Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright - EU Demo, Johnny Smiles, and the Return of Shu Takami

Well first off, I see that the EU website for PLvPW has slapped a demo onto their site. There's only one puzzle (hmph), but you should check it out. Basically you guess what the real shadow is. ^_^

Next up is Johnny Smiles. He's not a new character per se, but since the trailer video is on the demo page and Johnny is on there, why not lol. Let's hear some background info on him and my thoughts on his name pun. (The video on the demo page also has the European voices of Phoenix and Layton btw)

Well, Johnny is a security guard who was on patrol on the ship, and apparently witnessed Espella's assault.

Alright. So, his surname "Smiles"... ... ... Please don't make me explain. XD Next up is "Johnny." Now off the top of my head, I have a couple thoughts on this guy's name. He looks like the womanizer type, so with the crude slang meaning of his name, it means "condom." ;D Or a guy with a large package lol. Another possibility is that it's basically referring to the guy as a chick magnet, which I'm sure he probably is haha. But if that's the case, why make him a police officer rather than an escort or something? Well, that brings me to a third idea of mine. "Johnny" is a slang used in the police force, such as referring to copper (Johnny Hopper) or the John Q. Law a.k.a. Johnny Law (or Johnny for short). So who knows, maybe it's because of that he's a police officer. Oh name puns, you~

And lastly, it was announced on Nintendo Direct that Shu Takami -  Ace Attorney's creator - will be returning to the series! (*゚▽゚*) Apparently he's been overseeing some new, "totally different" entry into the series, so we'll just have to wait and see what it is. ewe

That's all for now!

P.S. European release March 28th~
