    Just walked into my local GAME and asked if Professor Layton was out yet and they looked at my like I was crazy.

    ''What's that? Never heard of it...'', ... ''Oh really? There was a massive advert for it in your front window about 3 weeks ago. Adventure puzzle game? Big in Japan etc?'',... ''We don't have anything to do with the adverts, Nintendo just set it up every so often'' he concludes.


    Erm, great. He then grudgingly looked through their coming soon booklet, asked his co-host (equally stupid) and then told me to check the game.co.uk website ... where it's nowhere to be found.

    Really wanted to buy it for my niece. Am I gonna have to import the US version if I want it now?

    It is a shame that people that work in Game know NOTHING about games, I've said it before and I'll say it again, most should be selling shoes! Though at my local one there is this chick that seems really clued up on stuff.

    On to your question, there is no date for Europe! It's even out in Australia now and yet nothing for us which is strange but I guess that Nintendo are getting all the translation done for countries that don't speak English.

    My advice is to just get it from somewhere like Play-asia, not only will you get it sooner than here but it will be cheaper for you. Usually take 2-3 weeks to arrive.

    Maybe because U.K and U.S speaks in English (British or no), Nintendo thought there's no reason to make the U.K. version, the text will be the same anyway (I'm right, am I?) the spoken English of British and American might be different, but how you type it will be the same, it might feels like making HongKong version after making Chinese version.

    No the reason there isn't a release right now is because the UK version is the same as the Europe one. Seeing that the UK is fairly small, some publishers have to make it more worthwhile so they put French, Spanish, Dutch and other languages so that they don't need to do separate releases and risk making too many copies in one language.
