Though we feared Nintendo of America would cut this extra mode to save on localization costs, it turns out Professor Layton and the Last Specter will include London Life, the Brownie Brown-developed, “100-hour” RPG with a visual style reminiscent of Mother 3 (Brownie Brown also co-developed that). Joy!
What’s more, as a “North American exclusive”, this bonus RPG is available at the start, and not an unlockable after you finish the game — I’m not sure if this means European gamers will need to complete Last Specter before playing London Life, or if they won’t receive it at all.
Oh well, Europe got Xenoblade, and will soon be playing The Last Story and Pandora’s Tower, so it’s not like that region is getting screwed by Nintendo.
