Level-5 has confirmed the next title in the Professor Layton series, Lady Layton.

The game will be coming to 3DS and smartphones in 2017, and looks set to continue the puzzle-solving tradition of the original Layton outings.

The trailer above shows off a lot of animated content and a little of the smartphone game, which is looking quite basic at the moment.

Are you excited about continuing your adventures in the Layton universe, albeit with a new protagonist?
