Based in Fukuoka, Japan, Level-5 is a video game production company best known for its work on the Professor Layton, Inazuma 11, Yo-kai Watch and Ni no Kuni game series. Most of its games are cut in distinctly Japanese fashions: the ‘cute’ and big-headed soccer players of the Inazuma 11 games are drawn in a typical ‘chibi’ style, while the Professor Layton games indulge in a manga lovers’ interest in Victorian European dress styles.
In business since 1998, Level-5 greatly expanded its artistic footprint in 2008 by teaming up with renowned animation studio Ghibli ( of Spirited Away fame) for the critically acclaimed Ni no Kuni role playing games. Here, Level-5’s deep understanding of RPG development has combined with Ghibli’s well-established artistic sensibilities to create a new aesthetic of truly international appeal.
