A new Japanese animated television series based on the popular ‘Professor Layton’ video game franchise is reportedly in the works. Set to debut in 2018, the show will initially run for a total of 26 episodes and is part of a variety of new content planned for the franchise.
According to the September issue of License Global magazine, developer Level-5 is hard at work on several ‘Professor Layton’ additions, including “animated products” and a new game that is slated for release in late summer 2018.
‘Professor Layton’ originally began as a puzzle adventure game for the Nintendo DS. The story follows a renowned archaeologist/professor who travels to various locations with his sidekick to solve a group of mysteries. Gameplay revolves around a series of puzzles given by the citizens of towns that the main characters visit. The series has proven to be so popular that it has spawned five sequels, a crossover game with Phoenix Wright, a mobile game, and an animated movie (‘Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva‘).
