Suda 51, Yasumi Matsuno and Yoot Saito Team Up For Level-5's Guild 01
3DS title includes four games from four creators.
The identity of Yasumi Matsuno's first project as a Level-5 employee has been revealed in this week's Famitsu. The 3DS title is called Guild 01, and it's due in 2012.
Matsuno, who's known for the Ogre series and Final Fantasy XII, isn't the only big name involved with the game. Grasshopper Manufacture's Suda 51 is working on it as well. So is Vivarium's Yoot Saito (Seaman).
There are actually four games in Guild 01, each made by a different creator. Famitsu provides the following details:
- Kaiho Shojo
- A 3D shooting game from Suda 51. You take control of a robot known as "Kaihoki" (literally "liberation machine") and blast away at demon beasts. The game has animation from Bones.
- Rental Bukiya de Omasse
- This RPG is being developed by comedy group America Zarigani's Yoshiyuki Hirai. You play as a weapon shop owner and create weapons for sale (or presumably rental) to RPG adventurers.
- Air Porter
- A simulation from Yoot Saito. You play as the man in charge at an airport and must expediently manage baggage. Do a good job, and the airport will expand.
- Crimson Shroud
- A "darkness fantasy" adventure RPG from Matsuno.
Level-5 Vision will be held on Saturday morning (Japan time) so expect additional details on Guild 01 and its four included games over the week.
