Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box trailer makes me yearn for a Switch port



Announced just a few days ago, Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box is heading to mobile devices in Japan next month. We now have a trailer to show us how it will look and I'm super jealous. Is it too much to ask Level-5 to port these to the Switch?

In any case, the mobile format is perfect for replicating the dual-screen layout of the DS in portrait mode. It seems like this is a perfect way to experience the Layton series, especially with those snazzy HD cutscenes. Those are, honestly, my favorite part of the whole experience.

Since the first game's mobile port did eventually head West, we likely won't need to wait long for our chance to experience the Professor's second outing on our phones. I'll likely bite the bullet when Unwound Future comes since that is my favorite of the series.
