I don’t have much to say about Professor Layton and the Unwound Future. It’s a Professor Layton game, and while that’s a good thing, it’s also a known quantity at this point.

We learn a bit about Layton’s past here; he turns out not to be particularly socially adept or comfortable around women, as one might expect in retrospect from his harping on being a gentleman. Also, my initial reading was that he and Luke shelter / infantilize Flora to an unpleasant degree in this game, and that the developers chose a lousy voice actor for Flora. But, actually, given how young the voice actor sounds, maybe Flora is supposed to be a lot younger than Luke, in which case both of those make more sense? I don’t remember from the earlier games what her age is supposed to be.
