The future Luke has essentially a grown-up version of his old outfit. He wears a navy blue cap, and similar shoes with blue socks under them. He wears a blue blazer and a tie.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Like his past self, Luke is a kind man, though rather skeptical of those around him from growing up in the future London.

Plot[edit | edit source]

Professor Layton and the Unwound Future[edit | edit source]

Prologue[edit | edit source]

Needing assistance in freeing his London from the Family, Future Luke sent a letter back through time via Baldwin Road's clock shop's time machine to Professor Layton. He requested that he go to the clock shop in order to help him.

Chapter One: Is This The Future?[edit | edit source]

To convince the professor and Luke that they were really in the future, Luke directed them by more letters first to Green Hospital, where an ill and elderly Dr. Schrader was staying, and then to the Gilded Seven Casino, where he met them in person.

Chapter Two: A Boy Named Luke[edit | edit source]

Luke first challenged Layton to a puzzle battle to prove his identity. After denoting a flaw in the puzzles, Luke was convinced that he was the real Layton.

He proceeded to tell him and his past self that soon after the prime minister, Bill Hawks, was killed in the time machine explosion 10 years before, Layton had aided in hiding Dr. Stahngun, amazed by his research. Layton had started taking over the underworld, and eventually became the boss of the Family, bringing in cash from all sorts of 'businesses' to fund Stahngun's completion of his time machine, which now resided in the clock shop, incomplete, but functioning.

Trying to leave the casino, he tried to stop Bostro from taking the three for questioning, but failed. Bostro ordered his goons to shootout the casino, searching for them. Future Luke managed to help Layton build a gun from damaged slot machine parts that fired coins, and sent the Family running.

Chapter Three: The Enigmatic Future[edit | edit source]

Future Luke decided that to stop Future Layton and rescue the prime minister and the missing scientists, they would have to storm his headquarters in Chinatown, the Towering Pagoda. However, Layton and Luke needed to speak to Inspector Chelmey back in the present, so Future Luke brought them back to the clock shop, adamant that he would stay behind to prevent further disruption to time.

Chapter Six: Traveling Companions?[edit | edit source]

Future Luke was not present for the beginning of the chapter, but Layton explains to Flora about his need of help, and gets her quite excited to meet him. He is waiting for the group at the park observatory. He is surprised when he sees Flora, as he doesn't fully recognize her from the past. When Layton tells Future Luke that Inspector Chelmey and Barton had traveled in time alongside them beyond their intentions, he doesn't seem too surprised; he acknowledged their presence as a possibility. Future Luke tells the three about Bostro's thugs, and they then set out to sneak into Chinatown.

Chapter Seven: Chinatown[edit | edit source]

Layton, Luke, Flora, and Future Luke head to the Gilded Seven, and get the parrot to mimic Bostro's voice to scare off the thugs (Shmelmey and Shmarton). This attempt is successful, and, with a puzzle counter to burst through, they sneak into Chinatown.
