Level-5 Soon To Announce Phenomenal Game

My top five guesses on what this game could be.

It appears as if everyone tweets, to the famous to, me, to even a man like Akihiro Hino, who just so happens to be Level-5‘s el presidente. And sometimes these tweets contain super, pant wetting hints that change lives. According to a recent tweet, Level-5 plans on announcing a game sometime in April. This is cool and everything, but it doesn’t stop there. He states: "Once this is announced, it will become an extremely anticipated title", like running down the streets tipping over cars kind of excited. Now a lot of game developers might say this and never pull through, but this is Level 5, a great company that makes some great games (minus White Knight Chronicles). So here are my thoughts on what game this could be.

Professor Layton: Perhaps it is time for another Professor Layton game. But instead of being on the DS they move it over to the Playstation 3. Imagine an RPG game of sorts that takes the best aspects of the DS game and adds more RPG elements to the equation.

Dark Cloud 3: This would be the perfect opportunity to make another Dark Cloud game. They announced a Dark Cloud 3 ages ago, but never got around to actually finishing it. The last two were on the Playstation 2, with a new console there needs to be a new game, because that’s how it works. They can apply what they learned in White Knight Chronicles and bring it to the third installment.

Dragon Quest X: It went from the Playstion 2, to the DS, and now it has to come out for the Playstation 3. Seriously, the last game sold better than hotcakes in Japan, they will make this game. The question is, when will they make it?

Though it could be an entirely new franchise that has never been made before. Either way this has to be good, or else I’ll go to Japan and make Level-5 a Level-4 with my fists.

I actually think a Professor Layton type game would be better on the Wii is they used the WiiMote in puzzle solving. I'm still playing Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box
I played the first two Dark Cloud games. They were fun.
I'm not sure if I want to join Twitter. I think it's the 150 character limit. I'm not one who is keen on abbreviation.

@GodLen: i hope for a portable darkcloud, and why all the ps3 game?
GodLen staff on March 14, 2010 at 11:02 p.m.
@Rayleon: Because I have a PS3 and I want more games! Yeah, I'm a jerk like that. 
FoxxFireArt moderator on March 14, 2010 at 11:11 p.m.
Doesn't sound jerky to me. Just sounds hopeful. I have a PS3 and I want more games for that too.
Hell, all I ask is for VIZ to publish Detective Conan with the proper names as an unedited version. Even if it costs more. Yet people treat me like I'm asking for it to be gold plated and printed on the Dead Sea Scrolls. This is pretty much the feeling of One Piece fans had watching helplessly as 4Kids was butchering the series with the consent of the copyright holders.

No people bitched at you because you used it as an excuse to steal from Viz.  You have every right to bitch about the name changes, and you did have a point that if companies want to stop pirating they should give the fans what they want as long as what they want is reasonable (and what you did want was reasonable).  The problem is that you then claimed that you now have the right to steal from Viz because you don't like them. 
When you got defensive and started complaining about how no one agreed with you did people began to call you delusional.   Stop blaming other people for your own actions. 
Also don't bring up your own article on Godlen's article, this page should be about Godlen, not you, your article had 6 pages of comments, go post in your article about your complaints.

@GodLen: no you are not, I AM A PS3 FANBOY, moar games for it couldn't be bad for anyone, except for my wallet, i just want more game for the psp

Maybe it's just because we live in a time when we are bombarded with the greatest XYZ in the world about a million and one times a day, but I just cant get excited for reveals like these anymore. Every new thing is announced as the greatest thing ever, and that by buying it our hair will grow back where we want it, fall out where we don't want it, lose weight, make us millions of dollars, ride a pony and have sex with a harem of super models while bungee jumping from a parachute onto a robot shark that can fly through space and time when it's actually just a god dam beer, can of pop, itch cream or a cheese burger. Maybe it's just my inner Scrooge Mcduck coming out, but I have learned to not let my excitement boil over until i see the thing for myself.  

@FoxxFireArt: Honestly man, as a fellow AV member and someone who cares, just stop with the war on DC for awhile. We all know how you feel about it, and we all agree that that what they did to the show was wrong, but you're just making yourself look silly by doing your best to bring it up in almost every single post you make. No matter what the topic is about you try to find some way to put in a jab at it, and it's just getting yourself a bad reputation. I'm not saying don't voice your opinions, but try to limit it to every other post, or every other other post, for awhile. You have beat the horse into a fine paste and the wind has already blown it away so just let the poor thing die already. 
Honestly, I say it because i care.

DQ10 has already been announced for the Wii, but we don't know yet who'll be developing it. I doubt that'll be their big announcement, though -- everyone pretty much already expects them to develop it. I think the only announcement that would immediately become a highly anticipated title is Dark Cloud 3. Perhaps Rogue Galaxy 2 as well. Or maybe they'll announce Capcom hired them to develop Breath of Fire VI (dude, that'd be the most awesomest thing ever).

They already have like 6 Professor Layton games out in Japan, so I highly doubt anyone'll give a damn if they bring that franchise to home consoles.
Rayleonon March 15, 2010 at 1:16 a.m.
@Axersia: well i do hope for either BOF or DC3
GodLen staff on March 15, 2010 at 1:20 a.m.
@Axersia: yeah you are right, it could be anything!

Are you even paying attention to why people don't like you?   

I thought I had problems, but at no point in time did I just ignore what other people are saying, you have problems, and I suggest you talk to someone about them.  A Doctor, a therapist, anyone seek help.

FoxxFireArt moderator on March 15, 2010 at 3:33 a.m.
Oh, I do know they are making a Professor Layton movie, I saw a trailer for that on GameTrailers quite a while back. I'm not sure how Level 5 is involved in that project though.
I wonder how they would make the movie. I hope it would have some puzzles worked into the plot. They worked them into some trailers. Have you seen these?
There is this trailer for the yet to be released in the US game. This one seems to involve time travel in the story.
JackSukeruon March 15, 2010 at 5:53 a.m.
Dark Cloud 3 would be nice, though I  wonder if it would be called that in Europe seeing as DC2 was called Dark Chronicle. Oh well, still a good game. 
Now for my guess as to what the announcement will be, hm... 
I'm gonna say that they're developing the new Zelda game, supervised by nintendo and for the PS3. That's about as likely as me winning a triathalon but admit it, it would be pretty awesome.
giaon March 15, 2010 at 8:31 a.m.
@FoxxFireArt: Ah, but therein lies the challenge! A good writer should be like a goldfish: you adapt to fit the space you're given <3 
@Axersia: What if it was another big tie-in thing? Like the game they're developing with Ghibli?  
@RockmanBionics: You know, after all this time, I have never actually played a single Zelda game. Unless you counted Super Smash Brothers =P
I remember enjoying (but never finishing) Dark Cloud 2. I'd play a new game in the franchise; it had some cool mechanics.
Oishi_47on March 15, 2010 at 8:34 a.m.
@RockmanBionics: There's a vast number of things to put after the word "Dark." Void, Sector, Age of Camelot, Summit..etc. The possibilities are endless. Also, I will be rooting for you in that triathlon. 
ThePsychoGameron March 15, 2010 at 9:34 a.m.
Don't forget, this could be Rogue Galaxcy 2,
Or if the presedetn is an idiot he could be reering to WKC2
But i believe a dark cloud 3 is the sagest assuption..... unless sega outsourced then it could be Shenmue 3
JackSukeruon March 15, 2010 at 2:45 p.m.
@gia: Never played Zelda? 4 serious? 
That's it, I'm revoking your existance license.
