Woah, this came out of nowhere. I loved the DS games, anyone know how this one compares?

This one looks more like Phoenix Wright than the original Layton's.

If it is the usual Professor Layton quality, it might cost a few bucks more. 8, 10.... maybe 12 bucks for both episode unlocks, I assume. But it should be worth it, if it has the same quality.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.
