I saw that, too. I was surprised as Best Buy usually doesn't overcharge for games like that. Usually it's Gamestop and their "Nintendo tax."


Even the normal 'Nintendo tax' is like $5, though, which is why this caught me totally off guard. I can only figure that it's a screw-up and they categorized it with 3DS games. Or, the conspiracy theory version, which is that they figured if people pay $40 for a 3DS game, they'll pay $40 for this.

The only consolation is that I knew enough to catch it. I'd imagine there will be people that don't even bat an eye.

Very annoyed with Amazon right now, I preordered about a month ago and now got an email saying I won't get it until October 31St at the earliest. This series isn't -that- popular.

I got the game at Toys 'R Us as part of their B2G1 sale. It was $29.99.

The spine sure does contrast with the other Layton games. It doesn't even have the logo!

I noticed that too. Kinda disappointing.

Its not the popularity, I think it's just not very many copies are available. All the stores I've been to ad few copies, some were already sold out.

It has more content and puzzles.

I'd rate them like this from what I've played thus far:

Unwound Future = Last Specter > Curious Village > Diabolical Box

I agree that Diabolical Box is the "worst", but what made Unwound Future better for you than Curious Village? I really liked Curious Village better because of the completely free roaming and no forced backtracking, like in Unwound Future. Plus, I thought the puzzles were more varied in the first also (although that could be just because of familiarity now, since I never tallied up the number of each type... but Unwound did seem a tad more repetitive).

This morning while doing ad set at Best Buy I noticed they put the price down to $29.99. Also they corrected it on .com to the same price, and took down the crazy "Pre-order and pick up on the 17th!" that they had going on up until yesterday. So if you still need a copy, it should be corrected nationwide now.

I picked it up day 1, but still haven't had a chance to play. Still finishing up Curious Village (I played them out of order).

London Life seems...odd so far. Granted I haven't put much time into it, but it seems like something someone would put together in flash. I'm going to finish Unwound Future first...but that may take me a bit since I've only done 30 puzzles or so thus far.
