The Professor Layton series is getting a new protagonist, the Professor’s daughter! Developers Level-5 announced the newest entry in the puzzle solving game series called Lady Layton: The Millionaire Ariadone’s Conspiracy.
Katrielle Layton will go on an adventure through London solving multiple cases. She’ll be joined by her dog companion, who, as you can see from the trailer, totally talks.
So far, we’re not sure where her father is, or if he will feature in the story line of the game. From the trailer, it looks like there will be a good number of supporting cast in the game. And like the rest of the series, it seems that the game will focus heavily on puzzles.
So far the details on the game have been released in Japanese, including all of the voice acting cast. The game will release on Nintendo 3DS and also on Android and iOS devices. According to Polygon, Level-5 confirmed that the game will head to the U.S. next year.
Here’s a couple examples of some of the puzzles that you’ll see in the game.
The first game in the series, Professor Layton and the Curious Village was released nearly 10 years ago in Japan. It follows the Professor and his apprentice Luke who are investigating the village of St. Mystere. They are solving an inheritance dispute and solve the case of the missing treasure.
