Case 1 Summary: “The Hand That Feeds”
One of the hands of Big Ben – said to be a symbol of London – has been stolen! A police officer patrolling the area has confirmed that the clock hand was intact as of around 11:50 p.m. but was discovered missing at 6:00 a.m. the next morning. Ambassador Fouxdufàfà will visit London from a neighboring country the following day and is scheduled to receive a pendant that resembles the clock as proof of goodwill. If Big Ben is not in its complete state at that time, it will affect the country’s good name. The missing clock hand must be recovered before the press conference begins! Scotland Yard Inspector Hastings has requested that Katrielle Layton investigate the incident.

Available on iOS, Android and 3DS, Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy has been featured in a number of outlets – including Nintendo Life, My Nintendo News, Perfectly Nintendo, Destructoid, Pocket Gamer, and TouchArcade.
