    I can't tell if it extend battery life, if it did it would be something to pick up.

    Hell yeah! But you can't be 100% sure because it might just be an old iteration.

    Who knows. We might have a leaked confirmation on the Layton 3DS game(s).

    it seems very nice to me (the peripheral in the pic which i believe is a cradle correct?)
    its makes it feel like a controller... but do peripherals get announced before the console gets released?

    Of course they do. Haven't you heard that MadCatz is the official peripheral developer for the 3DS? It was announced like a month ago.

    Layton 5 would definitely come to America/Europe, it's quite popular. Odds are they'll get 4 out on the DS this year (it'll probably be the last noteworthy DS game after the 3DS launch) and get Layton 5 out in 2012. Just my guesses.

    The hand grip thing seems pretty appealing, I still need to get one for my PSP. Looks like it'd stop my hands from fucking breaking every time I use it. It's not really a problem with the 3DS, I just have big hands that cramp easily. Had the same problems on my DS and PSP.

    English Layton 5 screens were on Nintendo's press kit back when the 3DS was unvelied at E3.
    And that picture uses one of them. At that time, the screens they showed had 2D portraits during conversations, such as the one shown there, the final game has 3D models.
    So... in reality there's no leaked announcement of it or anything.
    EDIT: Here's the screenshot, from the press kit like I said.
