    It seems a bit strange you can't delete your personal data....You can on Brain Training and More Brain Training....surely there must be a way of doing it without saving to overwrite another game



    Can someone out there help?

    I have the same problem,great game but where's the delete?
    I've resorted to starting a new game with a new name do the first puzzle 'where's the village then keep going till you get the box (top right) to save.click save and it will ask do you want to over write ??? file say yes.This will now over write your file and thats about it.do this to all files on your game i've just done the same to all 3 files on our game and it worked.
    Good Luck.

Load a save file you want to delete. Hit save on the same slot, and then eject the game while it's saving. Load the game again, it'll give you a message saying it corrupted a file and was deleted. Do the same for the remaining files, this doesn't erase your own file.

It worked for me hope it works for you too.

    Actually if you click new game on the home screen, enter the names of the people you will be giving it to, proceed with the opening sequence and save the game the first chance you get, you can overwrite any file already saved. Had same problem myself....not anymore!

The game doesn't have an option to delete save games.  What you can do is start a new game using a character name like 'emptyslot' or 'Slot1'  and save at the first possible time.  When you save overwrite the current saved games.  That way the new owner will just see three level 1 games with names like slot1, slot2, slot3.  I hope this helps.

How do i delete personal data from proffesor leytons curious village?


As you would've found, the game doesn't offer a option to delete a save file

The recommended method is to simply start a new game and overwrite the existing save

Saying that, this can be deleted (if you really really wanted to) by purposely corrupting the save file (by, say, turning off the DS as it saves), but this should only be done at your own risk as there's a small chance that you'll end up with a partially corrupt save file that you can neither save to or load from (as someone once found out by accident)

The game doesn't have an option to erase save files

The best method is to merely overwrite the save files

It is possible to "erase" a save file by corrupting it (such as turning off the DS as it saves), but this should, of course, only be done at your own risk
