Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights, a puzzle-based adventure game, has been announced by Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH.

Here are some of the details from the press release posted on MCV:

Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights centres on a treasure map that details a series of locations the player must visit as the game progresses. Doctor Lautrec, an archaeology professor, is a combative figure whose love of mysteries and history draw him to follow the many instructions the ancient map details. Lautrec is not a popular man at the University where he teaches, with his unorthodox attitudes also reflected in his less than moral ways of tackling puzzles. Thankfully, he is assisted by a young, eager student called Sophie who uses the adventure to learn from the master and to temper his… excesses.

As such, the player steers 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.

In total, Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights offers hours of puzzling and exploration, with a rich cast of supporting characters on hand to both assist and hinder Lautrec’s quest. As the Doctor and Sophie search for clues, rival Professors will attempt to sabotage his mission, while an elegant scholar is revealed to be a member of a notorious crime gang. And, even then, that’s just the start of the many perils that Lautrec and Sophie find themselves facing…

With the newly announced 3DS title “Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights” comes new details about the game as well as a newly launched official Japanese website (http://www.konami.jp/gs/game/lautrec/).

We know that we can expect to see the game sometime in Spring 2011 in Japan, and comparisons are already being made to the Professor Layton series – due to Lautrec’s top hat, young companion, and love of mysteries.

The game will be set in 19th century Paris and will have players controlling archaeologist Doctor Lautrec along with his young assistant, Sophie, who is a university student. Together they search for treasure in and around mystery-filled undergrounds of the city.

Gameplay will apparently consist of four basic types: Event, Battle, Exploration, and Conversation. Exploration will take place on the top screen of the 3DS, with a map displayed on the bottom screen. Not much is known about the other gameplay types, but the Conversation and Event components seemingly make use of full voice.
