The game is the sixth planned entry in the Professor Layton series and due to be released in Japan on February 28th. Nintendo has yet to confirm a release date for the West, but hopefully we won’t have to wait too long. Here’s some new details.
- Targent have kidnapped the mysterious young girl, Aria

- The Cohanbale ruins contain key information to the Azran legacies
- This game features Garden Viewing mode that requires you to link the flowering energy of the explosive flowers and bloom all the withering flowers
- Do not provide any poisonous mushrooms any unnecessary energy or else they will spread their spores, which can’t be a good thing

To help raise money for Child’s Play, Cody Thomson, 36, is planning to walk across several states in the U.S., including N.C., Tenn., Miss., Ark., Okla., Texas, N.M., Ariz. and Calif. Thomson, a self-proclaimed avid gamer, said to IGN that he is packing his Nintendo 3DS and plans to play Paper Mario, Professor Layton and Fire Emblem at the end of each day. It’s going to take roughly eight months for Thomson to traverse the country, and he will have walked about 3,000 miles once he’s done. Thomson’s lengthy journey begins on March 10th.
“I’ve spent months on the planning. Now I’m a few weeks out from setting off, so it’s a good time to start talking about this and raising some funds for Child’s Play. I’m seeking about $8,000 to fund the costs of the journey and everything else is for the kids. The sky’s the limit. But however much I get, I’m doing this.”
“When I was a kid I had an eye disease and the doctor actually advised that I get a games machine to strengthen my eye muscles. My parents bought me an Atari 2600. I wasn’t hospitalized, but games helped me. They had a beneficial impact. They helped me to see and I think that Child’s Play is wonderful, what they do. Kids in hospital need escapism as much as anybody.”
“I’ve been saving up games. I have Paper Mario, Professor Layton and Fire Emblem planned, so that’s something to look forward to at the end of every day.”
