The last Professor Layton game we saw was Layton 7, which was a smartphone game loosely related to the series. According to Level-5, the new Professor Layton game will be its revival as a major title. Hino said that the voice talent for the new Professor Layton game will be topnotch, and that we’ll also get a new protagonist. This protagonist won’t be Layton’s son Alfendi. More details will be revealed at Level-5 Vision 2016.
