It has been a long and anxious wait for Professor Layton fans in the UK, but at last a scheduled UK release date for the fourth Professor Layton game, Professor Layton and the Spectre's Call, (AKA the last specter/specter's flute) has finally emerged.
According to the Play.com website, Professor Layton and the Spectre's Call should be heading to UK stores on the 25th November 2011.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Professor Layton series, Professor Layton and the Spectre's Call is a prequel to the other games in the series, and tells the story of how Professor Layton came to meet his young apprentice, Luke Triton.
In this adventure, the pair seek to uncover the secret of the 'Spectre's Flute', an ancient artifact that is used to summon a Spectre who, it is said, helps to protect a local village from harm...
The game contains many familiar faces from previous Professor Layton games, such as Granny Riddleton, and also introduces a few new characters into the mix, including Professor Layton's new assistant, Emmy Altava.
Professor Layton and the Spectre's Call is exclusive to the Nintendo DS and DSi, but will also provide an interesting interlude before the Professor and Luke make their debut on the 3DS in the fifth game of the series, Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle next year.
Mini Gamers is very pleased that the official UK release date has been announced. We are seriously keeping our fingers crossed that the date will not be changed between now and November. Remember to check in with the Mini Gamers blogsite for more news on this game as it develops.
