Level-5 World event set for October

Livestreaming of Level-5 Vision press conference and event available to public; Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright playable at show floor.

Gamers may have been wondering about the small presence of prolific company Level-5 (Professor Layton series, Ninokuni) at this year's Tokyo Game Show. The company will instead show off the majority of its titles in a separate event called Level-5 World alongside the company's annual press conference entitled Level-5 Vision.

Gamers in Japan can check out the long-awaited Level-5 and Capcom crossover.

The press conference, which is press and invite only, will start at 11:00 JST and end at 12:30 JST on October 15. The public event will be held from October 15 to October 16 at the Tokyo Big Sight exhibition centre in Tokyo, Japan. Admission to the event is free of charge.

The company will be live streaming both the press conference and public event on a UStream channel on its website. About 10 new titles will be made playable, including Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney, Fantasy Life, Time Travelers, and Ninokuni. The event will also have a cosplay contest and a live musical performance of Level-5 game soundtracks.

I can't wait to get ni no kuni on the ps3, and Professor Layton vs. Pheonix on 3ds. So much to look forward to with Level-5

Layton VS Phoenix! I might just get a 3DS (If it's released in 3DS, which I'm almost certain of)!

Oh please show off Matsuno's new level 5 project! Remind Square-Enix that they truly lost one of their best designers.

Oh man, I wish I could get a ticket to Tokyo right now. Level-5 is my favourite developer. Can't wait for Ninokuni on the PS3.

@Generic_Dude and @DrAmazinDood, Well I can definitely kind of agree w/ you both on the less Layton thing and more variety--though I'm not going lie I was never a big Layton fan anyway. BUT being the HUGE Phoenix Wright fan that I am, I'll say let them make an exception w/ this one, lol. Hell, maybe Level-5 will do what Capcom's lazy asses never seem to want to do and actually PROMOTE (heavily) Layton vs. Phoenix properly. Please Level-5, show Capcom how to do it right....maybe it'll light match under them w/ revitalizing the series for the new handheld generation (3DS, even the PSV if need be!).

Am I delusional for still holding on to faith that they'll announce a sequel for Rogue Galaxy?

Although I'm a fan of Professor Layton, it kinda bores me to see so many titles coming out, it's like eating a good meal until you're full and then you're served more, meaning, I think level 5 should release another genre, like many said already, why not go with an RPG and announce Dark Cloud 3, that'd be like a nice desert XD

Come on, Dark Cloud 3 for PS3 or Vita or even better, both.

Show off a new Dark Cloud, for Pete's sake. Enough of this Professor Layton / White Knight nonsense already.

I am hoping for Inazuma Eleven on the DS. Ever since I saw it featured on Nintendo Life, I really wanted Level 5 to bring it over. Either way, anything Level 5 brings over is awesome, so I really cannot complain.

I'm hope for a lot of there games to be localized over here in the U.S., and by a lot I mean all!

I was going to say, what editor was up at 1 in the morning, then I saw Gamespot Asia and my concerns were answered.

Ninokuni kind of looks like wind waker a bit with the character design....It looks really cool and I seriously hope it comes to NA soon! Also Prof Layton VS Ace Attorney?! COUNT ME IN!!!
