Wired’s Game|Life has word that a sequel to the amazingly solid, and sublimely styled Professor Layton and the Mysterious Town is coming to Japan this November — a few weeks short of the release date for the original here in the States. The sequel — Professor Layton and the Devil’s Box — is almost certainly not a hilariously pornographic alternate title for the disappointing Bedazzled remake starring Elizabeth Hurley, but based on the prior title in the series and the other work of Level 5 — the series’ creators — it should at the very least be a clever, original game worthy of the attentions of anyone considered a fan of the RPG genre, the Adventure genre, or anything vomitted from the corpulent-yet-kawaii bosom of Mother Japan.

Thankfully, the title should be shown off at the upcoming TGS, so we’ll try to get a look at it there.
