Puzzle master Professor Layton and his apprentice, Luke, have stumbled upon another
mystery. It’s up to them to navigate their way through numerous puzzles to determine who –
or what – caused the death of Professor Layton’s mentor, Dr. Schrader. Was it the
mysterious Elysian Box, rumored to kill all who open it? Professor Layton and Luke find a
clue that begins their adventure: a train ticket for the Molentary Express.

  • The new game includes a significantly greater amount of voice work and animated movie scenes compared to the original.

I've just finished the game, very sweet,the story is maybe a bit weird but I love the characters and atmosphere.

That kind of games is just perfect for the DS imo. Exactly what I'm looking for with a handeld.

@Majin, It's because people know who Professor Layton is now and they like the games. :) I'm glad it took off in the U.S. though. Too many games that should have taken off that seem to be ignored.

It's tracking better than the previous one in both America and Others actually. If legs can hold it up, it may well sell even better than the first one did!
