Are you looking for some chills and thrills this Halloween that don’t involve a bunch of blasting with shotguns and use your head instead?  Then go out to the stores and look for Professor Layton’s newest adventure.  Nintendo has announced that it is available today.

In Professor Layton and the Last Specter, distinguished scholar Hershel Layton has yet to become a world-famous master sleuth. Upon receiving a mysterious letter from an old friend, he travels to a rural town called Misthallery that’s said to be haunted by a nocturnal phantom. As players progress through the story by solving a wide variety of logic, slide, picture, number and language puzzles, they’ll also encounter Layton’s brainy assistant, Emmy Altava, and witness his first meeting with would-be apprentice Luke Triton. The game’s numerous puzzles intertwine with the storyline in clever ways and are suitable for all skill levels. Starting Oct. 23, players can also download additional puzzles by connecting their Nintendo DS system to the Internet via Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection.

Everything isn’t exactly as it seems in these titles, but they sure do use your head to get through the puzzles.  Some of them seem tough, but are obvious once you figure them out.  Others are more difficult.  Good thing they include some hints!  If you haven’t checked out this series yet, then do yourself a favor and take a look for it.
