Level-5′s Professor Layton series has been an annual affair, first on DS, and now on Nintendo 3DS, for six years, with the final game in the puzzling prequel trilogy - Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy - arriving later this year.
Will we see the professor return on Nintendo 3DS next year? Unless Level-5 begins work on a new saga, or works with Nintendo to localise Professor Layton Vs. Ace Attorney, perhaps you’d like to see something a little different from Level-5 – maybe a Layton spin-off series on Wii U?
Sadly, the late 2013 release date for Azran Legacy only applies to Europe, as North American puzzle fans must wait until 2014 for their next Layton fix.

Whilst the retail package launched in Japan back in May, Aero Porter is arriving in Western Nintendo eShops on 29th November, for £4.49 / $4.99 / €4.99. Continue reading →
With Liberation Maiden barely even out of the door, and with its two Guild01 counterparts - Aero Porter and Crimson Shroud – set to launch before the end of the year, Level-5′s been asked whether the Japanese-only sequel, Guild02, is likely to see its mini-games localised and released individually via the Nintendo eShop.

As a mini-game that makes up a quarter of the Japanese-only retail release titled Guild01 from Level-5, Liberation Maiden is Suda51′s contribution to the compilation; which is arriving on Western eShops as a standalone download.
