Professor Layton and the Last Specter Launches

Professor Layton and the Last Specter, the newest entry in Nintendo's Professor Layton series, joins Professor Layton and the Curious Village (2008), Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box (2009) and Professor Layton and the Unwound Future (2010) as part of a series that has together sold more than 12 million games worldwide.

Launching today for the Nintendo DS, the game marks an extraordinary new chapter in the fan-favorite puzzle adventure franchise, featuring a prequel storyline that invites players to help the top-hatted professor solve his very first case.

In Professor Layton and the Last Specter, distinguished scholar Hershel Layton has yet to become a world-famous master sleuth. Upon receiving a mysterious letter from an old friend, he travels to a rural town called Misthallery that's said to be haunted by a nocturnal phantom.

As players progress through the story by solving a wide variety of logic, slide, picture, number and language puzzles, they'll also encounter Layton's brainy assistant, Emmy Altava, and witness his first meeting with would-be apprentice Luke Triton.

The game's numerous puzzles intertwine with the storyline in clever ways and are suitable for all skill levels, making it an obvious choice for younger gamers, so we wouldn't be surprised to see it at the top of Xmas lists -- and its DLC expansion content means it will keep on entertaining, as starting October 23rd, players can also download additional puzzles by connecting their Nintendo DS system to the Internet via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.
