Professor Layton And The New World Of Steam Announced For Switch

Professor Layton is making a comeback in a new adventure for Switch. Called Professor Layton and the New World of Steam, the next chapter in his saga will arrive at a yet-to-be-specified date.

A brief teaser trailer shows the professor trotting through an industrial backdrop. We don’t know what mystery he’ll unravel or which allies will lend a hand, but it’s nice to see the good gentleman back. 

Professor Layton’s last title to star him was 2014’s The Azaran Legacy. In 2017, a spin-off starring Layton’s daughter called Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy was released for 3DS and was ported to Switch in 2019.
