A new version of Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask is heading to the Japanese 3DS eShop, Famitsu has revealed.

The download-only title, simply known as Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask – features new elements. There are now three save slots, new tutorials, hints for the “Ruins” mode, extra animations, events, puzzles, and more. If I’m reading this correctly, it also looks like it’ll come with all of the extra puzzles sent out online.

Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask launches on February 6 for 3,000 yen.

Didn’t get your fix roller coaster fix with RollerCoaster Tycoon 3D? Then you may want to think about purchasing “Coaster Creator 3D” when it hits the eShop in the near future.

Coaster Creator 3D provides the standard coaster content: creation, customization and sharing. You’ll be able to partake in a career mode featuring 20 design challenges, unlockable theme park locations, decals and other extras. There’s also a Coaster Sandbox mode, a Star Roller game, QR code sharing, and more.

A video showing Coaster Creator 3D’s track editor can be found above.

Code of Princess came out in North America as a retail game at the end of last year. And last week, Atlus brought the game to the 3DS eShop.

Europe will be receiving Code of Princess as well, but only as an eShop download. Agatsuma Entertainment confirmed that its title will not be sold at European retail.

A customer service representative said:

Thank you very much for your interest in our title; Code of Princess!

Yes, we will be releasing the title as OUR title through Nintendo eShop ONLY.
We are still working on. So, please be patient. Thank you very much for your interest, again!
