We were going to comment on the creepy "sign of the witch" that Professor Layton, Remi and young Luke encounter in this screenshot of Professor Layton and the Devil's Flute
-- and how it seems that this Layton
game is going in an unusually spooky and dark direction -- but then we remembered that both
of the Layton
games out in North America contain some fairly scary supernatural-seeming content: mysterious murders, monsters, curses, and the like.
We tend to think of the Layton
games as so pleasant and so light-hearted, but, really, there's often something a bit sinister in many of the puzzles Layton must solve. Grab a cup of tea and head to Famitsu
for more totally spooky screens.
