A welcome return for one of gaming's greatest puzzle franchises, and while it's not quite the best in the series it certainly has the most content.

Level-5 brings the classic 3DS game back, with upgraded visuals and a great control adaptation for both TV and portable Switch modes. It offers plenty of puzzles and minigames, though some of them are confusing.

Refined in every possible way, particularly through more practical puzzles, this Deluxe Edition proves a good introduction to the somehow lighthearted and acidulous investigations of Kat.

Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and The Millionaires' Conspiracy – Deluxe Edition brings less to the Nintendo Switch than the length of its name might suggest. As a remaster of a previously released game, the biggest differences lie in the audiovisual element, but there are new puzzles featured in this version. It's not a very demanding game and doesn't overtake the most significant games in the Layton series but this is a charming and welcoming introduction for those who have never explored the world of these adventure & detective games.

It’s an excellent ‘winding down before bed’ sort of game, and though it might not fully live up to the series legacy, we’re still excited for whatever Level-5 is planning next for Kat.

Layton’s Mystery Journey is a mixed bag of tricks and treats. There’s never a dull moment with the fantastic voice acting and clever script, but without an overarching narrative and below par puzzles, the game’s missing one of its largest draws. The Deluxe Edition for the Switch, though, has a truly unique experience in that it can be enjoyed by many in one fell swoop; a good addition to the family catalogue. For Katrielle, she’s not quite there yet.

If you find yourself craving some puzzles and English accents, Mystery Journey is a game you should look into picking up.
