By Spencer . August 1, 2013 . 12:22am

imageExpect lots of Level-5 news on August 26 when Level-5 Vision 2013 takes place. The conference will have information on Level-5’s upcoming titles and announcements on new games. Siliconera attended Level-5 Vision in the past when Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch was officially confirmed for North America and Fantasy Life was playable for the first time.


The theme of Level-5 Vision 2013 is "swirl" and the event will have a live performance by T-Pistonz+KMC.

    Hoping for Youkai Watch to be localized! Looks like a fun game. Of course Fantasy Life too.

    • Solomon_Kano

      Youkai Watch will probably suffer the same fate as LBX (we won’t get it til we get the anime — which we won’t get). Which is a damn shame, because I really wanna play it. ;_;

      I think we can count on Fantasy Life though, especially now that Link is out. It’s the kinda game with worldwide appeal. Been hype for that since 2009.

      • Will Jay

        I think Inazuma Eleven would be a better example. Europe got the anime, but not the US, so Europe gets the game, but not the US. LBX they’re still trying to get a TV station to pick up.

        • Solomon_Kano

          The problem with Inazuma though is that there’s a larger reason behind us not getting the anime in the first place, so it goes a bit beyond the LBX and (tentative) Youkai Watch scenario.

          Hadn’t heard they’re still trying to get someone to pick it up though. Source?

          • Will Jay

            Last thing I heard was in February, so it is dated. That nothing was apparently said at Comic-Con worries me.


          • Solomon_Kano

            Awwww, come on networks!

            It’d be a perfect fit for CN. Over the years they’ve shown Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh, Duel Masters, Bakugan, and Beyblade. This would be right up their alley!

          • Guest

            Dat logo!

            Didn’t LBX anime premiere already on some countries? (With english dub, I mean :P)

  • Lusankya

    The Level 5 CEO already hinted at the localization of Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney, so I hope they’ll officially confirm it during L5 Vision.

  • mewcus

    Fantasy Life!

  • Solomon_Kano

    That’s the day I start school. Damn.

    Well, I’m hype. Level-5 has been one of my favorite devs since the PS2 days, so I always look forward to Vision. Man, I hope they’ve got a new console game cooking in between all that portable love.

    Hopefully there’ll be some good news for the west this year as well.

    • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

      After the success of Ni no Kuni this year, I’d be surprised if there wasn’t some good news for the west.

      A new console JRPG would blow my mind.

      • Solomon_Kano

        Do we know Ni no Kuni was successful in the west?

        I’m sure they’ll have a new console RPG, just not if it’ll be this year. Hino said he’s got some ideas for PS4, so it’s only a matter of time.

        • brian

          I’ve noticed it always seems to have new copies in stock and at least $40 in retail, even at groceries.

          • Solomon_Kano

            Hm. Well, that’s a pretty good sign. Out of stock would mean they probably shipped a limited amount and never restocked, but the game’s still readily available and not bargain bin priced. So, yea, I think that’s good.

        • SerendipityX

          I think it was #11 bestseller in Jan2012 according to the NPD.

          • Solomon_Kano

            Unfortunately, NPD doesn’t give us numbers anymore, so who can say what that means.

    • SuperSailorV

      I know the feeling. Last semester, I had two 3 hour Saturday classes – first day of the semester – and it was my birthday!

      • Solomon_Kano

        Oh gosh, that must have been awful.

  • Fantasy Life Link, Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney localizations and a sequel to Liberation Maiden that isn’t a god damn visual novel only for Japan. That’s what I’d love to see.

    • brian

      And a visual novel localization?

      • Aside from my Liberation Maiden sequel prediction my first two are realistic expectations and things that can happen.

        A localization for LIberation Maiden Sin pure dream world. It’s never gonna happen.

        • Bigabu Beaze

          I really want it tho!

        • brian

          It could, as a digital only thing.

          • No it can’t. Visual Novels rarely get localized on PC where they have more of an audience. A visual novel for a console has no shot.

