A spinoff to the Professor Layton game series, the game focuses on Professor Hershel Layton's son, Inspector Alfendi Layton, and his young assistant, Detective Constable Lucy Baker, who solve seemingly-impossible murder cases for the Scotland Yard.Layton Brothers, unlike the other, more puzzle-oriented entries in the main franchise, plays much more like a visual novel.
