Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright. You heard me.


…I think I just pissed myself with excitement.  

In a move that can only be described as the most awesome idea in the history of franchise mash-ups, two giants of portable gaming will collide on the 3DS.

Phoenix Wright in one corner, and Professor Layton in the other. 


Little about the game is currently known, but the gist of the story is that Phoenix must defend a client accused of being a witch, while in the shadows exists a person who’s writings magically come to life.  The title is listed as “Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney” so it appears as though the two will do battle in the courtroom.  Fanboy glee to ensue.

Since the title has just been announced in Japan, who knows how long it will take to reach US shores.  All the same, this announcement will be huge for fans of the series, and will be an excellent reason to own a 3DS.


Wow, that is a fantastic idea. So simple too! A lawyer and a detective working together. I mean, the only slow parts of Pheonix Wright games were the exploring and searching for clues sections. But the puzzle side of Professor Layton remedies that. And the weaker part of Professor Layton games was always the overarching story, which is what Pheonix Wright excels at. This is a match made in heaven.
