Professor Layton has always targeted a very niche market and Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires' Conspiracy - Deluxe Edition should fit right in alongside the past games. The lack of an overarching story and any drastic changes in the gameplay is a disappointment, but there's just something charming about this series that hopefully will continue to grow from here after shedding the handheld only roots of the series moving forward.

Moving above the mediocrity that has often plagued the series in the past, Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 is without question the best entry thus far, even if the mini-game and party structure is not for everybody.

Even with plenty of superb 2D platformers releasing in recent years, Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair easily belongs alongside the best the generation has to offer thanks to excellent level design and platforming that is evocative of past classics from the genre.
