Fantasy Life to feature online co-op, Streetpass features

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?

Smash Bros: Meta Knight, Limited Edition Pack and more

Only 51 days remain until the release of Super Smash Bros. for 3DS, yet the announcements keep rolling out. A returning character, another stage, a limited edition pack AND a Smash Bros. themed sale were all announced over the last 24 hours.

Kirby fans can now rejoice, as Sakurai announced the return of Meta Knight. After teasing Meta Knight’s return on Monday, by posting a picture of a Mii fighter wearing a Meta Knight costume, today Sakurai confirmed Meta Knights return. He also verified that the Battleship Halberd stage will be coming back as well. Sakurai wrote:

“‘Looks like there was an impostor in the earlier posts, so I introduced him to my sword!’… I’ll leave it up to your imagination if he really said that or not. The veteran hero, Meta Knight, returns to battle!! We didn’t forget the Battleship Halberd either!!”

In other Smash Bros. news, Nintendo of Europe announced that a Limited Edition Smash Bros. Pack will be released on October 3rd. A special red and black console, with a Super Smash Bros. motif emblazoned on the front, this limited edition console will come with a digital copy of Super Smash Bros. preloaded on the system. So far, this limited release has only been confirmed for Europe. No mention of a North American release has been made at this time.

Lastly, Nintendo of Europe also announced an extensive eShop sale, focused around several Smash Bros. characters. From August 14-21, games featuring some of the New Challengers will be on sale. The following week, August 21-28, games featuring some of the Veteran Fighters will go on sale. So far this has only been confirmed by Nintendo of Europe. Much like the special edition 3DS, no confirmation of a North American sale has been announced. The following games will be on sale in the New Challengers sale:

Game Boy Stage for New Smash Bros?

As the days count down towards one of the most talked about releases this year, Sakurai continues to drop various hints and sneak pics through his Miiverse account. Yesterdays screenshot appears to reveal a new Game Boy stage. Along with the image above, Sakurai wrote “Pic of the day “?Ba-ding!?”…. If you turn on the 3D effect, it really looks like there is a Game Boy inside the screen.” Sakurai did not confirm if this is in fact a stage, but it certainly appears that way. This would be a truly fitting stage design, as the Game Boy just turned 25 years old this year. Much like Melee’s Game & Watch stage, the new stage would be an homage to the glorious beginnings of Nintendo’s handheld lineup.

A glimpse of Super Smash Bros. Trophy Shop/Gallery

Completionists and collectors have a large task looming in their near future. With over 540 trophies to be collected, the new Super Smash Bros. games will keep players extremely busy. While the trophies are meant to be collected throughout the game, they can also be purchased with in-game currency or Nintendo 3DS Play Coins.

Recently, Masahiro Sakurai shared a few screenshots on a Miiverse post, giving fans a glimpse of the Trophy Shop and Trophy Gallery for the 3DS version of the upcoming game.

Along with multiple screenshots, Sakurai shared the following:

“Here’s the trophy gallery for the 3DS version. You can rotate the trophies by drawing circles on the bottom screen. Super Smash Bros. Brawl had tons of trophies, but rumor has it that the 3DS version alone may have more than Brawl. Looks like the Dr. Wily that we made from scratch for the 3DS version is on his knees in disbelief.”

“Here’s something new – the trophy shop. If you’re having a hard time getting certain trophies, why not just buy them? They sometimes go on sale, too.”

With a release date of October 3rd, the 3DS version is certainly ramping up fans excitement and looks to be a surprisingly fulfilling version, with plenty of replay value. With over 540 trophies, will you claim them all?
