All Professor Layton games on Nintendo DS / 3DS

At the time of writing there are 6 Professor Layton games available on Nintendo DS and 3DS. Here is the list of games in release date order:

  • Professor Layton and the Curious Village, DS
  • Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box (US title) / Professor Layton and Pandora’s Box (Europe / UK title), DS
  • Professor Layton and the Unwound Future, DS
  • Professor Layton and the Last Specter, DS
  • Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, 3DS
  • Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy, 3DS

The first 4 titles were released on the Nintendo DS while the last 2 titles were released on the Nintendo 3DS. Because of backwards compatibility the 3DS offers you can play all 6 titles on a current generation Nintendo 3DS (XL).

I would advise playing the games in the release order because the game mechanics got better over time.

Software engineer by day and gamer by night. I fall into the group of casual core adult gamers and prefer video games over TV. I tend to play almost exclusively on PC but have a 3DS for offline situations like holidays. Being an adult gamer means that I have only limited time for video games, around 5-10 hours per week. I mostly enjoy playing short narrative or puzzle games from independent developers but will occasionally pick up a narrative heavy game from a big publisher. I enjoy talking about the Indie gems I played and once a month I will dive deep into one video game related topic with an essay.
