I'm so excited for this game. Probably my most anticipated game since Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Waiting until September to play it is bordering on torture. ;_;

Yeah! I've been waiting for this since I saw it in Nintendo Dream so long ago...

Nearly bought a Japanese 3DS for this, nearly bought the game anyway so I could 'convince' my friend he should let me 'borrow' his Japanese system for an unspecified length of time.

Is it September now? I originally expected 2015, then someone posted October, and now September... Let's hope there are no delays!

I think Europe is September 26th & USA is October 24th? Those dates are just about close enough that I'd think they're reasonably confident they'll make it. It was one of the main things I wanted from E3 so I was so happy to see it actually announced & was shocked at how fast we're getting it after announcement.

I've just been watching the videos from the Treehouse at E3 & it looks so great. I feel like it is going to take up so much of my time that I'm a bit scared!

Gosh, I know what you mean. For awhile I bought Japanese gaming magazines just for the Fantasy Life stuff (don't ask me for any details, I purposely forgot everything because it hurt so much, and the magazines are buried who knows where).

Grr... I'm a bit frustrated that the US seems to be getting it later, but at the same time, it's better than 2015!

I too can't wait for this, woohoo.

Will you be getting it digital or a cartridge? I've been getting everything digital since last June, but I kind of want to be able to actually hold this game. I'm so excited.

"Grr... I'm a bit frustrated that the US seems to be getting it later, but at the same time, it's better than 2015!"
I'm just thankful they're actually releasing it so getting it this year is a bonus!

"Will you be getting it digital or a cartridge? I've been getting everything digital since last June, but I kind of want to be able to actually hold this game. I'm so excited."
It seems like a game that I'll be playing for a long time so I'll most likely get the cartridge as it'll be staying in my 3DS for ages. People online seem to be spending 100+ hours on it maxing out all the stats and stuff.

Do you think we'll get the Soundtrack too, or no? Or maybe another preorder gift?

And I know there's multiplayer, but it hasn't been confirmed if this will include the Link! Update?

I'd love to get the soundtrack as a pre-order bonus or something but I'm not sure if we'll get it. All the awesome extras they get in Japan rarely seem to make it over here.

They were playing local multiplayer at E3 & the option for online was there too so I'd assume we get the Link! update included or can download it at launch. It's probably like Bravely Default where they waited for the updated version to be done before they started preparing it for western release.

I'll be getting the cartridge. I've always loved having something to hold onto, and I'd rather wait to get to the shops than wait for a download. Something to do with having it yet not having it, understand? Wind Waker HD and Pikmin 3 were frustrating enough!

Who's doing localization? I haven't done as much research as I probably should have, but depending on who's doing it, we may or may not get something awesome as a bonus.

Yet just when you thought you'd be getting something extra, you can be disappointed. Rune Factory 4 was done by Xseed, which made me really, really happy because I don't really like Natsume and titles published by Xseed usually get some really fantastic packages. Nothing, not even a soundtrack... I nearly pre-ordered the Japanese version because it came with a CD AND earbuds!

They'd better include Link! I remember seeing it at my local Japanese game shop selling for nearly as much as the game itself! They can get away with stuff like that in Japan, but I can't see many Westerners putting up with that...

Oh I didn't know the western Bravely Default was an updated version, how nice of them. Was that like a different release or an update?

"Who's doing localization? I haven't done as much research as I probably should have, but depending on who's doing it, we may or may not get something awesome as a bonus."
I don't really understand what localization is, other than bringing foreign games to where you live, but isn't Nintendo doing all the stuff?

I'd be fine if we at least got a key chain or something for preordering.

Hmm, not sure if I want to get the cartridge, but having the box to look at would be nice. If there's a preorder gift, then sure.

They released Bravely Default first & then released Bravely Default: For The Sequel as a separate game & as a DLC update for the original (think that's the same as how Fantasy Life Link! worked?).

Oh ok, I always get For the Sequel and Bravely Second confused. Yeah, Fantasy Life Link! got it's own release as both a separate game, and paid DLC for the original.

I'm so excited for this game it's a bit scary. I keep randomly thinking about how much I want it. I'm caught in a dilemma of wanting to find out as much as I can but not wanting to spoil everything before I even get to play the game.

Gosh, me too. There's a pretty neat thread over at the Fantasy Life reddit page, a Japanese copy owner has been answering questions. You'll see me there heh.

