Level-5, the producers of games like Layton and Inazuma Eleven, and Brownie Brown, the makers of Nintendo's Mother 3, have joined forces with the great Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu on this new 3DS title.
Fantasy Life is set in the world of Fantazeal, a place which inhabitants refer to as Mars, and apparently a place which has been "marked by the moon". A long time ago a prophet once warned that the destruction of the world would come when a shadow comes to pass over Mars. First signs of the prophesied destruction become apparent, but the people of the Fantazeal continue to lead their free, peaceful lives, blissfully unaware of the danger that lies ahead...
According to Level-5, Fantasy Life allows players to experience life in a world contained within the 3DS. You start the game off by creating your own avatar, going through a character create process which lets you set name, gender, physical appearance, and "Life," the latter being the game's name for your in-game job. Your choice of one of the game's 20 life's affects how the game plays out for you. Each type of life requires that players undertake certain so-called "Life Quests," which are quests that must be cleared daily. Once you've progressed through the game as one of these life's, you'll end up seeing what Level-5 refers to as a "small ending."
