Professor Layton and the Curious Village is on its way to iOS and Android
Hopefully it'll be another winner
If you're hoping for a ton of detail, folks, you're probably going to be disappointed. However, we know that a port of Professor Layton and the Curious Village is definitely on the way to mobile.
Originally released on the 3DS in 2007, Professor Layton and the Curious Village is an adventure puzzler where you (Professor Layton) are called upon by the late Baron Reinhold's family to help find the hidden treasure revealed in his will. Together with Luke, your apprentice, what starts off as a simple task turns into a bigger mystery following the death of another Reinhold family member.
Announced in the latest issue of Famitsu magazine, we know only that it'll be a HD version and extra elements will also have been added. To what extent, we'll have to wait and see.
Given the popularity of Level-5's last successful mobile dance with Layton's Mystery Journey, I've got high hopes for another Layton mobile puzzler. In its iOS review we said, "From the quality of the animations, the quality of the audio, the quality of the performance, and the quality of its puzzles, it's a joy for lovers of the genre."
