Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy is an engaging puzzle adventure game that concludes the Professor Layton series, offering a mix of challenging puzzles and a story that spans across the globe.


“Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy” is a puzzle game developed by Level-5 for the Nintendo 3DS. It is the sixth entry in the Professor Layton series and forms the third and final part of the prequel trilogy of games. The game was released in early to late 2013 in all territories except North America, where it was released on February 28 of the following year.

The game begins one year after the events of the previous entry, “Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask”. Professor Layton, Luke, and Emmy are invited by Professor Desmond Sycamore, an eminent archaeologist, who claims to have discovered a so-called living “mummy”. The trio boards the airship Bostonius, piloted by Raymond, Sycamore’s butler, and rendezvous with Sycamore in the city of Froenborg.

In Froenborg, they help Sycamore free Aurora, a girl trapped in ice since ancient times with no memory of her past. However, Aurora is kidnapped by Targent’s leader Leon Bronev. With Sycamore’s help, Layton and Luke rescue Aurora from Targent’s airship and escort her to some Azran ruins.

At the ruins, Aurora reveals the location of five Azran eggs, scattered around the world, which are necessary to unlock the Azran Legacy. Layton and the others return to London to prepare for their journey in search of the eggs. During their preparations, they help the Scotland Yard solve the mystery of several archaeological artifacts stolen from a local museum and expose Detective Inspector Leonard Bloom as a mole from Targent.

Once their preparations are over, the group travels around the globe and retrieves the eggs, with Aurora recovering part of her memories with each artifact secured. During their travels, the group helps a jungle chief regain his sense of humor, learns of a popular island tradition that one egg inspired, clears up a misunderstanding about a wolf attacking a desert, stops a hillside from “sacrificing” women to prevent whirlwinds, and cures people in a walled city of a sleeping illness.

After collecting all the eggs, Aurora discovers that one of them was previously stolen by Targent and replaced with a fake. The game concludes with the group’s efforts to recover the last egg and unlock the Azran Legacy.

“Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy” is a thrilling adventure that takes players on a journey around the world, solving puzzles and uncovering the secrets of an ancient civilization. The game’s captivating storyline, engaging gameplay, and stunning visuals make it a must-play for any fan of the Professor Layton series.
