Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box Ships for DS

The dog days of summer are a great time to relax with a gripping mystery. Better yet, why not help solve one? Today’s launch of Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box for the Nintendo DS presents players with more than 150 new brain-teasing riddles and puzzles to solve as they help Professor Layton and his apprentice, Luke, uncover the mystery surrounding the Elysian Box, which is said to be deadly to all who open it. Game Freaks 365 previewed the game at this year’s E3.

Following in the footprints of the previous title in the series, Professor Layton and the Curious Village, Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box includes even more exciting puzzles, voice acting and animated scenes for players to enjoy as they make their way through a maze of clues and intrigue.
