Apparently so, because the folks who made Mother 3 (Earthbound series) have made a Professor Layton role-playing game to be released as part of the upcoming Professor Layton and the Last Specter. That’s right, a whole RPG game within a game. It will be called Professor Layton’s London Life, and consider this the best freebie ever, because the game is said to offer up to over 100 hours of gameplay.
Professor Layton and the Last Specter is scheduled to be released on October 17th in the US, and the main game will still be the same Layton we all know and love. The addition of this RPG will leave the main game untouched, so don’t worry, Layton purists.
Unfortunately, London Life will not be part of the European version of the Last Specter. The US version of the RPG will be available the moment you boot up the game.
