More Professor Layton movie information for European release revealed
Some information about the release of the new Professor Layton movie, Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva, in Europe has been revealed.
As seen in the picture above, the movie will be available in boxset form with three discs – a regular DVD, a blu-ray disc, and a bonus disc with special features. The book with Layton’s face on it is a booklet that comes in the box, containing storyboards of the film.
The box itself looks very similar to that of a European Professor Layton game, with a royal look, Layton and Luke on the box and the Professor Layton symbol, Layton’s hat. Pulling out the insides of the box reveals four characters in the film: Professor Layton, the main protagonist of the film, an intelligent man who solves many mysteries, a masked man who seems to be the antagonist of the film, Luke, Layton’s child assistant, and Remi Altava, another assistant of Layton’s.
Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva is to be released on October 4th in Europe in four formats: regular DVD, blu-ray edition, a DVD collector’s edition and the special DVD + Blu-ray combo edition shown here. In the film, Layton and Luke are invited to an opera house by one of Layton’s old friends, who is performing there. However, mysterious events are going on, such as a masked man, links to missing girls in London which Layton’s assistant Remi is trying to uncover, and rumours of a power to give anyone eternal life. The film recieved good reviews in Japan and has been given a sequel which is in development currently. The film is set after Professor Layton and the Specter’s Flute, the first game in the second trilogy, which is set before Professor Layton and the Curious Village. The next Layton game, Professor Layton and the Unwound Future, is to be released this year in Europe, while Japan have already gotten that game and The Specter’s Flute, and are ready to get the next game, Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracles, which is to be released on 3DS.
