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.

LAYTON’S MYSTERY JOURNEY: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy - Deluxe Edition - EU cover art

Professor Hershel Layton has gone missing and it's up to his daughter Katrielle – a smart and spirited young lady with a knack of uncovering the truth in spite of paltry evidence – to take centre-stage in LAYTON'S MYSTERY JOURNEY™: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy - Deluxe Edition for Nintendo Switch!

Man, I can't tell if I like the cover art for this game or not. Something about it feels kind of slapdash? I bounce back and forth on how I feel. What do you think?

Official Professor Layton Twitter account is teasing something related to Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box

Curious?



As seen above, the official Professor Layton Twitter account is teasing some sort of news concerning Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box. The image above is a Molentary Railway Express ticket, which is the name of a train in Diabolical Box. There was an HD version of the game released on smartphones in Japan awhile back, but it never saw stateside release. This could be for a localization of that project, or perhaps something new altogether.

Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy - Deluxe Edition gets Switch ESRB rating

I'd say that makes things 100% confirmed

One of the worst-kept secrets in recent game industry history has just been confirmed yet again. The ESRB just added a listing for Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy - Deluxe Edition on the Switch. We already had a very good idea that the game was seeing release outside of Japan, and now we have confirmation that a physical version is on the way. All that's left is the PR from Level-5!

Layton Mystery Agency ~Katrielle’s Mystery Files~ set for Netflix release

But will it get localized?

Here's something we know for a fact. Layton Mystery Agency ~Katrielle’s Mystery Files~ is going to appear on Netflix at some point. Netflix is listed as a sponsor in the end credits from the series' finale. What we don't know is what versions of Netflix the series will appear on.

We're hoping this means a localization is in the works, and the series will get to see release on Netflix all throughout the world. It would make a lot of sense to have the anime appear alongside the Switch version of Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and The Millionaires’ Conspiracy, which is rumored for localization. We'll just have to keep our fingers/toes crossed for confirmation on both soon.

RUMOR - Localization site mentions Profesor Layton and the Curious Village port for Switch

Going back to where it all started?

Well here's an interesting find. Profesor Layton and the Curious Village seems like it's going to get an HD port to the Switch. This information comes from the G4F-Localization, which looks to handle various localization jobs for projects. The listing specifically mentions translation into Italian, German, and Spanish.

This goes along with previous hints of Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and The Millionaires’ Conspiracy DX getting localized as well. Once again, this site makes mention of localization plans for the title, which would mark the second time we've seen indication of the Switch version leaving Japan.

Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy Deluxe Edition gets rated for release in Germany

Looks like our patience is going to pay off on this one, gang. A German USK rating has just popped up for Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy Deluxe Edition on Switch. This likely means that the game is going to see a worldwide release on the platform. Nice to know Katrielle is going to get another shot at finding success, and breathing some new life into the franchise.

We're already 44 episodes deep in the Layton Mystery Agency ~Katrielle’s Mystery Files~ series! We're at the point now where I have no idea what's going on. I guess Katrielle is working as some sort of chef for this episode? When are we going to get a localization on this!?
