In more news from E3 2009, Nintendo confirmed a US release date of August 24, 2009, for Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box, the second game in this popular series for the DS. (Amazon.com briefly, and apparently inadvertently, listed the game with this date several weeks ago before removing it.)
A new mystery is afoot! 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 game features over 150 new brain teasers, riddles, and logic puzzles. Players with a Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection will also have access to 33 additional puzzles, to be made available one per week after the game launches.
The first game in the series, Professor Layton and the Curious Village, was recently seen in a commercial featuring Lisa Kudrow.
