Last night Nintendo held a pretty brief online streaming “event” where they announced the new 3DS XL in addition to a nice list of games coming later this year. One of the games mentioned was Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, and here is the first trailer for it.


The story, as per Wikipedia:

Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask primarily takes place one year following the events of Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva, in the fictional city of Montdol. Montdol, sometimes referred to as the City of Miracles, is a sleepless, European-inspired town in the middle of a carnival commemorating its 18th anniversary as the game begins.

Parts of the game are flashbacks to eighteen years before the main story, focusing on an archaeological expedition led by Professor Layton and his friend Lando Ascad while at high school.

You really can’t argue with Professor Layton games. They are fun, challenging, and offer very interesting stories that play out with gorgeous anime cutscenes. Look for this one to make your brain hurt this November.
