Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney for Nintendo 3DS

This is an interesting one. Level-5 has announced that they are bringing a new game titled Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney (Layton Kyouju vs Gyakuten Saiban in Japanese) to the Nintendo 3DS. The crossover title was announced today as part of Level-5’s Vision press conference.

The company has stated that the game will put players up against puzzles with contradictions – the puzzle aspect coming from the Professor Layton series and the contradictions from the Ace Attorney titles.

The story is said to have Professor Layton and Phoenix Wright finding themselves in a different type of world, where reality and illusions are intertwined. This strange town, known as Labyrinth City, is also home to witches and magic, and lately has had a number of impossible occurrences take place. The villain controlling the city goes by the name of “Story Teller”, and as he writes stories with his pen, they become a reality.

The title will be filled with all new puzzles for Professor Layton to solve, and Phoenix Wright will apparently come to the aid of someone who has been accused of witch craft. I’m sure we’ll find out a lot more about this crossover project in the months to come.

A teaser site has been launched at, but is pretty bare at the moment.