            Again, I’d love for it to be localized but I’m being realistic and it’s just not gonna happen.

          • brian

            They do get localized on handhelds though, and it isn’t much of a leap that they may get localized on a console.
            Level 5 could license it out to someone willing to take a gamble on it, since we don’t know if they’d do that or not based on their brief relatively brief self publishing history.
            Plus, based on people in this community and a few other places, 3DS and PS3 seem to have a decent amount of overlap.

          • Not really. There is only a handful of ones on handhelds, most have bits of gameplay like 999 or Time Hollow. Straight up visual novels just aren’t gonna get localized. People say stuff like you every time an interesting visual novel is announced but it never happens.

            Online communities would have you think niche series would do gangbusters (Tales of) but they never do.

  • Chim_era

    You know we want some localization Level 5
    Make us proud ;)

  • Warboss Aohd

    Mordin Solus: ‘deep inhale’ looking forward to it.

  • Suriel Cruz

    Ni no Kuni 2 & Rogue Galaxy HD, please!!!!

  • linkenski

    The chart from Nintendo’s financial results from yesterday only showed the latest Professor Layton game, but I really, really, really really hope this is about PLvsAA!!!

  • anthony apduhan

    Is Little Blue Box also gonna be in the Level-5 2013 vision?

    • Bigabu Beaze

      I hope so.

  • Tonton Ramos

    I have more questions from the GO Galaxy game…
    Is it true Kuroiwa Ryuusei is really Kageyama Reiji? are there aliens in the game like IE2? Will Keshins/Armed are now allowed to be used at FFIV after the prelims? Will there be Team Keshins?(all players gather energy to form a stronger Keshin) I’m dying to know Hino!

  • Shizumasa

    T-Pistonz+KMC. Sounds like there’s some Inazuma Eleven announcement coming up?

    • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

      To tell the truth, I don’t remember a Level-5 Vision event that didn’t have some sort of Inazuma Eleven announcement.

      • Shizumasa

        True. There’s always a new Inazuma Eleven game every year.

    • Tsurugi

      This announcement could be that Inazuma Eleven GO! 3DS games will come to US and EU, I know it is hard but who knows….

      • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

        IE GO! for EU, I can see happening, but I’ve given up on seeing any IE title for NA…

        • Tsurugi

          If IE GO! only go for EU, the region lock MUST DIE! xD

  • Pyrofrost

    I’m just ready for more Level 5 RPG goodness. Every RPG I’ve played made by them was great imo. (I would especially love a new Rogue Galaxy).

  • RovCal

    am i the only one who day dreams about dark cloud 3?

  • akiko_sakuraba


  • Pfantzypantz

    Some PC love would be beautiful

  • Guest

    It’d be great if they start the event saying “Good news for those outside Japan, all our titles from now on will have an almost simultaneous worldwide release and those games you’ve waiting for (LBX,FF,YW,TT,PLvAA,IE) ARE coming this FY”

    But in reality Level-5 is going to announce at least two new cool looking games with no previsible localization date ;_;

    • Bigabu Beaze

      I read that first part and I was like “YAAAY!” but then I was like -.-.

  • Tsurugi

    Please bring Inazuma Eleven GO! 3DS games and Danball Senki to US and EU!

  • Kevi Johnson-el

    I’m happy with anything made by level 5 still hope its Dark Cloud 3

  • Will Jay

    Hope we get some good footage of LBX Wars and some localization news.

    • Bigabu Beaze

      I second that!

  • SuperSailorV

    I want PLvAA localization, fingers crossed!

    And also that they’ll announce their new foray into the airline business with their flagship 747, the plane from Aeroporter.

  • I really hope they announce something BIG as Ni no Kuni was! Another partnership with Ghibli would be awesome, but maybe I’m dreaming too much. Unveil some AAA game for PS3 or next gen consoles and I’ll be satisfied ^^
