[N-Direct] Miscellaneous announcements from the September 13th/14th presentation

In this post, we’re going to put all the “minor” announcements from the latest Nintendo Direct presentation (September 13th/14th), that we didn’t deem important enough to warrant a separate post (either because nothing really new was shown, or there simply isn’t anything to say). It’s possible this post will end up with lots of videos, so if you’re on mobile… you’ve been warned!

Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy

Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy was quickly mentioned in the Nintendo Direct, but nothing really new was shown.

It will be available as a Download Code from select retailers (including the Nintendo eShop, most likely).

Here’s the latest screenshots for the game:
