“Vision” is an annual event hosted by Professor Layton developer, Level 5, in Tokyo. Each year, Level 5 president, Akihiro Hiro, amongst the more recognizable entrepreneurs in Japanese game development today, gets up on stage and details his company’s plans for the future.

 

This year’s event, Level 5 Vision 2010, is going to be held on October 19th. Doors to the event will open at 6:00 PM, while the event itself will kick off at 7:00.

 

The list of games showcased at the event will include: Ni no Kuni (DS and PlayStation 3), Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracles (3DS), Inazuma Eleven Strikers (Wii), The Little Battlers (PSP), Fantasy Life (DS), Mystery Room (DS), as well as their digital mobile platform, ROID.

 

Additionally, Level 5 will also have four unannounced projects to reveal at Vision 2010. Last year’s event revealed Fantasy Life, co-developed by Brownie Brown.

 

One possible candidate for this year is Time Travelers, pictured above, in development for an unreleased platform. Time Travelers is being penned by Jiro Ishii, who also wrote visual novel 428: Fuusa Sareta Shibuya de for the Wii.
