My copy is currently in the mail but I see almost no talk about this game. I loved the previous professor Layton games and thought they were pretty popular.

-Its on mobile as well and first so that kinda stigmatized it to some and also split the hype up in a way.
-Reviews are a bit lower than previous games though still respectable
-Level-5 didn't do a good job fueling the hype train
-It's a late lifespan arrival so plenty of people(foolishly I say) decide 3DS is suddenly unenjoyable

There really is none. Level 5 did a pretty terrible job in advertising this game.

I like Layton. Have all the games.
Have not heard good things about this one though. Will wait on a price drop or skip.
It's not about the hardware in your hands, it's the software in your hearts.

It should have been a world wide release.

I bought it months ago from Japan where it was pretty well advertised.

I'm not exactly going to buy an English 3ds just to play this.

These reasons sound accurate, especially the last one considering how a lot of people move on way too quick.

I really like these games, but at least here in Mexico, they aren't that popular because they don't have action, they require more thinking than usual and a decent English level to understand the plot. That's why they're really hard to come by around here (and they're expensive when sold online), and I imagine Harvest Moon/Story of Season ones are equally hard to find because of similar reasons.

it's crap.

- super easy puzzles that rely more on twists rather than logic (there were a bunch in previous games but not to this extent)

- vignette-like story instead of a major plot with twists and turns

- no daily themed puzzles like the 3ds games

just not worth it.

I'm curious about it, but if the story's not that great, then I'll pass.

I love Layton, played all of them, and so far I like this one too... Music is great, characters lovable, cutscenes and voice acting is well done. Too early to say more. It's a while it is available on Android and the fact that Layton is not there both reduce its attractiveness. Let's see, I hope to see the continuation of unwound future
