Every year, Level-5 likes to do a Vision presentation, where it announces new games. The Vision 2013 presentation began on Nico Nico Douga at 5am CST this morning. While we weren’t live blogging it, due to a combination of language barrier and it was way too early, I am here to let you know about all the announcements that came from the presentation.
The good news is, four new games were announced during Level-5′s presentation. The bad news is, we’re probably only going to see two of them. That’s because two of the new games are Inazuma Eleven offshoots, and that series has never been brought to North America.
Still, let’s look through what was announced.
- Layton 7 is another Professor Layton spin-off for 3DS, Android and iOS devices, just like Layton Brothers: Mystery Room. Details are scant, but it appears to be a multiplayer, puzzle RPG where each person picks on eof the seven main characters, shown in that lovely image at the top of this article, and solves mysteries for points. There’s no release date at the moment, but odds are we’ll eventually see it outside of Japan.
- Inazuma Eleven GO Galaxy: Big Bang and Super Nova are the latest 3DS installments in the soccer RPG series. As usual, there are two versions because different players are available in both. Each game tasks players with creating a soccer team and winning matches to become the best. Japan gets it before 2013 ends.
- Inazuma Eleven Online is going to be a free-to-play, PC version of Inazuma Eleven. There’s no idea how it will work yet, but we’ll know before too long. It’s being released in Japan before 2013 ends.
- Wonder Flick is supposedly a 1,000 hour fantasy RPG coming to just about every platform ever. Seriously. Save data is shared between the Android, iOS, PS4, Vita, Wii U, and Xbox One versions of the game. Players create a character, then explore a fantasy world and go on different quests. The PS4 and Xbox One versions will also allow for touchscreen controls via either a smartphone/tablet connection or SmartGlass. It’s free-to-play and the Android and iOS versions will come first in Japan in November 2013. The console and Vita versions will arrive later, in 2014. I’m pretty sure it will be released worldwide.
There was nothing to get really excited about during Level-5′s presentation, but still. It’s always nice to hear about new games.
