Professor Layton and the Curious Village EXHD looks great in first trailer


Those HD cutscenes are worth it, alone

A scant few days after its announcement, Professor Layton and the Curious Village EXHD has received a trailer and it looks great. While the game perfectly mimics the Nintendo DS' dual screen setup on larger displays, I'm mostly in awe of the beautiful upconversion on those cutscenes. Even on the DS' pixelated screen, the cutscenes looked wonderful and were very reminiscent of Studio Ghibli. Now, in full HD, they look stunning.

I'm not sure if the trailer is revealing other information about the game (I can't read Japanese), but it does give us a glimpse at just how Layton will play on a smart device. Hopefully, Level-5 brings this to the West, because I'm game to replay Layton in HD.
