If you’re struggling to figure out The Starship Damrey, congratulations: you got the point.

A series of mysterious trademarks made by Level-5 have a familiar tang about them, suggesting a third compilation of 3DS games from the Japanese publisher.

The Starship Damrey, which is Kazuya Asano and Takemaru Abiko’s entry in the Guild02 series, will be released through eShop in North America May 16. In the game, players awaken from stasis in space without any knowledge of what’s going on around them, and must start exploring the ship in order to find out. Starship Damrey, along with the other Guild02 titles Bugs vs Tanks! and Attack of the Friday Monsters! A Tokyo Tale, will release for 3DS. Thanks, Nintendo Life.

Level-05 has re-opened its “Black Box” site. The last time we saw this particular teaser, it heralded western localisations of three games in the Guild01 compilation. It’s just the latest item to plonk on a growing pile of evidence suggesting some of the included titles are headed west; expect more information at this week’s Nintendo Direct. In related news, Guild01 titles are on sale on the 3DS eShop this week. Hooray!

Fantasy Life developer Level-5 has revealed that it has shipped 300,000 copies of its loveable 3DS RPG-town builder in Japan since launch.

Level-5 is developing a new title for PS4, according to company boss Akihiro Hino.

A western release of Level-5 and Brownie Brown’s unusual sim Fantasy Life seems more and more likely. In addition to a European trademark filed last month, Siliconera reports the developer has moved to secure a US one. Unfortunately, there’ve been no rumblings from any of the usual publishers, but perhaps a 3DS eShop release is possible. Fantasy Life released in Japan in December and sold out almost immediately; Level-5 is already planning sequels.

A post on the PlayStation community forums advises that online play for White Knight Chronicles and its sequel will close on June 18. The first of the Level-5 PlayStation 3 RPGs released in 2010, and the second arrived in 2011, both trailing a Japanese release. They feature a sort of MMO-lite multiplayer component, which despite lengthy single-player storylines, were really the heart of both games. Neither exactly set critics on fire, though. As US and European players shared servers, this appears to be the end, so get after any last trophies you were chasing.

Fantasy Life developers Level-5 and 1-UP Studio have trademarked their 3DS town-building RPG in Europe, placing fresh hope on a western release.

Professor Layton and the Azran Legacies will be the recipient of a new puzzle a day for a full year, along with the addition of 20 standard puzzles. To help you keep track of the puzzles, Keats the cat is returning, and will he will also remind you to complete puzzles you left unsolved in the game. So, while this may be the last game starring our gentlemanly top hat-wearing professor, at least you will have a bevy of puzzles for him to help solve. Professor Layton and the Azran Legacies released in Japan on 3DS last month, as we expect it to head westward in either early or late fall, as with previous entries. Thanks, Siliconera.

Liberation Maiden, Goichi Suda’s 3DS shooter, has made a surprise appearance on iDevice.

Professor Layton and the Azran Legacies, known in Japan as Professor Layton and the Legacy of the Super Civilization A, has been given the screenshots treatment.
Siliconera has posted the lot. The title will be the last in the prequel trilogy for the series, and, sadly, the last featuring Herschel Layton. I’m trying not to get choked up over it, really. The game is due in Japan on February 28, and those in the west can probably expect a 3DS localization in the fall sometime.

Professor Layton And The Azran Legacies is the final Layton title from Nintendo and Level-5, but you can bet it won’t be relaxing on the puzzle side of things. Nintendo has released a new trailer for the 3DS title, showing a few of them in action.

Would you, by any chance, enjoy looking at 47 new screenshots and artworks from Level-5′s latest puzzling adventure, Professor Layton and the Azran Legacies? Then allow me to direct your attention to Gematsu, which has neatly collated these wonders where your eye can trip merrily over their many and varied forms. The Azran Legacies, alas, has not been confirmed for western release yet, but all the previous core Professor Layton games have made their way beyond Japan, and this latest tale will not even reach Japanese gamers until the end of the month. It is but the second Professor Layton game to grace Nintendo’s 3DS.

Ni No Kuni launches this week in Europe, but will it help rekindle the West’s interest in classic JRPG larks? Dave Cook argues that yes, it will.

Namco Bandai has issued a response to the Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch Wizard’s Edition “oversold” fiasco which distributor Digital River claimed occurred due to “an error in [its] ordering system.”
