Professor Layton spinoff headed to iOS

Layton Brothers: Mystery RoomBad news for Nintendo. It looks like its exclusivity to have Professor Layton all to itself on its Nintendo DS platform has ended. Level-5 (developers of the Layton games) has announced that it will be releasing a new game called Layton Brothers: Mystery Room for iOS devices. In case you weren’t familiar with the Professor Layton franchise, this previously exclusive to Nintendo series chronicles the adventures of Professor Layton and his young companion, Luke, as they go around solving mysteries in the form of brain teasers and puzzles.

It is one of the most successful series for the DS both critically and commercially, so to see it made available on other platforms could be a huge blow to Nintendo. But seeing how the games on the Nintendo DS were controlled using the touchscreen, a porting of the franchise seemed inevitable. The spinoff will be focused on Professor Layton’s own son, Alphendi, and a rookie cop, Lucy Creila.

Not much was revealed about the game, but judging by how all the previous Layton games were: expect a lot of mysteries to unravel and plot twists to keep things going. No word on a release date but you can check out the Japanese trailer of the game:
