Solve a mystery when archaeologist and puzzle-solver Professor Layton returns in an all-new adventure, in 3D for the first time! Players can delve deeper into the professor’s past than ever before when Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask is released exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS, 3DS XL and Nintendo 2DS.
The fifth game in the series features 150 brand new brainteasers and a new set of three minigames courtesy of the Professor’s Trunk. Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask also boasts 365 additional Daily Puzzles distributed via the Nintendo Network – one puzzle a day for a whole year from the day of the game’s launch.
The intrepid trio of Layton, Luke and Emmy is called upon to stop the mysterious Masked Gentleman from terrorising the city of Monte d’Or with magically dark miracles. The professor suspects the involvement of the Mask of Chaos, a mask rumoured to bestow great power upon whoever wears it. The revelation takes Layton back to a dark episode of his past, which may hold the solution to the problems of the present…
While being presented in the charming hand-drawn style of previous games in the series, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask on the Nintendo 3DS system uses 3D animations and character models to bring depth to the visuals. There’s also a brand-new game mode that sees the young Professor Layton explore ancient ruins – help him to avoid a variety of objects and reach the exits of a series of puzzling chambers.

Excellent game, but more importantly, excellent service from Zavvi. Very impressed with Sales team and how errors were handled, will definitely be shopping here again, solely due to the fantastic customer service.
This game is amazing. I loved all the previous games and this is no exception. The puzzles were challenging and interesting, so was the plot. The graphics were very attractive. Overall a really good game
Wonderful store. The low prices. Delivered the game very quickly.
Professor Layton is a series that has proven its value again and again. This is his first appearance on the 3DS, which was followed by Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy, yet another excellent game. If you haven't played a game in the series yet, do not worry, as the story easily stands on its own. Excellent mind-bending puzzles, one of the best games in its category.
Good game, gets the mind working. For a 5ver you cant go wrong.
Fab addictive game. great service from zavvi as always
Item was a very reasonable price, easy to order on line and arrived quickly.
I found out about the game through a friend who told me about this brilliant offer. Obviously I've heard of Prof. Layton before but I've stopped playing after Pandora's box. I've gotta say, I've missed it. The music, the riddles, the Ghibli-esque graphics are all very charming. The plot flows well (though I haven't quite finished it yet) and overall I'm realy enjoying it. I think that at my age of 27, it's not uncommon to find most puzzles quite simple, but most good puzzles were probably used in the first few games :P I didn't find it repetitive at all, which was my main concern. With the current offer I find the game to be outstanding value and would recommend it to anyone.
This Layton is not bad, definitely not. Visuals are polished for 3DS, the game has a nice plot and parallel story line, but personally I prefer the older Layton games from the DS era. Why? This game seems slower to play to me, i.e. I have a feeling that I need to pass through numerous story flow to play something. The bonus stages are great and I've found myself playing mainly them. Still, great game for Layton fans.
Really enjoyable and addictive again. Fun new puzzles and great story.
I bought this for my son so he could play a game that was a bit more intellectually challenging than play-only games like Pokemon, shooters, fighting games, etc. And the game did not disappoint. An engaging storyline with mind-stimulating puzzles, it is a great game for kids with growing minds.
It is a great game with a cool story and a variety of puzzles.
Excellent game. Really enjoyed the story line as much as the puzzles.
This game keeps what Professor Layton is famous for but layout changes have made the game more enjoyable. Would definitely recommend
This is a good game recommended for any professor Layton fans.
Awesome item price and item received in good condition. Will likely deal with you guys again.
What you'd expect from the series + the new features of the 3DS. Solving clever puzzles just never gets old.
One of the best games I've ever played, would recommend to anyone
This is a great game. Great story, challenging puzzles. A worthy successor to its DS prequels. It uses the 3D functionality in interesting ways. Some puzzles are familiar, but only because I played through the previous games. Newcomers will probably love them all. You can also download new puzzles, which keep your mind occupied for quite a while. You will not regret buying this game. Unless you hate puzzles :)
Super fun quiz. Evrything you'd expect from prof. Leyton series and more.....
Great game at great price! I give 4 stars because the game was not sealed. but it did not seemed used.
