Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask was released as a launch title in Japan for 3DS on 25th February, and at a little over a year and a half old is finally being released in Europe on 26th October, arriving in North America on 28th October.

Fear not, our Australian readers, as Nintendo has now lifted the lid on a release date for the Professor's latest in Australia and New Zealand; it'll be released on 27th October down south. The title will be available as a packaged game from retail stores and simultaneously as a download direct to your 3DS from the Nintendo eShop.

Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask is the fifth game in the series, where you pick up a year after the events of Professor Layton and the Last Specter. The game is set in a mysterious town called Monte d'Or, and is sure to be packed full of the puzzles we all love and enjoy in each Professor Layton game.
