The fifth game in the series sees you pick up with Layton, Luke and Emmy some time after the events of >Professor Layton and the Spectre’s Call. The intrepid trio is called upon to stop the mysterious Masked Gentleman from terrorising the city of Monte d’Or with magically dark miracles, such as turning citizens to stone. 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. These flashbacks introduce Layton’s parents and childhood friend Randall, and allow you to play as the 17 year-old Layton, who pays a high price for discovering his passion for archaeology.
