Q. What is a much better idea that a Metroid and Star Fox crossover?

 

A. Proffessor Layton vs Ace Attorney, of course!

Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney Nearing Completion

Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney Nearing Completion

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?

An Infendo movie review: Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva

An Infendo movie review: Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva

A recent arrival for North American home video, Professor Layton’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 you’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.

Professor Layton and the Last Specter review: The weakest game in the series is still a blast to play

Professor Layton and the Last Specter review: The weakest game in the series is still a blast to play

This puzzle adventure had some pretty big shoes to fill, yet I’d hoped Professor Layton and the Last Specter would somehow top the excellence of last year’s Layton game, Unwound Future. That didn’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 that’s where this game stumbles a bit in comparison to the first three Layton games.

Could there be a better crossover adventure mash-up than Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney? I don’t think so.

There may not be any English in the trailer, or much of anything that makes sense to me because I don’t speak the Japanese language, but that isn’t stopping me from getting excited about he upcoming  Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney trailer that has popped up from last weeks TGS. Developer Level-5 has yet to let me down yet, and I don’t expect them to do so with this 3DS title either.

The game will be a crossover between the Professor Layton and Ace Attorney universes, and seeing as how they are two of my favorite franchises on the Nintendo DS, I don’t see how it could go wrong. Well I can think of one way: so far there is no confirmed North American release which means that unless I become fluent in the Japanese language between now and the time game releases next year, I may be out of luck. Hopefully more info about the title will emerge soon, allowing all the English speakers among us in on the fun.

So far all that is know about the game is that it will feature elements from both series, and instead of courtroom trials, the game will have what is known as “Witch Trials.” The game will not take place in either the Professor Layton or Ace Attorney universe, but instead take players to a medieval town known as Labyrinth City that is home to witches and and evil villain know as the Story Teller.

Stay with Infendo as more details about the game emerge, and tell us if a game of this caliber has peeked your puzzle/courtroom interests.

Professor Layton & Phoenix Wright cross-over coming to 3DS

Professor Layton & Phoenix Wright cross-over coming to 3DS

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?

[Thanks, Erik!]
