Last year Level-5 brought back a beloved series with Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and The Millionaires’ Conspiracy for mobile and the Nintendo 3DS, and we found it to be a fun entry let down by some iffy progression in our review. If you were interested in checking it out you might want to wait little longer, as a Japanese re-release of the game has been confirmed for the Nintendo Switch.

The latest issue of Famitsu (via Gematsu) confirms that the re-release will launch August 9th in the region with the added “DX” subtitle. One pretty huge change from previous releases is that you’ll be able to play it entirely with a controller, with the traditional touch controls being reserved for un-docked play.

Given that the game was already developed with high-res assets in mind thanks to the mobile version, this port seemed inevitable in a way. We’ll be sure to let you know if a western release is confirmed!

Always excited to see something a little bit different, Tom is ready to report on games of all shapes and sizes, whether they be wonderful or weird (or, better yet, both.) Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
