First, I'd like to say overall I came out from yesterday's Nintendo Direct pretty happy. Sure, the lack of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze was weird, but for what I actually expected (which was no new games and just marketing efforts to the hardcore), those expectations were exceeded.
Notably that means that, unlike last time I discussed this where I passed off a rumour as a fact, Professor Layton Vs. Ace Attorney is actually confirmed that it'll be localized and released outside of Japan for 2014. In a presentation meant for 2013. So should Phoenix Wright's OBJECTION during the Nintendo Direct have been sustained? Probably not.
But it was found to be admissible anyway, and the words have planted themselves into the hearts and minds of the court. Erm, the public. And since it's Nintendo confirming it and not Level-5 or Capcom, it's probably more true than ever before.
(This is from the Europe Nintendo Direct but the same concept applies to North America as well.)
This will be the first game I'll ever play with Professor Layton in it, and I've heard good things about him. But besides this game, we also got a Miiverse update with a ton of Animal Crossing: New Leaf stuff. ...Just not the kind of update we were looking for (the so-called "summer update").
|Well if you know what we consider to be "REAL" updates... Are you just trolling us most of the time, Sakurai?|
So as you can tell from yesterday's log I didn't expect Luigi to be revealed in Super Smash Bros. 4 at all.
So...ready for The Wonderful 101 tomorrow?
Ludwig really wishes there is a place on Miiverse where he can share his thoughts on Ace Attorney, but alas, it's considered 3DS news only. But Friend him at NNID PrinceOfKoopas and if YOU post anything about Ace Attorney, he'll probably comment on it.
