The lights are on
Out today, Attack Of The Friday Monsters! A Tokyo Tale is the story of a young boy who's town is overtaken every Friday by massive monsters. Level-5 released a trailer and screenshots that show off the captivating design of this newly downloadable title.
You play as Sohta. In 1971, Sohta's small town is graced by the presence of monsters from television once a week. The objective is to collect "monster cards" and best the other children in the town at trading card battles. Only by winning can Sohta become the boss of the other kids and find out where to go next on his journey.
Considering it is one of the first titles from Level-5 since Layton Brothers Mystery Room, AOTFM looks promising. Originally released as a part of Guild 02 in Japan, it's the third title of the pack to be released behind Bugs Vs. Tanks! and The Starship Damrey. Level-5's previous collection was also brought to the US, Guild 01 and Guild 03 could possibly be in the works.
Attack Of The Friday Monsters! A Tokyo Tale is available now for 3DS on the Nintendo eShop for $7.99.
Our TakeWhile the card game is essential to progressing, a good deal of AOTFM's charm is likely to be found in interacting with the townspeople. The character designs and hand-drawn backgrounds definitely make the title worth watching. As to whether or not it is worth playing? The trailer doesn't show enough to answer that question.
Sounds interesting, but I would like to see more gameplay before I'm sold.
Yeah this seems pretty damn charming...I know il forget about it though..
It looks pretty cool! I will have to look into it more when I have the funds!
Alright, Level 5, you've had your fun, now back to Professor Layton.
Will Godzilla be in it?
Actually Level 5's newest game Yokai Watch on 3ds launched last week.topping the charts in japan
I'm buying it.
This looks like the most promising Guild02 game to me. And it's nice to see Level 5 returning to what they do best; charming RPG-style experiences. I hear the creator of this game is the guy who created those My Summer Vacation games for the PSP in Japan - obviously I never played them, but this looks great nonetheless. A shame that not all the Guild creators are known outside of Japan though. Even Aeroporter's Yoot Saito has some fans out here thanks to the weirdos who liked Seaman...
Definitely going to buy this. I wish Level 5's Youkai Watch would get localized.
What in the Earth, is that Ultraman, the white guy (02:11)!?
