Archaeologist and puzzle-solver Professor Layton is set to return in an all-new adventure that will take players deeper into the professor's past than ever before: Professor Layton And The Miracle Mask.

Featuring 150 brand new brainteasers and a new set of minigames courtesy of the Professor's Trunk, Professor Layton And The Miracle Mask also boasts 365 additional Daily Puzzles distributed via the Nintendo Network - one puzzle a day for a whole year from the day of the game's launch.

The fifth game in the series sees you pick up with Layton, Luke and Emmy some time after the events of Professor Layton and the Spectre's Call. The intrepid trio is called upon to stop the mysterious Masked Gentleman from terrorising the city of Monte d'Or with magically dark miracles, such as turning citizens to stone. The professor suspects the involvement of the Mask of Chaos, a mask rumoured to bestow great power upon whoever wears it. The revelation takes Layton back to a dark episode of his past, which may hold the solution to the problems of the present. These flashbacks introduce Layton's parents and childhood friend Randall, and allow you to play as the 17 year-old Layton, who pays a high price for discovering his passion for archaeology...

While being presented in the charming hand-drawn style of previous games in the series, Professor Layton And The Miracle Mask on the Nintendo 3DS system uses 3D animations and character models to bring depth to the visuals. The game also features a brand new game mode that sees the young Professor Layton explore ancient ruins and requires you to help him reach the exits of a series of puzzling chambers while avoiding a variety of obstacles and mummy enemies.

There are also three new minigames available from the Professor's Trunk. The Toy Robot challenges you to control a wind-up toy robot that always moves three steps at a time. Navigating a series of contraptions along the way, can you guide it to the goal safely? The second addition is One-Stop Shop where your skills of stocking shelves in an appealing way are put to the test - you'll only succeed if you manage to entice customers to buy everything off the shelves in one go. Finally, in Rabbit Show, you'll help Luke train a circus rabbit that has been deemed unfit to perform by its angry ringmaster. Chat with and train the rabbit to teach it new tricks and perform in plays that will persuade its master to accept it back into the circus.
  • Please Note: 3DS titles are not compatible with standard Nintendo DS consoles
  • Puzzles are the key: Unravelling the mystery of Misthallery in this thrilling prequel to Professor Layton and the Curious Village, and finding the truth behind this spectral saga won't be easy. You'll need to explore and investigate the setting, interview its people and (most importantly) solve any puzzles you encounter. Some conundrums will come from the townsfolk and some will be hidden around town - it's up to you to find them, because it's only by solving brainteasers that you will crack this case.
  • Plentiful Picarats: Every puzzle you solve is worth a number of picarats, with greater amounts for trickier puzzles. If you give an incorrect answer, the number of picarats you'll receive may decrease - so think carefully before you put forth your answer.
  • Helpful hint coins: Thankfully, you will find hint coins all over the place - simply search the Touch Screen with your stylus and they could spring out of anywhere! These handy tokens can be cashed in to purchase puzzle hints, and in a nifty turn of events, using them doesn't reduce the amount of picarats you will earn.
  • Keats the Cat: Should a puzzle definitively discombobulate you, you can always step away with grace and come back to it later. Any puzzles you haven't completed, or sneaky hidden ones you didn't find at first, will be kept in waiting for you with Keats the cat (assuming you can find his current basking spot around town) since our usual great puzzle-hoarder Granny Riddleton has pushed off for a well deserved holiday.
  • Download puzzles: Of course, on top of the intriguing and extensive main story, there's also the opportunity to download weekly puzzles via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection!

Disappointed that Ninetendo have only done the new Professor Layton game in the 3DS format. Not everybody can afford to upgrade or buy the new 3DS console.

 Fanstastic game, well worth the hardware update!

Simply if you are a fan of Layton this just provides another great puzzle game with a great story, splendid visuals and fantastic soundtrack! People who complain about this being on the 3DS and not on DS, THEY COULDN'T put this game on a DS simply because the visusal are all remade and quite frankly it is worth it. GET IT! One of the best games on the 3DS.

 really good

this is really good game i find it better than the others and it goes back to layton's past as a teenager which is cool.great puzzles and story line,the only thing i will say i don't see the point it being on 3d

 Worthy entry in the Layton series

Like the four games that came before it, this is a great Layton game, and a great puzzle adventure game in general. My only gripe is that it only ever uses the touch screen; Minigames like the bicycle chase at the very start of the game would be way more comfortable to control, and faster, with the use of the D-pad or analog pad. Aside from that, it's all here, hint coins, a quirky laytonesque story, and tons of puzzles, ranging from "pfft I could do this in my sleep" to "I want to ferociously tear apart the cartridge with my teeth"

8/10 would play again

 Very disapointed customer

This should have been produced in all DS formats. I have bought all of the previous editions and thoroughly enjoyed them and this is the first that I have not been able to buy. How blind of Nintendo to do this. They must have lost a great deal of business through this and in this day and age I would have thought it was wise to cater to all people. Did they think that the owner of older DSi's would blindly go out and buy? Well they were wrong.
