Antique Carnevale Amelia Character Trailer

Antique Carnevale Details

Square Enix has released another character trailer for Antique Carnevale. This is the Antique Carnevale Amelia character trailer. Not a lot is known about the game so far, not even what systems it will be released on. More information is expected to be shared on July 18th. Gematsu has provided this translation of the game’s prologue.

“Have you thought about the differences between “things” and “living things”?

Or the differences between “dolls” and “people”?

If you ask, people will easily answer as such: dolls are “not able to move on their own,” right?

However, that is an invitation to the labyrinth.

Is a person unable to move by their own will not a “doll”?

Is a doll able to move by its own will not a “person”?

The explorers who wander around in search of an exit will find themselves deeply lost…

And then, one boy visits that labyrinth by himself…

He will listen. To the cries left behind by the “people” that have decayed in the labyrinth.

He will understand. The desires of the “dolls” captured in the labyrinth.

To that young man who stands in the space between people and dolls… I pray.

May the blessings of the people of origin be with him.”

Here’s the Amelia trailer.

And here are the trailers for the other characters revealed so far.

Nintendo’s Quality Of Life Project Still Under Development

Nintendo's Quality of Life Project

Nintendo’s Quality of Life project is still under development according to their latest Annual Report. We first learned details about the Quality of Life (QOL) project back in 2014, but nothing ever came of it. But it looks like Nintendo hasn’t given up on the idea just yet. Here’s a quote from the Annual Report where they mention the QOL project.

“Moreover, we are working on the development of a new product that improves people’s QOL (Quality of Life) in enjoyable ways. Our aim is to enable consumers to make daily efforts to improve their QOL in a fun manner by making sleep and fatigue status visible and offering various services based on this information.”

Will Nintendo’s Quality of Life project ever see the light of day? That remains to be seen. For now all we can do is speculate and wonder.
