Professor Layton Puzzle Break Chocolate

The brilliant archaeologist/puzzologist gets his own branded chocolate from Glico, to celebrate the impending release of the latest (and possibly last!) Layton game in Japan. I imagine Layton sitting down between puzzles, having a bit of chocolate with his cup of tea. It sounds quite nice.

The candy comes in Gateau Chocolat and Tea Chiffon Cake flavors, and includes a scratch-off card that ties into a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Legacy of Super Civilization A.

Thanks for the dating advice, Professor Layton
I wish there really was a Professor Layton-penned column that I could send my concerns to. There are plenty of fake Layton Twitter accounts, I’m sure, but it’s not the same.

Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright concept art, showing the characters in the styles of each others’ games. And Layton as a robot for some reason. These images were released as gallery DLC for the 3DS game.

I like how Layton gets super manly and/or robotic, and Luke just looks the same. Lukes gonna luke.

Puzzles and courtroom scenes come together in this new Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney trailer — check out the Indiana Jones-esque scene bit at 00:53!

There’s still no word of a U.S. release, but this ships in Japan next week. There are also two new commercials, if this clip isn’t enough Layton/Wright for you.

There is some craziness going on in Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney, or at least in this art for the 3DS game.
Check out Hershel Bad Motherfucker Layton facing the beast like a hero of archaeology. Everyone is running for their lives, but he’s all: “I see a hidden puzzle!”
Yeah, professor. The puzzle is “There are a bunch of Dementor-type bird ghosts up in this piece. See if you can figure out how to get the fuck out of here.”

Pink 3DS XL bundle. I’ve never heard of Gilt before, but it’s got the early exclusive on the pink and white 3DS XL for North America, bundling it with Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask or Style Savvy: Trendsetters for $219.99. That’s a pretty dang good price!
The system won’t ship until after November 25, which makes me think this is going to be a Black Friday deal that Gilt is revealing first.

I’ve been cranking to finish Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask all week, finally wrapping it up last night at about 12:30 am. Then I got the Joystiq review done in the morning, so it could be edited and posted in the early afternoon.

All this is my roundabout way of saying: it would be cool if someone read this.

I really like Professor Layton games! Even when I’m marathoning them for review, they’re so chill. Now I just sit back and wait for people to finish the game so we can [REDACTED EMOTIONAL RESPONSE] about the ending together.

Professor Layton hits the books to solve a mystery, as Luke delivers a cup of tea. I like how Layton just has his head cocked in his comically oversized hat, wondering, “Damn, how did all these butterflies get up in this piece?”
Don’t forget that Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask releases today! Love the art on the instruction booklet.

Dianna Agron returns for another 3DS commercial to hawk Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, and to remind us she’s not a gamer — she just crush a lot. Once again, Tumblr is ablaze with GIFs of Ms. Quinn Fabray’s latest work.

I know plenty of dudes are salty over this "not a gamer" campaign Nintendo’s running, but I ain’t even mad about it. It reminds me too much of this freestyle battle.

Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle is more important than your acting career, even if you’re Penelope Cruz.

You’ll be able to give total control of your life over to PUZZLES on October 28. Better get all your filming out of the way now! PUZZZZZZLESSSSSS.
