    The Deluxe Edition on Switch is not only a great way for old fans to return to the franchise, but an excellent jumping-on point for new players to dive into the Layton series.

    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.

    Level-5 offers us this adventure on Nintendo Switch with news such as its new protagonist, independent cases in its story and a lot of downloadable content. Despite not being the most outstanding Layton game, it is undoubtedly the most complete title to date and an essential game for every fan of the franchise.

    Level-5 brings the classic 3DS game back, with upgraded visuals and a great control adaptation for both TV and portable Switch modes. It offers plenty of puzzles and minigames, though some of them are confusing.

    Katrielle's adventure makes your brain work for progress on the Switch. With 40 new puzzles the game is the largest Layton game yet. The game is ported fantastically for the Switch and has never looked as great as this before. A definite must buy.

    Layton’s classic adventure holds up quite well. This version offers extra content and, even if they are not big additions, it’s a good reason to rediscover this classic.

    This is more picturesque sightseeing than mysterious storytelling, but the puzzles are mostly challenging and work well on Switch.

    Overall, while her debut adventure is not nearly as grand as anything her father did, Katrielle’s story is still full of the same wit and charm one can expect from a game in the Professor Layton series. If you like past games in the series, you will probably still enjoy this more laid back entry, but first timers would be better off starting from the beginning. Various side features like dressing Kat in different outfits or decorating the agency’s office give the player ample opportunity to sit back and take a break from all the puzzles, and London’s streets are still fun to explore, especially when coupled with another fantastic soundtrack from series composer Tomohito Nishiura. If you find yourself craving some puzzles and English accents, Mystery Journey is a game you should look into picking up.
