THIS NEWS MADE MY DAY!

I rolled over in bed this morning and checked tweets on my phone and thought twitter was trolling me when it seemingly erupted in "OMG LAYTON VS WRIGHT" spam an hour prior. But I looked it up and lo and behold, it was true.

I've never really considered the idea of the two together since... well, they're from different companies and all, but omg I can't wait! They're definitely gonna fit so well together! And it's young!Phoenix so Maya's there and sdkljfses. there is not enough keyboard spam to contain my excitement. n__n I was wary on getting a 3DS and knew I could hold off for quite a while but I know now that the day this game comes out is the day I buy the 3DS. ♥

I want it. Now. Ooooh god, two of my (and lots of people's) favourite DS series together. And their gameplay systems fit really well so honestly, this game is going to sell all the 3DS's Zelda and Paper Mario 3 don't.

The soundtrack. I WANT it. *Thinks of a mixture between Cornered + puzzle theme for the final examination*

Some info from the Spanish website Meristation:

- Players need to complete puzzles with contradictions
- Professor Layton and Phoenix Wright are in a different world
- Both come to Labyrinth City, a medieval city
- Reality and illusions are intertwined in this world
- City is home to witches who hide in the shadows, magic is real
- Impossible occurrences have happened in the town lately
- City controlled by a villain, Story Teller
- What Story Teller writers with his pen becomes reality as the future of the world
- Layton takes on new puzzles
- Person who wants Phoenix Wright’s help has been accused of witch craft
- “Majo Saiban” (“Witch Trial”) is the trial that takes place in the world
- No release date
- Level-5 publishing

A week and half or so ago I was talking to my brother about what I neat idea it would be. And then bam here comes the news.

I believe you have me to thank for this. lol


I'm very intrigued by this. I like both. They're sorta similar in how.... you move around the world and investigate I guess. Very interested to see how puzzles and courtroom battles meld together.

Haha, I was so excited by the news when I first heard it that I made such an exclamation. In the end my brother came over and asked me what's wrong xD

I wonder how the puzzles and trial would go. The biggest issue I have is the music and the voices - I HOPE THERE'S PW-BASED MUSIC, like trial music <3333 and Layton music of course, but I'm a bigger AA fan than that of a PL fan, so...
And I wonder what Maya sounds like too - we only heard her eating... burgers (???) and that's it.

I don;t even own any of the games in any of these series, and I feel excited. XD NOW I MUST GET THEM. But I suppose I'll have to get all the others ones before the crossover one...T__T

I refuse to have an opinion on it. Crossovers always make me nervous. HOWEVER, I will be picking it up n_n

God I am SO glad everyone has the same reaction I have towards the game. I was scared everybody would have disapproved, but I feel like this game it going to be interesting.

I love Level 5 and the Layton series for their incredible style, and I have faith in Capcom seeing as they are practically the masters at combining forces with other great teams to make games.

Yeah, I saw this today and I thought it was amazing... I've never played a Layton game but I've heard great things and I'm a huge PW fan... I'll probably try and pick up a Professor Layton game to get the feel of it before this comes out... assuming they plan to release it in the US.

my head exploded. this game is going to be the best thing of all time.

I saw the title and thought "Layton/Scribblers + Phoenix Wright?!" and was like "WHAT THE TROLL" when I saw it. whooaaaa

AND IT'S GOOD OL' WRIGHT AGAIN. My day has been made. Multiple times.

I also want to see Phoenix Wright in Level-5's epic animation sequences. Those are the best things out of Layton games, and NICK GETS THEM

+ maya eats a hamburger. my day has been made for the third time in five minutes.

This is definatelly the game that i'm most hyped about the 3ds for. Though I'm really surprised that Level 5 are the main team behind it, seeing as CAPCOM seems to be the king of crossovers.
I'm hoping that they will put in some other characters too. I really want to see other wright characters in a full cutscene. XD
haha i guess this will more than make up for the fact that wright wont be in MvC3.

You can hear her when she talks to Luke in the library ;D

I AM SO buying the game I could actually stole my parents money to give it to Capcom and Level 5 so they would give the game to me NAO. /shot xD

Seriouslyyy, this is like, I mean, the BESTEST IDEA EVAH.
However, is it really a Versus ? Or are Phoenix and Layton teaming up ?
Ffff. ANYWHO. Must.Buy. D;

3DS game of the year.

Honestly waiting for the English release of this game is going to be torture.

My head exploded on the disbelief of how this could possibly unfold.

I mean holy mackerel! It's the biggest piece of mindcruck I've heard. (This isn't a bad thing.) I wanna know how this man from the mid-21st century ends up with some guy from the 20th. I'd be more mindboggled if these events are canon (dear Capcom and Level-5, despite how ridiculous these happenings are, please say yes).

Though, why young!Luke? :(

Is it just me who isn't excited?

I love the ace attorney games but this crossover idea sounds garbage.

I was hoping Gyakuten XX was going to be GS5.

I was pleasantly surprised.

Between this and Investigations 2, I simply cannot wait. It drives me mad!

Here's something you all need to know. Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney has only been announced for Japan. According to Capcom-Unity, Capcom's official forums, they're wanting people to voice their desire for the game to be brought to North America & Europe by leaving a comment in this blog post. I've already left mine (I'm Deva-Princess on there). There's already 1014 comments, but more couldn't hurt.

The thing about Maya's voice is...that's the Jap version. The English dub is bound to have a... no wait, it's Level-5. Obviously it'll be good. I mean, Layton characters were pretty decent, no?

Cherrim

I'm sure they'll pick someone just fine. :/ They are really good with casting.

Apparently they even cast a different Luke for the Layton games over in the UK because the American Luke VA had such a horrible accent that it would've driven Brits nuts. Or so I hear, anyway, because his accent has always sounded fine to me. XD; But if that's true, it shows they definitely care about suitable voices and they wouldn't let this slide, even if CAPCOM likes to half-ass the voice acting in the AA games. (I am not a fan of most of the "OBJECTION!!!"s. D:)

Ninja Caterpie
October 20th, 2010, 10:20 PM
Yeah, that's why I sorta went back on my own point. Level-5 is really good with picking VAs. I mean, I've never heard Maya's voice, but that sounded perfect in the trailer.

and i like the OBJECTION!s and stuff (except maybe Alba's)...

I can't wait for this game. I love both of the series so far. Still have to get Miles Edgworth one come to think of it.

Just like KH:BBs made me buy a new psp after my old one broke this will make me buy the 3ds just so I can enjoy this.

Holy crap. I am speechless. I love the music near the end, too. It's so Layton-ey.

Well sweeties, all I have to say is this.

NEED NOW!

I love the Ace Attorney series and Prof Layton series, and I'm a sucker for crossovers. Day 1 purchase for me, sweeties.
