New Professor Layton Packs an Extra Punch in North America

A Gentleman Always Comes Bearing Gifts

Next month, American audiences will be able to get their hands on the latest title in the excellent Professor Layton puzzle series on the 3DS. The Last Specter, a prequel to the series, tells the story of how Professor Layton met Luke, and how Luke became the professor’s apprentice. Along the way, players wits will be stretched to their breaking point, and possibly beyond, as they will be tasked with solving a myriad of puzzles of all types.

The Layton games have all been addictively fun and have offered polished, entertaining stories and characters. But one thing that makes this fourth instalment stand out from the crowd is the inclusion of a standalone RPG, London Life. In this game, players will create a brand-new protagonist who lives in Layton’s London, and will interact in his everyday life with familiar characters from throughout the franchise’s history. The RPG is purported to be 100 hours in length, and therefore presents quite a considerable bonus to what already promises to be an entertaining title. London Life will even be available for play from the time of purchase, as opposed to our friends in Japan, who had to unlock it by finishing the main campaign.

Alas, our European brethren will miss out on London Life, as it will be cut from their release of the game (titled Professor Layton and the Spectre’s Call in European and Australian markets). The game releases on 17 October, 2011 in North America, and in November in Europe.
