UPDATE: First scans here - Looks like this is the real deal as well, and early info from the Famitsu translation show that this is the beginning of a new trilogy that chronicles how the duo got their start.
Once again, the same deal as below. I don’t want to go and call this confirmed until I see the magazine pics in question. I thought the Layton series was going to be over with the third title? Professor Layton and the Devil’s Flute would be the fourth entry in the series…all while North America and Europe have only gotten one game so far.
