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.
