Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask Teaser Trailer

Posted by James Newton

Hats off

Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask is coming to Europe and North America later this year, and we have a teaser trailer to show more of Herschel and Luke's adventures.

It's worth watching not just for the always impeccable animation quality and atmosphere, but because you get to see a young Herschel Layton without his trademark top hat. There's something about puzzles and adventure in there too, but we're most interested in Herschel's haircut.

Wonderful to see Emmy return. The voice casting for young Layton was wonderful! If it's just the same guy but higher, I wouldn't be surprised in the slightest. This game is going to be a real treat.

Looks like the plot will be slightly more interesting than last spectre's mess.

I love more Layton, but I'm finding the part with Layton fighting off Robotic mummies at an Indy style temple to be a bit Jumping the Shark over here... Still, Layton is all about implausibility I guess.

Glad that this is coming. Have not bought a 3DS game since Resident Evil. Layton and Zero Escape will be the next 2 3DS games I get.

@TwilightPoint Professor Layton has been inspired by Zelda before, if you look at the Spector's Flute in Professor Layton and the Last Spector, it looks like the Ocarina Saria gives to Link, the flute is also known to have magical powers.

I still need to get Spectre's call but this does look like an excellent game. Young Layton's hair is awful though and I agree with Karakoto that the fight with the robot mummies seemed like it was jumping the shark.

The footage of the puzzles during the Nintendo Direct and this trailer look amazing. The atmosphere just looked so vibrant unlike any other location in the series. This by far looks like the best Layton game. I know I still have to see the movie, but why must it be released in November?

@Red_Kinect Professor Layton is a point and click puzzle game where you move around and try to solve a mystery by finding clues. Only the cutscenes and certain other times are the characters fully voiced. I don't however know if the cutscenes will be in 3d or not. Before this one, I'd reccomend that you get Professor Layton and the Last Specter, which includes London Life, a separate RPG similar to Animal Crossing, and maybe even the movie, Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva, so you'll be caught up. Then you could buy the other trigoly if you wanted.

No. It's definitely not a hidden object game. The puzzles are logic and strategic based. If you need an example, just go to the official website and there should be a few demo puzzles. If you answer the puzzle correctly, you'll earn these things called picarats which can be used to unlock bonuses. Each time up to two times you answer incorrectly, the number you earn will go down. It also includes three minigames within each game. I'm sure you'd enjoy it if you bought it.
