Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright comes west in 2014

3DS crossover game announced in 2010 and released in Japan last year

Nintendo has announced that Professor Layton Vs Phoenix Wright will launch in Europe in early 2014 and in the US next year.

The 3DS crossover from Level 5 and Capcom was announced in October 2010 and released in Japan in November 2012, making its chart debut at No.2.


The game places Layton and Wright in Labyrinth City, a medieval setting ruled by a villain called Story Teller and inhabited by witches who hide in the shadows.

When the Story Teller writes things with his pen they become reality in the world. Layton has to make sense of it all by solving puzzles, while Wright has to defend a person who has been accused of witchcraft.
