Professor Layton

Eurogamer has put up a new piece detailing the origins of Professor Layton. The site spoke with Level-5 CEO and president¬†Akihiro Hino, who also briefly touched on the series’ future.

Head past the break for the rundown of what Hino shared. You can also find comments from Professor Layton’s voice actor here.



So this seems a bit random, doesn’t it? For whatever reason, this particular scene from Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy shows different-colored clothing for one of the characters (on the right). He’s apparently a priest-like character, so some speculate that the change could be religious-related.


GAME is offering a special Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy pre-order bonus for UK consumers. Reserve the game and you’ll receive a leather card wallet.

Nintendo UK tweeted the pre-order bonus news just a few moments ago:


Just how big of a download is Professor Layton’s latest entry, Azran Legacy? Players opting for the eShop version will need to reserve 7,309 blocks. That amounts to roughly 914MB.

Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy come to Europe on November 8. Nintendo will publish the game in North America sometime next year.
