Professor Layton and the Lost Future places the Professor and his trusted apprentice, Luke, at the centre of a spellbinding adventure after they receive a strange letter sent from 10 years in the future. Players must wind their way through mind-bending puzzles as they decipher clues and strive to unlock a time-twisting mystery that threatens to plunge London into chaos.
