Do you like solving intricate puzzles? How about pointing at people screaming “OBJECTION!!!”? Then, boy, do I have something for you.
Level-5 has released a trailer of Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney for the 3DS. You don’t know who Professor Layton or Ace Attorney are? First off- I’m disappointed in you. But I digress. Professor Layton is an interesting little DS game where you wrack your brain with increasingly difficult puzzles and ultimately solve the big mystery Professor Layton is working on. It’s a wittier Nancy Drew game with more top hats. Ace Attorney is better known as Phoenix Wright, a game where you work behind investigating crimes as well as going through trial.
As the trailer shows us, Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney will take us toLabyrinthCity, a medieval location where our protagonists will encounter an witch named Mahoney and a villain who can seemingly alter reality his pen.
It’s almost been a year since Level-5 teased eager fans with the teaser reveal of its Professor Layton and Phoenix Wright crossover. People were beginning to wonder if the game was ever actually coming out and now law abiding puzzle fans such as myself are in for a treat. A Japanese release has been confirmed for 2012, but the westerners only have a promise that an English release will be in store.
