Today, we’ve got an exciting news to share for Level-5 fans out in the west! It seems that Level-5’s The Snack World game is now being localized in English!
The news came after a 3Beep listing appeared on the official website stating the company has been “working with Level-5 to create the English language versions of the television series and video game.”
Back in 2017, The Snack World: Trejarers has first seen its debut on the 3DS. It was then followed by a Switch version, The Snack World: TreJarers Gold, which launched in April 2018. Unfortunately, both versions have not seen a release outside of Japan. In South Korea, however, the Switch version has been reportedly given a rating albeit news came almost half a year ago.
Going back to a press release many months prior, Level-5 expressed their commitment to bringing many of their popular franchises to the west including The Snack World. Now, this news of a localization could very well be hinting at an impending Switch announcement for the west soon.
