Win a Copy of Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright from Nintendo of America

Posted by Karen Halloran

Just point at something with your mouth open (or not)

To celebrate Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney's arrival in the far west, Nintendo of America is holding a sweepstakes to give away copies of the game to fourteen lucky winners who can point convincingly and with a certain judge-pleasing style. To enter, take a photo of yourself or someone else doing either the "Correct!" or "OBJECTION!" pose and post it to Twitter using the #LaytonVsWright and #SweepsEntry hashtags:

Important details from the above photographed fine print are that the contest is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada (excluding Québec) age thirteen and up, and that the contest ends today, 28th August, at 5 pm Pacific time / 8pm Eastern (so hurry).

Are you planning on entering the sweepstakes or did you already budget for the game? Is this the excuse you've been looking for to take that themed selfie you'd otherwise have a hard time explaining to family and friends? Not sure you can find an appropriate hat in time? Let us know in the comments!

I've been waiting four years for this game, and it finally comes out tomorrow anyway. I rather just buy it at this point, as I paid-off my pre-order a long time ago and this sweepstake came too little too late.

Nintendo of America is offering something?

Also, poor Quebec, they are not loved. lol

Sometimes I wish I had a Twitter account.
Usually, I'm glad I don't.

This is one of the former times.

WHAAAAT??? Not Québec?!! Why does it always happen to meeeee........ For god sake why? Tabarnak!

No twitter account, so I guess I'm getting the game the old fashion way. All for the best, I don't think I'll be lucky enough to win.

Sigh.. No Twitter.... AGAIN. Oh well my pre-order is already in so it's OK I guess... Not as cool as free but....



ShadJV said:

Funny, I actually have the perfect photo for this already on my phone... But I don't use twitter and it's too much work to do so just for a contest I have little chance in winning.



SleepyCrossing said:

I'd enter this if it wasn't for the fact that I only have a personal account and people would think I'm insane, lol. I'm tempted though..



Starwolf_UK said:

I'm no eligible to enter but I found the bit in the terms saying "Canadian winners must answer skills question" confusing. Looking up it seems they mean a 'Skill testing question' which is (surprise, surprise) a Canadian thing.

It ends today?! I don't think I'll be able to prepare, get my camera ready, and create a Twitter account by then...



ColdingLight said:

Wow... Something American exclusive for once by Nintendo... It must be the second coming of Jesus Christ.



Blast said:

No. I refuse to make a Twitter account. Just give out the game via Club Nintendo! Do a sweepstakes via that way!

It looks like there were a few more than 20 entries. Since they're offering 14, odds are definitely good.



HADAA said:

I take that back, tweets didn't load properly yesterday. There were about 80 valid entries, not counting late submissions since those probably won't count. Odds have dropped to 1 in 5 or 6.
