First Doctor Lautrec trailer comes into focus

It may be in plain ol' 2D, but Konami has released the first teaser for its upcoming Nintendo 3DS puzzler Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights.

Set in the 19th century, Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights stars the titular archaeologist who seeks "living treasures" in the mazelike Paris underground. Along with his assistant Sophie, Lautrec is now after relics once belonging to Louis the XIV, but to find them he'll have to utilize "maps, instinct, and his razor-sharp mind" to overcome the many puzzling obstacles in his path.

The trailer highlights the game's bright, cartoony art style and introduces the key characters in the story, including the two protagonists and the mysterious Knights of the Iron Mask, though we're still waiting for a first glimpse of how the game will capitalize on the platform's unique 3D possibilities.

There is no firm launch date set for the game yet, but Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights is currently targeting a summer release.
