    NOOOOO! Professor!!!!

  • This has also been said about God of War, Final Fantasy,Ratchet and Clank, Halo, Sly Cooper and the third Professor Layton game! I think it’s safe to say this isn’t the last we’ve seen of this franchise

    • Yep! After all, Ace Attorney vs. Prof. Layton is coming soon or after this one!

    • Herok♞

       FF doesn’t count because it was supposed to be squares last game and with Sly the original developer isn’t doing this new one so it doesn’t count

  • Oh, so sad.

  • Nashuim

    This is Layton’s last adventure. Not the last Layton game.

    • EvilRedEye

      Isn’t this the third game in the prequel trilogy? It isn’t possible for it to be Layton’s last adventure in chronological terms.

      • Nashuim

        Last adventure as in “There won’t be any games starring Layton himself anymore”

        •  Hmm so Luke may take over?  I”ll give it a shot.

  • Peace Legacy

    I am calling it, the next game will be a timeskip game title ‘Professor Luke’, featuring the mature bishonen successor

  • JMaster3000

    Final Game??
    What do u mean Final Game???
    The series is ending????

  • SirRichard

    It just won’t be the same without Layton after this, I hope they know. I’m hoping they reconsider.

  • kuroneko0509

    no more puzzle…. T_T

  • Series had a great run, and while it is the last game for Japan, we still got two games and a crossover to play anyways.

  • neocatzon

    Professor.. T_T heart=broken

  • malek86

    Something tells me they will end up making something like Apollo Justice. And then they’ll just bring Layton back.

  • Oni123

     Sad news T-T 

  • Chris Lane

    Great news about a new game. If it truly is the last Layton game, its been one heck of a great series.

  • ParaChomp

    …there’s still the crossover…

  • Shadowman

    No more adventure with Layton all good things must come to an end. T__T *sniff*

  • Ben Lyd

    Didn’t we think Unwound Future would be the last one until the new trilogy was announced? Give it time.

  • Göran Isacson

    … Yeah, I’m just gonna leave this here. If this is the last stop, it’s been one hell of a ride Proffessor. And yet, I must still wonder…
