    During Nintendo Direct, the CEO of Level-5, Akhiro Hino announced the sixth entry into the Professor Layton series. This is the last game in the second prequel trilogy.






    Looking good like all Layton games. Excited for it!

    Already heard about this, but thanks for the correct translated title. Can't wait, love Professor Layton games and the movie. I still need Miracle Mask, and the second movie.

    It's the last game with Professor Layton as main character apparently.

    The next game will star a new character named Hermes, and will have an all new cast. Layton reappears as a grizzled pianist/poker player after being framed and fired from the Gressenheller University.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    I noticed a lot of people are really mad about this being the last game with Layton as main character.
    Personally I don't really mind actually.
    I mean come on, the guy already starred in 7 games, he can retire now.
    As long as the plot is still good and the puzzles are fun I'll still play it.
    I do kind of hope the next one will have someone we already know as the main character and not someone completely new.

    does anyone ever recall what happened with the android/ios spin off Layton Brothers which featured his son's as the main characters? But if we was to get another trilogy for the 3DS hopefully they will use Luke as a main character after building him up over 2 trilogies

    That title could certainly use some work. It'd be like calling Raiders of the Lost Ark "Indiana Jones and A Biblical Artifact, Plus Nazis".

    Excited about this, as usual.
    I wonder how fast localization will be now that Level 5 International America has been settled for a long time. (Unless NoA is still localizing?)

    Urgh, if I didn't have an exam coming up, I'd translate this video.

    Haha. Well in that case they'd better bring Layton x Ace Attorney over as well.
