I’m taking a break from playing Animal Crossing in the evenings (and looking for the damnable scorpion) and playing Fantasy Life for a while. I played it back when it came out but stopped because a million other games came out, I didn’t have time etc etc.
They released an updated version in Japan on July 25th increasing levels and adding internet play and the ability to take screenshots. You can buy it in game for about $20. I shelled out the cash and have been playing it with renewed devotion. For some reason my multiplayer didn’t unlock once I upgraded (I may have missed something?), so I started over and decided to test out the seamstress job after leveling up as a sorceress for a bit.
In my previous game I had been working on the fishing job, which also is surprisingly fun. Occasionally you run into giant rare fish like this one:
Good news is I hear it’s going to be localized and you (we?) probably won’t have to buy two games to get the internet functionality and the screenshot functionality. Bad news, god only knows when it will get here.
