Detective work

Thankfully, Katrielle isn't alone in her endeavours – a young Gressenheller student by the name of Ernest Greeves joins the agency as her assistant, and the team quickly grows to three when Sherl, a talking dog, becomes Katrielle’s first client and subsequent trusty sidekick.

A break from the case

Puzzles aren’t the only things that London has to offer, though. Uncover collectibles as you explore, or pop back to the Layton Detective Agency between cases and redecorate it as you like, changing walls, rugs, tables and more. In the Layton Museum, exchange museum points – earned by completing Daily Puzzles – for memorabilia and build up a fine archive of objects from Katrielle’s famous father’s former forays..

When you need a break from sleuthing, try your hand at a trio of additional minigames: devise delicious dinners for discerning diners, sort a shop to sell stockpiles of stuff, or lead Sherl out of the pound in as few rounds as can be found. You can also dip into Case Codas to see side stories that run parallel to your main adventure.

The Layton Detective Agency: "Any Mystery Solved"

It all happens on London's famous Chancer Lane, where Katrielle establishes the Layton Detective Agency – a private eye concern that says ‘aye’ to anything its patrons can muster. From missing pet ponderations to murder mysteries, Katrielle will undertake any investigation. Her remarkable and fantastical deductions quickly earn her a reputation which makes the young sleuth's services highly sought after.

Though motivated initially by the desire to track down her missing father, Professor Hershel Layton, Katrielle soon finds herself embroiled in a cacophony of cases across the country's capital. As a result, the hunt for the AWOL archaeology professor is pushed to the back of the queue.

The beginning of the journey

The Layton Detective Agency opens its doors to the public...and what member of the public should walk through those doors first, but a talking dog!? This canine is a conundrum to himself, and the agency motto of 'Any Mystery Solved' is a bone too juicy to be put down.

CI_NSwitch_LaytonsMysteryJourneyDeluxeEdition_DividerMiddle.gif

And who is this dog?

The amnesia-afflicted Sherl calls on Katrielle's services to uncover his past and discover his true identity. It's the first of many a mystery our young heroine will help to solve.

Sherl is on paw to help crack each case with some decidedly doggy insight. What mind-bending mysteries await our detective duo?

The puzzling adventure ahead is filled with characters who will help and hinder you as you unwind crimes, demystify mysteries and solve strange situations. Meet some of them below!

Katrielle Layton

The daughter of Professor Hershel Layton, Katrielle, is the heroine of the new Layton series. While spirited, she is also a gentlewomanly chip off the old block. And when it comes to solving crimes, she seems to have a knack of arriving at the truth in spite of positively paltry evidence.

CI_NSwitch_LaytonsMysteryJourneyDeluxeEdition_DividerMiddle.gif
CI_NSwitch_LaytonsMysteryJourneyDeluxeEdition_Sherl_Smaller.jpg

Sherl

Katrielle's conversational – and coincidental – canine companion. The name derives from that of a famous detective, although it's perhaps not completely appropriate for a male dog! Katrielle is one of a handful of people able to talk normally with Sherl, and he frequently offers insight and advice during cases – in addition to not-always-welcome caustic commentary.

CI_NSwitch_LaytonsMysteryJourneyDeluxeEdition_DividerMiddle.gif
CI_NSwitch_LaytonsMysteryJourneyDeluxeEdition_Ernest1.jpg

Ernest Greeves

A young man who requests to become – or rather, insists on becoming – Katrielle's faithful assistant. He ends up paying the price, however, as Katrielle has him running all sorts of errands for her. In fact, he's more of a dogsbody than Sherl.

Emiliana Perfetti

Emiliana is Scotland Yard's number one case analyst and criminal profiler. She regards Katrielle with scorn, and considers her a rival, if not a worthy one.

CI_NSwitch_LaytonsMysteryJourneyDeluxeEdition_DividerMiddle.gif

The Seven Dragons

A group of London's wealthiest and most well-to-do citizens, responsible for helping the city be the best it can be. But as Katrielle solves cases for each of the Dragons, she soon discovers that everything is not as it appears to be…

You can't turn a corner in London without finding a puzzle and this time, there are more puzzles than any other Layton series game so far – over 550 in total, including over 40 brand new brain teasers exclusive to the Deluxe Edition!

LAYTON’S MYSTERY JOURNEY™: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy – Deluxe Edition on Nintendo Switch presents every puzzle in a brand new light. The refined layout takes full advantage of the opportunity to play with others on your TV, while some puzzles have been redesigned to take advantage of button and motion controls. It's the familiar Layton experience, reimagined for Nintendo Switch!

CI_NSwitch_LaytonsMysteryJourneyDeluxeEdition_DividerTop.gif

Through Daily Puzzles, you can download a brand new puzzle every day starting from November 8th*. These puzzles are just for fun, so they won't contribute or detract from your picarat score.

People have been putting three-paged documents on a desk, but a breeze has blown then all over the place. Incredibly, they landed in the same order as they were stacked.

'There were only three sheets on the desk when I left my papers,' states Doc U Mente.

The picture shows the papers after they were scattered, but split up according to who they belong to. So which set of papers are the doc's?

Five addition sums have been drawn on the blackboard. But some of the numbers have been omitted, with either a dotted circle or dotted square in their place.

The numbers 1 to 8 go in the dotted circles, but you can only use each number once. Also reading from left to right along each row of numbers, the digits must appear in ascending order. Which number goes in the '?' space?
