The snappily titled Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy is getting a deluxe release on Nintendo Switch later this year.
Level-5’s puzzle adventure game was first released on iOS, Android, and Nintendo 3DS back in 2017, before coming the Nintendo Switch in Japan last year. It’s the seventh mainline entry in a series that rose to popularity during the DS era before going dormant in 2013.
Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy is a slight reboot for the franchise, and follows Professor Layton’s daughter Katrielle – and her talking dog, Sherl – on a mystery set in old London town.
The deluxe edition will hit the Nintendo eShop on November 8, 2019, and comes with a host of new features and improvements. In addition to an HD graphical overhaul, it also includes 40 new puzzles, a complete suite of unlocked downloadable content, and 50 new outfits to discover.
It’s entirely possible that the game’s arrival on Nintendo Switch will be a success, and if it is, we hope Level-5 will give the Layton series the time and attention it deserves and begin work on a follow-up.
We’re also quite pleased to see another 3DS game get a Switch outing. We’d love to see more ports from the ageing handheld as it approaches retirement, with the Mario & Luigi series, Metroid: Samus Returns, and The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds all on our wish list. Let us know what games you’d like to see in the comments below.
We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
