Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and The Millionaires Conspiracy

Level-5 has released the latest trailer for Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and The Millionaires’ Conspiracy.

The upcoming Layton game follows a “high-speed comical puzzle-solving story.” Whereas previous Layton games followed a story where one grand mystery was solved, Layton’s Mystery Journey follows a story where you solve the mysteries behind small incidents occurring in London one after the other. It stresses a “more everyday and familiar feeling,” while being filled with dramatic developments and elements that will make you laugh.

The gameplay itself will see players move around town while investigating various locations, talking with others and examining items to find mysteries and hints, and solving various puzzles, all of which are original to the game.

Here’s a brief overview of the story:

Katrielle is a “jack-of-all-trades and mystery-solving detective” who solves strange incidents that occur in London. She’ll take on any job, from looking for someone’s pet cat to exposing the criminal in a murder case. Her bizarre ideas for solving cases are gradually becoming a topic, and she’s starting to receive various cases.

While she originally started working as a detective to find her father Hershel Layton who suddenly disappeared, she is working to solve a variety of mysteries in town in the course of it. As she is pursuing new requests each day, the search for her father Hershel is not progressing.

Katrielle has an assistant to help her in her deductions. That assistant’s name is Sharo. A dog who can somehow talk. So then, what kind of hard to understand mysteries await Katrielle?

Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and The Millionaires’ Conspiracy is due out for 3DS in Japan, and for iOS and Android worldwide, on July 20. It will support Japanese, English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Dutch, and Korean languages.
