Step aside, Professor Layton! Doctor Lautrec's here - and he's brought a trailer

See the new trailer right here

Don't think Professor Layton's got the monopoly on the 'eccentric PhD solves clever puzzles' genre. Konami's Dr Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights is coming to 3DS this summer and it's going to be high quality stuff if this new trailer's anything to go by. Check it out.

A network of unexplored catacombs underneath Paris? Lost treasures to find? Miles of sewers? Well, maybe not that last one, but the rest sounds great.

The score is straight out of Indiana Jones, the reverb-soaked voice and Parisian intrigue is straight out of The Da Vinci Code and the premise is straight out of... well, Professor Layton (duh). But who cares if it's as original as salt and vinegar flavoured crisps? This looks like it's going to be a lot of fun and we want something of substance to get our teeth into on 3DS.
