Level-5 top dog Akihiro Hino has told Famitsu (via Andriasang) a 3D Professor Layton game on Wii U would be 'interesting'.

So far the popular puzzle series has only appeared on portable formats, but with the Wii U's touch screen GamePad and wealth of inputs it might be able to do the tricky teasers justice. Hino says a game where you walk around a 3D version of London would be interesting; another word might be "awesome".

Of course as we're still waiting for Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle — released in Japan in 2011 — don't go holding your breath for a Wii U Luke and Layton adventure.
