TextIcon.png This game has unused text.
RegionIcon.png This game has regional differences.

To do:
  • Document any and all regional differences, especially with the puzzles.
  • Try and figure out what all the .xq files are, especially the ones with "test" in the name.
  • Look to see if anything regarding the chocolate and Inazuma puzzles can be triggered in non-Japanese versions.

Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy is what happens when you just want your core series to be over with already. It's also the final Layton game centering around the professor's adventures in general, as the torch would later be passed on to his daughter Katrielle.

Unused Graphics

Profile Thumbnails

Two different thumbnails for the characters Aurora and Romilda are in the s_chr_ani_b.xa folder. When clicking on their profiles in the game's bonuses, you can switch between the art/models of their two different outfits. It's possible the thumbnail image was supposed to change alongside it as well, or there were supposed to be separate profiles for them in those outfits.

In addition, there's also one of a human silhouette with a question mark over it. Likely a placeholder.

cesa_a.xi and cesa_b.xi are the top and bottom screen graphics for a translated version of the warning that shows up in the Japanese version, telling the player not to illegally distribute the game over the internet. For some reason, the top screen is missing the 'D' in 'distributing'.

vlm_old.xa has exactly what it says on the tin. Used graphic for comparison.

Temporary Graphic

An image with "仮", or 'temporary', on it. This appears multiple times in files for daily puzzles that have less than 4 pictures included in their instructions.

This needs some investigation.

Some text is stored in the same file as the title screen that reads, "trial version". This actually appears alongside the English title, so it might not be a part of the same demo/trial that the others are.

PL6- Trial Version Text.png

000.xi in trial_a.xa is the Japanese title with "乞うご期待!" or "Stay tuned!" under it.

lt6_try.xi is a message likely shown at the beginning, warning that because the game is a shortened trial, some parts may be different.

trial_thank_a.xi and trial_thank_b.xi are the top and bottom screens thanking the player for, well...playing.

The Japanese version of the stamp that appears on each World Times article once you complete them. In all other versions, it's the classic Layton top hat logo instead.

Unused Text

Note that the code for furigana (kana on top of kanji for easy pronunciation by kids) has been removed for simplicity's sake.

00_000000.xs contains Japanese text from a motion test of sorts.

00_000002 seems to be for another form of event testing.

And 00_000004.xs appears to be for a 'counter event'...whatever that means.

In each folder for the scripts, there's a 00_000000.xs file (and/or a variant of it with the folder's number at the start, such as 04_000000.xs), which is a dialogue of Layton saying "test" in Japanese.

Text Translation
レイトン Layton
<T>テスト <T>Test


In the "Voices" bonus, each character has up to five icons to show which spoken line(s) belongs to who. A majority of them have different facial expressions as well to match the emotions of what they're saying. In Bronev's case, they show him without sunglasses to signify that the line showed up after he had taken them off to reveal his eyes. In the texture file, four of Bronev's icons depict him with sunglasses and one doesn't, as opposed to the three with sunglasses and two without in-game. It's possible that there was originally going to be four lines either from before Chapter 5 or just before he takes the glasses off, and then one from after.

Developer Notes

as_s0000_cfg.xs and as_s0000_trigger.xs in lt6_b.fa/mini appear to be configuration and triggering scripts for the beginning mini-game where you shoot down Targent's missiles and drones, and contain the date and time they were last modified, as well as the name of the developer who originally worked on them. Both have the same text.

as_m0000_cfg.xs and as_m0000_trigger.xs in lt6_en.fa/mini/en are for the same mini-game, but have a different date/time and developer.
