Welcome to the Professor Layton Fan Club!





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]

The Spectre's Flute/Flute of Malevolent Destiny [DS; TBA]
The Mask of Miracle [3DS; TBA]
Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright [3DS; May not be released in English]
Unnamed 6th Game [In development]



~~ 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.

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)

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;

Definitely. The second game was as tenuous as tenuousness itself. Still, burlesque house FTW.

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.

    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.

    Welcome, Eddy~♥!

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

      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! -__-

      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!"

      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.

      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.

      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
        Spoiler:
        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.

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

          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.
          something like this;

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