Classic Nintendo DS puzzle game series Professor Layton continues to make its way to iOS slowly but surely.
Professor Layton and the Unwound Future, the last installment in the original trilogy, which launched on DS a decade ago, is coming to the App Store July 13. Complete with some swanky updated HD graphics for your troubles!
In the stunning animated puzzle/adventure game, the titular Professor Layton and apprentice Luke Triton receive a mysterious letter. The twist is that it’s apparently sent from an adult Luke a decade in the future. (Which, if the game launched around 10 years ago, would make that… today?) That kicks off a whole new adventure in which you explore a future version of London, alongside other locations.
Like other games in the series, The Unwound Future takes the form of a series of mini puzzles wrapped up in a point-and-click adventure. These are bound together by some stunning animated cutscenes. It’s definitely worth checking out if you’re a fan of the genre.
As a sprawling series with plenty of other titles (subsequent installments followed the original three games), we should keep getting Professor Layton games for the foreseeable future. So long as folks keep on buying them, that is!
