Professor Layton’s Mystery Van

By Spencer . February 22, 2008 . 4:21pm

It’s a sunny day in San Francisco and Nintendo is bumping up their (liminal) Professor Layton. Other sites are showing a rough idea of what Professor Layton would look like on a Segway, we’ve got the Professor Layton Mystery Van.

By Spencer . February 22, 2008 . 8:23am

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.

By Spencer . February 19, 2008 . 8:59am

You might remember the Level 5 booth at Tokyo Game Show had a humongous line and many of the patient patrons left without a coveted Level 5 Premium Silver DS cartridge.

Professor Layton speaks English

By Spencer . January 2, 2008 . 10:48am

Many months after the quiet Professor Layton announcement we finally have screenshots of the US build to show Nintendo is on target to release it sometime in February. The first thing I noticed was the text on the top screen. Does it feel small and squished to you? This isn’t Dead Rising standard television font […]

Nintendo bumps up Professor Layton’s release?

By Spencer . December 26, 2007 . 11:03am

Even though the source of this information comes straight from Nintendo, no one seems to know when Professor Layton and the Curious Village will arrive in stores (hence the question mark in the title). Nintendo keeps shuffling the release date of Level 5’s brain bending puzzle game. It was originally pinned down for December 3rd. […]
