As part of the new partnership, Bomanbridge said it will distribute Level 5 Abby's original productions in Asian territories, and listed a Lady Layton Mystery Journey series among the acquisitions. The announcement lists the series at 50 episodes with each a runtime of 30 minutes. Other acquisitions include the Inazuma Eleven Ares and The Snack World animated series.
The Total Licensing magazine had reported in October that a television series based on the Professor Layton game franchise is in development. According to the magazine, the series would have 26 episodes and is slated for 2018.
Level 5's puzzle game series stars Professor Hershel Layton and his apprentice Luke as they solve mysteries. The most recent game in the franchise, Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy, shifted the focus to Hershel Layton's daughter Katrielle Layton. The game launched worldwide on iOS and Android devices on July 20. The game also shipped for Nintendo 3DS in Japan on July 20, and shipped for 3DS in the West on October 6.
