    There are variations in the dialogue between English versions? I've never heard of that before.

    Yeah, for example Claire's Title Drop is "You won't forget, will you? Our shared past, and our... Lost Future." in the UK and "Do you remember, Hershel? I'll miss you, and our... Unwound Future.". Serena from Miracle Mask is also apparently Madeleine in the US, the Clampettes are the Groskettes, and apparently there aren't any bouncy sound effects in the post-credits cutscene. To name just a few.

    On a side note, did anyone notice how much the voice actors have adapted to the characters over the years? It's most noticeable with Chris Miller, who voices Layton - his accent is rather crudely British in Curious Village ("I HAVE AN IDEYUH!", anyone?), but in Miracle Mask it's so perfectly British that you won't even be able to notice that he's totally faking it and is actually American, not British.

    So is Miracle Mask a good place to hop onto the series or not?

    i noticed the accent thing but i had no idea about the difference in lines, especially if they were drastic.

    well, there are better places but sience they are all (so far) disconnected you could really start at any of them. i started with unwound future, but thats just me.

    Your experience wouldn't be severely hindered by starting with Miracle Mask, but I'd recommend playing the previous game, Spectre's Call first. For an ever fuller experience, you could play SC and then watch Eternal Diva before playing MM, since there are references to those two in MM (and it seems like they'll play a significant part in the sixth game, Azran Legacies). :P

    There's also the fact that the main villain is only introduced to players in Spectre's Call (Last Specter in the US) - in Eternal Diva and Miracle Mask, the game assumes that the player knows about the villain already.

    Am I the only one surprised by the fact that Eternal Diva is tied to the sixth game as well, and not a standalone, like I originally thought it was? It was a cool movie - with loads of plot holes, but anyway - I'm still surprised that it's linked to the sixth game, too.

    Also...

    This series and Pokemon are one of the few reasons I still own a DS and I am upgrading to the 3DS XL. I've played all the games in the series and when I went through a purge I got rid of them, now I am slowly getting them back. I just need to pick up Diabolical Box. I plan on picking up Miracle Mask around Christmas time. While some of the stories and the plot devices they use are a bit of a leap in terms of being able to actually solve the mystery. I was looking into the Zelda DS series and the Ace Attorney series because I heard it was in the same vein as Professor Layton. As an adult gamer, I can definitely see the appeal for this series and I would recommend to anyone who hasn't checked out this series to give it a shot. All the games are nothing short of addictive.

    i agree completely, i love professor layton and zelda.
    i personally just started playing ace attorney, but yes it is addictive.
    on a totally other note has anyone heard the Diabolical box puzzle/asassins creed remix? it is suprisingly good.
    and again on a totally other note, did anyone else notice that when phoenix wright points, his arm goes up and his finger angles down, but when professor layton points his arm angles down and his finger curls upward?...idk just something i noticed.

As long as the majority of the game is Laytonesque music, I'm fine. Layton and Luke look a bit better in 3D in this game than Miracle Mask, too (though not as good as Phoenix, who looks like a proper bishounen in 3D).

    Finally got round to the first game, hopefully gonna get the next 4 too. That 7th puzzle in the tower, I swear to god whoever made it is a genius. Can't figure it out for ****, and anything I do won't work. Gonna have to result to using a walkthrough in the end, but that's probably all I'm ever gonna need. Game's great, and I love the story. That ferris wheel scene though, now that's a highlight. If the series gets better with each installment I can't wait for what's ahead.

    If I remember correctly, I was stuck on that 7th puzzle for weeks. I think I somehow figured it out by guessing - there is no way my nine-year-old self could have solved that through logic. I totally loved that ferris wheel scene - it's just so suspenseful and hilarious at the same time (I never looked at a ferris wheel again without thinking that it would suddenly fall apart and run me/my character/whoever was near it over). And it definitely gets better with each installment, don't worry (maybe with the exception of Spectre's Call, though).

    Holy flip, it's been released now in Japan, right? It's already the 29th over there!

    Gah, this game looks totally awesome. If this doesn't get a European release I think I may wither and die from disappointment. And it looks like they get into quite a lot of trouble and action... poor Luke. Is it weird that now I ship Layton and Maya together after watching this?

    Also, is it true that Lord Jeeken Barnrod (aka the prosecutor guy) is voiced by Mamoru Miyano? Because if that's indeed the case the awesomeness of this game just gets doubled.

    I, honestly, don't even care about Japanese voice actors as they all sound roughly the same to me. I only do complain when English voices just don't plain work on certain characters.

    I find it quite weird that the download puzzles start to have different difficulties. A hard one just comes first before an easy one...

    Really? Maybe it's because Japanese basically sounds like Korean with the letters all jumbled up, but I can always tell Japanese voices apart. I do wonder who they'd use to voice Phoenix and Maya if they do decide to localize it, though.

    Yeah, the difficulty seems to fluctuate between the puzzles, oddly enough. Still, they're all unexpectedly entertaining. Makes every day worth waiting for.

    I have always been interested in this series, but for some reason or another I have never played any of the games. I am currently tracking a few online and found a few games in the series for sale at my local GS, which game do you guys recommend I play first? Or does it not matter which one I play first?

    it doesnt really matter but it would be best to start with "the curoius village" or "the last specter" the former is the first one they made but the latter is the first storyline wise.

    Well it sucks to be Weegee (who's awesome). I just had the urge to quote Futurama and when the professor says his famous words, it's usually bad news.

    Anyways, awesome results, still hoping for it to come overseas though.
