Prepare to have no Social Life
This game looks absolutely wonderful! As has been mentioned, very much like Animal Crossing and other similar games of that genre. But waaayyy more variety to the gameplay. With the option to change your "Life" at will, no more debates on which one or two classes to be. Be them all! This game is apparently so massive, that you most likely will only complete it 100% once, let alone even that if you somehow manage to keep a social life at the same time haha. After watching the E3 videos of this game, it was a no-brainer. Gotta preorder this game asap!
Get a Life
The whole purpose of the game, is you are starting your life! right away you pick from a variety of lives that sets the whole plot of the game. I was not surprised when i saw that the first three life options were paladin, hunter, and magician. What i was really surprised about was the other classes ; mercenary, cook, alchemist, fisherman, woodcutter, tailor, miner, carpenter, and blacksmith. This game is going to be one of those games you can play over and over again and never get bored. The only con about this game I rated it a point down for, is how slow the start of it is. I know a lot of gamers experience a slow start in a game and quit it. If you can get past that though, this game is fantastic.
I have to admit, I only found out about the game today (okay, knew about it but watched the trailer today,) The game looks awesome! 12 different playable jobs with the ability to switch (nearly) on the fly, pets, fighting monsters, leveling up, etc. It's like Rune factory, harvest moon, and final fantasy combined! And it's going to be getting first day DLC! Based on what the European DLC price was, the North American DLC will probably be around $10. With the DLC you can get your levels higher, two more pet types are available (besides dog and cat, bird and dragon will be available,) and origin island will be open (plus a lot more!) You can have up to three pets and they can fight with you! Multiplayer is also available with up to two friends. Come one and come all! This is going to be an amazing adventure!
This game is RPG gold!
My friend suggested this game to me a few days ago since it was coming out soon. Boy, am I glad I took that advice. The sound in the game is soothing and fun to listen to. The music changes depending on the situation. The gameplay is pretty straightforward for the most part. I love RPGs, and this one has me hooked. I have been glued to my 3DS because there is just tons to do in Fantasy Life. So far I'm only level 23 and have 3 lifestyles, and there are 9 more lifestyles to play with. I'm still in low level skills for some things. I enjoy gathering and making my own weapons and armors! Areas to explore are pretty simple and accessible, you cannot progress without completing certain quests, and there are lots of them all over the place. I highly recommend this game for those who love a good RPG.
Vast amount of things to do.
Been playing very frequently since NA release. If you ever get bored of grinding the story, relax and do the other 30 things in the game. Go hunting, make furniture, explore and find secret caves, sit around and listen to the great soundtrack, etc. It's loads of fun with friends too!
Does anyone know if there is a strategy guide for this. I would really like one. makes things easier
counting down the days
I want to play this game so badly.
Just a few more days go.
I Love the harvest moon and rune factory.
But this one looks just as fun :)
Happy this game is here!
I am really excited about this game!
When I found out this game was coming to America, I could not believe it. This game is like a mixture of the Harvest Moon games and Animal Crossing, only with a lot more options for character design. This game was also one of the top games in 2013 in Japan, and had a lot of downloadable content. I hope they will release some of those here in America, too.
I'm so happy it's coming! XD
I have been waiting for a U.S release of this game scene it was announced for Japan in 2012 I believe. Now it finally is coming here. I can't wait. It has wonderful charm and humor. If you like games like Rune Factory or even rpgs in general I recommend this.
Looking very fun and entertaining
I am enjoying the footage from Nintendo's E3 Treehouse. Very customizable and looks like a great experience. Seems like it has an Animal Crossing feel with RPG elements and story telling. Going to put a deposit on it for my pre-order today.
