Following the official announcement of Lady Layton, more details are coming out of the woodwork, such as screenshots, new details and Level-5 revealing Lady Layton is to release during Spring 2017, for the 3DS and on Android and iOS devices.

Straight from Level-5, here’s the game’s blurb, packed with details regarding the differences between this Layton adventure and previous titles:

“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.”

「現実はいつも稀有なものなのです!」 カトリーエイル・レイトン CV:有村 架純 新「レイトン」シリーズ主人公。かなりの男勝りの性格でありながら、父レイトンより、礼儀正しき淑女教育を受けており、上品にふるまう努力は一応している。ナゾトキの際は、軽い根拠しかないのに、断言するという『強引な推理』をやってのけるが、なぜかそれが次々と的中する。

For anyone looking to learn more about this game, you could click here to visit the official site for Lady Layton, but just bear in mind the site is in Japanese so if you’re looking to read some of the character bios you’ll want to use a translator. You can however just scroll down and look at the screenshots instead, or continue below and see the official trailer once again, but this time with English subtitles. The choice is yours.
