Mystery solved

Nintendo of Europe has announced Professor Layton on 3DS will release across the continent in 2012.

Known in Japan as Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle — currently called Professor Layton 5 in Europe — was released with 3DS in the Land of the Rising Sun.

Layton and Luke arrive in the town of Montdol to investigate the titular Mask of Miracle that grants wishes to its wearer. However a ruthless chap is using it to turn villagers into stone, and it's up to the smart pair to put an end to it.

We'll have more details as we get them.

Ahh, cool! So this has been confirmed for a European release but not an American one yet? Thanks to Nintendo of Europe, I'm happy to live here for once in my life!

The third game in the storyline? I thought it was the second game of the second trilogy.

Is it the third or the fourth? The last game was a prequel to the Curious Village game, and last year's layton game was just a follow up to the thirth..

I think it doesn't make sense to cram in another layton between 3 and 4..

EDIT: Ok so now I'm confused... Where does the game belong, and what is the second storyline? =O

but great news anyways, I really love the Layton games, always crying at the ending...

I thought there were 3 normal layton games, and this years prequel before those. So this would be the fourth game right? =O

Isn't the film, Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva, set between Last Specter/re's Call and Mask of Miracle?

I haven't played Spectre's Call yet so these Star Wars comparisons are kinda freaking me out a little bit

Whoa, Luke and Layton look cool as 3D models. I'm sure we'll get this in NA around October.

@1 It was confirmed for an American release at E3 2010 before Layton 3 and 4 had come out.

Thats good to hear. Hope that means a US release down the road. I still need to get the new game that just came out recently though.



FonistofCruxis said:

I need to get Spectre's call first but this is good news but I wonder why Emmy hasn't been seen in any screenshots of this? That surprises me as I thought that she would be in all three games in the prequel trilogy.

YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYY hopefully it has London Life 2. That would be sweet.
PS lol it's the layton backstory AGAIN



alLabouTandroiD said:

Including London Life this time ?

And while it's nice Layton comes to the 3DS i'm more hyped for Layton vs. Phoenix Wright.



Hokori said:

this should come out quicker then last specter did since you dont have to translate a 100 hr + RPG



LadyStarstorm said:

Oh, younger Luke again, huh? I'm not through Last Specter yet granted, but I think I'd like to see the story jump back to "present-day" rather than these prequels. I'm sure it will be a great game just like the rest, though. It's more of an aesthetics issue for me, preferring his older self.

Half the people who play layton games buy them for the theme (I could listen to that theme all day)
