Although the trailer is in Japanese, the gameplay footage makes it evident that the title will combine the defining elements from each of the two franchises.

Players will be required to investigate clues and solve different kinds of puzzles while playing as Professor Layton and Luke, while the other part of the game will require the same courtroom interrogations and clue matching that has defined the Ace Attorney series.

Players will alternate between Layton and Phoenix Wright.

According to CVG, the game's story will see Professor Layton and Phoenix Wright descend on the medieval town of Labyrinth City, where villain ruler Story Teller is able to create anything he wants simply by writing it down.

Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney is due out in Japan on November 29 for the 3DS. There are currently no details about a Western release for the game.
