New Layton screenshots reveal the Professor's new hat

The best dressed Nintendo character gets a new look

You can see Professor Layton as you've never seen him before in this new gallery of screenshots from Professor Layton And The Miracle Mask + - a new special edition of the game that's coming to 3DS on 6 February in Japan. It features new events, animations, puzzles and a new hat!

We've seen the Professor in his college days in Professor Layton And The Miracle Mask while Lost Future revealed what he looks like when he removes his hat but in these new screenshots he's wearing a different sort of hat. He's sporting a white hat with a beige trim which matches his white tuxedo and beige waistcoat combo. He tops it off with a purple bow tie. Well, we didn't name Layton the best-dressed Nintendo character for nothing.

More importantly, what is he doing? With this get-up, it doesn't look like he's off to solve a puzzle. Indeed, it almost looks like he's getting married. Well, he needs to move on after Claire.

    I was half expecting a bowler hat or maybe even a flat cap, but noooo, its just his standard top hat... in white...

    We don't want to give away any spoilers but those who have watched the Eternal Diva film will probably know who this is.

    Maybe WHERE it is? It's the Masked Gentleman chasing Luke (I assume in some kind of nightmare based on Luke's clothing), which shouldn't be a spoiler to anyone who's even heard of Miracle Mask.

    Layton is always well dressed :twisted:

    ...

    The last two screenshots in the galery AREN'T from 'Azran Legacies', they're from 'Miracle Mask +' (the eShop re-release in Japan).

    Funny that pretty much all websites are making this mistake :|

    I'm starting to lose faith in Layton

    The series started out very strong but now it looks like they're rushing to get a game out every christmas (which is seemingly why they ditched the lovely hand drawn style for the majority of mask of miracle) and now they're bringing out extra editions of their games

    If they ever decide to do more Professor Layton games after Azran Legacies (yes,I know it's the last one), I hope they have Professor Layton in a fez. It'd look so odd.

    I'm upset that the series is coming to an end. :(

    I'm almost certain that woman is Emmy but knowing her, there's no way she would be seen in pink.
