Excavating the First Dr Lautrec 3DS Screenshots

Top hat doctor

Konami's Dr Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights for 3DS caused quite a stir with its unveiling in Famitsu this week, and the first screenshots are now here to give you a better feel for the archaeological title.

Set in 19th Century Paris, you control the genius archaeologist Dr Lautrec, who must explore the network of tunnels below the city in order, we assume, to solve an enormous mystery.

The stills show a combination of animated cutscenes and isometric exploration sections, with one screen showing RPG-style statistics and a monkey clinging to the Doctor's shoulder.

That noise you hear is the sound of a deal being sealed. Dr Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights is due to land on 3DS in Spring 2011.
