Hi all,

 

I didn't see this anywhere posted but the Professory Layton and the Azran Legacy for the Nintendo 3DS is on sale at Best Buy for $24.99.  If you have a GCU, then it's only $19.99.  Looked like a good deal to me so I picked it up.

 

Hope this helps any of you that are interested in this game.

Thanks - ordered one. I thought I had played them all but it looks like I completely missed this one somehow. Though I may find out once I get it that I already have it somewhere ;).

I think a lot of people skipped this one.  It came out not that long after Miracle Mask and somehow flew under the radar.  Probably a rush job.

 

Trades in to amazon/walmart for $16.xx so worth a shot.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Rush job :shame:  it originally came out two years after Miracle Mask...Curious Village and Diabolical Box came out same year, Unwound Future came out the following year, and Last Specter the year after that...

 

It's a fun game just like all the other ones, I don't think this is much of a spoiler but Azran Legacy has tons of different locations to explore also.

Tell me about it, haha. I own EVERY single Layton game except for Layton vs Phoenix Wright and I haven't played one for more than five minutes.

Awesome, I've been waiting for this one to drop at Best Buy - just ordered a copy (& pre-ordered Theatrhythm: Curtain Call).

Thanks for the heads up, OP! :D

Hahah I thought about looking up release dates before posting figuring someone else would call me out on it if I didn't. Shit maybe I'm just getting old and the years are rushing by.

I just bought Layton/Phoenix Wright, should this be a good game to get a feel of what I'm doing, never had an interest in Layton.

Any idea if this is just a unlisted deal for the 4 day labor day sale or it is part of the weekly sale.  I checked the ad and labor day sale 3ds game list, didn't see the game in there.

I just went and looked and didn't see it ... actually, I haven't seen it in stock at Amazon for about a month (not even by now and ship later -- just not carried anymore). That's why I picked it up at WalMart a few weeks ago when I saw it was $30.

There were only 6 copies left at the time of the post, IIRC. :cry:

Not unless they sell it for $19.99. Best Buy it is then(just checked and its only third party sellers selling high on Amazon that I saw)

Played almost all of them (in the middle of the 5th). I'm sure this one rocks like the other PL games. :D

Yeah, I have yet to play a single Phoenix Wright game, despite getting them all pretty much when they came out. But I believe that besides this one, I've played all the Layton games. I think I passed on this one at launch because I had been burned on the last couple getting cheap not too long after I bought them. Looks like it paid off.

And I had just traded some games in to Best Buy yesterday, so I used that credit to get it.

stock is definitely weird on this one, at one best buy I visited they had 0 of this, at another they had 20+

 

bought two, one for me and traded one to gamestop for $22.40 after bonuses ($14 base)

Heh, I played through the first three. First one I got done quick, second one took a bit longer, and third one even longer. By two hours in the fourth I just kinda burned out. Obviously they came out in much larger intervals but still, they do get kinda meh after a while. I'm not even putting #6 on my wishlist until I'm done with #4, and who knows when that will be.

Probably best to wait a bit for this to drop to $10 at Best Buy just like Miracle Mask did. Shouldn't be much longer now if it drops as fast as MM did.

MM took two years to drop to $10...

But it did drop to $15 within a few months of release. They appear to have learned their lesson and produced fewer units of Azran.

I wish I would've known that. I figured that since it showed up Sunday it would be all week. I saw this post Sunday night while on my tablet in bed and was too tired to check my collection to see if I owned it already. I went to buy it last night and was bummed to see it was back to full price. I think it's the only Layton game I don't own too.


Let's go O's!

Ha! Just finished it today. Weakest Prof Layton game. Good deal though!

Rush job :shame:  it originally came out two years after Miracle Mask...Curious Village and Diabolical Box came out same year, Unwound Future came out the following year, and Last Specter the year after that...

 

It's a fun game just like all the other ones, I don't think this is much of a spoiler but Azran Legacy has tons of different locations to explore also.

In a sense it's rather weaker since some of the puzzles were nearly exact copies of ones from Miracle Mask. The beginning had a puzzle with sliding penguins on ice I think and one had pirate/sailor figure hopping. Plus the 3DS games have no evil math problems...OK I hated those too but it does lower the difficulty nevertheless. 

 

It's also why I look forward to the trials in Layton v. Wright. Fortunately, while some of the puzzle concepts are the same, they've redressed them and made them fit in the context of Labrynthia at least. Also I wish there was more voice work for both AL and LvW.

 

Well...I'm now officially waiting for The Layton Original Trilogy Plus Edition or something...

 

I will say this: If you've played ANY of the Layton games, yes it's still worth every one of the $40 you'll spend on it. I know, it's against our CAG-ness...but it is.

Sorry I missed this one, $25 would have been my price for Azran.  But maybe just as well.  I played the 4 on original DS, haven't touched Miracle Mask yet, and just started Layton vs Wright this weekend.  Maybe by the time I finish those, Azran will be under $20.

The Layton sections in L vs. PW play exactly like they do in the Layton games down to the navigation, sound effects and even menu. Although you can probably play Azran Legacy and be fine it's the third part of the prequel trilogy so you'd miss out on something. I'd reccomend starting from the first game, but if you don't want to go back and play DS games go with Miracle Mask and get Azran Legacy if you want more.
