The highly anticipated Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney has gotten a launch trailer in its recent release on November 29th. The trailer shows Phoenix Wright handling court cases while trying to down knight, while Professor Layton being calm in the face of danger as usual. There is still not word of a English localization but the possibility of it happening isn’t too far off since all Layton and Ace Attorney games have been localized, including Ace Attorney 5 in the future, with the exception of Ace Attorney Investigations 2
The setting for Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney is about a place called, Labyrinth City, where Phoenix Wright comes to the defense of a young girl who is accused of witchcraft. Phoenix Wright will question witness and discover false testimony, while Professor Layton goes around talking to people and solving puzzles to assist Phoenix Wright in court cases. In the trailer, it seems there will be new game play aspects, such as Phoenix Wright questioning multiple witnesses instead of only one. Nothing much else known as the moment but one thing’s for sure, there will be a lot of finger pointing.
