Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney

For a while there, I thought it was entirely possible that Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney would not be released outside of Japan. Sure, Level-5 often takes an unusually long time to announce Western releases for their Layton games, but with so many other niche games not leaving Japan, you can’t blame me for being nervous. It didn’t help that Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies is only getting a digital release, and Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth 2 never got translated at all. But lo and behold, during the latest Nintendo Direct, they finally confirmed that the US (and it turns out also Europe) will be getting this crossover game in 2014.

Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney features the two main characters actually teaming up, not battling, to defend new character Mahoney from accusations that she is a witch. The game takes place in the newly-created Labyrinth City, a medieval setting the characters somehow wind up in after finding a strange book. Layton and Luke must search for clues that Phoenix and Maya use in court, unraveling the mystery along the way.

It’s probably not canon, if you care about that thing, but if you’re a fan of both series, it’s surely something to check out! In the meantime, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies will be out sometime in Q3 or Q4 of 2013 in the US and EU, while Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy will be out November 8, 2013 in EU and sometime in 2014 in the US.
