Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask

Developer: Level-5

Platforms: Nintendo 3DS

Release Date: October 28, 2012

Who doesn't love a good mystery? On the Nintendo DS, the Professor Layton games introduced us to deduction and puzzle solving in a story-driven format that we just hadn't seen in games before and its debut on the 3DS is just as pleasant.

With fantastic animated sequences and clever challenges that'll make you feel like a genius when you complete them, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask is the best hybrid of investigation and narrative on Nintendo's handheld.
