But educational achievements aside, Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights looks like it will be a mighty fine game, especially for fans of the Layton series.
Due this September for 3DS, this puzzle-based adventure from Konami is based in 19th century Paris where players will embark on an epic journey to uncover ancient treasures, believed to be that of Louis the XIV. Using ancient maps and gut instincts, players take the role of Dr. Jean-Pierre Lautrec, the smart and logical archaeologist. Also along for the ride is Sophie, his trusty student/assistant, who also serves as his more sociable half. Players will also get a sneak peak of a couple of Dr. Lautrec’s nemesis’ throughout the game – including one of the bosses and Jean and Paul, leaders of the crime syndicate, who are also racing to find the lost treasures.
