Level-5 is a relatively young major publisher in Japan. They got their start with developing notable titles such as Dark Cloud, Rogue Galaxy and Dragon Quest VIII. They however made landfall with DS, with a number of successful franchises like Inazuma Eleven and Professor Layton. They've recently been in the limelight with their latest big success Yo-kai Watch. Due to having small reach outside of Japan, they rely mostly on Nintendo to publish their games in the West as well as some partnerships like with Bandai Namco for Ni No Kuni
