Yasumi Matsuno, creator of the Ogre Battle
series and co-producer for Final Fantasy XII, has revealed the details of
Level-5's compilation title for the 3DS, which is set to showcase works from
some of Japan's most high profile game makers. The game, Called Guild 01, will
include four separate games designed by Goichi “Suda 51” Suda (Killer 7, No
More Heroes), Yoot Saito (Dreamcast's Seaman), Matsuno himself, and Yoshiyuki
Hirai from the popular Japanese comedy troupe America Zarigani.
As translated by Andriasang from the latest issue of
Famitsu, Suda 51's contribution will be a 3D shooting game entitled Kaiho
Shojo, in which players will lead a robot named Kaihoki on a demon kill-fest.
Yoot Saito's game will be an airport sim appropriately called Air Porter (yup),
and Yasumi Matsuno's offering is a “darkness fantasy” RPG entitled Crimson
Shroud. Lastly, comedian Yoshiyuki Hirai's game, Rental Bukiya de Omasse, will
be another RPG centered around the life and times of a typical RPG weapon shop
The game will be handled by Level-5,
Matsuno's new home base which he joined back in June. No word if the title will
make its way west, however more details about Guild 01 and other upcoming
projects will be announced at the Level 5 Vision press event this Saturday.
Is this a game you'd like to see shopped
outside of Japan?
