Akihiro Hino, the president of the game developer Level-5, announced at Wednesday’s streamed Nintendo Direct presentation that his company will release a new Professor Layton game for the Nintendo3DS next year. According to Hino, Layton-Kyōju to Chō-Bunmei A no Isan (Professor Layton and the Legacy of the Super Civilization A) will be Professor Layton’s “final and greatest adventure.”
The story is set about one year after the fifth game, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask. Professor Layton and his allies receive a mysterious letter, so they visit an snowbound town where they discover a girl preserved in ice.
The girl leads them on a great adventure around the world in the airship Bostonias, all to solve the mystery of an ancient civilization.
