A Deluxe Edition Of "Layton's Mystery Journey" Is Coming in November

Nintendo announced that Level-5 will be releasing Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy – Deluxe Edition for the Switch. The super unnecessary extra-long title of a game will be headed to the console on November 8th, and will basically be everything from the game wrapped into one package. By the looks of the game on its official shop listing, it appears they've changed up the format of the game so that it still has the interactivity of the 3DS version will remaining a Switch game. We'll probably get a trailer down the road showing off how they changed up the menus, but for now, here's a brief descriptor from Nintendo.

In this entry of the Layton series, the famous Professor Hershel Layton has gone missing, and it is up to his daughter Katrielle – a smart and spirited young lady with a knack for arriving at the truth in spite of paltry evidence – to take center stage as the protagonist. She is aided in her endeavors by a colorful cast of characters, including a young student named Ernest Greeves who acts as her assistant, and Sherl, a talking dog who begins as Katrielle's first client, but quickly becomes her sidekick.

The Deluxe Edition offers more than 40 brand-new puzzles, and some puzzles from the original Nintendo 3DS version of the game which have been refined. The game also features an improved screen layout, enhanced graphics, more than 50 new outfits and all previously released DLC. And because it's on Nintendo Switch, Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy – Deluxe Edition marks the first time the Layton series can be played at home on a TV.
