Mother 3 developer Brownie Brown made Fantasy Life, a mix of a simulation game and a role playing game. Players create an avatar, pick a "life" like miner, fisherman or magician, and then set out to explore a monster filled world.
Fantasy Life came out on December 27 in Japan and the game flew off store shelves. Shortly after the game’s launch, Level-5 said there was a shortage of copies on the market. The question is will Nintendo which published Professor Layton and Inazuma Eleven handle Fantasy Life or will Level-5 release the title on their own like Guild 01.
