Level-5’s new IP, The Snack World, coming to 3DS

…and also smartphones

Along with its Yo-Kai Watch and Fantasy Life announcements, Level-5 also revealed a new IP known as The Snack World. It’s going to be another mixed media project with manga, anime, and games being developed for 3DS and smartphones.

The announcement featured a short film introducing the game’s characters (above), as well as a bit of gameplay demonstration (below), complete with a keychain item that functions similarly to amiibo. Players can scan items into The Snack World, and receive maps to find different items.

It may not be Ni no Kuni 2 or Dark Cloud 3, but it looks cute enough. I like the aesthetic, with cartoon characters and adorable monster designs. Now we just have to see if it ever makes it out of Japan.
