Level 5 CEO Akihiro Hino has told the Nikkei Trendy Net (translated by Siliconera) that the developers 3DS title Fantasy Life has shipped around 300,000 units in Japan. The title sold out at release last month and Level 5 wants to turn it into a franchise.
Level 5 is also preparing a big content update to the game which will be released later this year. The update will add new quests and multiplayer.
The game since it was released in Japan has since been trademarked in both North America and Europe.
