If anyone was thinking about getting the wood effect cover plate for their n3DS, Game have it on their website for pre-order for just £10.99, the same price as all the other cover plates

I think this might be a misprice because on the Nintendo store they are selling it for £16.99 and I think it was also more expensive than the regular cover plates in Japan as well.

OMG, 100% confirmation I'm getting a New 3DS :wub:

Pre-ordered.

But to talk about anything that's isn't news 3DS, but I just finished the Phoenix Wright trilogy. Lucky me, hey?

Now, I've already got Dual Destinies ready to roll. But should I get hold of Apollo Justice first? What about the Edgeworth game?

Impatience is making me want to skip straight to five, but I don't want to be missing out on huge references etc.

The first Edgeworth was dreadful. I gather the second one is actually meant to be quite good. It never came out in English but there is a fan translation.

Justice is weaker than 3 and 5 but is a good game on its own, though there aren't many ties between that and 5. Don't forget Prof. Layton vs Wright once you are done with those. It suffers a bit from the Prof. Layton trademark treacle-like pace and the writing isn't as sharp (perhaps surprising since it's by Shu Takami, the creator/writer/director of the original three games), but it's a pretty decent spinoff.

I'm a bit concerned the next game won't be as funny with the Meiji Japan setting. If they even localise it.

Heh; I thought I would've been the only one smitten by that orange-white colour combo.

£7.01 from that site the lovely ttk linked me to, with about £4 shipping. Can take 3 weeks but that's fine. I got the yellow ones too and because I bought a red coat yesterday... some red ones too.

And especially weird that despite that writer, the plot is pure Layton. It absolutely feels like a Layton game with Wright in rather than the other way round.

Am I right in thinking that the New 3DS is quite an upgrade over the original model? And by that I mean the small ones.

The refinements to the design they put into the XL appear to have been incorporated back into the smaller one now, which makes me wonder if i might want to go back to the more compact & portable unit.

I'm still wondering what the point is in getting one of these at launch. I love my xl and see no reason at all to upgrade to the new one until it has a few exclusives. Or that it uses amibos in a meaningful way.

I know ill end up owning both models eventually, just like with my 2 3ds's - but for now there seems little point at all.
