Professor Layton comes to Nintendo DS


4th September 2008 - Prepare to step into a mysterious and eccentric world when Professor Layton and the Curious Village arrives on Nintendo DS 7th November 2008. With more than 130 logical- and lateral-thinking conundrums immersed in an engrossing and compelling storyline - and additional puzzles available every week via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection - players of all ages everywhere will be challenged to the limit as they search to unravel the hidden secrets of the village St. Mystere!

As the quirky and intriguing Professor Layton and his sidekick, Luke, players must successfully decipher the numerous taxing puzzles that face them to reveal events and strands of the ever-mysterious storyline. Only when everything has been discovered, all mysteries resolved and the ultimate item – the Golden Apple – recovered will the player have solved the mystery surrounding St. Mystere.

Throughout the game and its fully animated cut scenes, Professor Layton and Luke will meet the curious townsfolk of St. Mystere who will try to confuse them with riddles and conundrums to hinder their path. Using the Touch Screen, players must show off their detective skills to uncover as much information as possible from conversations and the environment around them. Be warned though, a few characters have hidden agendas of their own and will do everything in their power to prevent you from uncovering the truth.

In addition to overcoming the constant puzzles within the main storyline, there are numerous side missions to keep the mind at full-throttle. Completed puzzles may unearth strange items, like parts of machinery, furniture and scraps of paintings, which are used in more mind bending and curious mini-games.

Even when the challenge is over and the mysteries unravelled, Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection keeps you gripped as new riddles will be available to download on a weekly basis.

Professor Layton and the Curious Village launches on Nintendo DS across Europe on 7th November 2008.
