"No plans" for Professor Layton on Wii

Prof to remain a handheld star, says Level 5 boss

Level 5 CEO Akihiro Hino has told the Official Nintendo Magazine that there are "no plans" to bring the popular Professor Layton games to Wii.


Despite both of the current games - Professor Layton and the Curious Village, and P.L and Pandora's Box - being regulars in the all-format top 20 sales lists, Level 5 has no intention of bringing that success over to Wii.

"This trilogy comes to a conclusion with Professor Layton and the Last Time Travel, but we will be releasing the first title of the new trilogy, Professor Layton and the Flute of Malevolent Destiny in Japan," he told ONM, adding: "We currently have no plans for a Wii release."
