In their recent Vision 2013 conference, Level-5 has unveiled a new Professor Layton game for the 3DS, iOS, and Android. However, those who are expecting to see a familiar view should be prepared, because the new game, titled “Layton 7,” is going to be anything but familiar.
For starters, the new RPG-puzzler will no longer feature the good professor himself, as Layton 7 will be a spin-off of sorts, focusing on a handful of small-town characters that may be familiar to people who played the original puzzle games. Additionally, the game focuses more on controlling the characters than it is on the puzzle, unlike the original games. You can check out a few screenshots below:
