Fantasy Life Is Registered In The USA

Runaway success life simulator from Level-5, Fantasy Life, had its trademark registered outside of Japan in the US. This follows on the heels of the registration being made last month in Europe as well. This is all pointing to the game being localised for other territories outside of Japan.


Level-5 have previously gone on record saying that they want to develop Fantasy Life into a new franchise. This should be a unique, niche title for the Nintendo 3DS that will garner a large following in the West.

Japan Weekly Sales Charts

Time for yet another look into the sales for hardware and software from the Land of the Rising Sun. At this point though, are we really expecting to see anything different from the past year? Probably not but let’s take a look anyways!

The 3DS continues to stampede through anything in its path holding onto the top spot for hardware sales with Nintendo’s newly released next-gen console, the Wii U, holding onto 2nd place. Wii U sales did experience a slump down from the 122,356 units it sold last week however.

On the software front, Animal Crossing New Leaf continues to score for Nintendo taking out the top spot with 2nd place occupied by Fantasy Life, also for the 3DS. But, enough talk, let the charts below do all the talking.
