Previous Professor Layton titles offered weekly puzzle downloads in the months after their release in order to sustain the experience far beyond the standard game. With Miracle Mask Level 5 is taking the concept even further – a puzzle a day for its entire first year in circulation. Looks like they’re trying to maximize the 3DS’s auto-update features, and I’ve got to hand it to them, it’s positively genius.
Nintendo doesn’t typically include a lot of downloadable content in its 1st-party games, but maybe they could make solid use of this feature for their software, too. Imagine Pikmin 3DS with downloadable stages and new tasks to complete or a Pokémon game with new trainer challenges in some kind of ever-changing tournament environment… Man, March can’t come any sooner, can it?
