Fantasy Life is a new game coming for the 3DS on September 26th for the UK and October for the US.

Embark on the adventure of your dream life as you craft, cast, fish, mine, battle and explore like never before. With the innovative Life system, your choices don't just upgrade characters—they help shape your journey. Explore a huge fantasy landscape beside surly dark paladins, slick pirate captains, regal princesses and others who share your taste for the unknown.


- Change to one of 12 Life classes at virtually any time to access different abilities. The combat class has fierce fighters, while the crafter class is skilled at making stronger weapons and tools. If you're not in the mood for battle, switch to a gatherer class and spend some time as a lumberjack or a fisherman.
- Choose your own adventure and play your way.
- The game reinvents itself with each Life you lead. Traverse an area as one Life class and return as another to gain different items.
- Explore a robust open world with distinct areas.
- Own a house in each town and decorate them with furniture you create.

It seems like a whole lot of fun. It seems like Animal Crossing: New Leaf with RPG elements. Sort of like how Rune Factory is to Harvest Moon. I really want to get it. I'd definitely choose to be a paladin. It seems like it has a lot of content, too, so it'd probably last a while. I'm excited for it.

What are your thoughts on this game? Are you looking forward to it as much as I am?

I feel like I'll be going into this expecting strong similarities to Animal Crossing, when that's not quite what Ill be getting. I was very drawn to this game since the first time I watched the trailer, and I was rather impressed with what it was offering. My only concern would be that trailers can be deceiving, and I might be falling in love with something that I'm not exactly getting.

I do plan to pick up a copy whenever I can, and if I can't get it in October then I'll ask for it as a gift. My expectations are relatively high, so I don't want to be disappointed.

I've been hyped for this game since I saw it in E3. It's been looking like a really fun game, and each new trailer just raises my hype for it. I like how it's a mixture of Animal Crossing and Rune Factory, which makes it that much more fun. I've never really been a big fan of life sims, but the career paths are really starting to intrigue me. I feel like some people will be disappointed with all of the grinding that is going to be involved, but I'm excited for it. I feel like all of those hours spent mining and fishing will be surprisingly fun for me. I just hope that they make it worth the grind through rewards.

I'm also very excited for the day-one DLC that is going to be available. It's going to unlock quite a bit of content and add plenty of hours into a 100 hours+ title. I've seen a lot of people complain about it, but they don't realize that Fantasy Life has been in Japan for two years. I'd say we're pretty lucky to be getting the DLC already, seeing as how Japan had to wait about a year for it. Personally, I plan to buy it the day I get Fantasy Life.

The online capabilities also excite me quite a lot. I can't wait to play with my friends so that we can take on bigger enemies with ease. I rarely get to sit down with games that my friends want to play online with me, so it makes it that much more special for me.

I am so excited for this game. October 24 seems so far away.
