Nintendo of America and game company, Level 5 announced the next role-playing game, Fantasy Life. Take on a new life, where you are much more than just that sword-wielding hero like Link in The Legend of Zelda, instead you will finally get to test out that saying, “If you think you can do it, then why don’t you walk in my shoes and see how it is then.” You will doing just that, going into someone else’s shoes, whether that be a miner, a cook, or a tailor, or even a blacksmith in order to make the swords that a classic hero would take onto the adventure. Fantasy Life is only for the Nintendo 3DS and came out this past Friday, October 24th for $39.99.
“Whether crafting, casting, hunting or battling, Fantasy Life offers an experience for all types of players,” mentioned Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales and Marketing, Scott Moffitt. “With so many different ways to play, all members of the family, as well as players of all skill levels, can find a Life that’s right for them.”
As in World of Warcraft or any game that has life classes, in Fantasy Life, players will get to experience the dream class they want from more than 12 different Life Classes that will offer “new ways to play and completely transform the role-playing game experience.” Even though you are limited to two in some games when it comes to learning skills for Life Classes, in Fantasy Life, you can only do one Life Class at a time, but you are able to actually switch up to another class and still use the skills that you learned in the previous class. Take on a world that is filled with paladins, pirates, and dragons to save the world of Reveria from chaos. “Each Life Class, like the combat-heavy Paladin, resource-gathering Woodcutter and crafting-focused Carpenter, comes with a separate set of skills to learn. Once learned, players can switch Life Classes at virtually any time to master more skills and abilities.”
With every Life Class, you will experience a different type of gear that comes with that class, the items that come with it, and also the Quests that will allow you to master your class, and finally of course an accompanying storyline. “In Fantasy Life, players’ choices help shape their adventures, not just their in-game jobs.”
You will be playing Fantasy Life solo, but the game does allow for players to have their friends via local wireless or others that are online in the Nintendo Universe, in order to help out with defeating difficult enemies and areas that meet along the way.
