Q. What is a much better idea that a Metroid and Star Fox crossover?
A. Proffessor Layton vs Ace Attorney, of course!
A new game on both series has been highly anticipated, but getting both in one game is amazing! Watch the video below, and when you wipe the drool off of your face, feel free to comment!
Back in 2011, there was news of a little game called Professor Layton VS Ace Attorney. A shiver of excitement roared through the fan base. The cheers could be heard across the Nintendoverse…then there was silence…
That silence has finally been broken by Ace Attorney creator Shuu Takumi when he stated that the progress of the upcoming 3DS game is nearing its end. In fact, he is focusing his life on the completion of the game.
“The production of Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney is at its climax. While I still cannot say much, [the game development] is progressing well, so please wait a bit more.”
There is no confirmation that the game will arrive in North America. What are your thoughts on the game, and how do you think the two will mesh together?

A recent arrival for North American home video, Professor Laytonâ€™s movie debut is that rarest of creations: a genuinely good game-based movie that completely captures the charm and appeal of its source material. If youâ€™ve ever played a Layton game and wondered how the story would hold up without the hands-on puzzle gameplay, the answer is: extremely well. These sharply-written characters, taken straight from the games with no alterations, can carry a feature film. Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva is a winner.
The plot, centered around an opera singer whose voice might unlock the secret of eternal life, fits right into the Layton universe and would have made a great entry in the game series. Fans will chuckle at the many references from the franchise: all the expected supporting cast make an appearance, Luke practices his finger-pointing pose, and the closing credits are laid out as if you were watching the two screens of a DS.
This puzzle adventure had some pretty big shoes to fill, yet Iâ€™d hoped Professor Layton and the Last Specter would somehow top the excellence of last yearâ€™s Layton game, Unwound Future. That didnâ€™t happen. What I experienced was 15 hours of great puzzles (with more content available for extended play), charming atmosphere and top-notch production values. The only thing missing was a truly compelling, surprising story to tie it all together, and thatâ€™s where this game stumbles a bit in comparison to the first three Layton games.
This sounds like a very early April Fools’ prank, but Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney is an actual game that Level-5 and Capcom are putting together for the 3DS. I cannot wait for those accusatory fingers come pointing out of my screen, even if we don’t have a clue about gameplay yet! Hopefully the game gets released outside of Japan.
What do you think: Good idea? Bad idea? Awesome idea?
