Game developer Level-5 announced during its "Level-5 Vision 2016 -New Heroes-" presentation on Wednesday that the new game in its Professor Layton puzzle game franchise is Lady Layton: Fugō-ō Ariadne no Inbō (Lady Layton: Millionaire King Ariadne's Conspiracy). The game is slated for spring 2017 on Nintendo 3DS, Android, and iOS.
Level-5 began streaming a preview video with animation by A-1 Pictures.
As previously announced, the game will have a new protagonist. The presentation revealed that this new protagonist is Professor Layton's daughter Katriel Layton. The story is set in London, where she will solve any incident, from missing cats to murder cases. Her initial purpose, however, was to look for her father, who has disappeared. Her assistant is a talking dog named Sharo.
The cast includes: (name romanizations not final)
Kazumi Arimura as Katriel
Kōji Yakusho as Sharo
Meisa Kuroki as Geraldine
Kentarō Sakaguchi as Noah
Kuniaki Iwanami is designing the game's puzzles, replacing late puzzle master Akira Tago.
