    This looks cool, the games are great, one of them games I look forward two as the puzzles are both hard and fun ( like something of Hadrians [​IMG] )

    The actual games have voice actors, no doubt they could hire them for a dub of this anime.

    Not only in Japan, it was released in theaters in Singapore too. Japanese audio with English subtitles. First time we ever have anything directly after Japan, before America or Europe! [​IMG]

    It seemed horribly unpopular though, even though there were ads and advertisements for the movie everyone you look. The people in the theater with me had no idea what we were talking about when we were screaming "HOMG CLAUDIA" or "OMG IT'S BELUGA" etc etc.

    It was an extremely awesome movie, completely on par with the games. And Layton actually does his job for awhile in this one! (Dusting some rocks)

    Oh but the 4 puzzles were kinda meh though. :/

    And the whole supernatural element of it was kinda... well either you like it or you don't. You'll know when you see the movie. I wish Layton stayed more steam punk as it's supposed to be though.

    Well goodie gumdrop. Hopefully this will be a sign that the Layton sequels will see localization too.
    I don't really care if this is subtitled, though I prefer dubbed since I think the Layton English VAs are actually talented.

    I'm sure you guys'll be getting the English dubbed version. Not that it's a bad thing, the VA's aren't that bad. [​IMG]

    Also, I could swear I read somewhere that Nintendo was rushing to get games 3 and 4 in English before getting the movie out so that it fits in with the time line... I bet people on the English-speaking side of the world are missing out on cameos in the movie from Last Time Travel and Flute of Malevolent Destiny... D:
