Professor Layton and the Curious Village on the DS has only been out in North America for a day, and already downloadable content for the title is available through the DS's Wi-Fi Connection service. Using the game's Wi-Fi service, players can download the first of many extra ...

Game | Life is reporting that the last page of the instruction manual for Professor Layton and the Curious Village, a game we're sure will hit American shores with the force of a malnourished hummingbird, reveals that the sequel (which is already available in Japan) will eventually head to the stat...

It saddens us to say that none of us are wealthy people. If we were, we'd fund the purchase of a ludicrously expensive high-end color printer, which we would then use to print this fantastic promotional poster for Professor Layton and the Curious Village. We'd laminate it, pin it proudly to our wall...

For the last few months, we've had no choice but to pore over screens and scans of Professor Layton and the Curious Village that contain nothing but indecipherable kanji. But no longer! This morning, Nintendo issued the first batch of English language screenshots from Level 5's professorial puzzler....

This trailer shows the good professor put on his puzzle-solving hat as he cracks the case in Professor Layton and the Devil's Box. Frankly, we don't care much about which puzzle the man is solving (some stuff with tiles and keys), but care a great deal as to where it's being solved. Like, right her...

Will our shameless pimping of all things Professor Layton ever stop? Never! Or at least, not until we get our western mitts on all of the games that make up Level-5's adventure game trilogy. Until that happy day arrives, we shall continue to bounce around in eager anticipation like demented chil...

While we wait (im)patiently for the first of the Professor Layton trilogy, the third and final installment was just announced in Japan. Professor Layton and the Final Time Travel, which has no firm release date yet, will be set in a dark, futuristic London, and will feature time traveling. With a ...

We haven't even gotten the first Professor Layton adventure yet, and we're already seeing screens of the sequel. Professor Layton and the Devil's Box looks much like the first game, which is to say, gorgeously lush. The game's scope is expanded from that of its predecessor: the professor and his stu...

... but all good things must come to an end, eh? It's always nice to wallow in the explosion of news that surrounds a trade show, and even the diminished E3 was no exception. Sure, for Nintendo fans, at least on the DS side, things started out a little slowly, but once the media hit, we no longer ...

Now, this is being reported as a rumor, but the mere mention of Level-5's Professor Layton trilogy gets us too excited for words. Since this game was first revealed, with its beautiful character designs and logic puzzles, we've been hoping against hope for an English translation, and Electronic Gami...

Just when we thought we had settled the issue of Professor Layton and the Townlike Area of Disputed Size (aka the 'Mysterious Village'), 1UP's preview of the second installment in the trilogy raises questions about the upcoming game's translated title. Thus far we've seen it written Professor Layton...

They don't believe in wasting time over there at Level-5. The first game was just released in Japan, and not only do we have a sequel in the works for Professor Layton, but we're already seeing more images from the game. Yes, more -- we already saw a few when the sequel was announced! We expect Pro...

Now we feel justified for all those times we were jumping up and down over new details on Professor Layton and the Mysterious Town (that may be a Village). Chris Kohler had nothing but love for this import over at Game|Life; he's praised everything from the animation to the story to the game's logic...

It looks like we were totally justified in going nuts for Professor Layton and the Mysterious Village. The game is barely out of the gate in Japan and Level-5 has already announced a second installment in what will apparently be a trilogy. The upcoming sequel, tentatively titled Professor Layton an...
