    Default Professor Layton Series

    With Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask coming out tomorrow (technically) in Europe and on the 28th in the US, as well as the crossover with Ace Attorney coming out on the 29th of November, I thought it would be nice to have a discussion thread.

    So yeah, this is the thread for discussing, speculating, and chatting about anything to do with the Professor Layton series.

        Spoiler:- Info on series for newcomers:


    To kick things off, here's an article on how Layton fans in Europe (take that, US!) can get a chance to win a limited-edition, Layton-themed travel tag. I don't know who many of you live in Europe, but it's still interesting.

    I love professor Layton and have played all of the released games and seen the movie
    I like the last specter the most.
    I also love the music in this series, its so catchy.

    I thought it was coming out mid-November. If that were the case, I wouldn't have blown $100 on comic books today...

    Oh well, the series is honestly nothing new but with how most video games are, it's refreshing. Love the series, the puzzles are all great challenges. Plus they nail the European-feel (until the climax).

    I only played two games of this series and I liked them. The puzzles are fun and the story is decent enough. Looking forward to the new one. Hopefully I'll remember to pick it up when I get the chance.

    These games are really fantastic. Lost Future's probably my favourite, though I do like how Curious Village spiced up the traditional murder mystery scenario.

    Miracle Mask is quite promising; I'm on the third chapter. I'm liking the transition to 3DS.

    Lost Future is my favourite, too, closely followed up by Miracle Mask. The characters didn't look too bad in 3D, actually. And apparently the events in the games + movie in the prequel trilogy all tie up... I can't wait for Azran Legacies/Legacy of the Super Civilisation/whatever the sixth game's called.

    Also, Level-5 did a better love story in one video game than Stephenie Meyer did in four books.

    Not a fan of the books either but seriously people, these jokes are old and were never funny.

    On topic, tomorrow...

    Still, it's true. =p

    Not exactly on topic, but does anyone know how to register digital downloads into Club Nintendo?

    I just realized that Miracle Mask is coming out tomorrow for the US, I had it in my mind the release date wasn't till monday so now I'm super excited for it.

    Unwound Future is easily my favorite in the series, the plot was absolutely amazing and that ending really got me. I'd say that Last Spector was my least favorite so far, I thought the plot was just kinda meh.

    I'm pretty sure there's an option for that in your settings in the eShop.

    Spectre's Call is my least favourite, too. It was a bit silly.

    How much of Miracle Mask have you played? This becomes clear somewhat early in the game. I was surprised to see a connection to the sixth game. There are also many references to Misthallery.

    I've actually finished it already, and I've started another save file, which I'm three chapters into. There's also a hilarious reference to Curious Village later on.

    Really, the only complaint that I can think of I have about this game is that... actually, I think that might count as a spoiler.

    Professor Layton is amazing!!! I'm so mad I don't have a 3DS though. I'd have to say Unwound Future is my favorite. The ending was so sad. I'm really obsessed. And my Halloween costume this year is a cool cosplay of Emmy.
    I'll put something here...eventually

    Heh, already? I finished Lost Future that quickly, and I kind of wish I hadn't, so I'm going slightly slower with this one (as I did with the previous game). It's so hard to put these games down.

    I downloaded the game from the eShop. So far, it's really nice. The 3D models are very good, and I like how the puzzles are far more interactive than before.

    So, what's up with the daily puzzle downloads? They haven't worked for the past three days.

    Got the game and...the daily puzzle isn't working. At least I'm not the only one having this problem.

    Me three.

    Are you getting the SD thing message? I unplugged the SD Card like it told me to, but nothing happened. I then decided to delete the additional data (in "Add-On Data"), but that didn't work either.

    Perhaps the Daily Puzzle isn't out yet?

    EDIT: As it turns out, the puzzles are released weekly from the day of release, 7 puzzles in a package. In other words, check next Sunday for a batch of 7 puzzles.

    This is the reason I don't know how to get it registered on Club Nintendo. =p (I linked to my account after I'd already bought it.. does that make any difference? But enough about my stupidity.)

    I haven't tried downloading the daily puzzles yet, but thanks for the heads up.

    About Miracle Mask's ending...

    Miracle Mask's 3D effect is nice on the eyes and pops out at the same time.

    I especially like how the pointer finger you get after solving a puzzle correctly pops out of the screen. I almost ducked the first time. Almost.

    Ooh, I got 60 coins out of the game's survey on Club Nintendo, 10 already included for doing an early survey.
