[EN]: Japanese game developer and publisher Level-5 (株式会社レベルファイブ), known for its work on games such as Professor Layton, Ni no Kuni, Yo-kai Watch and Inazuma Eleven, has acquired Comcept (株式会社), company founded in 2010 by former Capcom producer and Mega-Man co-creator Keiji Inafune (稲船 敬二), and has been renamed Level-5 Comcept.

A report on the most recent issue of Weekly Famitsu, translated by Gematsu, says “Level-5 Comcept is a company that combines the philosophies of both companies.” However, according to Inafune, “Although there are plans to close Comcept as it currently stands in the future, I will take responsibility for the titles I’m working on until the end.”

Though there are 15 employees at Level-5 Comcept, most of them who are from the original Comcept team, Level-5 wants “to gradually recruit staff from here on.”

The first official game by the new Level-5 Comcept team will be the Android/iOS title Dragon Colonies, due for release sometime next year in Japan.

[ES]: El desarrollador y editor japonés de videojuegos Level-5, conocido por su trabajo en juegos como el Profesor Layton, Ni no Kuni, Yo-kai Watch e Inazuma Eleven, ha adquirido Comcept (株式会社), empresa fundada en 2010 por el ex-productor de Capcom y el co-creador de Mega-Man Keiji Inafune (稲船 敬二), y ha sido renombrado Level-5 Comcept.

Un informe en el último número de Weekly Famitsu, traducido por Gematsu, dice que “Level-5 Comcept es una compañía que combina las filosofías de ambas compañías”. Sin embargo, según Inafune, “aunque hay planes para cerrar Comcept tal como está actualmente para el futuro, voy a tomar la responsabilidad de los títulos en los que estoy trabajando hasta el final”.

Aunque hay 15 empleados en Level-5 Comcept, la mayoría de ellos que son del equipo original de Comcept, Level-5 quiere “reclutar gradualmente a personal de aquí en adelante”.

El primer juego oficial del nuevo equipo Level-5 Comcept será el título Dragon Colonies para Android e iOS, que debiera lanzarse el próximo año en Japón.
