Fantasy Life Link! Wins Japanese Excellence Award, Receiving Large Free Update

By Eugene . September 21, 2013 . 1:15pm

Fantasy Life is still going strong for Level-5, with a newly announced mega update upcoming for the RPG, hot on the heels of their last update, which renamed the game Fantasy Life Link!, added online multiplayer, and brand new locales and quests. This new update, though, will be free.

First up in the update is the ability to finally recruit each of the 12 masters in the game to be your companion. As if dragons weren’t enough. These masters don’t come easy of course, and will set you up with a new, ultimate challenge: The 12 Master’s Ordeals. For instance, the Soldier’s task is to slay their own dragon. Successful completion of their tasks will net you Mars coins, a new currency.

Mars coins can be cashed in at each city by using them to pray to the Goddess, receiving rare and unique pieces of loot such as the Carrot Suit set.

There will also be new daily quests offered for regular players, alongside the lifting of bans for special equipment.

All this alongside some 30 new items, including new furniture items such as a gold goddess statue, avatar remodelling item and even a bonus reset item. There will also be new emotes and avatar parts to tinker around with.

Fantasy Life Link recently won the Computer Entertainment Society’s Excellence award at its Japan Game Awards this year. The game’s 1.4 update doesn’t have a release date yet, so stay tuned for more info in the weeks ahead. While the game has been trademarked in both Europe and the US, there’s still no news on a release outside Japan just yet.

    Level 5 please…

  • GameTaco

    Still waiting to for this to get localized. I’m going to be entirely honest, I was expecting to see it released alongside Hometown Story and Rune Factory 4 to form a trio of wonderful 3DS sims this year.

    It just keeps looking better~

  • Smooosh

    I want this game so bad… ._.

    • Shane Guidaboni

      I just sent an email to Level-5 international urging them to localize more of their games. It couldn’t hurt to send them an email so they know we’re interested. http://level5ia.com/contact/

      • Smooosh

        Cool, I might do that as well. Gotta at least try to do something.

    Gosh I can’t wait til this eventually/hopefully gets localized.

  • 3PointDecoupage

    The only news I want to hear about this game is an english release date!

  • klkAlexar

    I hope the delay for an English release is that they are going to give us all the updates in one release.

    • idrawrobots

      Like Bravely Default perhaps, I hope so.

  • Robbyfishersora

    I would buy it if release over here.

  • InfectedAI

    I had given up on this game, but this actually makes me think it might get localized. They could be waiting until they’re done with all major updates to release a complete edition for western countries. I really hope that’s the case as I’d love to play this. I normally don’t buy games at launch, but I’d make an exception for this.

    ….. i wanna this. *puppy eyes* localization……please?

    Didn’t they already file trademarks in Europe and the US for this game some months ago?

      “While the game has been trademarked in both Europe and the US, there’s still no news on a release outside Japan just yet.”

    • InfectedAI

      Doesn’t really mean much. Lots of companies file trademarks in a few countries and then never release there.

  • Shane Guidaboni

    I would buy this and Youkai Watch if Level 5 got their act together.

    • almostautumn

      Not to mention Inazuma and Little Battlers…

      • Shane Guidaboni

        I’ve wanted an Inazuma game for so long.

  • riceisnice

    It’s like an MMO. Except it’s not an MMO. Only 1 payment. No microtransactions (As far as I know). FREE “expansion”. I’m gonna have a heart attack.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    I really had this love and hate feeling with Level-5 here.T_T and also someway with Konami and Namco Bandai. After seeing how Animal Crossing series does really well outside of Japan, i really wonder why won’t any Japanese developers bring those games with Animal Crossing vibe to capitalize on the Animal Crossing fans here.T_T
