Fantasy Life For Nintendo 3DS – First 55 Minutes

Nintendo 3DS-exclusive Fantasy Life launches today in Japan. The role-playing game is developed by Level-5 and Brownie Brown, which is a Nintendo-owned studio.

At the start of the game, players choose how they want their character to look. For example, you can choose whether you want to play as a boy or girl, and you can select from a variety of features, including different hairstyles, eyes and noses, to make your character suit your style.

There is no confirmation, yet, on whether Fantasy Life will be released in the West.

Thanks, Tilmen.
