Professor Layton and the Azran Legacies is the last game in the prequel trilogy and is heading to European shores this year, while North Americans will get their puzzle fix in 2014.

It's been out in Japan since February and is largely seen as the last ever Professor Layton title, although that may not necessarily be the case as Level-5 President Akihiro Hino revealed at the Japan Expo earlier this month he wants to make a brand new Layton adventure.

Hino said he is pleased with the latest release but doesn't want the series to come to an end just yet. Should Level-5 create another title, Hino would like to include a host of new challenges for the legendary scholar to complete.

At the same event, Hino also confirmed something was "in the works" regarding the localisation of Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney, but couldn't give any further details.

It looks like the Professor Layton franchise may not be over after all. Will you be hoping for more after Professor Layton and the Azran Legacies? Let us know in the comment section below.
