Professor Layton and the Spectre’s Call headed to Europe

Nintendo of Europe have today announced that the next entry within the Professor Layton series is to release for Nintendo DS later this year.

Professor Layton and the Spectre’s Call, as it is to be titled, is the fourth entry within the popular puzzle series and acts as a prequel in which the Professor stumbles upon a mysterious, foggy town known as Mist Haley, protected by the watchful eye of a shadowy giant whenever his flute is used to summon him.

However, the figure has turned against the village it previously swore to protect and it is up to the Professor, a young boy from the village called Luke Triton who is heavily involved in the legend of the Specter, and a former colleague named Emmy Altava, to seek out why.

No European release date has yet been confirmed.

  1. Excellent! It its a shame all the games after will be for nintendo 3ds as it actually screws your eyes up so is no use anyway! It’s a piece of rubbish! Annoying as the dsi hasnt been out very long so those people will have wasted money as games are mainly only being made for the nintendo 3ds!

    • Remember that you can always turn the 3D Slider off though if you find it discomforting! You can still enjoy the graphical boost of the Nintendo 3DS over the DS family as well then, and there’s plenty of fantastic software coming up 🙂

    • The 3DS is no worse for your eyes than 3D movies.
