Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracles To Have Daily Downloadable Puzzles

By Ishaan . January 17, 2011 . 8:34am

Level 5 have a habit of supporting their Professor Layton games on the Nintendo DS with weekly downloadable content post-release. Every single Professor Layton game allows you to download a new puzzle through the system’s Nintendo Wi-Fi connection every week.


With Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle on the Nintendo 3DS, Level 5 are going the extra mile to change “every week” to “every day” — for a whole year, at that. A new puzzle will be made available for the next 365 days following  the game’s release, according to Japanese retailer, AmiAmi.


Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle is a Nintendo 3DS launch title, so the game will release on the same day as the system on February 26th in Japan.

  • hooray for DLC

    Hey, that’s awesome. I’m really looking forward to the game. The only let-down I have for it so far is the boxart.

    • Aoshi00

      Same here, where’s the miracle, where’s the mask, where’s the evil guy, and where’s the trusty assistant no. 1 Luke *.*? Very disappointing boxart as part of my Layton collection indeed.. and usually Lvl 5 games have such nice cover art..

      • puchinri

        Exactly! I especially miss Luke. There’s no air of excitement to this boxart. Maybe a little curiousity that leads into a hint of mystery, and I wouldn’t even call it a bad boxart, but it simply isn’t a Prof. Layton boxart.

        “where’s the evil guy”

        It’s not a guy. :P

        • Aoshi00

          well whoever the villain is, the one wearing the mask or whatnot.. usually the Layton cover art is very indicative of its title..

  • PrinceHeir

    i wonder how much each dlc costs? hopefully it’s either free or make it per pack per month.

    • Aoshi00

      I think they’re all on the cartridge like the old games, they’re just unlocking each day by day.. Time to finish Devil’s Flute…

    My mind will explode, i still have puzzles i can’t solve from the very first game.

  • I feel bad for the team that must come up with 365 new puzzles. Also, I love the fact that young Layton has an afro…I wanna see what’s under his hat even more :D

  • That is awesome, pretty much seals my decision about what launch game to pick up.

    And Professor Layton VS Ace Attorney is a brilliant idea as well.

    Love the Professor Layton series. Still need to start and finish the Diabolical Box and Unwound Future (thanks MH tri and Diablo II :( ).

    Picture reminds me of V for Vendetta. :)
