Level-5 officially announces their appearance at Anime Expo 2019

Localizations incoming?

Yesterday we shared a breakdown of the game-related panels at Anime Expo 2019, and Level-5 was included in the list. Level-5 has taken to Twitter to reconfirm that news, making sure all their followers know that it's the first time they're appearing at the event. While they might have game news to share, it's also very likely they'll have localization news on anime as well. With The Snack World and Professor Layton' series ripe for the picking, it could be a great panel for Level-5 fans. Check out the official blurb on the company's panel below.
