The next Professor Layton game will also be the last. At last night’s Nintendo Direct presentation, Level-5 CEO, Akihiro Hino, announced Professor Layton and the Legacy of the Super Civilization A, which will mark Layton’s final adventure. You can watch Hino’s announcement and the game’s first trailer below, courtesy of YouTube user, Nintendaan:



Professor Layton and the Legacy of the Super Civilization A will be released in Japan sometime in 2013 for the Nintendo 3DS. Level-5 are also partnering with Capcom for the development of another game, Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney, which is a crossover with the popular Ace Attorney series of games.


Meanwhile, North America will get Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask this year. That game is slated for release on October 28th.

  • This is one of the series I don’t mind having hundred of games about. ; w ; Maybe now we’ll get Professor Luke? u.u I’ll miss this series, a lot.

    Looks brilliant like every other one in the series. I could seriously see this becoming an anime or another movie. I loved Eternal Diva and the new puzzle anime. I just love the art style in Layton games though.

  • I’m gonna guess the series stopped selling, and I’m gonna state with certainty that this is because Level-5 took the Activision approach of furiously milking the brand for everything it’s worth rather than let it mature gradually.

    Could be completely wrong though.

    EDIT: Yeah I was probably wrong about this

      No, i’m pretty sure the series is still selling pretty well.

       Or, they may have plans for other series and, being the smart people they are, don’t want to manage that many more titles than they need and are trying to bring a reasonable end to a series where it’ll fit, even if the series is doing very well.

    Final adventure…?

    “…Layton’s final adventure…”
    …the hell!?
    But Unwound Future’s ending was a cliffhanger!

  • By god, they’re making these faster than I can play them. It’s Battle Network all over again. It’s hard to believe that there was a time where I COULD NOT WAIT for Diabolical Box to come out because I just needed more Layton.

    It does look very cool though. I’d better power through the Last Spectre to get caught up.

  • puchinri

    Oh. My. Goodnes. That looks gorgeous. And the Layton games seem to benefit tremendously from the 3DS to me. It’s really a shame that this is the last title.

    . . .Ah. The last one. That’s really sad, actually. ;u;
    But, I look forward to their next title, whether it’s a series or single entry (I’m really looking forward to their next series though!).
