With release dates in September (Europe) and October (North America) looming, details regarding LEVEL-5’s highly anticipated RPG/life simulation, Fantasy Life, have surfaced. While a fair bit of information has already been released, LEVEL-5 have now revealed that Fantasy Life will contain very broad online features.
The first of many online features is Link Mode, a communication tool that can be achieved by visiting the Guild Office, located in the town of Castele. Link Mode allows players to connect with friends who are playing Fantasy Life at the same time. Through this connection, players can exchange messages and share advice during gameplay. Link Mode will also feature a notification setting that will share your in-game accomplishments with your friends.
Secondly, Fantasy Life will make use of StreetPass. Players acquired through StreetPass encounters will appear in your game as citizens of Reveria. Befriending these players can lead to you receiving new items.
Perhaps the most exciting online feature of Fantasy Life is the announcement of the online co-op mode. Up to three players can band together, either by local wireless or online, and journey through the vast world together. Co-op mode will include some form of chat feature, allowing players to communicate to each other while tackling quests together. Online co-op will also allow players to trade items through the in-game Exchange Box.
While the life simulation aspect of Fantasy Life may not excite some fans, the RPG element is certainly worth checking out, and, with this addition of online multiplayer, Fantasy Life may turn out to be quite an enjoyable game. Will you discover your Fantasy Life, hidden within the world of Reveria?
