It's time to say goodbye to Level-5's Professor Layton. The sixth game in the franchise, Layton Kyouju to Choubunmei A no Isan, is being described as the top hat wearing detective's final adventure. Coming to the 3DS, this story takes place one year after Miracle Mask (which releases in the US in October). According to Andriasang, this adventure centers around the discovery of a living mummy.

The franchise has sold over 13 million copies over five games, making it incredibly unlikely Level-5 will put the series to rest. The company's English language Facebook page confirms that this will be the last adventure for Hershel Layton, but leaves open the possibility of other games in the franchise. "Hold on to your top hats... The sixth installment and final adventure of Professor Hershel Layton was announced in Japan last night!"

Here's a peek at the upcoming game:

      There's a iOS Layton game that was revealed a while ago but it had to do with two young Layton Brothers. I have no idea if they're supposed to be his kids or if he has a brother but Level 5 will continue to make games in the Layton franchise even if Hershel isn't the star. Which is fine with me because Unwound Future was a great stopping point for his personal story. That ending had me in tears.

      The last thing we need is for them to pull an AA4: Apollo Justice and make him a washed up hobo who was involved in a scandal that ruined his career and reputation.
