Professor Layton has become quite a phemonal hit on the DS and so it stands to reason that another game would be released, this time, the professor and his assistant, Luke have to travel through time to the Lost Future.
It’s due in the not-too-distant future of October 22nd when gamers will be able to discover more about the Professor’s mysterious past through flashbacks with a whole host of exciting additions and fresh challenges. There will be three brand new types of mini-game puzzles, but not only that, interact with his new pet parrot and complete a storybook by using special stickers which are awarded to you on solving special puzzles hidden throughout the game.More info:
If puzzles prove too challenging for some, there is always help at hand by utilising a limited number of handy hints which are available for each individual puzzle. Players can use hint coins to help prevent giving wrong answers. They can also earn Picarats for puzzles completed correctly, but be warned! For every answer you give which is incorrect, you will reduce your score of Picarat currency that you will gain along the way.
For those who are truly stuck, there is a new Super Hint feature which will offer an extremely telling clue – although this is an expensive practice and will cost you two hint coins!
And for those who just can’t get enough of the puzzles, the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service will be on hand to download additional content for a limited time.
Professor Layton and the Lost Future will also feature even more narrative and animated movie scenes than in the two previous instalments that will give more insight into the previously mentioned professor’s mysterious past and even explain the secrets behind Professor Layton’s lost lover and how he obtained his well-renowned hat.
