    The doctor is not in -- suffer on your own and in silence, 3DS players. Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights has been delayed until Dec. 6. Doctor Lautrec was originally slated for a Nov. 13 release on 3DS, but Konami has sent out emails confirming the delay and Amazon has updated its page accordingly. You know how these doctors are; he's probably stuck at a conference, or performing last-minute open-heart surgery, or -- oh. He's an archaeologist? Well, then we hope he isn't doing that heart surgery thing.

    While you wait for Doctor Lautrec to launch, take your sickness away and play another handheld game involving puzzles and a super-smart dude in a trench coat and top hat. To make it challenging, we won't even tell you what this mysterious other game is called. Good luck, professor doctor.[/p]

    Wait....
    If Lautrec is from Konami, then why does he look like Layton?

    They're apparently meant to be quite different gameplay-wise.
    I'm actually looking forward to this game.

    Hmm. Lautrec is trying too hard to be Layton.

    Man, they didn't even have the decency to change the f*cking colors of his outfit. It's not a bit like Layton's, it is EXACTLY like Layton's

    edit: typo

    Seriously... I would get the game if it wasn't a complete knock-off.

    Dec 6th? I'm surprised any game would want to compete so close to Mario Kart 7's launch. I mean, it is holiday season, but Mk7 is a really, really big release for the 3DS this holiday season. I know I'd get MK7 over this any day.

    Must trying to bank on the holidays. Super Mario is a grand release for the 3ds as well, so moving it
    because of a 1st party title can't be the reason.

    That and November is filled with game releases.

    Doctor Lautrec seem like it going to be fun imho.

    Calling a game a rip because of style isn't really fair, right?

    Changing the clothes to flip colors with blue pokey dots isn't really going to make any difference with the game itself.

    Joystiq said Amazon.com, so it's the USA version.

    umm u definitely havent seen this then,
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    i think this news is special bcz its a layton clone. still it could be great if it were that great but like dungeon raiders (that got 6.7 compared to 9), i doubt this can reach THEE Layton
