Professor Layton And The Azran Legacies release date confirmed

It's coming to Japan next month

Level 5 have confirmed the Professor Layton And The Azran Legacies release date for Japan. The final Professor Layton adventure will be released for 3DS on 28 February in the country.

And there's a bonus for those who buy Professor Layton and the Azran Legacies early. Fans could get hold of a bronze statue or a gold coin.

Professor Layton And The Azran Legacies is the sixth game in the adventure series and the final episode of the prequel trilogy. Those who have completed Professor Layton And The Miracle Mask will have seen a teaser video of Azran Legacies and it looks set to be Herschel's most action-packed adventure yet. Although there will still be time to solve puzzles.

Professor Layton 6 takes place one year after the events of Miracle Mask and begins with Layton receiving a letter (surprise) from a person who claims to have found a living mummy. No doubt there will be a logical (well logical by Layton standards) explanation for this. After all, every puzzle has a solution.

There is no word of a Professor Layton And The Azran Legacies UK release date but these games have been released every Autumn over here since Curious Village in 2008. Given that it is out in Japan in February, that leaves plenty of time for localisation. Hopefully, like Miracle Mask, it will feature amusing local dialect, like...

    A bronze statue or a gold coin sounds Amazing! Wonder what we will get (we did get a lether luggage tag last year for MM, so who knows)

    It'll be nice if this did came out at around Christmas time this year,and maybe the western release of Ace Attorney VS Professor Layton.

    If this is indeed the last Professor Layton game, I think I'd rather get Professor Layton Vs Ace Attorney localised here first.

    Can anybody really see this coming out in the UK this year? Personally,I think Professor Layton VS Phoenix Wright will come out this year,followed by this Professor Layton game next year.

    Be brilliant if we could get both Azran Legacies and PLVAA this year. Really looking forward to both of them.
