The Next Professor Layton Is Coming to America This July

Following yesterday evening’s news that the next game in the Professor Layton series will hit Japan on July 20, publisher Level-5 has now revealed that the new game starring the professor’s daughter will be available worldwide that very day—on iOS and Android, but not Nintendo 3DS. Advertisement Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaire’s Conspiracy, formerly titled Lady Layton, is a direct follow-up to the successful logic-puzzle-solving, story-based, point-and-click adventure series that has sold 16 million copies worldwide for the Nintendo DS and 3DS systems. So far, the games have been published by Level-5 in Japan and by Nintendo in the West. While Mystery Journey will indeed come to the Nintendo 3DS in Japan on July 20, it won’t be on Nintendo’s platform in the West at launch. Level-5’s announcement says that the 3DS version will be localized at some time after launch, so if you’re really hungry for a new Layton (and why wouldn’t you be, since it’s been over three years since the last brilliant entry) and don’t speak Japanese, you may want to consider playing on your smartphone instead. The iOS and Android versions of the game will READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!

Nintendo wins second appeal in 3DS patent troll case

Back in April 2016 a decision was made in a New York Federal Court that Nintendo does not infringe upon Tomita Technologies USA patents with the Nintendo 3DS. Specifically, this case ruled that the technology included in the Nintendo 3DS is significantly different from that showcased by the plaintiff.Today, that decision was upheld in an Appeals Court and is the second such decision to be upheld with the case in appeal. Nintendo is particularly pleased with the decision, issuing this statement about the verdict:“We are very pleased with the Court’s decision. Nintendo 3DS has never used the technology in Tomita’s patent, and the Court’s ruling confirms Nintendo’s long tradition of using its own innovative technology. This case also proves once again that Nintendo will aggressively defend patent lawsuits when our products do not infringe, even when we must do so over many years, through multiple trials and in multiple countries.”This case has been ongoing for more than six years and started at the beginning of the Nintendo 3DS’ life. Now that the case is wrapped up, we’re wondering when we’ll see the first patent suits against Nintendo for a set of detachable controllers that hook up to a tablet and…

DEAL: Get Monster Hunter Generations for only $19.99

I dunno about you, but I was pretty disappointed that Nintendo’s Switch presentation didn’t feature any news from Capcom about the next Monster Hunter game. Capcom has been dedicated to Nintendo consoles with the series since the Nintendo 3DS debuted, so it would be strange for them to abandon Nintendo in favor of home consoles like the PS4.I’m sure we’ll get some juicy tid-bits about the next upcoming Monster Hunter game soon, but if you’re still eager to experience Generations on Nintendo 3DS and haven’t done so yet, you can snag a copy on Amazon for just $20 bucks. They’re out of stock right now, but if you order it you’ll get it for the cheaper price and Amazon will ship when new stock is available.I’ve done this a few times with a handful of games including the last Fire Emblem and the wait is never more than a week or so. Not bad if you’re a Monster Hunter fan and you missed out on Generations. It’s got some notable improvements over Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, too.Get Monster Hunter Generations on Amazon READ FULL STORY AT NINTENDOTODAY!
