Makes sense! Especially seeing how Layton designer Akihiro Hino is penning the story for new Gundam series, Gundam Age. His studio, Level-5, is also working on a new Gundam RPG for unspecified hardware.
Gundam Age will encompass a new anime series, toys, plastic models, a plastic figure based in-store game, and a card-based arcade game as well as the above mentioned Level-5 title. (Photos in the PDF below.)
Besides Professor Layton, Level-5 created the White Knight Chronicles series and developed Dragon Quest IX for Square Enix.
