Below the cut is photos of all sorts of stuff from the last few chapters of Azran Legacies. It goes without saying, but major spoilers are included.
If you are interested, though, this isn’t just plot stuff - I got shots of a lot of the environments and the like. This game is gorgeous.
From chapter 4:
Chapter 4 is divided into five sections, and finishing each nets you a picture of the characters involved in that section. It’s a pretty nice touch, though chapter 4 winds up dragging in my opinion.
From Chapter 5:
Some shots of Targent’s headquarters.
Bronev and Layton face off in a puzzle battle.
Bronev tries to recruit Layton by threatening his parents, but Foster calls Bronev on his bluff.
Aria remembers the truth behind the Azran’s treasure and tries to jump from the building so she can’t be used to unlock it, but Layton and co. talk her down. Unfortunately, Foster chooses that moment to reveal his true identity.
The group chases Descole to Snowra, only to be caught by Bronev and betrayed by Emmy, Bronev’s niece and a member of Targent.
Layton and Descole have no choice but to team up.
Layton and Descole find Luke and continue onwards. Descole handles a few of the puzzles - amusingly, you can get them wrong, even though when you’re using him as Foster earlier none of his puzzles have wrong answers.
When Luke nearly falls into an Azran trap, Descole takes the brunt of the blow. Badly injured, he reveals to Layton their past: that they are brothers whose parents, scholars of the Azran, were kidnapped by Targent. In time, their father grew to agree with Targent, and eventually became their leader. Descole let Layton take his place as a foster child, and dedicated himself to solving the mystery of the Azran before his father could.
Layton and Luke continue on.
From the final chapter:
Layton and Luke catch up to Bronev, Emmy, and Aria. Bronev has Layton solve the puzzle guarding the final chamber, and the group proceeds.
The inscription within says the blood of the ambassador from the Azran is the final key. Bronev forces Aria into the chamber there and stabs her through the heart before Layton can stop him. Around them, the ruins awaken and take to the sky, and as they do, hundreds of strange robots come to life and begin raining destruction down.
Aria, now speaking with the voice of the Azran, explains that the Azran created the robots, the “Azran Dolls”, thousands of years ago. But the Dolls could feel emotion and think freely as any human could, and in time they turned against the Azran. The Azran sealed them away, along with Aria to act as a guard.
Bronev, horrified at the destruction, recounts how it was his wife’s dying wish that he find the Azran Legacies so they could build a peaceful world.
Back inside, Layton asks Aria how to stop the Dolls. Aria says if they block the five pillars of light, the Dolls and ruins will lose power - but the light is lethal to humans. Descole arrives, and the group decides to sacrifice themselves. But as Aria tries to block her light, she’s thrown back by a strange energy.
Layton convinces Bronev to help them, and he takes Aria’s place. The energy to the ruins is halted, but the five collapse, leaving Aria the sole survivor. Desperately, she offers up a prayer to the Azran.
(Note - cutscenes after this point can’t be paused, so I couldn’t get photos.)
Aria solves the final puzzle, and the power of the Azran revives Layton and the others. Aria tells Layton that in sacrificing himself, he has proved humanity worthy of the wisdom of the Azran, but Layton rejects it - he says humanity will seek a path for itself.
Around them, the ruins begin to collapse, and Aria begins to glow as well. She explains that she herself is an Azran Doll, and with the ruins collapsing, so will she. After a tearful goodbye, the group leaves, though partway through the escape Descole turns back and bids farewell to Layton.
Outside, Grosky and the police arrive and arrest Bronev and the remnants of Targent. Bronev apologizes to Layton for what he’s done, and tells him his real name - Leopold Reinel. Layton replies that his name is Hershel Layton, and his parents live in England. But he looks forward to meeting Bronev again one day as a fellow archaeologist.
In London, Emmy bids Layton goodbye and thanks him for saving Bronev. Layton tells her she can stay, but she replies that she wants to go on a journey of her own before she can call herself worthy of being the professor’s apprentice again. And besides - there’s a future English gentleman to play that role. The two bid each other farewell.
In the skies, Descole stands at the bow of his airship, his butler Raymond at his side, and sets a course for somewhere new.
