Since Level 5 will be self-publishing Laytons for all territories now...

what are the odds of some of them making their way over to PlayStation systems? They have stated in the past that they prefer to work on Sony's systems (for whatever reason) even though their last batch of releases were for Nintendo systems.

I've also realized that Level 5 has made IPs for Sony to own (Dark Cloud and White kNight Chronicles are owned and trademarked by Sony) while they haven't made an IP for Nintendo to own. Professor Layton is owned by Level 5 and Dragon Quest is owned by Square-Enix.

This is the real thread, mods. The other one didn't store my post properly.

On what grounds? Level 5 owns the franchise, they are free to do what they want with it. If they feel they can expand their market, they will.

If they put Layton on Vita, I'd seriously consider selling my 3DS and getting one instead >_>

They've already expressed interest in bringing the games to Wii U because of the controller. It's unlikely they'd bring the games out on a Sony console, and while Vita has a touch screen, its multi-touch features lack the necessary precision needed for the majority of the games puzzles.

Heck, block-fitting puzzles where you need to rotate objects are hard enough with a stylus (in getting it to register you're trying to spin, not move) so having to do it with a finger would be even harder. A PSV or console Layton would have to have its puzzles rebuilt from the ground up.

If the series is going to show up elsewhere, my guess would be on Mobile Phones rather than on Vita.

Layton games benefit from a stylus. I'm not sure how accurate capacitive styli are, but they must be at least considering it for Vita. I think they could come up with some ingenious puzzles with the front and back touch panels. It would have to be vita exclusive though because of that. Layton is the one series that has any pull for 3DS for me.
