Professor Layton overall has been a successful title in all regions. However the localization of the sequels has been a bit on the slow side , North Americans and Europeans are just getting their hands on the second entry in the series. Japan however is on the fourth entry, Professor Layton and the Flute of Malevolent Destiny, which is launching later this year in Japan.
During level 5’s recent keynote they announced a bonus game that is being put into the fourth entry, London Life. London Life is a RPG where you wander around London attempting to make people happy by finishing their quests. Despite being a bonus game, Level 5 said that it contains 100 hours worth of content. To top it all off the developer of the London Life is Brownie Brown, the team behind Mother 3. There is no telling when or if the fourth game will ever get localized. But if the DS lives a long enough life and the series continues to sell well, it’s bound to make it over here at some point. Screen shots after the jump.
