Phoenix Wright and Professor Layton to team up on 3DS

Popular Japanese developers Capcom and Level 5 are teaming up to put their two most brainy protagonists in one adventure, in a new game coming to 3DS.

The game features Capcom’s crime-solving attorney Phoenix Wright, and his bratty sidekick Maya Fey. They meet up with Level 5’s top-hat wearing puzzle maniac Professor Layton, and his naive understudy, Luke.

As you’d expect, the game will feature a mix of fiery courtroom dramatics and tricky head-scratching riddles. Like Professor Layton, the game will feature some animated cartoon scenes, but the game will be written by Ace Attorney director Shu Takumi.

It’s about the most epic crossover since the Jetsons met the Flintsones, or the Rugrats ‘went wild’ with The Wild Thornberrys.

You can see some blurry, off-screen recorded footage over at YouTube (embedded below), and some the game’s first artwork at Andriasang. The game’s official Japanese website is right here.
