Time Travelers (タイムトラベラーズ Taimu Toraberāzu?) is a video game "without a genre" developed by Level-5 for the Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation Vita, and PlayStation Portable. Besides involving "time travel", the game is said to contain a "massive, in-game world". Initially announced for Nintendo 3DS, Level-5 announced in October 2011 that the game would also be coming to the PlayStation Portable and PlayStation Vita. A demo of the game was included with the release of Level-5's Nintendo 3DS title, Guild01. The game's mystery-themed narrative has been penned by Jirou Ishii, who previously directed Chunsoft's acclaimed 2008 visual novel 428: Fūsa Sareta Shibuya de, as well as the 1987 cyberpunk adventure game Imitation City.
One particular day in 2013, a mysterious hole, called "Lost Hole", emerged from the sky, and along with it, came an enormous explosion that devastated the central Tokyo area and claimed the lives of many.
Eighteen years later on April 28, 2031, in a newly rebuilt metropolis, a new event is about to occur, one that could change the fate of the world forever.
The game takes place in a rebuilt central Tokyo. Technology has greatly advanced since the event that took place eighteen years ago, evident by the holographic signs that filled the streets. A building called "Space Elevator" can be seen rising from Tokyo Bay, with the height of two thousands meters above the city. This particular building is what powers the city, although exactly how it is able to generate energy is a mystery.
Time Travelers's soundtrack is composed by Hideki Sakamoto (Yakuza, Toukiden, 428); a particular mention must be made for the ending theme "The Final Time Traveler", performed by Sarah Alainn, also responsible for Xenoblade Chronicle's ending theme "Beyond the Sky".
