    Does anybody know if these DLC Puzzles are new or where they released with the Japanese version too? Not that it matters. I'm just curious.

    The Boring Room. Not much here
    Every day? If I remember correctly it used to be one puzzle a week for about 8 months for the previous games. Level-5 is going above and beyond this time. Really looking forward to it!

    Level-5 is rather slow, but at least they're localizing the entire series (as far as I'm aware, this would pretty much have the rest of the world caught up, no?) and not leaving bits and pieces in Japan.

    I think I'd be more surprised if it wasn't announced.

    Layton titles generally do good over here I thought and in general their rather quality, just not my type of game at all.

    These games are a good way to pass the time waiting at the hospital or something, I've enjoyed the previous titles.

    Not enough to actually buy them though. :lol:

    Good to see it being localized.

    Also being localised in Europe, dunno why only NA was mentioned (although it didn't have a set date, but the trailer on the NOE website had Comming Soon 2012, but it was in my language which surprised me since the nintendo Direct was just released yesterday.

    It only took a year and a half, but I'm glad we're finally getting it.

    I loved the other games. I beat the main three games, but never got around to playing the prequel. I should get on that.

    Maybe localization of these games take longer than we though and we getting most of games that they know we want. :P

    Anyway, a must buy.

    You know that's not canon. It'd be a great combo title to have over here, but it isn't necessary to understanding the Layton series that we have it.

    Ohohoho.

    Yeah, this has got me really excited. It threw me off entirely since I wasn't expecting much from Direct. Now if only they hinted at Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney...

    Cannot wait for this. There aren`t many games that get me as hooked as Layton games.... Why does it take them always so long to localize them :(

    Unrelated to the topic, but responding to your signature, technically a 3DS console plays 3DS ROMs, doesn't it ;D?

    Technically yes, but only on an official cartridge by Nintendo. I post in the 3DS forum a lot and it was starting to bug me.
