Whilst currently working on crossover title Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney, LEVEL-5 have discussed progress regarding the next core Professor Layton instalment.
Responding to a fan through social media site Twitter, LEVEL-5 CEO Akihiro Hino confirmed that they have outlined the framework for the next game, although won’t be making an official announcement regarding it for some time.
The only other tidbit he would provide was that the game will have a long title in Japanese, although this will presumably fall in line with its predecessors.
Professor Layton & the Mask of Miracle is still set to release in Europe and North America, having been available alongside the Nintendo 3DS launch in Japan last year.
