The plot of the game focuses on the titular Professor Hershel Layton and his apprentice Luke Triton being called to the unveiling of a so-called "Deathly Mirror", which is supposed to let you speak to the deceased. Upon arriving, the two find that Inspector Chelmey, another recurring character from the series, is also in attendance. The host's butler, Randy, introduces himself and brings the duo to a dining room, where they meet other guests. Murdoch, the host of the unveiling, comes in and introduces himself. As the mirror is unveiled, Feldin, an attendant, questions its validity and mocks Murdoch. Shortly after, Feldin's grandmother appears in the mirror. Later that night, Murdoch is killed in front of the mirror, and it's up to the Professor and Luke to uncover the truth behind the murder.
