Default Fantasy Life 2 and Professor Layton 7 Announced | ios & android

Article Here.



While called "Professor Layton 7", it features entirely different gameplay centered around cards. (?)



Fantasy Life 2 will feature a village building mode similar to sims titles.

Honestly, I'm pretty annoyed. These are obviously spin-off titles but they're still giving them numbered names. Heck, the field in "Fantasy Life 2" is ripped straight from the first game.

So instead of a fully fleshed out sequel we get a watered-down version of the previous game + inevitable microtransactions.

And Layton 7 isn't even a real entry in the series as the gameplay is from something else entirely with a Professor Layton skin on it.

I don't mind mobile but these both look like serious downgrades from previous titles in their respective franchises so no thanks.

The absence of 3DS support for these titles is disappointing and the (ab)use of the Layton trademark for one of those titles even more so; however, as you said, these games don't look like anything special.

At least the 3DS will be getting Yokai Watch in the West next year thanks to Nintendo.

Buy at least there's Yokai Watch to look forward to.

I feel most layton fans would consider the ace attorney spinoff more of a Layton 7(6? Did the game come out before Azran outside of NA?) then an IOS card(?) title. Curious what the logic behind that decision was.
