First Look At The Final Professor Layton

Today, Level-5 unveiled its latest Professor Layton. It's not only the sixth Layton game. It's the last one.

The name of the game is Layton Kyoujyu to Cho Bunmei A no Isan (loosely "Professor Layton and the Legacy of Super Civilization A"). The game takes Layton and his trusty assistant to a snow covered land, where there are puzzles and a mysterious young girl.

The game is slated for release next year.


    Wait, so that incredibly depressing ending in Layton 3 is the final ending...?

    I doubt it. I expect a sequel trilogy next.

      All good things must come to an end?
      Don't get me wrong, Layton 3's ending was really really depressing, but it was also beautiful and wrapped some things up nicely. Whilst I certainly would not be opposed to more Layton, if it did finish on this game (let's hope there's a better name than 'Super Civilisation A') (also ignoring Ace Attorney X Layton game), I would be happy to call the series at that. A damned good series, too.

    Wait - what was the fifth one? I've only finished the original 3.

      Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle. It's going to be on the 3DS.

    Knowing how long it takes Level5 games it make it out of Japan, I won't start getting excited for this for another year yet.

    And good for them for choosing a stopping point. I'm amazed they got six games out of it, really, as much as I love the series.
