Dark Magic and Tense Mystery with Professor Layton

The puzzle-solving archaeologist makes his return to Nintendo gaming.

If you fancy yourself as someone able to think themselves out of a tricky situation, you’ll love the new Professor Layton adventure. As, for the first time ever in 3D, the puzzle-solving archaeologist makes his return to handheld gaming on the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL.

The Professor has made something of a name for himself in his past encounters with The Curious Village, The Diabolical Box, The Unwound Future, The Last Specter and The Eternal Diva, but in Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, he may just be about to face his biggest challenge yet. The game features 150 new brainteasers for players to wrap their head around, with 365 additional Daily Puzzles set to roll out through the Nintendo Network every day from the day it is launched.

In this game, Professor Layton teams up with Luke and Emmy when it transpires that the city of Monte d’Or is being terrorised by a series of dark miracles. It seems the mysterious Masked Gentleman is responsible for these strange events and Layton himself believes it is the power of the Mask of Chaos which is being used to unleash these evil forces. He will need to dig deep into the darkest recesses of his past if he is to come up with a solution to stop the madness and return the city to a state of peace and tranquillity.

Of course, you’ll need to have your wits about you if you are to help the Professor on this latest mission and along the way you can expect some wonderful puzzles, mysteries, mini games and visual magic thanks to the power of the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL console systems. But while the wonderful hand-drawn look of this latest Layton title is in keeping with the style of the series so far, this game offers incredible 3D animation and character modelling to give it all the depth you would expect from a Nintendo 3DS title.

Like the recently launched New Super Mario Bros. 2, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask makes full use of the 90 per cent larger screen of the Nintendo 3DS XL – which makes the 3D visuals even more thrilling to see. You can get your hands on a copy of the game from on October 26th. Just make sure you prepare yourself for an adventure that will require a sense of brain power, as well as an appetite for fun and a nose for getting to the heart of the most cryptic of mysteries.
