Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle is a puzzle video game for the Nintendo 3DS. It is the fifth game in the Professor Layton series, but the third story chronologically. The game is a prequel to the series, set after Professor Layton and the Specter's Flute, and continues the story of the search for Jean Descole. The game was announced during Nintendo's E3 2010 press conference, as Level-5's representative game for Nintendo 3DS.

No further details were given. During Nintendo's September 29 press event, new screenshots and a trailer for "Mask of Miracle" were released, showing that the game has received a visual and gameplay overhaul since its jump to 3DS: the typical hand-drawn 2D sprites have been replaced by 3D models of the characters; the player can now examine areas in a 3D perspective; and some puzzles now take advantage of the 3DS' unique features, such as its motion sensor. Despite its new visual style, the series' iconic animated cutscenes remain intact. Mysterious Flower, a song sung by Yumi Matsutoya, is featured during the credits. 

  • Professor Hershel Layton- His skill in mastering puzzles and solving mysteries has earned the professor popularity all around the world. He is a professor of archeology in London at Gressenheller University. This professor didn't always have an interest in archaeology.

  • Jean Descole- This evil archaeologist's true motives are unknown. He knows Layton, but how?

  • Alfredo Dalston- Another millionaire resident of Montdol, and somewhat of a rival to the Leidle family. He attended secondary school with Hershel, Sharon, and Lando.

Super Street Fighter IV is a 2010 fighting game produced by Capcom. It is an updated version of Street Fighter IV and has been said to mark the definitive end of the fourth installment of the Street Fighter series.

Super Street Fighter IV is stated to be released as one of the launch titles for the Nintendo 3DS, with 3D functionality.

  • It will take advantage of its features such as autostereoscopic 3D and improved wireless features, such as Wi-Fi.
  • In an interview with Famitsu, Yoshinori Ono stated that the gameplay will be the same as Super Street Fighter IV.
