Level-5 announced on Thursday that it plans to release the iOS and Android version of its Layton Mystery Journey: Katriel to Daifugō no Inbō (Layton Mystery Journey: Katriel and the Millionaire's Conspiracy) game worldwide on July 20. The game will be available in eight languages: Japanese, English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Dutch, and Korean.
In Japan, the smartphone version will retail for 1,900 yen (about US$17.50), and some in-game items will cost extra. Level-5 stressed that players can still play to the ending of the game without buying any extra items.
The game was originally titled Lady Layton: Fugō-ō Ariadne no Inbō (Lady Layton: Millionaire King Ariadne's Conspiracy).
Layton Mystery Journey: Katriel to Daifugō no Inbō will have a new protagonist: 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.
Kuniaki Iwanami is designing the game's puzzles, replacing late puzzle master Akira Tago. An as-yet unspecified female artist will perform theme song.
