Nintendo 3DS

An In-Depth Demonstration Of Fantasy Life


Nintendo are publishing Fantasy Life in North America and Europe this October, and this past week, the company’s Treehouse product development team provided an in-depth look at the life-simulation RPG during a live-stream. You can watch the recording below.



Fantasy Life allows you to select a profession and live its “life”. There are 12 to choose from—Paladin, Mercenary, Hunter, Wizard, Cook, Angler, Woodcutter, Miner, Blacksmith, Carpenter, Tailor and Alchemist—and you can switch lives at any time.


Skills that you’ve learnt from previous lives will remain with you even after you’ve switched, and you’ll actually need to learn the skills of multiple lives to get the most out of the game.
