. if you prefer to communicate by waving and bowing at other players, you can use Fantasy Life Link’s emote system. Players can also trade and give each other items as presents.


StreetPass features have been expanded too. If you pass another Fantasy Life Link! player their avatar will appear in your town.


Fantasy Life Link! is a 4,980 yen ($50) game, but if you already have Fantasy Life you can upgrade your game by purchasing the 2,000 yen ($20) Link! Kit pack as downloadable content. Fantasy Life has not been announced for the West, but a trademark for Fantasy Life filed in Europe hints at a potential overseas release.

    I’ll be happy when localization is confirmed. ^q^

    For now, I shall grief because this game is getting more and more awesome and we’re just… sitting here… crying-but-not-crying… orz

    Woah snap. This game is getting more and more features, post-release. xD

    In some ways this seems so cynical. It’s just two of the biggest 3DS games (Montster Hunter and Animal Crossing) stuck together. Throw in a monster collection set of jobs (animal breeder, ranger, zookeeper, whatever) and they’ll have the ur 3DS release.

    Why level 5 why :( stop torturing me.

    Not going to lie, this game looks kind of like how I wanted Heroes of Ruin to be like (not graphically, more like execution-wise).

  • Virevolte

    Damn… it looks so cute and fun.

    Right now Level-5 has a pretty big catalogue of games that I really wanna play that just haven’t been announced for western release yet. Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney, Fantasy Life, and Youkai…watch? I forget what the actual title was.

  • Smooosh

    They were just waiting for the upgraded version to come out to treat us with the best of the best, right?
    Right? :D

    …. :(

  • Ban The Jackass

    …. My disqus name doesn’t match my comment somehow…
