Australian Layton Release to Include London Life

Australians won't have to import to be able to play the bonus London Life RPG.

Nintendo Australia has confirmed that the AU release of Professor Layton and the Last Specter will not be taken from the European version of the game, as is generally the case with Australian releases. Instead Nintendo has chosen to bring across the U.S version for release, which means that the game will also include the bonus Layton RPG called London Life, which is said to be around 100 hours in length. Also, because the game is being taken from the U.S the name will not be changed to reflect the different European name, Spectre's Call.

It is still unclear why the European version of the game is omitting this extra feature of the game. The game will be released in Australia in December.

My guess is that NoE didn't want to translate the whole RPG thing. I won't import the game since my mother wants to play it too and she doesn't speak English.

Funny how London, England will be the only place to not have London Life!

Good thing the DS is region free, probably the last Nintendo console ever to be so - I'd hope fellow Brits would take advantage of this and import the US/Aus version, this is the last time we'll ever be able to do this kind of thing! (without hacking)
