Professor Layton and the Curious Village is coming to iOS devices.
According to a tweet by the official iOS App Store Twitter account, the popular puzzle game for the Nintendo DS is being ported over to mobile devices. It says little, but concludes with the instruction to "stay tuned for more info."
Originally released on the Nintendo DS in 2007/2008, the game follows the efforts of Professor Hershel Layton and his young apprentice, Luke Triton. The duo is tasked with investigating the village of St. Mystere regarding a mysterious heirloom known as the Golden Apple. The game features a wide variety of puzzle and brain teasers that the player would solve using the DS touch screen.
The app appears to already be available in Japan, priced at 1,200 yen (about $10 USD). The game is played in vertical mode, emulating the dual screen nature of the DS. The Japanese website for the mobile game claims an "EXHD for Smartphones" feature.
The touch screen concept of the DS would translate smoothly onto mobile devices. Though we'll know in due time if that's true for Professor Layton. Stay tuned.
