Layton, Ace Attorney artbooks coming from Udon ⊟

Yayyy, Udon Entertainment will be publishing English versions of the Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies artbook and the Professor Layton handbook, which, by the way, had better have a puzzle on every other page or somebody done goofed.

Also the artbook for Gungnir, one of Sting’s Dept. Heaven strategy games? How intriguingly random. I am down with a reality in which a company can survive translating and printing artbooks for Gungnir in America.

Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright now $30 ⊟
Cool, a price war on this unreleased product! Both Best Buy and Amazon have dropped Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney to $29.99, in advance of its August 26 release. That’s $10 off the list price for this game that, I’ll note once again, is not out yet.
If you already ordered it from Amazon at the exorbitant, wildly inflated price of $32, the pre-order price guarantee has you covered! Image by Maki.

Two whole universes in one game for just $31.99! What savings! Both GameStop and Amazon have discounted pre-orders of the crossover courtroom game, due August 29.
This seems fairly unusual for a Nintendo-published game, but what isn’t unusual about the situation with this game… Image via Apolloterran, deal via @wario64.

Oh yeah, new Professor Layton is out today ⊟

l’ve been sleeping on this one, probably because I’ve never been into the series too much and my attention is on the upcoming Ace Attorney crossover anyway. But it’s out today in North America if you want to get up on some Azrans and their legacies.

Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy out Feb. 28 ⊟

The good thing about waiting four months after the European release is that there will be lots of good English-language FAQs. 

N-not that I need help with puzzles or anything.

Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy out in Europe ⊟

Man, this is some Layton right here. It’s somehow epic and… low-key? Nothing else hits that combination in quite the same way. Too bad this is the last mainline Layton game, although I guess we can look forward to Layton vs. Ace Attorney and whatever this is.

Perhaps that’s why I never really think about the series unless I happen to be playing one of the games or see a trailer… at which point I feel like they’re just my favorite things. Since I’m in America, I’ll see you in 2014, Professor…

What is going on with the Professor Layton series ⊟

The next Professor Layton entry will release for 3DS, iOS, and Android, and it looks nothing like previous games. At its press event this morning, Level-5 announced that Layton 7 will take the series in a new direction. According to Duckroll’s translation, the new title offers a role-playing puzzle game in a miniature 3D city where you control various characters.

[Update: Some have noted that this might not be a mainline entry, and that the 7 in its title might refer to the number of characters you can play as.]

If this turns out awful, the smartphone versions will likely catch all the flak when people look for what went wrong. I’m already disappointed this looks like a generic 3D iOS/social game rather than something like, say, London Life.
