Japan: Professor Layton Anime Coming In Spring Starring Professor’s Daughter

Layton Mystery Detective Agency: Kat’s Mystery-Solving Files is heading to Japan. The anime show will debut this spring and stars Katrielle “Kat” Layton, daughter of Professor Hershel Layton. As you would expect the anime is based on Level 5’s Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy.

Like the game, the anime will be set in London and follow Katrielle as she solves mysteries with her talking dog Sherl. The magazine describes the anime as having a “high-speed comical mystery-solving story” and also shows the silhouette of a character resembling Professor Layton.



  1. Still haven’t played the game even though I’m a huge Layton fan. I just can’t get myself interested with both the change of protagonist and the fact it’s multiple smaller cases, which I didn’t enjoy in Azran Legacy.
