yes, i am ready for 3D matchsticks

So in his younger days Layton (Who is really Patrick) accidentally killed a hipster?

I'm somewhat disappointed by the music in this trailer. I alway enjoyed the slow, whimsical pace that the Layton games bring to the puzzle solving genre. This looks much more action packed and fast paced.

Layton as a sword fighter? I don't know if I buy it....

Isn't that how The Diabolical Box ended?

@DSale:

But we have seen Layton fight before. Hell, he's damn good at it too.

Anyways, I am full hype since my 3DS will finally be played.

He did some fencing in the movie too if I recall.

Patrick grows up to be Layton?

I can't freaking WAIT. I love Layton. Favorite Nintendo game ever!

Funny that matchstick puzzles were only really prominent in the first Professor Layton game released in the States.  Yet you guys always bring it up.

Did you miss Unwound Future where you build a machine gun out of a slot machine and waste fools? (kinda)

From the second game on, Layton games always had their fair share of action scenes. This trailer most likely just compiles snippets of all the action scenes into two minutes. I still expect the slow, leisurely pace to exist.

Is Randal really Phil Fish?

Posted by biggiedubs

I really hope that Randall dude didn't grow up into Descole, because that would make his character even more lame than he already is. Come on guys, you can't give your two main antagonists in your series THE EXACT SAME BACKSTORY.

Did anyone here even remember the villain from The Last Spectre's name at all? Does anyone remember anything from that game?

I'll be picking this up though, in the hope that they do some cool 3D stuff, and to remind that I still like Professor Layton and still really really really want Professor Layton v Phoenix Wright.

There was that guy and then there was ANOTHER GUY. He's the dude from the miracle mask trailer. He turned up right at the very end, explained that he was behind everything, attacked you with a huge robot and then peaced out.

Well done for remembering Jakes though. I totally forgot about that guy.

Next Professor Layton: The Last Spectre question:

Q: What was the name of that stupid dinosaur thing?

young Layton and his friend look like Patrick and Phil Fish

Descole. 
 
Loosha (?). 
 
Boom.

Well done, sir. Take your place on the throne as 'Professor Layton: The Last Spectre Remembering Person'.

If I could remember the name of that mouse that Luke talked to a couple of times throughout the game, I would ask you about it. But I can't so, that would be cheating. I also cannot remember the main girl's name either. Or her brother's.

1: Oh man... Squeaks, or something? A pluralized verb that sounds cute? 
 
2: Arianna. 
 
3: Tony.

I just cheated and looked on Wikipedia, and I can tell you......It's not Squeaks. And it isn't a verb either. Come on dude, if you really want the 'Ultimate Professor Layton: The Last Spectre Remembering Person' crown, then you've got to get this one.

Hell, the first game had a freaking killer Ferris wheel and an escape off a tower with a makeshift glider. Action has always been in the blood.

Patrick is a young layton, eh?

That explains this stylish hat.

Professor Layton has my favorite music in games.

Posted by crusader8463

I have always loved the animation in the cartoons for those games, but my hatred of puzzle games always kept me from trying these.

@algertman: Hatless Layton looks like a merger of Patrick and Benedict Cumberbatch's Sherlock

Posted by Groundings

This may be a good reason to buy a 3ds in Aus. This reminds me; where is the Layton/Ace Attorney crossover?

As a matchmove artist, this game poses no challenge to me.
