In anticipation of Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box's release this August, Nintendo of America has setup of a Twitter account for the top hat wearing sleuth, dispensing bite-sized riddles for followers to solve. It's a cute idea, and it almost makes up for the long delay since Diabolical Box's Japan release nearly two years ago.

The professor is quick to admit the silliness of the affair, though. "Frankly... I'm ashamed," he discloses in his first tweet. "I have made myself a Twitter page and officially joined the world of technology. Perhaps Luke may help me update."