I've dressed my character in New Leaf as a pirate to get in the mood, can't wait!

"I don't really understand what localization is, other than bringing foreign games to where you live, but isn't Nintendo doing all the stuff?"
That's what I read, but I'm still not sure. Localization is indeed whichever company is doing translation, etc. to bring the game to your region. Some companies do a better job than others, and some companies are more generous when it comes to offering bonuses.

With any luck, Nintendo will realize how anticipated this game is and will give us a little something extra. I'm not holding my breath, though, because I was surprised when New Leaf came with nothing. And I seem to remember Ocarina of Time not getting anything for the NA release, although Australia got a little plastic ocarina with music sheet. It just seems like only Mario-related titles have been getting any pre-order bonuses lately.

Took this from Kotaku's article, "Nintendo's Secret Weapon." Pretty cool read if you haven't yet.
"This is the Treehouse—the division of Nintendo responsible for shepherding the company’s games from Japan to North American shores. Composed of some 80 people across several different branches, the Treehouse team translates text from Japanese to English, compiles videos, puts together marketing plans, and works to ensure that the company’s games are as polished as fans expect them to be."
Also from one of the Treehouse videos, the man in the middle said where's he's from, but I can't remember. And he said that all the dialogue and stuff would be like a 3 thousand page novel. Ohmigosh, you're right Sonnic, 21 thousand pages! Yikes.

Yeah, that's true. If there's no preorder gift, I'll go digital then.

I swear he said 21,000 pages which is even more ludicrous. Thanks for the link to the reddit by the way!

Nintendo of Europe gave us bonuses for Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Fire Emblem: Awakening & Luigi's Mansion 2 but they haven't done anything similar for more recent games so I don't think we'll get anything for Fantasy Life.

You know, I think I may have got localization confused with publisher. As in the localization team does translation, etc. while the publisher actually releases the thing.

Also when it comes to dialogue, etc. I'm not surprised in the least. Especially when we're talking about an RPG with loads of options. Whoever's editor also seems to matter, because I remember a friend telling me about an especially verbose editor who seemed to insist on cramming the dialogue boxes as full as possible. I forget which game he was talking about, but can you imagine facing a wall of text everytime a character opens his/her/its mouth?

"Nintendo of Europe gave us bonuses for Animal Crossing: New Leaf"
Oh, you're so lucky!

I was going to say that this thread was probably posted to early compared to it's EU September 26th, and NA October 24th release, but then I looked through your Tomodachi Life thread, and it moved it pretty well.

When I lived in Los Angeles, I StreetPassed someone who was playing it! It was a year ago, but I think it's cool that I could go back and see that Mii whenever I want to. But whenever I do, I get extremely jealous.

I think games like this & Tomodachi Life appeal to people who play Animal Crossing so making a thread earlier can help drum up interest. & like you said, the Tomodachi thread managed to have a slow but steady stream of posts before picking up the pace when it released. Hopefully more people will come to the thread as the release gets closer. I mostly just wanted somewhere to let out my pent up anticipation for this game though!

Were you excited for Fantasy Life at the time? If I StreetPassed someone who had played Fantasy Life before it had been announced for a western release I'd probably have died of jealousy/tried to steal it from them. Now I know we're getting it I would hopefully react more calmly...

I didn't know what Fantasy Life was at the time, but I wondered why I couldn't see any info for it on the eShop. I didn't look into it that much, and I can't really remember when I started to, but now I can't wait for it!

And another thing, I can't seem to find a Fantasy Life Miiverse community for Japan. I'd look at that all day.

mejjos: Hi from L.A. Thank goodness I never activated streetpass for Mii Plaza. I'd probably go nuts everytime I SPed someone with Fantasy Life shown as the game last played! I get excited enough as it is whenever I SP someone with a Japanese NL model home or Tomodachi Life export item.

I don't really look at Miiverse, but can you see the communities for games not released in your region? Methinks I should check with my friend's Japanese system... Ooh! Darnit, he's going to have to make a NNID for that first! Welp, I know what I'll be bugging him about tomorrow.

Riesz cool, ha. L.A. Doesn't mess around with their StreetPasses, they have everything over there!

Yeah, you can change the region that you're in to see the Miiverse communities for Japan or Oceania and Europe. I can't see Fantasy Life's icon on the list, so they might now have one

Also, good news for importers, apparently the Link! Update is now FREE on the eShop for the original game.
