The lights are on
The crossover title starring two of handheld gaming's biggest heroes was announced a long time ago. Ever since, the game's exact fate outside of Japan has been ambiguous. Today, Nintendo revealed its plans to release Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright on August 29.
The puzzle/courtroom hybrid is already out in Japan, and now English-speaking fans can enjoy this team-up between the attorney Phoenix Wright and the genius professor Hershel Layton (and their respective sidekicks, Maya and Luke). Get a taste of the "action" (i.e. text-scrolling and puzzle-solving) in the trailer below.
