Famitsu has some new Professor Layton screens up for The Devil’s Flute or Flute of Malevolent Destiny as it’s likely to be called when it leaves Japan – where it’s known as The Specter’s Flute.
OK, we’re confused now.
Moving right along, it’s the fourth Professor Layton game, and is the start of a new trilogy with The Devil’s Flute taking place three years before The Curious Village.
The screens are through the link above, and all looking at each one does is make us wonder when the hell The Last Time Travel will be released elsewhere.
Japan has had the third game in the series since 2008, and it’s high time it was shared with us.

Level-5 has revealed during its Vision Conference that Professor Layton and the Devil’s Flute will contain a bonus game created by Brownie Brown called London Life.
The fourth game in the series is set to be released in Japan on November 26, and the extra bit of fun is more RPG based, and revolves around making people happy.
It was announced for the cell-phone download service ROID, but surely Level-5 will reveal soon that it’s for the DS version as well. Hopefully at least by the time it leaves Japan anyway.
Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box landed on US shores yesterday.

According to the latest issue of Famitsu, not only is the Professor Layton and the Eternal Songstress movie scheduled for a 2010 release in Japan, but Level-5 will be releasing a new Layton DS trilogy to go along with it.
The first offering, Professor Layton and the Devil’s Flute, is set three years before the Curious Village took place.
Our hero is in a strange town besieged by a giant who goes bonkers whenever a mysterious flute is played. Layton’s trusty sidekick Luke is present, as well as a new female pal named Remi Altava.
“The series wrapped up its trilogy with Professor Layton and the Last Time Travel, so there was a bit of resistance to making yet another new title,” Level-5′s Akihiro Hino told Famitsu.
“However, we received word from a lot of gamers during development asking if this was really the end, and that was all the inspiration we needed to create a new trilogy, a ‘second season’ of Layton.”
“With this trilogy, we’ve got puzzles and tricks that go across all three games”, he added. “I think each individual game is going to take a lot more time to complete than before. We’re challenging ourselves here because we don’t want people to think it’s the same thing over again.”
Devil’s Flute is slated for a fall release in Japan, with the Eternal Songstress film continuing where Devil’s Flute leaves off.
Hows that for movie-game interaction?
