After a month or so of waiting, details for the new upcoming Professor Layton have finally been announced! Here is what we know so far. The new game will be called Lady Layton: Millionaire King Ariadne’s Conspiracy, and will follow the story of Professor Layton’s daughter Katriel Layton and her talking dog assistant named Sharo.
Katriel and Sharo will be on a journey through London to find her father, who has mysteriously disappeared. But it wouldn’t be a Professor Layton game without some odd detective work here and there. From something as mundane as trying to find someones lost cat, to solving several murder cases.
The game is slated for a spring 2017 release date and will be available for the Nintendo 3DS and both iOS and Android.
Lady Layton will be the seventh mainline game in the series and will introduce a new puzzle designer. The new puzzle designer, Kuniaki Iwanami, will be replacing the Akira Tago due to his unfortunate death earlier this year. Included with all the details announced today, some of the voice cast was also revealed.
The voice cast includes
- Kazumi Arimura as Katriel Layton
- Kōji Yakusho as Sharo the talking dog
- Meisa Kuroki as Geraldine
- Kentarō Sakaguchi as Noah.
