It Looks Like Both New Professor Layton Games Will Launch In Europe First


Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy and Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney are headed to both North America and Europe, but it looks like the latter territory will receive both games sooner.


While Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy is planned for a 2014 release in North America, Europe will see the game on November 8th. Meanwhile, while Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney is simply “2014” in North America, it’s “early 2014” in Europe.


Nintendo will also release Bravely Default: Flying Fairy sooner in Europe than in North America. The game is still planned for release this year in PAL territories, while North America will see the game in 2014.
