I'd like to formally announce my departure from Level-5, effective last month. With my work done on the domestic and overseas version of my latest 3DSWare game, it was good timing for me to step down and take a short break in order to recharge for my next project. My deepest thanks to everyone at Level-5 and everyone playing our games for your continued support.
Guild01 is a compilation release on the Nintendo 3DS of four distinct titles.
Designed by Goichi Suda, this title is a shooter where the player controls Shoko (a high school girl who became President of Japan after her father was assasinated). Shoko must pilot a mech to fight against an invading country who's goal is to steal all of Japan's energy. The game features animated scenes by anime studio BONES (Darker Than Black, Fullmetal Alchemist & Sword of the Stranger)
America Zarigani's (Japanese comedy duo) Yoshiyuki Hirai has written a title which has a father and son who craft weapons for heroes. The player must use rhythmic gameplay for the forging, and if forged poorly the hero can fail.
Directed by Yoot Saito, this simulation title puts the player in charge of an airport in which the player is responsible for ensuring planes leave on time and baggage is moved quickly.
This title is the first helmed by Yasumi Matsuno since his departure from Final Fantasy XII due to illness. The adventure/RPG title has the player controlling a "Chaser" who must search for people. The game is set 1,000 years in the past.
