Level 5 CEO Hints At North American Releases



Speaking with Nintendo Power, Akihiro Hino, CEO of Level 5, hinted that more Level 5 titles may be heading overseas. When asked about Inazuma Eleven, a soccer RPG series, and Ni no Kuni, the game publisher’s project with Studio Ghibli, Hino replied, “I don’t think it will that be long before you’re able to play these games.”


Level 5 will open a North American office in September. While no specific titles have been announced, Inazuma Eleven and Ni no Kuni seem like titles Level 5 International would localize. Aside from the quote, these two games plus the Professor Layton series are the most talked about Level 5 owned franchises.
