Level 5's collaboration with Brownie Brown, Fantasy Life, is still on track for a 2012 release on 3DS in Japan, according to Famitsu.
The game has been in development for a fair time, and has a significant number of talented folk working on the title - including Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu and art/logo designer Yoshitaka Amano and has seen all sorts of changes in its visual direction - from the original 2D sprite-based concept on the Nintendo DS, to a sort of 3D update and now an Animal Crossing-esque design.
The game is a town/battle hybrid, with optional battles and a primary focus on exploring and interacting with fellow townsfolk. Players are able to dabble in the likes of chef, alchemist, minor and other jobs.
Japanese magazine Famitsu confirmed the title for a 2012 release, as well as revealing the title in its latest form.
