E3 2014: Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney to Finally Have Its Day in North America

Posted by Tim Latshaw

Slated for a 29th August release

One of our time's greatest mysteries has finally been solved: When in the blue-suited, top-hatted blazes will Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney finally make it to North America!?

The answer, dear friends, came following the Nintendo Digital Event. North American puzzle-lovers can look forward to Level-5 and Capcom's cross-collaboration on 29th August. You might want to try tying up any loose cases or Azran legacies before then.

The E3 trailer for the game can be viewed below. Some might find a contradiction in it; notably that some of the voice actors commonly known to North American players are not used. Whether this means the more familiar voices will not make it to the final product is yet to be known.

Regardless, we considered this meeting of gentlemanly minds an "utterly charming, enjoyable experience" in our review. Do you plan on picking this crossover up over the summer?

While this is nice, I was hoping for more information on the new Phoenix Wright entry.

They're releasing these games too fast for me :( I still need to get through the mainline Ace Attorney titles and waiting for Capcom so I can finish that trilogy

Luke has the UK voice actor here.
Also, some names and words are not localized from UK to USA. I'm hoping they localize better this time. Prof. Layton and the Azran Legacies had many errors... or perhaps they just didn't localize it at all.

Whatever. I WANT this game no matter what.

The number one reason I bought a 3DS as soon as I did. I first watched the teaser on October 20, 2010 and have ached so badly for this. All I can say is it's about bloody time! Cannot wait. Finally!

Is it a physical or digital only release? Seems like Capcom has been on a digital only kick for these niche games for a while now.

I just started the series this year and just beat the first two games a month or so ago. I'm waiting for the trilogy to get localized before I play the 3rd.

Ah, I see. Unfortunately, that comes out this winter, which will be quite the wait. You can probably still play this game without playing the full trilogy and you'll be fine. The third one is the best, and it will be worth your wait.
