Look At The Next Professor Layton Game

By the next Professor Layton game I mean the next one for Japan. Who knows if Nintendo or another publisher will release Professor Layton and the Demon’s Box overseas. Regardless of a hazy international future the Layton series marches forward with another trilogy.


Professor Layton and the Devil’s Flute is the first game in the new series. The story predates Professor Layton and the Curious Village by explaining how Layton and his young puzzle solving companion Luke meet up. As shown in the concept art, a female companion accompanies joins the quest. Shima and a cat with curly whiskers will be two of the other regulars in this story arc. Nintendo DS owners can pick up Professor Layton and the Devil’s Flute this fall.

    Hearing about this makes me want to go slap the head honchos at NOA. What in the world is taking them so long?!

    Anyone notice the new DS ads starring Lisa Kudrow playing professor Layton? Odd that they’d start advertising the game this late.

    I would prefer Professor Layton 2 and 3 here, before announcing Professor Layton 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 in Japan! Q_Q

      you and me both. It’s getting ridiculous, how long to we have to wait? Unless Nintendo just dropped it, and if they did, oh my I think I’ll have to storm their store in protest like Bob did. ahahahaha. but serious, get a move on NOA!!!!

        For me, I actually had a very hard time playing the first one because the Eng. text was extremely small, my eyes would get tired after solving several puzzles in a row. Later I played 2 in Jpn and was surprised how easily it was to read the text. I’ve been playing 3 on the bus and at home now, at snail pace.

        Other than the font size, the US version actually trumps the Jpn original a little bit because of the genuine British accent, although I like Oizumi Yo’s Layton a lot. Was the sales good in the US? I don’t see what’s the hold up..

        Originally I was excited about the upcoming feature length anime movie, I definitely wouldn’t mind another trilogy. Prof. Layton and Phoenix Wright have become my favorite series on the DS, great to pick up and play at any time.
