Level-5 is known for games like The Snack World and Fantasy Life. The developer is currently working on brining the Snack World to Nintendo Switch, as well as bringing Fantasy Life Online to iOS and Android. The game has entered a beta test towards the end of last year, and has seen several delays since then.
Level-5 announced that they would yet again delay the release of Fantasy Life Online to ensure quality of the game. According to the press release, the developers want to improve Fantasy Life Online visual presentation, as well as the user interface. If you want to learn more about Fantasy Life Online check out some gameplay from the beta below.
Much like Fantasy Life, the mobile game will feature 12 life paths. Players can advance as they make progress in the game, and master different jobs. Fantasy Life Online will also feature a brand new village, that players can customize.
Level-5 recently announced in latest issue of CoroCoro Comic that the food obsessed Nintendo 3DS game The Snack World is heading to the Switch. The Snack World: Trejarers follows the magical adventure of Chup and his comrades, gameplay takes place in a typical RPG fantasy style setting. With shops, markets, housing, towns, cafés friendships and more! It has been released in Japan on the Nintendo 3DS and smartphones last summer. The publishers has not announced any release date for the Snack World Switch in the western world, however the Nintendo Switch port could indicate that a world wide release of the game is planned for sometime in 2018. Check out some gameplay footage of the Snack World below.
[dropcap]N[/dropcap]ikkei Trendy had an interview with CEO of Level-5 Games, Akihiro Hino. During this conversation, Hino praised the Nintendo Switch and said that Level-5 is working on games for the Switch. We’ve included the excerpt for anyone that wants to have a read.
Hino:“I think Switch is good. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is extremely fun. It’s almost dangerous. (Laughs.) Actually, playing with Switch myself, my impression [of the system] has changed a lot from when it was still in development. I was hesitant about its ‘play both inside and outside’ style, but I feel like there is a considerable potential there.
“Anyway, Zelda is a lot of fun, so I personally carry it around and play it as much as I can, even on airplanes. The model that Nintendo gave me is the one with the red- and blue-colored controllers, so when I carried it around a lot, the looks I got made me self-conscious. I bought the black controller that they released myself and attached it. (Laughs.)
“I think the Style of Switch is a wonderful fit for competitive games. You can play if you’re gathered in real life, as well as online. For example, I think the fact that the game lovers within a company can get together and play Mario Kart is really fascinating and interesting. And while I can’t say the content quite yet, we’re working on game(s)* that support [Switch].”
To quickly summarize, Akihiro Hino was hesitant about the Switch, at first. However, after playing Zelda on the finished product, he’s very enthusiastic about the new system. He chose not to give us details on the content but says that Level-5 is working on new games for the Switch after all.
Of course, if you know us, you know that’s not where we’re gonna leave the subject. Akihiro said two important things in his praise of the Switch that may help us better understand where he’s going with this. First, he says there is considerable potential in the play-inside-and-outside style of the Switch. Second, he claims that he thinks the Switch works well for competitive games.
This likely means that Level-5 wants to take advantage of the way you can bring console titles with you on the Switch. As well as using it for competitive titles, as Hino seems fond of the Switch’s capabilities for that.
We’re sure you’ve noticed these two traits are almost at odds with each other. How do you develop a competitive game that you can just pick up and play anytime? Well, you usually don’t. More likely, this refers to separate games. Not just one. Here are a few ideas that spring to mind:
Inazuma Eleven – Inazuma Eleven: Ares no Tenbin has been announced but has no launch window or selected platform. It could be on the Switch. Alternatively, we could see a new Inazuma Eleven Strikers title, as those were Wii titles and would exemplify that competitive style they suggested.
Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom – So far, this title is only announced for PS4 and Windows PC. We think it could be ported to the Nintendo Switch. Level-5 Games might be reconsidering. Hino did say that he was hesitant about the Switch, at first. Maybe he’s changed his mind?
Fantasy Life – Perhaps we’ll see a new iteration of this on the Switch, as it has been out for a while on the 3DS. Not to mention, Hino did say that he thought the inside-outside play style of the Switch had potential. Fantasy Life could take advantage of that.
Yo-Kai Watch – With rumors still hot that Pokemon will be putting a main series title on the Switch, there’s no reason Yo-Kai Watch won’t follow suit.
Dragon Quest – While Dragon Quest isn’t Level-5’s game, they HAVE worked on it, in the past. This includes Dragon Quest VIII and Dragon Quest IX, which is already confirmed for Switch! It’s very likely that Level-5 Games is somehow involved.
Snack World – With the game being made in Unity, it wouldn’t be too hard to see it on the Switch. Perhaps a port might be in the works.
These are, of course, just suggestions. We’re going off of just a few things that line up. We’d love to hear your suggestions, below. If you want to know more about Level-5 Games, we have an article about The Snack World for 3DS. Or you could read about Fantasy Life Online’s Japanese Beta.

Once you enter the game you will be faced with an extensive avatar customization, hair, clothes, eye-color and more come with a huge variety of options.

Of course there will be a lot of loot, and rare items waiting to be collected.
The dungeons in The Snack World are randomly generated, this means that every dungeon you enter will look and feel different. This will help make the game feel fresh for longer. Beyond dungeons you will also be selecting a Jara, which is a term used for weapons in the game. You can design and prepare different Jaras to fight a variety of different monsters with different abilities.
You will receive different benefits from scanning Snacks and Jaras. While Jaras refer to any kind of weapons in the games, Snacks on the other side are Crystal Plates. These can contain and freeze monsters. For early adopters of the Video Game, Level-5 will have out a limited Jara: Crystal Sword that will only be available in limited run of The Snack World.
