President of Level-5, Akihiro Hino, announced that our favorite video game detective will make his way to mobile devices in only a few months. This summer, Professor Layton will come to iOS and Android in the form of Layton 7. So far, we know players will use cards and fortune-telling to aid them in their journey to uncovering the truth about a mysterious vampire.
The Professor Layton series has been exclusive to Nintendo consoles since the first game arrived in 2007. Now that it’s coming to mobile devices, perhaps this will open up a more possibilities for the recent DeNA partnership. While there was no mention of Layton 7 coming to the 3DS, it could be a sneak peek at what’s to come.
