According to Siliconera, Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney will be released in Japan on the 29th November on Nintendo 3DS. There has yet to be any confirmation of a localized version coming to Europe. Professor Layton’s “hint” in last week’s issue of Famitsu was about Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney’s release date. Level-5 is developing and publishing the title in Japan.
Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney will feature a combination of gameplay elements from both the Professor Layton and Ace Attorney series. As Professor Layton, the player will face off against various puzzles whilst trying to solve the mystery of Labyrinth City. As Phoenix Wright, players will take part in ‘Witch Trials’ using evidence and wits to find contradictions in witness statements and prove the innocence of his client.
