Level-5 seems to be expanding their Professor Layton video Game franchise further to other media. This is because License Global Magazine’s September 2017 edition has reported that the gaming company is planning a “variety of content” to add to the ever-growing franchise. This may also include a TV series as reported by Total Licensing Magazine.
The Total Licensing Magazine article stated that this new series will have 26 episodes. They also revealed that it will premiere sometime in 2018.
As for License Global magazine’s report, they noted that a new Layton title will be coming in late summer 2018. However, the report didn’t expand on what this new title is. This might mean that this new title might be a game or the TV series which Total Licensing magazine was talking about.
The games follow Professor Hershel Layton and his apprentice Luke as they solve various mysteries. The game has an English language version, and also has its own anime film. Titled “Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva”, the film opened in Japan back in 2009.
