VANCOUVER, B.C., August 28, 2014 – One is a brilliant archeologist who has traveled the world solving puzzles and unearthing ancient civilizations. The other is a bumbling defense attorney whose sense of justice is matched only by his sense of style. The two seem like an unlikely pair, but with the life of an innocent girl at stake in Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, the two heroes join forces to tackle an enigmatic mystery big enough for both of them. The Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney game launches for Nintendo 3DS on August 29 and combines the puzzle-solving satisfaction of the Professor Layton series with the courtroom drama of the Phoenix Wright franchise.
“This is the whole truth and nothing but the truth: Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney is an absolute treat for long-time fans of both series and newcomers who love puzzles and engaging stories,” said Ron Bertram, Nintendo of Canada’s vice-president and general manager. “The game offers solid proof that the Nintendo 3DS library overflows with exclusive, one-of-a-kind experiences.”
