While Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights will not be gracing the 3DS for some time, Konami have decided to release the first developer diary labeled “Birth of a New World” for the anticipated mystery title. In the clip, Producer and Director Noraiki Okamura sets the scene for the game and explains a bit of the story and locales featured with a bit of information on Lautrec’s motives for beginning this quest as well as showing off the beautiful recreation of Paris and the underground caverns players will explore.
I know many have deemed this title to be a “Layton Clone”, which it very well might be, but I am starting to really take up interest on what is looking to be a fantastic mystery with a quite a vivid world to explore. You can check out the developer diary for yourself below. So what do you think so far, do you think Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights can stand on it’s own?
