Fantasy Life will be getting an expansion in Japan

The ‘Link’ add-on enhances online play

Readers know that I’ve been clamoring for an international release of Fantasy Life for quite some time. As a roaring success in Japan, Level-5 has already seen fit to update the game, calling the enhancement Fantasy Life Link!

Most of the upgrades are online-centric, adding four player online co-op, a new Link Mode (messaging), an all-new website with game statistics, and a brand new island with more content. The upgrade will launch on July 25th for 4,980 yen. If you own the original, you can upgrade for a 2,000 yen fee.

I’m hoping that Level-5 is saturating the Japanese market before announcing a localization, leaving us with the enhanced Link version as a base package. Between this and Animal Crossing: New Leaf, the 3DS is the place to be for life simulation games.
