Nintendo has confirmed an October 22nd release date for Professor Layton and the Lost Future.
The game is the third outing for the handheld puzzle-adventure and sees the Professor and Luke dealing with a future threat to London. It includes 165 new puzzles and several new mini-games – as well as a Super Hint feature for those who find certain puzzles a bit too taxing.
Also included are a higher number of animated movie scenes and a greater emphasis on narrative. DLC will also be made available over Nintendo Wi-Fi Connect.
“Players will be able to discover more about the Professor's mysterious past through flashbacks,” the press release reads.
“The story is revealed with full-motion animation sequences that will explain the secrets behind Professor Layton's lost lover and how he obtained his well-renowned hat.”
