Fate of Professor Layton series (no spoilers)?

Now that Azran Legacies is officially out in Japan and will likely get elsewhere by year end or early 2014, has Level-5 said anything about the future of the series?

Does it being Layton's last starring role mean the series will end? I can't see anything drastic happening to Layton at the end of Azran Legacies since it'll just lead right into the original trilogy. Also, there aren't really any loose ends at the conclusion of Unwound Future.

Probably. We might get a spin off starring grown up Luke although.

Didn't Unwound Future end with a sequel hook of sorts with Luke's letter? Or was that another game?
Best console war summary ever. TL;DR version at 2:05.

I believe the official word is that the series may continue, just without the Professor in the starring role. I'll be sad to bid him adieu.

PS. It's unlikely that the game will be released internationally until Q4 2014, unless it gets localized in half the time of the last four games.

I wouldn't mind if it ended. Personally I grew tired of the series by the 3rd game. I didn't care to play beyond that. They're good games but to me it grew tedious. However they're still very good.

All good things must come to an end. You don't expect it to go on forever do you? I can totally see a bunch of people complaining about a milked series should it go on. Be content with what is available :)

They haven't said anything just yet, but... Professor Triton, go go go!
