Level-5 Says Professor Layton Series Would Differ If Seventh Game Were Made

Professor_Layton_logoFollowing the news of a possible Western localisation for Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney, Level-5’s CEO Akihiro Hino has said – during the Japan Expo – that if another game were to be made in the Layton series, it would be very different to what we know today. This news has certainly piqued the interest of many Layton fans as  Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy is – as far as we know – the final instalment in the series to star Professor Layton as the protagonist, and is due for release on the Nintendo 3DS in Europe late 2013, as well as North America in 2014. Here’s what Hino had to say when asked if there would be a new trilogy:

“If a seventh game was to be born one day, it probably won’t be the Layton we know today.”

  1. If they do decide to make a seventh game, I’d hope if it star’d Professor Laytons Son. (Yes he has a son, he has his own game on the phone.) And the son and Luke can travel together with professor Layton missing or something along those lines.

  2. This intrigues me. I’m not a professor Layton fan. Not because I haven’t tried the games but because they weren’t what I expected. I assumed it was a mystery game with detective work like Phoenix Wright. When in reality it’s just a random puzzle game with a story attached. 90% of the puzzels don’t even have anything to do with the story and you don’t even have to do those puzzels. As long as you find the right person to talk to the story will move right along. There are very minimal amount of puzzels you HAVE to do in comparison to how many puzzels are in the game. In Phoenix Wright you actually have to connect clues with statements. Cross examine what people say had find out if they are lying. In Layton all you have to do to move the story along is talk to the right people in the right sequence. That’s boring for me. For puzzle lovers I’m sure that’s great but for mystery lovers its a let down.
