■ Episode 02

Layton's Mystery Journey: Katrielle and The Millionaires' Conspiracy

“Episode 02” is titled “Song of A Certain Love: Riverside Festival.”

The big Riverside Festival in London was about to begin. It is an event where two young people confess their love from the opposite sides of River Thames. According to the legend that became the origin of this event, there was once a man and woman suffering from unrequited love, and after confessing that love on the opposite sides of the river, each met an unnatural death.

However, during the week of the Riverside Festival, an incident occurs where two young people are really killed on the opposide sides of the river just ahead of the “Riverside Confession Show” on the last day of the event.

The town is in an uproar, but ironically since the scene of the death was so close the legend, it made the festival more exciting as a result.
