While today's 3DS-focused Nintendo Direct revealed a few titles that we didn't know about, there were a few pieces of information on those we most definitely do know exist.

One of those titles was Professor Layton and the Azran Legacies, which is the last game in the prequel trilogy. We can now confirm that Europe can get its puzzle fix this year, while North America will unfortunately need to wait until 2014.

Launched in Japan in February, Professor Layton and the Azran Legacies sees Hershel Layton travel the world with his assistants Emmy and Luke as he attempts to solve the riddles of the ancient Azran civilisation. Naturally, the game features a new set of puzzles - more than 500 according to Nintendo.

There's no concrete date yet for the Level 5 puzzler, but we'll be sure to keep you posted about any further developments.
