A pleasing puzzle solution
The Professor Layton series was an endearing part of the DS and 3DS generation, spawning six main-series titles and a spin-off with Ace Attorney. After that point Level-5 called it a day on the puzzle solving gentleman, no doubt concerned about the IP losing its freshness and a general decline in sales. It was a sad...
Nintendo to publish in EU, daily puzzles to be added
Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy is a welcome return for the classic series formula, albeit we have a new protagonist and a focus on light-hearted storytelling and a push to keep the focus on puzzles. Already confirmed for the Fall season in North America,...
Layton’s Mystery Journey takes 2nd for 3DS, too
Earlier today we shared Famitsu numbers covering the Splatoon 2 launch in Japan; now Media Create has weighed in as well. Media Create brings a lower figure, but it's still the biggest Switch game launch to date, and also led to significant hardware sales. Splatoon 2 may be the dominant arrival in...
Passing the torch to a new generation
After a hiatus of a few years, the Professor Layton series is finally being resurrected - albeit with a twist - this year with Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy. Starring Katrielle Layton — daughter of the famed professor — this one promises to bring more brain bending...
That's one puzzle solved
It's been too long since we last had a Professor Layton game, and though that era in the series has passed we do have Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy to look forward to. The good news is that it's not too far away, with Nintendo of America confirming that it'll arrive in the region...
That reminds us of a puzzle!
Update: In happy news, it's been confirmed that this is due for a Fall / Autumn in North America and Europe. Original Article: After flirting with the idea for a dramatic change of direction in the Layton series after its first six releases on DS, 3DS and some smart devices, Level-5 shifted towards a more subtle...
The Professor Layton series' "Puzzle Master"
The Professor Layton games form a popular portable series that's spanned across the DS and 3DS, famous for their puzzle-based gameplay. Though fans still await the coming of the mysterious 'Layton 7', the series recently lost a great contributor on its development side. It was recently reported that...
The mystery continues
Nearly two years ago, Level-5 announced Layton 7, a curious departure for the series that would be coming to iOS, Android, and 3DS. Since then, next to nothing has come out about the project, but that all changed at Level-5's Vision event this year. There's been a change in the design of the title, with it now being...
"We wanted to offer two intelligent characters"
Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy has now arrived in stores around the world, bringing a close to the prequel trilogy and, it seems, the adventures of the iconic Professor Hershel Layton. It was a fantastic finale that was also tinged with sadness, as it closed the door on the top hat wearing...
No objection to this development
Way back in August we finally had confirmation that Professor Layton Vs. Ace Attorney was being localised for an early 2014 release in both Europe and North America. Updates since then have been non-existent, however, so it's reassuring that the title has now been rated by the Australian Classification Board, which...
Mark out 28th February in your diaries
Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy arrived in Europe recently, bringing a close to the series in its current form. Unfortunately North American gamers only had a vague 2014 release window, but during today's Nintendo Direct festivities it was confirmed that the 3DS title will finally arrive in the region on...
A final puzzle to savour
The arrival of Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy is an occasion both exciting and tinged with sadness. For dedicated fans of the franchise across DS and 3DS there's the promise of hundreds of puzzles and a generous dosage of gentlemanly charm, offset by the knowledge that — for now at least — this is the last...
It's all rather mysterious
We already knew that, as it stands, Professor Layton and the Azran Legacies is the last of the popular series starring the tea-loving puzzle master. Perhaps not a surprise as sales dropped away in Japan, particularly, with each release, Level-5 has nevertheless been clear that the brand may well continue in some form. The...
A puzzle yet to be solved
Thanks to its unique control interface and dual-screens, the DS generation has paved the way for some of the most diverse games ever committed to cartridge, perhaps none more so than the Professor Layton series. Ask a number of people ten years ago whether they would be interested in playing a game that tasks you with...
