This weeks edition of Japanese gaming bible Famitsu sheds light on Level 5’s upcoming game Time Travellers. The game is being developed for Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation Vita and the PlayStation Portable. Time Travellers is currently geared up for a 2012 release.
The story behind Time Travelers kicks off a few years in the future as a mysterious hole called the “Lost Hole” appears in the skies above Tokyo accompanied by an explosion. Central Tokyo is destroyed, and many lives are lost.
Things jump 18 years, to 4/28/2031. Tokyo is a futuristic city, with holographic signs filling the streets, and a building called the “Space Elevator” rising from Tokyo Bay. While there’s a “space” in the name, the building is only 2,000 meters high. It serves as a power source for the city.
