Prof. Layton series

#1mumpsy21Posted 4/6/2013 4:37:21 AM
Just a quick question. Am I supposed to play anything before the 3DS game? I heard somewhere there's just one game I need to play before I play Majora's Mask, but I wanna make sure first.

the game you want to play is The Last Specter/Spectre's Call its one of those two names. as for what game to recommend I don't know your preference so I'll just say ocarina of time because you called the prof. Layton and the miracle mask majora's mask.

First of All, I think you mean Miracle Mask, not Majoria's Mask. (That is Zelda) If you are going to play Professor Layton, start with the Curious Village. All of the games are really fun.

There are five Laytons out.

The Curious Village
The Diabolical Box/Pandora's Box
The Unwound Future/Lost Future
The Last Specter/Spectre's Call
Miracle Mask

That's their order of release. But their chronological order is actually:

The Last Specter/Spectre's Call
Miracle Mask
-A third game still to come out here-
The Curious Village
The Diabolical Box/Pandora's Box
The Unwound Future/Lost Future

So you while you technically aren't losing any story by starting with the Last Specter, it's recommended that you start with the curious village.

Think of it as watching Star Wars Episode I, II and III without watching IV, V and VI first.

But why would you ever watch I, II, and III to begin with?

Yes, tc. Start with Curious Village though.

You should also watch the movie Eternal Diva. It happens between Last Specter and Miracle Mask.

it's 2 trilogies; the second (the prequel) one isn't finished yet. So if you begin with the latest games you'll be stuck without the third game, and you'll have to jump to the first trilogy, and when the third game of the second trilogy comes out you'll probably have forgotten the first 2 games you played. So I suggest playing them the way they came out.

...Is my post confusing? I feel like it is.

I would recommend playing them in order, starting with Curious Village, although the tech upgrades in Miracle Mask make it really hard to do so...

Having said that first games are all pretty affordable. So you don't be into it for too much $ if you get the whole series.

I still have Miracle Mask to beat. Here's hoping they keep with the pattern and release the sixth game this fall ;)

^ This (except I have beaten Miracle Mask). I played them in order of release; and if you wish to play the entire series, I recommend you do so as well.
