The Layton Series Twitter account has unveiled today that the third instalment of the popular puzzle adventure series, Professor Layton and the Unwound Future – or Lost Future depending on where you live – will be heading for iOS on 13th July where it will now be playable in HD.
The game starts with Professor Layton receiving a letter from his assistant Luke. It seems a little absurd at first until Layton remembers a recent accident in London involving a time machine exploding.
From there Layton begins his investigation to discover what exactly is going on. That means exploring and solving several puzzles to progress the story further and uncover more of the mystery. These conundrums and minigames will all make use of ‘intuitive touch controls’. Of course, there will also be several characters you’ll also meet throughout the course of the story to chat with too.
Professor Layton and the Lost Future initially launched for the Nintendo DS in 2008 for Japan and 2010 in the rest of the world. Much like a majority of the Layton titles, it was very well received, including by us. Damien McFerran reviewed it for us back in 2010, giving it a Gold rating.
Professor Layton and the Lost Future/Unwound Future will be available on the App Store on 13th July. There’s no word on price just yet but we’ll be sure to keep you updated when we learn more.
