Welcome to the Professor Layton Fan Club!

http://gamernode.com/upload/manager///News%20Images/Nintendo/layton1279116654.jpg



Professor Layton is the series of hugely popular puzzle games released on the DS/3DS. There are books and a movie, but this fan club will focus on the games.

~ ~ LIST OF VIDEO GAME RELEASES: ~ ~
(Releases are all western dates. Released games are bolded)

The Curious Village [DS; 2008]
The Diabolical Box/Pandora's Box [DS; 2009]
The Unwound Future/Lost Future [DS; 2010]

~~ RULES ~~


I'm not a big fan of rules, so I'll keep them brief:

1) Please hide all spoilers. Not everyone has played all of the games.

2) Images are welcome, but of course, nothing explicit. Explicit images can be linked, but not posted.

3) Going off topic is fine. This is a place to not only discuss Professor Layton, but for fans to also meet and such.

4) Not all topics have to be answered. In other words, if you're new, and can't be bothered answering the questions in the topics, that's okay- you don't have to. You can pick and choose if you like.

I love Professor Layton. n_n I'm so glad it's a successful series here in the West (apparently, though I'm the only person I really know IRL who plays it) because it means the other games will be localized.


Which was the first game you played?
I got into the series shortly after the first game was released so I started with that and have played them in order. :)

Which game is your favourite?
Favourite plot was the first one but I think the third one has had my favourite puzzles so far.

Nutella
April 12th, 2011, 04:39 AM
Aww~<3, Cherrim... Anyway, onto the topic...

It's very successful in Australia as well. So far we've seen the first three, the Spectre's Flute will almost definitely be released Down Under. =) I also started off with the Curious Village, and the only thing I could complain about was how short it was. I WANTED MOAR, haha.

I thought the plot of the second game wasn't nearly as good as the first. The third game was spectacular, and I'll always fondly remember Legal Luke. I just loved that car puzzle! X)

Cherrim
April 12th, 2011, 09:54 AM
Third game had such a strange plot but at least it wasn't... AS bad (believability-wise) as the second game's. I think. xD;

Nutella
April 12th, 2011, 07:57 PM
Definitely. The second game was as tenuous as tenuousness itself. Still, burlesque house FTW.

Cherrim
April 13th, 2011, 07:00 PM
Haha, I'd forgotten about that! I though it was kind of a risque thing to put in a children's game. :P Not that they'd understand, I suppose. Or that the games are really played by any kids I know.

Professor Layton seems to appeal to older kids. Well, kids older than I thought. I don't know of a fan under 13.

Please count me in! XD I'm a noob to the game and I've just played the beginning of the Curious Village... http://www.pokecommunity.com/images/templates/smilies/cerulean/9.%20blush.gif But I really like the game and movie :P

My word, YOUR SIG IS TOO COOL! Anyway, welcome, Pikachewy! Dude, you're so in. Let me know how you go~ Also, did you like the movie? I saw it in Japanese, and seriously, the English voices are better. CRM 4eva~♥ They made an English version of the movie in London, apparently. Hopefully we get the books as well. Yeah.

SUBTITLES: Epic Win.

Keeping to mah promise, plus Rayton, Ruke and the puzzles are long-lasting fun so please count me in or 'I'll smash you right out of the sky!'.

Which was the first game you played?
Curious Village. I still remember the first viewing of the beautifully animated movies.

Which game is your favourite?
Unwound future. The plot went here and there near the end, but I loved almost everything else about it.

Cherrim
April 16th, 2011, 04:43 PM
Ohh I saw the movie. :D I loved it and if they release an English version on DVD, I'll definitely buy it.

Nutella

Yes, I'll definitely watch/buy the English version. Layton's voice is MUCH better in English.

New topic: Favourite puzzle and/or puzzle type(s)?

My favourite type of puzzle is one of those trick questions. Such as "what is the last letter of the Alphabet?" Lol, ;)

LOL, MAH FELLOW AUSTRALIAN! I like swapping stuff, like those foodstuff can ones, jugs, crossing the river, etc.. I also enjoy dividing things, too. Damn people and their inheritance disputes! -__-

Edsbob
April 17th, 2011, 10:02 AM
I always liked the pancakes, the jugs, the division ones. I now like the slider puzzles as well.

"Thanks to the Professor Layton series, now I can solve that toucan slider puzzle on the Windows Vista Widget in two minutes. TAKE THAT, TOUCAN!

With Professor Layton, you can beat that toucan!"

Nutella
April 17th, 2011, 05:56 PM
LOL, nice work, Eddy. ♥ I still can't do slider puzzles well...

Cherrim
April 17th, 2011, 10:13 PM
Hmm. I think my favourite puzzle types are the math ones. 8D; Otherwise, I actually kind of like the slider ones so long as I don't have to do it in a certain number of turns.

I haaaated the slider puzzles the first time I had to do them but Layton got me into them. xD I have a game on my phone that's entirely sliding puzzles and it's probably my favourite thing to do when I'm sitting on the bus or in a waiting room.

Probably the banana slip mazes.

The ones where you have to do it an [x] amount of times made me feel like I was roasting alive from the inside. Haha, my old Samsung had an ap where you can make slider puzzles out of your existing images. It sadly, did not improve my skills. It did however, give me an edge on the puzzle in Zelda's Wind Waker.

Probably the banana slip mazes

How could I forget that?! They were SO WIN! It also reminds me of how much I loved that mini-game in the Professor's trunk where you had to plan out a route for the Laytonmobile.

Slider puzzles...

...Love-hate relationship...

That reminds me that I still need to finish all the slider puzzles in the third game... That gate one, the second time around, hoo boy.

Which was the first game you played?
I watched Curious Village being played and I helped in it, so I can't really consider that for credit. So...Diabolical Box.

