Konami Wants You to Meet Doctor Lautrec on 3DS

Professor Layton's French cousin, perhaps

Just because 3DS is seeing an outing from the top hat professor in the form of Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle doesn't mean that Konami won't try to steal a little of the astute one's thunder.

This week's Famitsu magazine contains a reveal of Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights, an archaeology-themed game starring a Doctor wearing a top hat. Although little was revealed about the overall style of gameplay, Famitsu reveals the game will feature four varying gameplay modes: events, battle, exploration and conversation.

It's not Konami's only 3DS title either, with Asphalt 3D due for release shortly after the machine launches.
