Level 5 opened an English website for its Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy (Layton Mystery Journey: Katriel to Daifugō no Inbō), revealing that it will release the game on the Nintendo 3DS in the West early this fall. The game will be available on iOS and Android devices worldwide on July 20.
The game's Nintendo 3DS version is also slated for July 20 in Japan.
The game will be available in eight languages: Japanese, English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Dutch, and Korean.
In the game, Katrielle Layton is the daughter of Professor Hershel 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. The game was originally titled Lady Layton: Fugō-ō Ariadne no Inbō (Lady Layton: Millionaire King Ariadne's Conspiracy).
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 Nintendo 3DS version of the game will also be available in Japan digitally and physically. The game will retail for 4,800 yen (US$44).
Kuniaki Iwanami is designing the game's puzzles, replacing late puzzle master Akira Tago. An as-yet unspecified female artist will perform theme song.
