Professor Layton Movie Coming To The West

April 7, 2010

Last year, in Japan, an anime movie of everybody’s favourite DS duo was released and now it’s getting a Western release. Titled Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva, the film was written by Akihiro Hino, the games designer, and it was created by OLM who have been behind the recent Pokemon movies.

Manga Entertainment, a British anime distributor, plan to bring the Professor Layton anime to DVD and Blu-Ray this September. However, there is no mention on whether it will receive an English dub (preferably from the game’s voice actors) or whether it will retain the Japanese voices already recorded.

Apparently, unlike other game movies, this is meant to be quite good which should please fans. In fact, it’s even got a sequel in the works and the idea of live-action Layton is being discussed.
