It has been nine years since the last time anyone saw Hershel Layton, the eponymous hero of Level-5’s Professor Layton series. That was in Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney on Nintendo 3Ds. The last time Layton featured in his own series it was in Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy (also in 2014). There have been Layton games since, but none of them have featured the beloved professor. Now, Level-5 has revealed that Hershel is finally back in the new game Professor Layton and the New World of Steam. Here’s a brief-yet-tantalizing teaser:

So, what exactly is The New World of Steam? At the moment it’s a total mystery, with no word on story details nor when the game will launch. With series “Puzzle Master” Akira Tago sadly passed away as of 2016, it’s also uncertain what form the series’ signature puzzles will take. All that is known is that Layton will be tackling new puzzles in a new setting. Will Luke return, as well? What will the gameplay be like? Once we know, you will, too!
