Lady Layton: The Millionaire Ariadone’s Conspiracy stars Hershel’s daughter, Katrielle “Kat” Layton. The puzzle title will contain many new characters (Basset Hound!), and the story will focus less on dynamic problem-solving and more on solving “multiple mystery cases observed in the everyday lives of Londoners.”
Level-5 feels this will bring a faster tempo and more comical tone to the series while maintaining an adventurous quality.
The creators of the puzzles and brain-teasers, the core element of the series, will also be new.
Lady Layton: The Millionaire Ariadone’s Conspiracy will be release on 3Ds and mobile in Japan next spring, and will head west sometime next year as well.
The Professor Layton series of puzzle-adventure games have sold more than 15.5 million units worldwide to date.
