Professor Layton's Daughter Stars in The Newest Game in The Series

Also she has a talking dog called Sharo.


Professor Layton developer Level-5 has announced a new entry in the series called Lady Layton: The Conspiracy of King Millionaire Ariadne. The game is scheduled to launch in Spring 2017 in Japan for 3DS and iOS.

The game was announced during Level-5's Vision 2016 event, where it was also revealed the new protagonist is a female called Catriel Layton. She's the daughter of Professor Hershel Layton, the star of the previous games in the series. You can watch the first trailer below.

As reported by Gematsu, Catriel is described as a "Jack-of-all-trades, riddle-solving detective." She spends her time looking into the strange happenings in London and will take care of anything from missing pets to murdered friends.

Catriel became a detective in order to find her father, who vanished under mysterious circumstances, but has taken to solving all the puzzles London throws her way.

Joining Catriel is a talking dog named Sharo, who helps her figure out puzzles and is generally quite cool. See trailer above for evidence.

The last entry in the core Professor Layton series was 2013's Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy. The good professor also appeared in a crossover game with Capcom's Phoenix Wright.
