I haven't gotten into any Professor Layton stuff yet, but this has me intrigued.
Yukinori Kitajima, author of Okamiden and the critically acclaimed visual novel 428, created Treasure Report’s scenario. The story begins with the world looking for a wealthy man’s inheritance who left a fortune to find if you can solve his riddles. Newspaper reporter John Evans steps up to the challenge. He’s joined by rookie camerawoman Emily Smith, a mysterious boy named Nino and his dog Poochie.
Famitsu explains the mystery is geared for adults and it has plenty of animated scenes to liven up the plot.
Yasunori Mitsuda is composing the game’s music and Gurihiru studios is handling character design. Treasure Report: The Mechanized Legacy is slated for May 20 in Japan.
