Professor Layton and the Curious Village. It's not exactly a title that quickens your pulse and compels you to grab the box while extracting crumpled cash from your front pocket. A down and dirty description might not change your mind either. Professor Layton is not that kind of game.
It's a Japanese import that is a little off the beaten track; a puzzle game with a story. Unfortunately, the concept and its curious title might cause the causal DS crowd to overlook it. It would be their loss. This might be a quirky Japanese import, but even after only a few minutes you can quickly see that gamers are lucky a translated version reached their shores.
