    https://www.siliconera.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/tongari_boushi.jpg You may remember Konami’s Animal Crossing-meets-Harry Potter hybrid, titled Magician’s Quest Mysterious Times in North America. The title, set in a magic academy, was an Animal Crossing style communication game, a comparison which Konami was proud of.

     

    Now, Konami are working on a sequel. The protagonist this time around is a future sorcerer and attends the magic school the game is set in, where he can interact with other students, go shopping and the like.

     

    Time in the game is linked to real world time, and once every week, you’ll find yourself in the “Magical Hour.” During this hour, you’ll get the opportunity to catch rare bugs or fish. Once the hour is up, you’re required to solve a magical case, depending on your character.

     

    Magician’s Quest: The Merchant’s Store of Sorcery also lets you run your own store, and there’s a nice range of choices. You could open a restaurant or a fashion store or even a jewelry store. Mini-games allow you to obtain items to keep in stock for selling at your store. There’s also a Tag Mode-like function where you can exchange information with another DS.

     

    Konami haven’t announced a release date for Magician’s Quest: The Merchant’s Store of Sorcery yet, but according to Dengeki, we should be hearing of one sometime soon.
