Professor Layton and the Lawyer Crossover

In a surprise announcement at this year's Level-5 Vision press event, Level-5 announced Layton Kyouju vs Gyakuten Saiban, or in English, Professor Layton Vs. Ace Attorney, a collaboration between Level-5's Layton team and the Ace Attorney team from Capcom.

The adventure stars both Professor Layton and Phoenix Wright, along with their helpful assistants, as they end up within a new world together. The group enters a medieval place named Labyrinth City, where magic and witches exist and illusions distort reality. Together, the two will face off against the Story Teller, a writer whose magical pen brings what he writes to life. However, will the duo be able to work together, or will they end up bitter rivals in the new world?

It appears that the game will be split between game elements from both series. Professor Layton will face a number of puzzles to solve within Labyrinth City, whereas Phoenix Wright will have to focus on a "Witch Trial" to defend someone who is accused of witchcraft.

The scenario is being written by Ace Attorney designer
Shu Takumi, so expect some of the awesome plot workings from that series to be commonplace in this crossover project. Furthermore, as the trailer demonstrates, the game will contain fully-animated cutscenes which should only make the story all the more delectable to experience.

Professor Layton VS. Ace Attorney will be releasing for 3DS, but the date has not been discussed.
