A new puzzle-based adventure game from Konami is set to hit the 3DS this summer, Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights. Set in 19th-century Paris, intrepid puzzlers will take on the role of archaeologist Jean-Pierre Lautrec, a spelunking treasure hunter who prowls Paris’ old haunts alongside his assistant Sophie. After finding a mysterious map, the two set out in search of treasures from the reign of King Louis XIV on a journey filled with dangers from both the wilds and rivals out to stop the duo.
Players steer Lautrec through the game using reasoning, logic and a keen eye to decipher riddles, solve object-related puzzles and work out the puzzle at the very heart of the map. Thanks to the power of the Nintendo 3DS, the game makes full use of the system’s added dimension to add 3D solutions to key puzzles, including the ability to scrutinize located objects from all directions, or zoom in to highlight a piece of scenery that matches something on the map. Similarly, the linking scenes are also viewed in stunning 3D, with the cartoon links brought to vivid life.
