Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy – Deluxe Edition Review

For some time individuals have kidded about how the Nintendo Switch is gradually making the Wii U absolutely and totally superfluous. This is most likely generally advantageous, given what number of extraordinary games would go unplayed, something that is apparently occurring for the 3DS as well. Among the first is Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy – Deluxe Edition, a decision that bodes well. With it opening the entryway to another arrangement of games and being a piece of the darling Layton arrangement, it bodes well to present the principal game. Be that as it may, given the progressions in the course of recent years, is it worth looking at or does it depend too intensely on past titles?

Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy – Deluxe Edition begins with a fairly interesting reason. Katrielle, the little girl of the respected Hershel Layton, decides to emulate her dad’s example of comprehending riddles and puzzles by opening her own criminologist organization. She is more than ready to acknowledge any secret, bringing about a fairly inquisitive one by a talking hound named Sherl. She should simply make sense of who Sherl is, yet before she can do that Scotland Yard needs her.

Like most overarching stories, less important things, such as finding Big Ben’s missing hand, take precedence over larger stories like Sherl and finding Hershel Layton. While some progress is made in both cases, this adventure largely focuses on the Seven Dragons and figuring out their secrets. It’s an interesting story that is largely sold by the colorful cast of characters and charming puzzles.

Gameplay comes down to two modes. There is one where you investigate and another that involves solving puzzles. Investigation is largely looking around an area and questioning people or examining things. Sometimes an investigation will lead to a puzzle or a potential clue to solve the case. In the event you get a puzzle, these test various parts of your brain.

What stands out about Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy – Deluxe Edition and really the Layton series in general is offering a diverse range of challenges. Nothing is beyond the grasp of a child, though there are optional hints you can unlock by spending tokens, making it fairly accessible. What makes these puzzles nice is their willingness to explain the trick or go with an obvious but not exactly obvious solution. A fantastic example of this is actually the second puzzle.

All Katrielle needs to do is figure out the least number of times you need to touch a clock to turn 3:30 into midnight. There are a lot of rather obvious solutions that likely pop into your head. You can move the minute and hour hand for two, maybe you move the minute hand so many times you actually only need to do it once, perhaps you calculated it a weird way given you can go up to 99 but the solution is actually zero. The clock moves on its own, so eventually it will get there without anyone touching it.
