Layton’s Mystery Journey heading west on 3DS this fall
Finally, here's the release date on 3DS outside Japan
Last week’s Japanese Nintendo Direct was the occasion for Level-5 to confirm the release date of the upcoming “Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaire’s Conspiracy”. And while we where happy to know that we could expect the game to release on iOS and Android on July 20th worldwide, only the Japanese players will enjoy the adventures of Katrielle Layton on 3DS that same day. For other territories, we’ll have to wait a little longer.
Through a press release, Level-5 confirmed that Layton’s Mystery Journey for Nintendo 3DS will release outside Japan in Fall. This slight “delay” compared to our Japanese fellows is understandable since it’ll allow its localisation. In the meantime, those of you who can’t wait to play the game can enjoy it on iOS and Android starting this summer.
Formerly titled Lady Layton: The Millionaire Ariadne’s Conspiracy, this new instalment of the Professor Layton series is a strategic mystery puzzle solving game that follows Katrielle Layton, who searches for her missing father Professor Hershel Layton.
The new title is an exciting departure from previous games in the Professor Layton series as it is made up of a combination of smaller conundrums and puzzles that need to be solved in order to complete the overall mystery. This new format is going to appeal to existing Layton fans as well as attract a brand new audience.
