Japanese purchasers have their February 26 choice limited to ten titles, but one of them is the next Professor Layton game, Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle.
The Nintendo 3DS succeeds the best-selling 3D, adding a 3D-effect screen (no special 3D glasses required) along with a Circle Pad, three cameras, motion-tracking technology, and wi-fi connectivity.
