Bittersweet news for Professor Layton fans this morning: the next game starring the puzzle-solving academic, coming to 3DS handhelds in 2013, will also be his final adventure. The news was confirmed by Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino during the morning's Nintendo Direct streaming video press conference (via Andriasang).
The game's transliterated Japanese title is Professor Layton Choubunmei to A no Isan, which very roughly becomes "A heritage of civilization and ultra Professor Layton" in English. Expect a more Americanized title if/when there's a U.S. release, though no release plans outside of Japan were revealed during the presentation. There was, however, some footage shown and you can check it out in the video above. Look for the goods at right around the 30-second mark.
