Fantasy Life Interlude

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.

Look how excited I get when I make wool.

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:

They're usually little shadows much like animal crossing.

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.

My room. I made most of the stuff in it, the wallpaper, floor, curtains, and even the vegetable garden rug using my seamstress job.

  1. Hey! I also have Fantasy Life: Link.
    And I have been wondering how I can make screenshots.
    I have tried every button and the same button combination that’s used for Animal Crossing, but no dice. Can you help me out please? Thanks!

  2. Hi! I’m not sure if you have to get to a certain point in the story—like the point where you can start multiplaying, but at some point when you go to the life guild and talk to the connectivity ladies at the back counter (I don’t remember, but I think it might be the one on the right) they will unlock the ability to take screenshots. Then you can take them by pressing select or start.

  3. I wanted to ask about the dragon costume! I bought Fantasy Life Link physical version, can you only get the dragon costume if you previously had Fantasy Life and then upgraded to link?

  4. I never had a physical copy of the game. I bought the original eshop version and then upgraded through the game once Link was released. I’m not sure of the circumstances regarding obtaining the dragon costume. I know that someone in the post office (not at the window) gave it to me once I upgraded.

    My husband had a physical copy of the original and also upgraded in game and he got the dragon costume as well.
