Check Out This Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva Trailer

Both Level-5’s new properties are being successfully spun off into a variety of media; Inazuma Eleven with a lengthy anime series and Professor Layton as a new animated movie. Like Inazuma Eleven, Layton has a manga that serializes in CoroCoro magazine, too.


The movie trailer above is from the official Layton website. You can watch two new short trailers on there as well.


Considering how well Layton has done in the West, it isn’t a stretch of the imagination to assume that someone will end up licensing the movie in the U.S. Whether it’s Nintendo or Level-5, or an anime licensee like Funimation (they get all the good stuff nowadays) remains to be seen though.


Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva will release in Japanese theatres on December 19th. Anime News Network reports that a Layton live-action movie is in the works, too.

    I love it, definitely watching the movie, I’m almost done w/ the 3rd game now.

    It’d be funny if they used Ooizumi You (Layton’s VA) as the live action Layton too, I mean he wore the hat in TV spots and all. I liked him from prevous TV dramas.

    Um, yeah but “The series loved by over 460 thousand people is becomming a movie!!!!!!!!” sounds fishy (besides the extra exclamation marks). Is that the old problem with Japanese figures often given in multiples of 10000 units instead of the 1000 usually used in the West?

    I guess it says “the series loved by 4,6 million people”, but anyway: Layton movie! Huzzah!
