GameTap talks with Akihiro Hino, creator of the best-selling DS title from Japan - The Brains behind Professor Layton

GameTap's Ayumi Miyama writes: Move over Dr. Kawashima, there's a new Professor in town.

Greeted enthusiastically in Japan last year, the stylistic, engaging, and challenging DS title from Japanese developers Level 5, Professor Layton and the Curious Village, is just days into its U.S. release.

GameTap caught up with Level 5 founder Akihiro Hino to take measure of his expectations for the U.S. release of the first in his Professor Layton trilogy.

GameTap: What is Level 5's, and your, role in the upcoming Professor Layton movie?

Hino-san: The movie is getting along, but I can't really tell you any of the details.

The story is too old to be commented.
