A brand-new adventure in the Layton series – with a female protagonist: As the seventh main entry into the core Layton series, Layton’s Mystery Journey follows Professor Hershel Layton’s daughter, Katrielle "Kat" Layton.
A new cast of leading and supporting characters: When Professor Hershel Layton (the protagonist of past Layton titles) goes missing, it’s up to her daughter and friends to figure out what’s going on!
Smart puzzle solving: As Kat, explore different environments and solve a collection of different puzzles that will get you closer to finding your father. Navigation and puzzle solving will be heavily reliant on the Nintendo 3DS touch screen.
Solve it like a Layton: Solving mysteries runs in the family! With Professor Layton’s whereabouts unknown, it’s time for his daughter Katrielle to take centre stage in Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy for Nintendo 3DS family systems.
The story this time begins with Katrielle setting up the Layton Detective Agency on Chancer Lane, determined to prove her worth and hoping that the exposure will help her to uncover clues regarding her missing father’s whereabouts. Whizzing around London on her trusty bicycle, solving case after unlikely case, Katrielle will become embroiled in a quizzical quest that eventually leads to her unwitting discovery of the Millionaires’ Conspiracy.
- Detective Work: However, she’s not alone in her endeavours – a young Gressenheller student by the name of Ernest Greeves joins the agency as her assistant, and the team quickly grows to three when Sherl, a talking dog, becomes Katrielle’s first client and subsequently a trusty sidekick.
- I think I've got it! Gather up clues as you answer conundrums and pin down the logic in seemingly illogical situations. The more puzzles you solve, the closer to cracking each case you’ll come – but you can always revisit an old case to seek out anything extra you might have missed! Use the Touch Screen to explore your surroundings, speak to characters and discover puzzles, plus hidden Hint Coins that can help out when you’re a pinch. Other special coins hidden in the scenery unlock all sorts of new outfits, so you can give Katrielle dazzling new looks as she cracks cases. Better yet, each outfit comes with one special puzzle!
- Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy includes more puzzles than any game in the Layton series thus far, and what’s more, bonus puzzles will be available to download daily for one year, starting from launch day.
- A Break from the Case: Puzzles aren’t the only things that London has to offer, though. Uncover collectibles as you explore, or pop back to the Layton Detective Agency office between cases and redecorate it as you like, changing walls, rugs, tables and more. In the Layton Museum, exchange museum points – earned by completing daily puzzles – for memorabilia and build up a fine archive of objects from Katrielle’s famous father’s previous adventures.
