Professor Herschel Layton will reprise his role in Professor Layton and the New World of Steam on Nintendo Switch, with a new steampunk-themed world and many puzzles.
During the February 2023 Nintendo Direct, Nintendo released the surprise announcement and shown a brief trailer for the new Level-5 game. It's great to see the studio returning to the Western market after some of its international branches closed.
In the Direct, Nintendo kept the game's features close to its chest, and the game's official store page says you'll "solve epic riddles as you progress through the story of this puzzle/fantasy adventure" as Professor Layton and Luke.
This is the seventh entry into the Professor Layton series to focus on the main character – not including the Ace Attorney crossover – and the first title on Nintendo Switch.
The release date for Professor Layton and the New World of Steam has been rumored.
We do not know when the release date for Professor Layton and the New World of Steam will occur, so we must hold off for now for further information. The Direct focused on titles for the first half of 2023, so there's a possibility we'll receive the game sooner rather than later!
Professor Layton and the New World of Steam are all we know right now, so why not grab some goodies with these Grand Piece Online codes, Build A Boat for Treasure codes, and Your Strange Adventure codes to keep you going in the meantime?
