Right. That's why he has a mustache...

Reminds me of how Ubi was going to great lengths saying how their Hollywood Crimes game is nothing like the Layton games and yet when they described how the game is it sounded just like a Prof Layton game 0.o

Ah well it'll be near impossible to put an adventure tale into a puzzle game without it looking like a Layton game. Don't know why devs need to fib about these things sometimes.

They probably coulda used a different art style, not given him the same top hat and not have exactly the same premise as layton.

Then id probably believe konami. Either way, im willing to see how it turns out. If its any good, ill get it.

Indeed. A small change could have been a bowler hat. It is still a hat but it's no top hat and it would still be in the right time period.

As a fan of the Layton series I too will be looking into any puzzle adventure games. More the merrier :)
