Try Layton’s Mystery Journey for free

It seems Level-5 finally saw some sense: the first chapter of the latest Layton game featuring Hershel Layton’s daughter is free on mobile!

A couple of months ago Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaire’s Conspiracy was released in the App Store and Google Play Store. Afterward the game was released on the 3DS too, but the deal to buy it as a mobile game was a good one.

Still, when I wrote about it before, I did wonder if the price wouldn’t be too high to attract people who loved playing Professor Layton on their kids DS. You see, I know some friends and colleagues who enjoyed Layton’s puzzles back in the 90’s.  They didn’t need to buy a gaming device, their kids had one they could use.


Now, the threshold to buy a 3DS to specifically play the Layton’s games is too high. But playing the game on mobile is a great substitute! Charging people $15 for a mobile game is too much for many without being able to give the game a go first.

And now, Level 5 made a starter kit to try for free. And if you like what you see, you can still buy the full game. Take care to download the starter kit, it’s a separate entry in the App Store and the Google Play Store. And see for yourself if this captures the Layton spirit.
