Layton fans, it’s time to put on your best top hat and get ready to solve more puzzles!
LEVEL-5 are teaming up with Scrap Entertainment to bring you Layton’s Mystery Journey: Real World Puzzle Solving.
Just like the name suggests, the puzzles in this game are all in our world and are waiting to be solved. Coinciding with the Japanese release on 3DS and the worldwide mobile release of Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy Layton fans have until September 21st to try and solve all 50 puzzles.
Featuring puzzles both online and in real-world locales, Layton fans will get to stretch their problem-solving muscles.
The first of the puzzles features none other than Pikotaro, the man behind the viral song, “PPAP (Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen).” Any Layton fans who are eager to start solving puzzles can watch the video puzzle below.
While some of the puzzles are online, LEVEL-5 and Scrap are promising fans the chance to solve puzzles in real world locations. The first puzzle premiering on June 23rd is in Japan’s Shibuya district. The second real-world puzzle is set for July 20th and will be at London’s Waterloo Station.
For any fans who might need some help solving puzzles, not to worry! The game allows users the chance to link their Twitter accounts and collaborate with other players all over the world. There’s not even a need to worry about language as the game uses Google Translate’s AI to translate a wide range of languages into whatever language you speak best.
Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy is the latest release in the Layton Series. Unlike previous games in the series where players were tasked with solving one grand puzzle, this game has players solving many smaller puzzles that all weave together throughout the plot. The game releases June 20th on mobile devices worldwide and on the 3DS in Japan. A global launch of the game on 3DS is slated for Early Autumn of 2017.
