Professor Layton Finds His Way Into The Nintendo DownloadBy: Zach Walton - February 27, 2014
For the past few weeks, the Nintendo Download has been a bit on the skimpy side. That’s not going to change this week as Nintendo only has one major 3DS release and some virtual console titles.
The only major release this week is Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy on February 28. This is the final Layton game in the 3DS trilogy and wraps up the story that began with Professor Layton and the The Last Specter. Here’s the official synopsis provided by Nintendo:
The Professor Layton series couples brilliant puzzle games with a fascinating story to create a riveting formula that has provided great entertainment for mystery fans and puzzle-solving gurus alike. In Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy, journey across the globe aboard the airship Bostonius while solving mind-bending brainteasers themed to their environments. Can you help Professor Layton and his assistants solve the greatest puzzle mankind has ever faced and uncover the mystery surrounding the ancient Azran civilization?
During the last Nintendo Direct, Nintendo unveiled the latest trailer for the title that focuses on Layton’s assistant Emmy Altava:
On the virtual console, NES classic Renegade is the only release this week. The beat-em-up will be available on both the Wii U and 3DS virtual consoles. Here’s some gameplay footage courtesy of NESGuide:
We can only hope that next week’s Nintendo Download will have a bit more meat on it, but that’s not looking likely.
