Layton's Mystery Journey

Layton’s Mystery Journey Coming to the West this Fall

The newest installment to the Professor Layton series is coming to North America and Europe for Nintendo 3DS. Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and The Millionaires’ Conspiracy will be available for purchase this fall. Level 5 also confirmed the mobile version of the game will be available worldwide on July 20th. 

A New Layton Adventure

Previously known as Lady Layton, Layton’s Mystery Journey follows Katrielle Layton as she searches for her missing father, the famed Professor Layton. Of course, the new game features most of the puzzles and riddles; however, Layton’s Mystery Journey departs from the series’ norms. Instead of containing unrelated puzzles, the new game features puzzles that connect. Players need to solve to progress the plot.


The Japanese version of the 3DS game releases on the same day as the mobile app: July 20th. Unfortunately, Level 5 didn’t announce a date for the Western release, aside from mentioning a possible autumn release.

What do you think of the newest edition in the Layton series? Will you pick up the mobile version or wait for the 3DS version? Let us know by commenting below. Here’s hoping Lady Layton will be just as good as Professor Layton.
