Layton's first game goes platinum in Japan

We know the Layton series is a moneymaker -- the first four DS games have shipped over 11 million units globally. Nonetheless, every time one of the games hits a milestone, I feel like throwing a party. Just this morning, Lev...

I haven't picked up 3DS game Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask yet, but some of my friends have and they're all loving it. I was wondering if it would be the top-selling title, and now Famitsu has confirmed that...

Professor Layton and the Mask of the Miracle Afro

Have you seen seen Layton's hair in his debut 3DS title, Professor Layton and the Mask of the Miracle? He's totally got an afro now, and I think it's awesome. Reportedly, part of the game takes place in the present day, and ...

Review: Professor Layton and the Unwound Future photo
Review: Professor Layton and the Unwound Future
by Jonathan Ross

Professor Layton and his apprentice Luke have returned for their third DS game, and as those who have played the previous games probably expected, it's really good. Professor Layton and the Unwound Future takes the formula that's worked so well for the past two games and pretty much leaves it untouched. Aside from a few new minigames, the new Super Hint option, and (obviously) the story, nothing has really changed from any of the previous Layton games.

I think that's a good thing.

Layton's Unwound Future now unwinds on September 12 photo
Layton's Unwound Future now unwinds on September 12
by Nick Chester

You love him, I love him -- the good Professor Layton will be making his return to Nintendo's handheld on September 12 with Professor Layton and the Unwound Future.

Puzzled as to why this is news, considering a release date for the title had previously been announced? No need to a hint coin, I'll just tell you -- the game was previously scheduled for a September 20 release. Professor Layton and the Unwound Future joins Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days in getting its released pushed up a week. What a pair!

Professor Layton and the Unwound Future
features 165 new puzzles, at least half of which I won't be able to solve and will give up on.

Professor Layton takes to the ice

This ought to brighten your day a bit. It's Professor Layton, master mystery mister, cavorting arou nd on an ice rink. Marvel as he twirls, spins and looks alternately quizzical and smug. I swear, is there nothing that man in the stovepipe can't do? Next, we're going to see him pulling 720° spins on a halfpipe somewhere. Or wrestling bears. Professor Layton - ON ICE!

So baller: Professor Layton Revoltech coming in March

Ok, let's be perfectly honest here: this Professor Layton Revoltech figure is on-fire hot. If I had a saltier lexicon, one surely unbefitting of a gentleman like Professor Layton, I'd say it was sh*thot. At the very least, I ...