Which game is your favourite?
Unwound Future. I shed man tears for that.

What is your favourite puzzle and/or puzzle type(s)?
The ice slipping one was really enjoyable (In Diabolical Box, the banana peel slipping over in Unwound Future is pretty much the same), and my favorite puzzle types are usually the trick question ones.

v Spoiler about content of Diabolical Box Reopened v
So how about that slider puzzle, yeah? :v And I thought the other one was pretty horrendous. ;_;

YES.

The ice slipping ones make the Pokemon Ice Cave a leisurely slide. They're fun too.

I still remember the puzzle in the first game where you had to stake the monster's eye...

On a seperate note, I always jump when I hear the "BOOOOWww..." noise when you get the answer incorrect.

My first game was Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box.

Which game is your favourite?

So far, Unwound Future. The storyline may be a little confusing, but I love it. But when VS Ace Attorney comes out that will be my game. I even made a fanfic to celebrate my fav video characters coming together xD .

What is your favourite puzzle and/or puzzle type(s)?

My favourite puzzles are usually the ones that are trick questions and the like.

Type in "will professor layton vs ace attorney come out in english" on google and click the 2nd option (I haven't made 15 posts yet so no hyperlinks -_-)
TAT I REALLY don't want to believe this... I dunno if it's true or not...

EDIT: "Capcom has confirmed that its exciting Pheonix Wright and Professor Layton crossover title for the Nintendo 3DS is currently exclusively a Japanese release.

The game is a collaborative effort between Capcom and Level-5 and has been written by Ace Attorney creator Shu Takumi.

The publisher has encouraged international gamers to share their excitement and support for the game in the comments section of the Capcom-Unity blog. With enough comments the game may receive an international release, it says."

As for PL vs. AA, I don't mind if it's in Japanese as long as I can get my hands on it and play it on my DS. I'm looking forward to it. Though I'm not sure whether it will be as good as the trailers made it look...

Do any of you use the blogspot walkthrough when playing Professor Layton?

I try my best not to use walkthroughs. About 95% of the time, I don't use one to find answers, but I do so to find Hint Coins and hidden puzzles. Even though the Puzzle Shack helps you out.

One problem though... I don't think that PL vs AA will come out in english... :<

I heard a similar rumour like that... as with all rumours, if only I could remember the source! I hope this won't be the case, given the popularity of the two games.

Also, welcome to new members! I may be tugging on strings, but here's another topic that could keep us posting a couple of more times:

Favourite character?

~Ryukaa
April 23rd, 2011, 01:53 AM
Favourite character?
Because I'm unsure if this is spoiler or not, I'll put it in a tag.
Claire. She was very likable in a few moments you saw her in the game. Cheerful, bright, friendly. Perfect for Layton. I felt really bad for her by the end of the game. She got forced into an experiment, and because of that, she was doomed to disappear. Especially when things were going so well with her and Layton. God-damnit, Bill. He killed Clive's parents as well. :<

Starrodkirby86
April 23rd, 2011, 08:35 PM
I don't really have a favorite character in particular, but I always appreciated Layton the most. With the ending on Unwound Future, man, my respect our good ol' archeologist.

How about our mysterious friend, Stachenscarfen? :D

http://images.wikia.com/layton/images/e/ef/Stachenscarfen.png

EDIT:

Yeah, I think the Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney game will have low chances of reaching international shores. They already made Ace Attorney Investigations 2 Japan only. It's probably due to the lackluster sales that Capcom got for the Phoenix Wright series in general (Its sales only got a cult fanbase rather than a big hotcake seller like Okamiden or something).

Luckily, my Japanese is quite good. There may be some things I won't get, but I should be okay.
How did you get to know about Professor Layton?

My sister bought it one day, and she recommended that I play it. I fell in love! I was hooked! XD

That's a tough one. I'd love to say Lady Dahlia, because she's beautiful, but I'll probably go with Starchen- just because I'm a bit of joker and don't take many things seriously.

How did you get to know about Professor Layton?
I just played my cousin's copy of it once. But since there was limited time, I didn't take the game seriously and found it boring. Some time after, I tried getting it myself and playing it. It was magnificent. xD;

September feels like it's going to be a long time from now. xD;
Anyway, I hope that the September release date isn't just a rumour. I would be pretty disappointed if it was. Then again, if it wasn't, and E3 announced it to come out even earlier than September, that'd be even better. xDD;;
I need to play Diabolical Box again. Since it's the middle cihld of Season 1, I didn't really give it as much attention as it deserved. .-.;

Wellll. From the clues being given throughout the Season 1 games, I'm just going to guess that Luke's dad had to go off on some long business trip, and had to have someone take care of Luke. So he just chose Professor Layton, for certain reasons. xD;

...but I'm probably most hyped about that music. I looove the BGM in Layton games.

What was your first Professor Layton game?
The very first Layton game I played didn't even feature Hershel Layton, it's on the iPhone called, "Layton Brothers: Mystery Room" A bit of a darker spin, and wildly different gameplay, but fun nonetheless

I know I'm late jumping on this bandwagon (5 years for Layton, and two for this forum). But I just ordered the first trilogy on Amazon for like 30 bucks, and I can't wait to play them!

As for finding Layton, I was playing Pheonix Wright on my iPhone and I loved it. I stumbled upon V.S. Professor Layton and began searching for the other series. And now I'm here. The 3D 'Arzan Legacy' game is being localized right now, and the V.S. Pheonix Wright game most likely will. Capcom has released an english trailer. Apparently it's 75% Professor-Layton-puzzles and 25% Pheonix-Wright-Cases.

Hopefully this forum gets rekindled, but for now, this is PottyProf signing off!
