Hey, do you remember Comcept? Yeah, that Comcept? Well, it's part of Level-5 now.
The news was published in Japan earlier today (thanks to SiliconEra for the translation). The benevolent Professor Layton has effectively pressed the troubled robot Beck to his bosom. I hope they both benefit from the embrace.
The heart and soul of Comcept remains intact: The core of the "Level-5 Comcept" subsidiary is made of Comcept staff, but Level-5 President Akihiro Hino will work with the team. The new office is located in Osaka, and Comcept as we know it will be shutting down sometime in the future. Inafune says Comcept is "taking responsibility for all the titles they're working on and plan to do so until the very end," so if you're still waiting on your undelivered Kickstarter prizes for Mighty No. 9 … um, don't lose hope, I guess…?
Don't expect anything Mighty out of Level-5 Comcept, though. Inafune and Hino are already working on a mobile RPG called "Dragon Colonies." Dragon Colonies is a monster-breeding PvP game, and Japan should see it sometime in 2018.
