With better aesthetics, all DLC included, and new puzzles, this 3DS port has a lot going for it. LAYTON’S MYSTERY JOURNEY: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy – Deluxe Edition is a great series debut on the Nintendo Switch, and it should excite fans of LEVEL-5’s long-running series. It’d even be a good starting point for first-time Layton players.
Even the things that were off-putting felt more like small stumbles than full-on faceplants. With so much to explore and unravel in this game, plus accessible daily puzzles, Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy feels like a game we could get lost in for a good, long time.
The beginning of the game is kind of boring with the mysteries being quite dull and predictable BUT the last one threw me off so bad. The plot twist with the combined story line really redeemed the overall game. Thought the story they silently stacked all the pieces of the mystery together without the player even knowing and the final reveal was just perfect
Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires Conspiracy Deluxe Edition is as complete as this game will get, with the added benefit of being on a current console. The spirit of the Layton series continues on, but the story doesn’t live up to its predecessors. If you’re here for the puzzles there is more than ever, there are even extra daily puzzles. Just be prepared for a few too many ‘trick’ puzzles or unclear instructions that can have you second-guessing often. At the end of the day, Layton’s Mystery Journey is a decent game that will hopefully lead into a grander adventure with Katrielle at the helm.
Layton's Mystery Journey isn't the best game in the series by any means, but it can still be an enjoyable collection of low-stress puzzles - especially in the absence of any other Layton titles on modern systems. Between the splendid production values and the large number of clever but recycled puzzles, new players will probably be the ones getting the most out of this Deluxe Edition.
Probablemente uno de los Layton más flojitos de la saga a nivel argumental. Sin embargo, no debemos olvidar que se trata de un Spin Off y hay que juzgarlo como tal.
Su banda sonora es tan buena como nos tiene acostumbrados Level-5 con esta franquicia y sus puzzles aunque algunos son más sencillos que sus predecesores, siguen siendo muy divertidos.
This was great! I wouldn't play it as my first Layton game (it seems to assume some familiarity with the game style), but if you're already a fan of the series, 100% worth a play.
It's a Layton game - you know what you're getting in terms of gameplay - but I liked it much better than games 4 through 6 of the original trilogy. I thought the puzzle quality was generally pretty good, and there weren't many puzzles that were based on bizarre assumptions or took 60 minutes to get through a sliding puzzle. Plus, there's no shortage of hint coins for when you just want to be done with a puzzle.
The plot is small-scale, but I'll take that over the last 2 games that were so wrapped up in creating plot twists and drama that I wasn't as able to just get into the puzzles. The game is set up in an episodic fashion, with a number of small cases to solve, which also helps to break up the game compared with the rambling plotlines of the OG series. Some of the small cases are pretty fun, like the Ratman case, and others are just dull, but most aren't actively bad. The characters are pretty dopey - the talking dog is a serious lowlight - but production quality and art are very good, and I'm really just here for the puzzles.
As a fan of the Layton franchise, I’ve played every gane in it, and Katrielle is a really, really bad game. Since launch I bought it and after years, today I haven’t been able to finish it due to its terribly dull and ridiculous story and the worst puzzles of all. I really hope I can play a new Layton’s game as it has to be with the mystery story and good puzzles.
