WHY FANTASY LIFE 2 IS ON MOBILE DEVICES INSTEAD OF NINTENDO 3DS

Apparently dedicated gaming handhelds are for children only according to Level-5 CEO who clearly doesn't realize the market for games like Angry Birds, and Flappy Bird is drooling 5-6-year olds.

Are you implying the entire mobile market is drooling 5-6 year olds? Most of the market is 18+, you know that. This was inevitable for both this and Layton 7. This is a studio who always tries everything, and in this case, Fantasy Life is a game practically nobody cared about in the core market. Why not try something new aimed at casuals then, with an install base literally a dozen times larger?

With Layton it's a bit more questionable, since the core loved Layton, but I was never planning on buying a shortish, one-and-done puzzle game like Layton at retail price. That also makes sense that the gameplay should be expanded somehow. 

Either way, let em try. If it fails they'll go back to making a shit ton of great games each year without a couple mobile games here and there.
