The challenging puzzle and mystery saga is a long-running favourite for Nintendo fans. Developed by Level-5, the stylish minds behind Ni No Kuni and Yo-Kai Watch games, each edition is a flurry of colour and whimsy.

LAYTON’S MYSTERY JOURNEY: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy is a little bit different.  Our main man, Professor Hershel Layton, is missing and it is up to his bright daughter Katrielle to uncover the mystery. A vibrant group of friends and suspects will aid Katrielle upon her quest to find her legendary lost father.

The game features the likes of Sherl, a talking dog. The relationship quickly goes from client to friend, as it would for anyone who encounters a conversing canine.

The deluxe edition provides fans with over 40 more puzzles to solve. These include remastered favourites from the original Nintendo 3DS game. Accompanying the move to the Nintendo Switch is an improved screen layout, graphical fidelity, and over 50 additional DLC items.

Level-5 is finally making the big move onto the Nintendo Switch. Not long ago, the announcement of the beloved Ni No Kuni remaster made waves.  Yo-Kai Watch 4 introduces the series to the portable machine, too. Inazuma Eleven Ares is on the horizon for some time in 2019.

The only mystery left is… will we ever see a Dark Cloud remake on the Nintendo Switch?
