Level-5 opens U.S. office

Teases original games for the region

Level-5 opened their United States office this month. The official website for the studio also went live, where company CEO Akihiro Hino left a message to fans and consumers.

“I’m excited to announce that operations at LEVEL-5 International America have officially begun. LEVEL-5 IA will not only release games developed in Japan, but we are also planning to create original content for the US,” said Hino in a video message on the site.

“The Japanese and North American markets are quite different, but we hope to make innovative games that our fans in the US will enjoy. The LEVEL-5 IA staff are working hard towards this goal, so please keep an eye out for our coming projects.”

The website offers a tour of Level-5’s new office, a history of their announcements and titles, and other areas. Visit it here.
