Professore Layton 6 TGS 2012 video demo - Our first look at what could be Layton's last adventure

America has always been behind Japan when it comes to the Layton series. For example, the US and Europe are getting the fifth Layton game, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, at the end of next month, while it came out in Japan some 18 months ago. In fact, a sixth Layton game has already been announced for release in Japan next year, and the first demo for it premiered at 2012's Tokyo Game Show. The tentative English title for the game is Professor Layton and the Azran Legacies, and we got to play the brief demo on the TGS show floor. Check out the first couple of puzzles, as well as some of the new characters in the video below...

And while you're waiting on that game's international release, check out the English language trailer for Miracle Mask.

    I hope that you're joking. Because I'm sure you're aware that right now they are at the TOKYO Game Show.

    Yeah so this basically the last game in his Past Era, before the first game even starts. Looks great so far, and didnt they like a year(?) or so ago they showed something called "Layton Brothers" where its a few guys and a girl together solving Mysteries who seems to be relatives of Layton, im guessing thats next which looks interesting.
