Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino took center stage during today’s Nintendo Direct broadcast to announce the latest entry in the Professor Layton series.
Hershel Layton’s final adventure, Professor Layton Chou Bunmei to A no Isan (translation: Professor Layton and the Legacy of Advanced Civilization A) will launch in 2013 with all-new puzzles for 3DS and 3DS XL. Set one year following the events of the previous Layton, it begins after Layton receives a message from someone who claims to have discovered a live mummy.
