Professor Layton Vs. Ace Attorney Has Downloadable Director’s Cut [Update]

Update: An early version of this story said this was an unreleased scenario based on early leaks. A more detailed report explains this an unedited script of the original story. Kind of like a Director’s Cut. The DLC will also unlock a gallery of outtakes from the original script.


Level-5 will release Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney in Japan on November 29. After the game comes out, Level-5 will release downloadable content for the game including an unreleased unedited scenario from Ace Attorney writer Shu Takumi.


Players will be able to play the extra storyline after downloading it and clearing Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney. A gallery with outtakes and a puzzle solving gameplay mode.

    Capcom, who likes to put DLC on everyone.
    Level-5 who has never done DLC before.

    Who knows if it’ll be free or costs money.

    • Level-5 HAS done DLC before. White Knight Chronicles and Ni No Kuni did it.

    I wanted to say something about the DLC, but I looked at that cover and all thoughts were immediately replaced with, “Man, what an awesome cover”.

    You win this round Level5/Capcom.

     Now THAT wasn’t what I was expecting. Cut content that WASN’T ever going to be included in the main game because it goes against the story, made available as DLC is a… novel idea, at the very least. I’m looking forward to see if this might even start a trend- no need to bemoan the fact you made a whole level that serves no purpose after the boss nixed this and that plot development- now we just slap that sucker in as DLC!
