Review: Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney

By Sean Booker

Briefly I would like to point out my history with both franchises to better help inform my perspective on this crossover. I have completed every Professor Layton title and only played through the first Phoenix Wright game. Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney is a perfect example of a crossover game done right. You easily get the best elements of the two series along with a ton of fan service while each benefits from the others’ inclusion. The story is delightfully dark which raises the stakes for our protagonists. There’s a lot of great twists and turns and some incredibly powerful cliffhangers that will shock and excite the player. Layton/Wright is a must play game for fans of either franchise. Professor Layton, along with his apprentice Luke, and Phoenix Wright, along with his assistant Maya, are transported to the mysterious town of Labyrinthia - a world filled with witches...
