The Enigmatic Future is the third chapter of Professor Layton and the Unwound Future.
Future Luke tells Professor Layton and "little" Luke that one of his acquaintances is waiting for them in the restaurant, so they decide to go there next. When they arrive, they meet up with Shipley, the postman from before. He tells them that the future Layton has a base in the Towering Pagoda in Chinatown. Unfortunately, it is heavily guarded, so they decide to split up to increase their chances of finding a way in.
Professor Layton and Luke start heading in the direction of Chinatown, but the professor spots the mysterious woman from before and runs after her. Unfortunately, she goes around the corner and disappears. Professor Layton then explains that the woman looks similar to his old sweetheart, Claire, who died ten years ago in a failed experiment. A small flashback is shown with Layton giving her a gold pocket-watch while having dinner, chatting about their future together if he managed to get a job as a professor.
Back on their way to Chinatown, they spot a man in a white lab coat. The man soon leaves and they notice that he leaves footprints. They wonder why the man is walking around with wet shoes, but decide to find out another time. After a while, they arrive at the Thames, where Layton spots a Lighthouse that wasn't there before. Not much later, they spot another man in a lab coat. When they realize that he also leaves footprints however, he has already gone out of sight.
When they finally arrive at the entrance of Chinatown, they find out it is sealed off by a giant door, which is guarded by two Family members. The two guards look very similar to Inspector Chelmey and Barton, which reminds the professor that he wanted to ask Chelmey something. Future Luke catches up with them and informs them that it is possible for them to go back to their time using the time machine in the clock shop.
