It seems that Mystery Room has returned and been rebranded as a Professor Layton game starring his son as an investigator for Scotland Yard.

It has also moved platforms from DS to iOS.

Came in expecting Professor Layton platformer, instead got Phoenix Wright in 3D.

Whoa wait a minute, Layton has a son?! When did this happen?

This shit looks amazing. It's like a Phoenix Wright, Layton, Ghost Trick, Hotel Dusk-hybrid with amazing jazz music.

I want this. So bad.

The girl actually isn't a Layton.

The title kind of implies he has a second son though.

Maybe it's the start of a series where we'll see more Laytons later.

Its kind of funny because I remember the original protagonist of Mystery Room looking almost exactly like young Layton.

I feel like the new art and characters are kinda a downgrade. I dunno, it just seems a little less charming?

Do we know if Koshiro is still doing the soundtrack?

Looks great, but I'm not keen on this being attached to the Layton franchise in anyway, especially since the artstyle is so different.

Yeah, I'm confused. The title is Layton Brothers, but the game stars Layton's (seemingly) only son? Wat.

I reposted a list of a bunch of 3DS games including pictures in some sort of 3DS vs. Vita thread and that wasn't a great way to continue the discussion according to the mods and they're right about that. So write down 'List War without Context' in the unwritten rules of GAF book.
