Fantasy Life i: The Girl Who Steals Time launches worldwide in 2023

"Social slow-life RPG" Fantasy Life i: The Girl Who Steals Time has been announced for Nintendo Switch. Publisher Level-5 launched the original Fantasy Life for Nintendo 3DS way back in 2012 in Japan before shipping internationally two years later.

That game tasked players with choosing from a dozen 'life classes' and blended traditional RPG mechanics with sim game design. The sequel appears to follow that trend while expanding into fresh territory such as the ability to hop between past and present.

Here's the inaugural blurb:

A new chapter of Fantasy Life that transcends time!

Begin a fantastic life on a ruined island, and embark on a great adventure into the past! Gather friends, craft, and build your own city!

・A completely new entry in the Fantasy Life series!
・Build your own city and go on adventures on a new island!
・Explore the island with whatever Life (occupation) suits you!
・Travel between the past and present to unravel the mysteries of this ruined island!
・Popular characters from the series make a return!

Fantasy Life i: The Girl Who Steals Time will release in 2023 worldwide exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
