Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy - Deluxe Edition on the Nintendo Switch is discounted at $32.88 at the time of this posting. The game, a remake of the 3DS version with the same name, released in the U.S. on November 8, 2019. However, days before its release, the game was already discounted at 18% of its original market price of $39.99.
This Layton game features Professor Layton's daughter, Katrielle, and her friends (including a dog named Sherl O.C. Kholmes - see what they did there?) solving puzzles and uncovering mysteries in the busy streets of London, England. For those who aren't familiar with the Layton series, the games typically follow Professor Layton and his detective agency in a somewhat fictionalized version of England, ultimately getting to the bottom of crimes and bringing light to mysteries. These puzzle games, developed by Level-5 Inc. (Yo-kai Watch), ask the player to think through puzzles to move on and complete the game's narrative. Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy turns this formula on its head by introducing Katrielle as the game's new main character as well as treating each mystery as its own independent narrative, without a main overarching storyline.
The new Deluxe Edition includes 50 new outfits (plus all the DLC outfits from the original game) for Katrielle to wear, more than 40 new puzzles, updated HD graphics, and the ability to display the game on a TV - all expansions from the original 3DS version.
Despite all the new features this edition of the game has to offer, discounting a game before its release may not bode well for its success. Or perhaps the deal will make the game all the more successful; only time will tell how well this new Layton game will sell.
You can take advantage of this deal and buy Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy - Deluxe Edition for the Nintendo Switch on Amazon.
