Next January, Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva, the animated film based on the Professor Layton puzzle games, will be released in Japan. To hold everyone over until then, here are images from the flick.
The movie will be produced by Japanese studio TOHO and will get an entirely new story drafted by Level 5 president Akihiro Hino. Hino is the brains behind all the previous Layton games as well as directing the forthcoming Dragon Quest IX. The game's voice actors will reprise their roles for the feature animated films.
The Layton movie is an original story from series creator Akihiro Hino and will feature game characters Professor Layton and his apprentice Luke. Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva will be produced by Masakazu Kubo, producer of the Pokémon films.
