The game was formerly known as Lady Layton, but its official title is now Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy. It was previously announced that the game will see a worldwide release on iOS and Android devices on July 20, with the localized 3DS version of the game coming at a later date. Level 5 has just announced that the 3DS version will be coming to the west this fall, with eight supported languages at launch.
Layton’s Mystery Journey follows the story of new protagonist Katrielle, who is the daughter of Hershel Layton. The professor himself mysteriously vanished, so Katrielle became a detective to try to track him down. The game takes place in London, where she takes on a variety of cases to solve. She also has an assistant named Sharo, who also happens to be a talking dog.
Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy is set to be released for mobile devices on July 20, and for 3DS some time this fall.
