Layton-clone Doctor Lautrec gets a trailer

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!

In all seriousness, this ought to be a satisfactory time-waster until Level-5 decides to localize the rest of the Layton series. For now, hit the link below to enjoy the trailer as well as batch of screen grabs.
