Professor Layton VS. Ace Attorney TGS Trailer

Wow, I can’t wait to play this game! I actually like the character models, but Phoenix’s eyes look soul-less. But I think that is a small price to pay when you consider moving 2D characters into a 3D world. I most likely won’t be importing the Japanese version since I don’t know Japanese and you need to know it to play this game. Hopefully Level-5 or Capcom officially announces it for North America!!!

Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney confirmed for NA release?

Despite co-developer Level 5’s absence from TGS, we received today a titillating bit of paper from Capcom’s booth on the show floor. It’s an English-language press release for Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney, and while details about the game are still sparse, the release contains some promising hints that all but confirm that the game will see a release outside of Japan. For one, it notes that “English names are TBD,” which obviously suggests that there are plans to localize the game for English-speaking territories.

Furthermore, the English-language press release lists the title of the game as Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney, which is the first time we’ve actually seen official documentation that refers to the title of the game using the franchises’ English-language names. MSRP is also listed as TBD.

Holy crap that would be amazing if this is true. But I guess we’ll have to wait for the official English press release to be released to the general public. I hope they announce this soon because I am really looking forward to playing this game soon as I am a huge fan of both series.

Doctor Lautrec coming in September

Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights is still set for release outside of Japan this year. Several retailers have listed the game for various dates of release in September in North America.

Check out the trailer to hear the Parisians talk with English accents. I guess it is okay since the game is set in Europe after all. Sometimes the European accents help strengthen the stories impact in the players mind. Can’t wait to check this game out in a few more months!

Professor Layton and the Last Specter trademarked in NA

Professor Layton and the Specter’s Flute was released in Japan back in 2009. The game is actually the first prequel in the new series of games, which is then followed by Mask of Miracle on the Nintendo 3DS.

Today it was revealed that Level-5 has filed a trademark for “Professor Layton and the Last Specter” in North America, indicating that they will be publishing the title instead of Nintendo. Last year, Mask of Miracle for 3DS was listed under Level-5 as the publisher, so it seems that they are ready to start publishing their own games outside of Japan.

I’m sure the game will probably be announced at E3 if not earlier; hopefully there is a Level-5 booth with these and the other Level-5 3DS games, that would be awesome!
