    Level-5 has officially announced the release date for their game Time Travellers which will be released on the 3DS, PSP and the Vita. All the platforms get the game on July 12 in Japan. The retail versions are ¥5,980. The PSP and PS Vita download versions are ¥4,980. The official site can be found here.


    We previously detailed the story, but here's a recap. In the year 2031, mankind has created a 2000 meter "Space Elevator" in Tokyo Bay. Eighteen years prior, a great disaster known as "Lost Hole" caused destruction to the city, but people quickly recovered, and Tokyo is now developing into an even larger, more modern city than before.

    The story begins with announcer Hina Fushimi conducting an interview with once great scientist Kyugo Shindo. During the interview, the research facility the two are in suffers a sudden explosion. If the explosions continue, the result could be a 50 kilometer blast zone.

    The game system section mentions the "full voice, full motion" drama that Level-5 promised at the game's announcement some time back. There's one actual gameplay system mentioned at the site: a Quick Timer Event system. More gameplay system details will be shared in future updates.

    Hmmm. Not enough info for me to judge quite yet. Chances are this might be a Japan only game though :\ .

    I'm looking forward to this a lot... Even though the lack of details, it just struck me right away as something i'd like... love at first sight-ish... :) gut feeling...
    However, I would like to know how the 3DS and Vita games will differ... two screens vs one, layout, etc... I know one will have 3D and one will have better graphics, but apart from that :)

    Considering that the game is releasing on the PSP too, I'm sure that it will look about the same on all platforms aside from a few minor things (anti-aliasing on the Vita and perhaps the 3DS in 2D). It'll probably be like Zero Escape where the 3DS version has the menu on the bottom screen.

    Gaming industry is killing me.. Why you ask..? Make games (Story, Graphics, Engines, etc) and release them only in Japan. "Translation procedures are so expensive!" :I

    ps. Release this around the globe..

    Level 5 opened an North American branch last year to localize their Japanese titles. I'm sure this will be brought over here.

    I WANT THIS.

    But first, they really need to give us Mask of Miracles. C'mon Level 5.

    True, but still so many games are left either in the US or the EU region even though the translations (to English at least) have been made.. Hopefully this, like many other games, gets released abroad :)

    This game sounds like it could use some Doc Brown in the mix.

    I don't really see the worship of Level-5 honestly, I can't say I've enjoyed anything they made. I'll be giving this a pass.

    Well I'll give them credit on Layton, I don't like the games simply because of their genre but they're well designed, they just don't appeal to me. But DQIX was terrible from what I tried and Inazuma Eleven was just a mess.

    Does Level-5 have some sort of time travel fetish or something?

    Every single one of the series they've produced has some sort of time traveling element in it.... And now they just made one that's fully about it.

    I'm lol-ing hard, but at least they handle time travel pretty well.... I think.

    I've a feeling owning this anywhere near mainland China is enough to get you arrested. (+5 points if you catch my drift)

    I hope the story on this one is good. I want something rivalling 999 or Ever-17.
