US dates for DS games today: Professor Layton and the Last Specter will arrive on the original handheld on October 17 while Tetris: Axis will come to 3DS on October 2 (via CVG).
Will this be the Professor’s last outing on the first DS before making a 3DS debut? If it weren’t for the system’s weak performance to date we’d say it was for sure, but now we don’t know.
Tetris: Axis on the other hand is yet another update on the timeless classic complete with new modes and multiplayer. It’s sure to be a hit, just like the inevitable Vita version and other console versions.
