Very popular on the DS and 3DS, we’re finally getting a game in the Layton series for the Switch. Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy – Deluxe Edition (say that three times fast) is coming to the Switch on November 8, 2019. Unlike the majority of prior games, this one is being published by Level-5 instead of Nintendo. It appears there will be a digital and physical release as well!

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!
She’s 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.
