Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney CoverProfessor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney
3DS
Release Date: August 29th, 2014
Purchased at: Amazon (Online – $30)

The unbelievable crossover game is finally available in the United States, and you bet I was there on day one to pick up the next adventure in Professor Hershel Layton’s story! Teaming up with Phoenix Wright is certainly strange to think about, but I feel like it could actually work. I’ve played a few hours or so of the game so far, and can say that it certainly feels like a Layton game, but I haven’t really had the chance to interact with Phoenix yet to see how he’s side will pan out. Either way, the story so far is good, the visuals are spot on, and I’m already getting hooked. Here’s to another grand adventure!

Laters,

Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney ArtNearly five years have passed since we took on the role of Phoenix Wright, the up-and-coming defense attorney that shook the legal world back in 2005 on the Nintendo DS (2001 on the Game Boy Advance in Japan). Only a few months back we were graced with the announcement of a brand new Ace Attorney game from Capcom. Though Phoenix held his own in the fighting ring a la Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, getting back in the courtroom is where he’s most comfortable; cross-examining witnesses, finding contradictions, and spouting out catchphrase after catchphrase.
