Level-5 recently announced a new Professor Layton game called Lady Layton: The Millionaire Ariadone’s Conspiracy.

This sequel focuses on Layton’s daughter, Katrielle Layton, and see’s her roaming around London attempting to solve various mysteries. Level-5 says:

“The story will focus less on dynamic problem-solving and more on solving multiple mystery cases observed in the everyday lives of Londoners, which will bring a faster tempo and more comical tone to the series. It will be more familiar – and funnier – than ever, while maintaining an adventurous quality.”

So whilst there will still be puzzles, the style of such puzzles will be a tad different than in other Layton games. As someone who hasn’t played a Layton game in a LONG time I might take this opportunity to get back into the series.
