The new site shows off the upcoming changes they’re adding to the game. The third installment in the Professor Layton series follows the eponymous professor and Luke. The two team up in a time-travel adventure and team up with Luke’s older self.
As they travel through time, they try to change the future to prevent an awful occurrence. By changing some details, they discover a few changes in the timeline. These put them at odds with a terrible fate that they wish to move away from.
The third Professor Layton received solid reviews at launch back in 2010. Reviewers called it the “best Professor Layton game yet.” The game got a ton of praise for its clever puzzles and gorgeous visuals.
Layton 3 not the first mobile title for the franchise
Professor Layton 3 is the third among the Layton series moving to mobile. The first two games in the franchise are available on mobile too. There are five total Layton games on mobile at the moment.
Another game included Layton’s Mystery Journey, which was the latest installment for the franchise. There’s also the Mystery Journey Starter Kit and Layton Brothers Mystery Room. Mystery Room remains as a mobile exclusive.
A price for the game is not yet out, but it will likely go at around $16. All other games in the franchise came out with this price at release.
Professor Layton 3 is a superb family game that is great for any age. The mobile release will give more fans better access to the game.
