A New Main Character in the Professor Layton Series
Level-5 has announced a new game coming in 2017 – Lady Layton!
Her name is, in fact, Catriel Layton, the daughter of the Professor Layton that fans of the series already know and love.
The puzzle-solving focus of the series appears to be in tact. Also, Catriel seems to have already mastered the whole “point accusingly” maneuver. Just look at her go.
Lady Layton will be coming to 3DS and smartphones in 2017.
Here’s what CrunchyRoll provided as a summary of what we know about the game so far:
The full title is Lady Layton: The Conspiracy of King Millionaire Ariadne, and it stars none other than Professor Layton’s daughter, Catriel Layton. She also happens to be into the puzzle-solving detective life, and initially got into this line of work to find out where her father disappeared to. When progress isn’t going so hot on that mystery, she takes on odd detective work around town with her assistant Sharo, who is a talking dog.
