Professor Layton has a rather dashing mustachioed doppelgänger in Doctor Lautrec, who's bringing his own brand of puzzle-solving escapades to the 3DS this summer.
Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights will see the titular doctor and his young protégée Sophie searching for the lost treasure of Louis XIV. There will be various logic puzzles as well as lovely hand-drawn cutscenes strewn about. In other words, exactly like a Layton game!
