Spotlight on (advertising) Professor Layton and the Curious Village

Outside the North Hall of the Moscone Center (i.e. where GDC is being held) Nintendo has a rotating projector ad for Professor Layton and the Curious Village. I’m not sure how effective this eye catching display is going to be considering the daily showers in San Francisco, but the ad is on the path to the W Hotel (i.e. the place where everyone seems to congregate after GDC). Add this visual to a handful of Professor Layton ads at the bus stop and one thing is clear, Nintendo of America is actively promoting Level 5’s logic puzzle series.

    I was a little surprised to see more advertising of Prof. Layton than Lost Odyssey in my local gamestop, but I guess they want this game to do well considering it having at least 3 installments.

    The puzzles are fun and the art style is definitely unique, I myself have been anticipating this game ever since its Jpn debut and am now playing it once in a while, sometimes I need a break if I get stumped for a long time. The dialogue is quite witty as well.

    That’s cool that you were at the GDC! I was planning to go, to try to break into the game programming industry, but I totally forgot.
    I know this might be a silly question, but are you a developer as well?
    Also, did you get to try out Street Fighter 4? I was SO mad at myself for not going, because to this day, SF2 is still my favorite fighting game.
