The Two Pinnacles of Law and Order Unite Together in Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney on Nintendo 3DS

Join two quintessential gentlemen in action on 28th March for an epic adventure - from London to the mysterious city of Labyrinthia

WINDSOR, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 02/06/14 -- Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, the world of a legendary academic and puzzle sleuth is set to collide with that of a hot-shot, justice loving attorney from 28th March when Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney launches exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. Whether in the heat of a court case, or out on the streets of London or the mystical medieval city of Labyrinthia, prepare to witness two great minds come face to face with magic, witchcraft, and all manner of contradictions to get to the bottom of!

If you are new to either the Professor Layton or Ace Attorney series, this first crossover adventure for the pair combines the investigative and puzzle-solving game elements of Layton with the intense courtroom-based action of a Phoenix Wright title. Both characters are famed for their quick wits and powers of unearthing the truth, and in this joint outing will need to work together to leave no puzzle or court trial unsolved.

The scene is set in Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney when through independent circumstances both Professor Layton and Phoenix Wright - with their respective partners Luke Triton and Maya Fey in tow - cross paths in London with a mysterious woman, Espella Cantabella and subsequently find themselves spirited away to Labyrinthia, a world overseen by the shadowy figure of the Storyteller. This literary master of Labyrinthia has a gift for foreseeing the future, and with every prophecy penned is a tale destined to become reality. Aside from dispelling the people of Labyrinthia's suspicions of foreign visitors, once Layton and Wright get acquainted and both remember their calling they must begin unravelling the unusual events of the city and save Espella from being condemned as a witch.

With the two quintessential gentlemen working in tandem, during court trials Phoenix Wright is able to use Hint Coins - a staple of the Professor Layton series - in order to narrow down options when presenting evidence, or provide helpful hints when cross-examining witnesses. After all, in the Witch Trials of Labyrinthia multiple witnesses to a crime can take to the stand, meaning Wright will need to be on guard to press any witness who is looking suspicious when another testimony is being given. Don't be surprised in addition to see Layton stepping up to raise an objection, both on the side of the defense and the prosecution...
