Level-5 to announce new game in next issue of Famitsu

Tuesday, 13th April 2010 15:40 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino has tweeted that the Professor Layton developer a game in the works, and it’s to be announced in this week’s Famitsu.

Here’s the tweet, roughly translated from Japanese:

New projects will be announced next week in Famitsu.

Per IGN, Famitsu leaks come out on Tuesday night PST, and a previous tweet stated a new title would be announced in the next issue, so sometime tonight while we sleep it will come to pass.

Hino stated that this new title would be a highly anticipated one, so start your guessing engines now.

Other games in development from Level-5 include: Inazuma Eleven 3, Ni no Kuni (DS), Danbol Senki (PSP), Inazuma Eleven Break (unspecified console), the next Layton game (DS), a console version of Ni no Kuni, Ushiro (PSP) and Fantasy Life (DS).

We just want the third Layton game over here Hino, pretty please. Until then, though, we will just have to be pacified with the anime film in September.

    So wait…

    Are they all announced in this week’s Famitsu or just one and the next four will be in next week’s Famitsu?

    According to the tweet, Moti, five games are to be announced in next week’s issue – if the translator did it’s work properly.

    According to a tweet read by IGN, one game is to be announced in the issue hitting stands tonight if they read the tweet properly.

    So, since he tweeted it on the 10th, which was technically last week since it was done on Saturday, it is safe to assume all will be revealed tomorrow.

    I’ve mailed their PR company to check at any rate.
