During the Level-5 Vision 2023 II broadcast, the developer shared new information for the upcoming Professor Layton and the New World of Steam. Alongside finally unveiling real-time gameplay footage and cutscenes, an updated release window of 2025.
Additionally, it’s stated that all of the main story puzzles are done and that development is progressing smoothly.
Puzzle #17, The Enigmatic Entrance, was showcased throughout the stream.
Professor Layton and the New World of Steam occurs one year after apprentice Luke Triton leaves for America (Unwound Future), though he later invites Layton to a place called Steam Bison within the country. Steam engine technology here has greatly surpassed London’s capabilities, but Luke informs Layton that a bizarre incident has taken place. When players solve puzzles throughout the game, it’s implied that the city will develop as a result of their actions.
While Layton is anonymous in America, Luke has solved various cases in the town, becoming known as Detective Luke. Yo Oizumi will return as Layton, and Mio Imada will be Luke’s new voice. The puzzles will be designed by QuizKnock. They have developed content for all sorts of media and will likely bring a unique experience to the table.
