Layton’s Mystery Journey - Nintendo Switch

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.
