We know the Layton series is a moneymaker -- the first four DS games have shipped over 11 million units globally. Nonetheless, every time one of the games hits a milestone, I feel like throwing a party.

Just this morning, Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino tweeted that the original game, Curious Village, had crossed one million copies sold in Japan alone. Time to break out the good vintage.

There was no reason for me to post this other than that Layton is a badass. I apologize for nothing.
