Combining the charm of games like Animal Crossing with the roleplaying experience of such titles as Dragon Quest or Final Fantasy, Fantasy Life for the 3DS lets players shape their own roleplaying experience by taking on one of twelve different occupations and roles that shape the way they experience the game world around them. Each Life Role comes complete with a unique set of skills that are all equally useful for making your way through the game’s story, so no one will feel left behind regardless of the life they choose to lead. On top of this, players can also use skills learned in other roles even when switching to another, encouraging players to sample all that (fantasy) life has to offer.
“Whether crafting, casting, hunting or battling, Fantasy Life offers an experience for all types of players,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “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.”
Players can complete their quest solo, but it never hurts to have a little help from your friends. So would-be adventurers can team up with both local wi-fi and via spot pass, appearing in each players game as they help to build a living world to play in.
Fantasy Life arrives on the 3DS This Friday, the 24th. And Make sure to follow us on Twitter @APGNation for even more gaming news and reviews.
