Today, Level-5 unveiled its latest Professor Layton. It's not only the sixth Layton adventure. It's the last one for the game's titular character.

The name of the game is Layton Kyoujyu to Cho Bunmei A no Isan (loosely "Professor Layton and the Legacy of Super Civilization A"). The game takes Layton and his trusty assistant to a snow covered land, where there are puzzles and a mysterious young girl.

The game is slated for release next year.

I'm actually glad it's ending.

I love Professor Layton. Of course I'm somewhat sad that there won't be another one. But look at how many positive comments it has on this page alone. How much love this game gets from fans all over the world.

This akin to Final Fantasy in its early iterations. Before it still had a chance to die on its feet.

I'd much rather this franchise deliver all the best it has, and then rest — maybe to be revived one day in the future — then to just linger on until it has overstayed its welcome, or until it has tried so many things that it has now mutated into something nobody really likes, like Final Fantasy.

Or worse, that it loses all popularity and falls to the pit of forgotten gems, only to keep releasing games and nobody giving a damn, like Suikoden. I bet a lot of JRPG fans out there didn't even know there was a new Suikoden on the PSP, and has been for a few months.
