A Gentleman Always Has More Professor Layton Vs. Ace Attorney Screenshots

By Spencer . September 13, 2012 . 12:30pm

What are Professor Layton and Phoenix Wright doing in the same game? Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney literally centers around a witch trial. A girl is branded as a witch and sentenced to be burned at the stake. It’s up to these two brilliant minds to get to the bottom of the case.


As Professor Layton, you explore the mysterious Labyrinth City, another world not tied to either series, with Luke.

Phoenix Wright’s gameplay mode is like the trial part of the Ace Attorney games.

    …Something about that last screenshot with Phoenix and Maya really rubs me off the wrong way. Those…eyebrows.

  • Littoface

    I love that they kept the styles! And somehow Layton and Luke’s beady little eyes look perfectly fine next to everyone else’s more Anime ones. <3

    I never realized how ziggy zaggy Phoenix’s eyebrows were.

    • Yeah, it’s pretty hard to see on the little DS screens. It’s plainly obvious in official art, though. :D

  • Xmas Lopez

    OH. MY. GOD. I totally forgot that this existed! I desperately hope this comes to the states, unlike the more recent installments of these franchises that have yet to reach the west

  • Helepythia

    Well, I suppose I’m not a gentleman.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    My 3DS will grow into gentleman the moment i get this game on my 3DS lol.^_^

  • Dem distracting Phoenix eyebrow lol XD

  • Ridho Siregar

    That anime scene makes me want an Ace Attorney… anime.

    • 20-minute anime episodes would work really well for Ace Attorney… or they could go the Katanagatari route and do 40-minute episodes, with about 20 min. on exploring and 20 min. on courtroom scenes… :D

      • Ridho Siregar

        How about a movie? But this time, an original story animated movie.

  • Göran Isacson

    I hope that while Layton is the MAIN drive behidn the city-exploration, that Phoenix and Maya get at least SOME action there too. Having the ever so awkward Phoenix interact with various loons outside the court-room is a whole different ballgame than having the smooth professor talk to people, and I hope we get to see both flavors represented here.

  • Oh, so this game has Furigana too! I just hope it’s big enough to be read easily; the Furigana in Digimon World: Re:Digitize can be really vague at times thanks to the native resolution.
