The U.S. version of Professor and the Last Specter comes with a bonus RPG mode developed by Mother 3 maker Brownie Brown, titled Professor Layton’s London Life. You don’t play as Layton himself in this mode. Instead, you design your own character and perform tasks for the townsfolk of Little London.
The trailer gives a glimpse of how you can customize your character in London Life. You can also collect items and furniture in the game, some of which will help you enter certain parts of the city.
Professor Layton and the Last Specter is slated for release on October 17th in North America.
