Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy is scheduled to arrive on next month in Europe, while North America will be able to embark on the adventure at some point in 2014.

Being a PAL region, it was never really in doubt gamers in Australia and New Zealand would receive the highly anticipated puzzler at around the same time as European players and sure enough Nintendo of Australia has confirmed both the physical and digital versions will release a day later on 9th November. Presumably it's catching a flight over on the 8th.

Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy sees the wise gentleman and his trusty companions Luke and Emmy attempt to solve the riddles of the Azran civilisation. It's the last game in the current trilogy of titles but the series is set to continue as what is currently known as Layton 7 has already been revealed by its developer Level-5.

The top hat-wearing protagonist will also make an appearance in Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney, which will be coming to the 3DS in early 2014.
