New Professor Layton Game Announced by Level-5
Level-5 have revealed that they are bringing a new entry in the Professor Layton series to 3DS, iOS and Android but it seems like the game, currently dubbed ‘Layton 7’, will be rather different from what we have come to expect from the series. For a start the titular Professor was mysteriously absent from all artwork and video footage that was shown at Level-5’s Vision event. The game was described as a “role-playing puzzle game” and you will apparently be able to play as various new characters such as those shown above. Also new to the series is the 3D isometric viewpoint which can be seen in this video courtesy of nintendoeverything.com.
Besides these few details little is known about the title at this point, but we will bring you more information as it surfaces. Here in Europe we are still awaiting the release of the previous game in the series, Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy, which will be released on November 8.
