Fantasy Life Online Gets New Trailer and Summer 2018 Release Window

Fantasy Life Online Gets New Trailer and Summer 2018 Release Window

After seeing many delays, players can now pre-register for the upcoming mobile RPG, but only in Japan.

The Level-5 helmed RPG Fantasy Life Online has received a brand new trailer outlining several new features for the game. There’s also a Summer 2018 release window for Japan, and a option for fans to pre-register.

After being announced over three years ago, it seems like the smartphone spin-off is finally gaining some traction. The new trailer shows off the 12 different Life Classes that players can manage, and some of the town-building mechanics that the game introduces into the series.

The multiplayer component of the game is also detailed, in which players can team up with three others to complete quests and earn loot to take back to their villages. It’s all very similar to the previous game in the series, Fantasy Life, which released for Nintendo 3DS back in 2012.

Players can now pre-register for the game via the Japanese Google Play Store. There’s currently no word on a Western release for the game, though the Japanese version appears to be nearing release. It’s worth noting that it took almost two years for the original Fantasy Life to hit Western markets after initially launching in Japan, though given that Fantasy Life Online is a mobile game, it’s really anyone’s guess if or when it’ll arrive.

Fantasy Life Online is being developed by Level-5, the team behind the Professor Layton series. It has also worked on Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom, and several Yo-Kai Watch games.

While the wait is definitely not over for Fantasy Life fans in the West, the news of a Japanese version nearing release is certainly promising. We’ll update you with more news on Fantasy Life Online as we get it.
