Level 5 CEO Teases Next Professor Layton Game


Aside from crossover title, Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney, Level 5 are also working on the next game in the Professor Layton series itself. In reply to a fan over Twitter, Level 5 CEO, Akihiro Hino, dropped a vague hint about the next Layton game.


The general framework for the next Layton title has been outlined, Hino says. However, it’ll be a while before they can announce the game officially. The only thing Hino would reveal is that the game will have a long title in Japanese.


Food for thought:
