Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva, the anime film based on the successful DS series, is soon to release in the US.

Anime Your Way reports Viz Media will bring the film to the the US on DVD later this year.

The 2009 anime feature was localised and released in the UK last year, but failed to reach the US.

The Professor Layton games have met with near-universal approval, and surprisingly, so has the film; a sequel is on the way.
