Shuu Takumi states that the upcoming 3DS crossover adventure game is still in development.
The last time gamers heard news about the upcoming Phoenix Wright/Professor Layton crossover was way back in 2011. Despite the long silence, Ace Attorney creator Shuu Takumi has said that the development process of the upcoming 3DS adventure game Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney was still going fine and, in fact, was nearing its end.
According to a Famitsu interview (via Andriasang) featuring Takumi and Ace Attorney movie director Takashi Miike, Takumi said that his life is totally focused on completing the game. "The production of Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney is at its climax. While I still cannot say much, [the game development] is progressing well, so please wait a bit more."
On a related note, both Takumi and Miike discussed the possibilities of a sequel to the Ace Attorney movie. Miike said that he would rather use film as a medium to show sides of the story that weren't present in the games, provided he has full creative reign over the possible sequel.
Are these games any good? I have never seen any gameplay or screenshots other than the guy pointing his finger at whoever is standing closest to him. I am thinking it's a game about pointing at everyone you can. Nah, but for real, what are the games like. I assume they must be good because I see the pointing pictures all the time.
@tightwad34 Ace Attorney is great fun. The gameplay follows something similar to your a court room drama. A crime gets committed, you investigate and look for clues and then bring your evidence to the court room.
You opposition is usually a prosecutor and you object/ contradict his claims using evidence and logic. You can try out the first one for cheap on your iphone FYI. :)
Haven't played a professor layton game but absolutely love the ace attorney series. Please localize THIS and Miles Edgeworth 2.
as long as the second ace attorney movie doesnt focus on PW2 (which was the butt of the entire series) id love to see what the team of miike and takumi can do.
Some people say JFA was the worst game, but I think it's the 2nd best besides AAIME. Even though it only had 4 cases. The 3rd case was great and the 4th case was in the top 3 cases ever
Hmm usually a "versus" is a nice way of saying we've run out of ideas to do anything individually, let's hope this is up to scratch.
I'm curious how this is gonna play out. It's hard to build something around these two characters. For sure, it will be mind bending but how's the story gonna play out??
I'm super excited about this, though I don't think a western release has been formally announced... still, it'll give me a chance to catch up on all the Layton games.
