Professor Layton Vs Ace Attorney Announced + Gallery ...And Trailer
...Any objections to this kind of crossover?
10.19.10 - 2:05 PM

The news circled the Internet about a month or so ago that Capcom and Level 5 were working together in some capacity, but fans might not have seen this one coming. At an event this morning in Japan, the two companies made several announcements, including Layton Kyouju vs Gyakuten Saiban (Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney) for the Nintendo 3DS.

Despite the misleading title, it's possible that Hershel Layton and Phoenix Wright actually work together rather than in opposition. They meet in a new world, more specifically in Labyrinth City, a medieval town where witches and magic exist, and reality and illusions meet. The main villain, Story Teller, runs this city and is so named because the stories he writes become reality here. While Layton deals with new puzzles as usual, Phoenix Wright gets accused of witch craft, and so faces a - wait for it - witch trial.

Shu Takumi, Ace Attorney's director, is working on the game's scenario.

Capcom and Level 5 opened up a teaser site to which more content will be added tomorrow, so check to RPGFan back for more details. Until then, we've also got first screens and artwork worth checking out!

UPDATE: We found a trailer! (via Capcom Unity):

This crossover looks rather promising now.
