Professor Layton VS Ace Attorney Due To Be Localised Next Year?

professor_layton_vs_phoenix wright

Online gaming publication VG247 recently got the opportunity to sit down with Level 5 CEO Akihiro Hino to gain some insight into future projects. During the interview it sounds as though Hino revealed to the publication that Professor Layton VS Ace Attorney is currently being localised and is due next year in the West. Here’s what VG247 had to say.

“Thankfully Hino seemed much happier to discuss the studio’s incoming releases – Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch and Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney – due for release on PS3 and 3DS next year respectively.”

Thanks, Brandon

        1. Somebody is envious because they don’t have the brains to do even ONE puzzle, much less having time because somebody is too busy replying to an awesome game. Seriously, don’t ruin it for us. Don’t waste your time replying to people’s comments, go and play Halo or something you find amusing. I’m really excited for this game and you are ruining it. Hey, let’s play Halo in real life! Oh, look! I have all these Professor Layton and Ace Attorney fans here that want to play. too. We would just LOVE to shoot you with coins with a machine gun you would be too lazy to even make. Go ahead and waste your time on replying to people that you have no care or interest about. BYEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE, xking!!!

  1. this isn’t even shocking, level 5 is very good about bring games over in a timely manner, they’re pretty much my favorite developer at this point, they’ve seriously been on the ball lately, maybe they’ll save AAI2 as well?

    1. Unfortunately…they’re powerless regarding AAI2. That’s up to Capcom. Yes, in a way Capcom’s has some say about PL vs. AA, but the publisher is Level 5 so ultimately it was their call, not Capcom’s. With AAI2 Level 5 wasn’t a part of that at all and I doubt they got enough financial backing to afford it. Level 5 is a much smaller company than Capcom.

    2. I’m sorry, what? ._. Level 5 is horrible about localizing their games in a timely fashion. I am a huge Layton fan and have been getting the games since The Curious Village first came out.

      But each time a Layton game comes out in North America, we are about 2 years behind already. Same goes for White Knight Chronicles and some Dragon Quest games.

      If this game is already on its way, I would attribute that speedy localization to Capcom. They’re actually pretty good about releasing games.

        1. I doubt we’ll see AA:I 2. There’s simply not enough interest for it. The DS is pretty much done and the Investigations series only serves as filler anyway, with no real meat to the overall story or universe its set in. With AA 5 and PL Vs AA set to release soon there’s no need for a filler title.

      1. Really? Come on, just because a game isn’t a shooter doesn’t mean it’s a bad game. I thought that I wouldn’t like the Layton or Ace Attorney games until I tried them, and they became my favorite games on the DS. I love Halo (it fact it’s my 2nd favorite series of all-time) but there is absolutely no way that you can call yourself a gamer just because games exist that aren’t in the only genre that you care about. A TRUE gamer will play a game because it’s fun, not because of it’s graphics or the genre that it’s in.

  2. I remember when the world was so certain we would never see this come over. I think I just heard the entire fandom breathe a sigh of relief.

      1. Why in the world are you doing reading an article about a game that you don’t care about. What is it about you type of people that makes it necessary to come in and try to ruin something that we’re excited about? Both the Layton and Ace Attorney games are amazing, I’d take them over the majority of shooters out there. When push comes to shove I’ll take a game with a great story over one without.

  4. One decrees this good news – AA V PL is the most gorgeous game for the 3DS, and truly the western world deserves a chance to behold it’s glory.

    Make it so, Level 5…and we shall be sure the sales figures shall be doubled!

      1. If you weren’t aware, It’s not capcom handling the game…it’s level 5 themselves.

      1. Hey, look everyone, a 12 year old CoD playing cocksucker! First of all, I have played shooters, I could hand your ass to you on a silver platter in Halo, TF2, Far Cry, Battlefield, you name it. But games like Professor Layton and Phoenix Wright have something that is lacking in EVERY shooter I’ve played. Heart. It’s rare to find a game that displays any true emotion. Hell, I’ve seen 16-bit games display more emotion than almost any 3D game I’ve ever played. And before you go calling me a Fag, like I know you’ll do, how about getting your head out of your ass, picking up a video game and leaving topics like this, which have NOTHING to do with your precious lil shooters, alone?

    1. What’s wrong with you!! You can’t just hate on games you haven’t even tried. They are much more thrilling than FPS for some people. Not everyone likes FPS even if they are good at it. Sometimes it’s not fullfilling. Calling someone gay or a faggot is just plain childish. Not all gamers are guys, there are girls who play these games as well.

  9. Howdy. Simply desired to question a rapid problem.
    I’m piecing together my own blog site and would want
    to understand where by you have ones design? Had been this free
    of charge? Or maybe has been that paid for? I cannot often come across everything as well as this one, therefore ideally you’ll be able to ok, i’ll know.

    Appreciate it. PS, my own apologies. British is just not our
    initial vocabulary.
