Doctor Lautrec challenges Layton in September

Konami's investigative puzzler for 3DS on track for summer release

Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights will be out in US in September.


This narrows down the previously vague release date of 'summer' where the UK date still stands, although Japan has been given an even more precise date of July 7, reports Siliconera.

Despite visual similarities, Doctor Lautrec's game is very different to Professor Layton. Konami's investigative quest will give you full control over Lautrec as he wanders around 19th century Paris attempting to find treasure in caves.

There are also battles to get stuck into which have you using spirits that come in a variety of forms, including human, beast and bird types. You can give these spirits orders using a circular command pad on the lower screen.

Check out a trailer through here.
