LEVEL-5 haven’t shared any more about Layton 7 since we were first shown the project’s intended direction way back in August 2013.
It was a drastic departure from the Professor’s adventures that we’ve come to love, inhabitants milling about a 3D town that players could explore at will. However, previously destined as an iOS, Android and Nintendo 3DS release, LEVEL-5’s Vision 2015 event this week has confirmed that they no longer plan to release the game on Nintendo’s handheld.
It’s unclear why, with CEO Akihiro Hino detailing that players will be tasked with trying to figure out who the Vampire is by playing a card game and dabbling in fortune-telling. That’s now headed to iOS and Android devices in Japan this summer, with no word on a western release.
