Konami has announced a new Professor Layt
-- oh sorry, that's something else. Nope, this is Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights
, a new game for the 3DS
about a French archaeologist that has nothing
to do with any series by Level-5 for Nintendo handhelds. It features Dr. Lautrec and his young assistant, Sophie, exploring 19th century Paris while solving puzzles and deciphering riddles, some of which will take advantage of the 3DS' extra displayed dimension.
The game also has a four-player Treasure Hunt mode to go along with a story that pits Lautrec and Sophie against the Knights of the Iron Mask, a shadowy group which will stop at nothing to hide the secrets of the Mask of Mirac -- no wait, that's something else again
. At any rate, the game is due out sometime this summer, and until then you can check the screenshots below for any similarities to other 3DS titles.
