Are Level-5 Publishing The First Layton On 3DS?

How do you like the new 3DS screen layout? Say hello to Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle. We wouldn’t sweat the typos too much — this is just an early build. The interesting point of note here is that the assets for this game were in the third-party folder, not in Nintendo’s — despite the fact that the screens are in English and Nintendo of America publish the Layton games in the U.S.


This could mean Level-5 are taking this one on themselves. Oh, and it’s probably safe to assume Level-5’s time-travelling game was for 3DS after all, too. We’ll probably hear more about it as the year goes on.

  • *sigh* i should start saving for this…

  • Nah. Level 5’s time traveling game is actually a game of its own called

    • Yup, that’s the one I was referring to.

      • Joanna

        But that’s a different name than mask of miracles. Time Travel, the third game in the first trilogy, was made for the DS. I think this is a brand new game, and possibility the second game in the second trilogy.

        I’ve heard time travelers is coming this holiday season and I doubt 3DS will be ready for it then, so I still think these are two separate games.

        • Nono, I meant Time Travelers, not Prof. Layton and the Last Time Travel.

          Time Travelers is almost certainly for 3DS though. Back when Level-5 announced it, they said it was a game for hardware that wasn’t released yet.

    I am so looking forward to this title.
    Do we know if they were actually developing this for 3DS? Because I remember they announced it (would you call it that?) a little while back, but was it being developed with the 3DS in mind? If not, still a must have and looking forward to, but if so, that is a lovely bonus.

    Was this actually on the floor?
