Lady Layton: The Millionaire Ariadone’s Conspiracy hitting NA/EU in 2017, subbed trailer

Direct link here

As one of LEVEL-5’s masterpieces, the PROFESSOR LAYTON series of puzzle adventure games has sold more than 15.5 million units worldwide to date. Its newest official sequel, Lady Layton: The Millionaire Ariadone’s Conspiracy — available on Nintendo 3DS/Android/iOS — was announced to be released in Spring 2017 in Japan. Not only will the main character switch from ‘Professor Layton’ (Hershel Layton) to ‘Kat’ (Katrielle Layton), many of its characters will be brand new. The story will focus less on dynamic problem-solving and more on solving multiple mystery cases observed in the everyday lives of Londoners, which will bring a faster tempo and more comical tone to the series. It will be more familiar — and funnier — than ever, while maintaining an adventurous quality. The creators of the puzzles and brain-teasers, the core element of the series, will also be new. Please look forward to the new PROFESSOR LAYTON series, targeting a Western release in 2017.


Neat, hard to replace Layton, but I'm open to it. I hope he has a cameo.

Well, he is mentioned by name and that one lady even expected Layton himself, so it's not like he's gone, missing or dead. I'd say a cameo is likely!

Yeah I'm definitely expecting him to take over the mentor roll that Layton's professor played throughout the series so far.

Will he look aged? I can only assume he had kids after the events of Unwound Future.

I think he'll look aged, yeah. Though part of me thinks it'll be hilarious if he still looks exactly the same

So, is she related to Professor Layton in some way? I haven't played the three most recent Layton games, so I feel like I'm in the dark.

She said in the trailer that she is the daughter of Professor Layton, but the last 3 games didn't had any clue about that...

Ah, thanks! I guess we'll wait and hope to find out who the mom is.