Professor Layton: and The Miracle Mask is a great game. Now l understand what people were saying, 3D can only do it for so long but the graphics are good. Now l have the 3D version I will have more games to play. I've downloaded over 150 games to keep up to date. This will keep me and the wife busy on the golf course.
Fans of Professor Layton will know exactly what to expect from this Professor Layton: and The Miracle Mask, but newcomers won't have much trouble settling in either. A gentle blend of point-and-click adventure game mechanics interspersed with logic puzzles and riddles of all sorts, Miracle Mask is solid in all areas (except for the tinny, soulless music), but doesn't really excel in any way. The puzzles are mostly good without bringing anything new to the table at this point (it's the fifth game in the series, after all), the story lacks direction without ever getting annoying, and the enhanced 3D graphics look very pretty even as it's clear something was lost in the transition from two-dimensional illustrations. Still, there is plenty to do, and any puzzle fan is unlikely to be disappointed.
I wasn't sure about buying Professor Layton: and The Miracle Mask as I didn't have a 3DS, but I decided it was time for an upgrade and took the plunge. I'm over the moon with this game. The puzzles are engaging and offer hours of enjoyment. The 3D effects add a new dimension to the game.
Games are really good, daily puzzles are challenging but look simple. The new 3DS version is quite different to the previous Professor Laytons and it is an improvement. The 3d can be switched off or on which is good.
I bought this for my grandson's 3DS and he is enjoying it immensely. I also found Zavvi were the cheapest compared to other stores. Ordering online was extremely quick and efficient.
I very much enjoyed this game. The puzzles were inventive and entertaining. The new, animated art style was charming and worked very well in 3D. I also enjoyed the story and the characters. Plus having daily puzzles delivered to you is a wonderful way of extending the game. After having completed all 150 puzzles, mini games and collectables, I feel that my 40 hours playing were a pleasure and I look forward to purchasing the next instalment in the series.
The best yet and in 3D as well, and a puzzle every day for a year make this a must buy.
I purchased Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask for Nintendo DS. Ordering was quick and easy and the game arrived three days later. Would recommend Zavvi.com and would have no hesitation in ordering from them again.
Excellent all round game hard to put down once you start playing.
Professor Layton: and The Miracle Mask is another excellent release in the Layton series. It offers terrific value with approximately 150 puzzles to solve. There is also a new puzzle to download every day for a year, for a total puzzle count in excess of 500. The 3D effect is used well throughout the game, not just in the puzzles. There are also the customary mini-games and post-game content to unlock which further enhances the longevity of the game. The graphics have been upgraded since the last release on the DS. The story is also interesting. The production values throughout the game are of a very high standard and I would thoroughly recommend this game to anyone.
Professor Layton: and The Miracle Mask has been brilliantly adapted for 3DS.
This is a fantastic puzzle game and is a brilliant update to the original DS releases with a new cell shaded graphical look. if your a fan of professor layton then you already know your going to enjoy this. if you've never played these games before then i suggest you purchase this as well as the other 3 games as they will keep you entertained well into next year.
Having played all of the previous four games in the Professor Layton series on the DS, and knowing that Professor Layton: and the Miracle Mask one was coming out for the 3DS was one of my reasons for upgrading to the new console. This game does not disappoint. It takes a little while to get used to the new way of navigating around the locations however it isn't really a problem and finding the hint coins (should you need them) is no longer a matter of tapping everywhere. Luke, Emmy and the Professor return and the all-new puzzles are as fun as always - often making you think outside of the box. Mini-games make a welcome return and this game also comes with 365 downloadable puzzles (outside of the main game) which are being released one each day since release. I've played 9 of them so far and they're a lovely little addition to an already great game. If you've played the Layton games before then definitely buy this. If you've not but have a 3DS and fancy some puzzles then definitely try this game - it's well made and doesn't feel too short like some of the others I've played!
Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask is once again a puzzle masterpiece, with an extra 365 days of brainteasers. I'd highly recommend this to anyone.
Professor Layton and The Miracle Mask is a wonderful little game. The 'cute' 3D graphics combine with a really enjoyable story and some testing puzzles to make this a well thought out and very playable game. I would highly recommend this to anyone.
