US and EU dates for 'Layton and the Last Specter'
Wednesday 31 August 2011
Fourth in the popular Nintendo DS series,
Professor Layton and the Last Specter will arrive in North America on October 17 and European regions November 21 following a successful Japanese debut in November of 2009.
The game is in fact a prequel to Layton's encounters with the Curious Village, Diabolical Box, and Unwound Future.
Just like others in the series, the Last Specter has a different name in Japan and Europe. Japanese players know it as Professor Layton and the Devil's Flute, which will become Spectre's Call in Europe, Australasia and South Africa.
As well as the usual Layton investigations, Last Specter includes a cute retro-style role-playing game called Professor Layton's London Life.
This bonus feature is no half-baked mini-game, clocking in at 100 hours long; some see it as a precursor to a fully fledged Fantasy Life that's currently in development.
Unfortunately, it looks like London Life won't make it into the European edition, though the region-free Nintendo DS can happily play the North American version for those willing to import.
