After selling more than 16 million copies worldwide, LEVEL-5 has announced that the Professor Layton series will return with Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy.
The strategic mystery puzzler will see Katrielle Layton search for her missing father, Professor Hershel Layton.
Once known as Lady Layton: The Millionaire Ariadne’s Conspiracy, it is said to be an “exciting departure” from what we have previously seen in the series in that it is constructed with smaller conundrums and puzzles that will need to be solved to complete the wider mystery.
With LEVEL-5 abby publishing the game, it will first see a worldwide release on iOS and Android platforms before arriving on Nintendo 3DS in early autumn – with support for eight languages at launch.
“This is the seventh entry in the Professor Layton series and we are excited that Katrielle Layton is taking centre stage in this new iteration of the game,” enthused LEVEL-5 CEO Akihiro Hino. “Professor Layton fans will enjoy the mystery and fantasy adventure play that they have come to love and appreciate throughout the series.”
Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy will release for mobile worldwide on July 20th, and on Nintendo 3DS in autumn 2017.
