Two of the biggest names on Nintendo hardware joining forces might seem like a no-brainer and a licence to print money, but this credible cross-over isn’t your typical lazy cash-grab; it manages to bring together these two disparate characters in what is actually an intriguing and captivating storyline.
It’s also remarkable how effectively Layton developer Level 5 has been able to combine the two gameplay styles so impressively; the Professor’s signature puzzle solving is there to task your brain, while Wright’s famously tense courtroom segments tax your grey matter – and nerves – in other fiendish ways. There was always the worry that the two styles wouldn’t graft, but that thankfully isn’t the case.
The production values in Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney are also sky-high, with excellent hand-drawn sections rubbing shoulders with eye-catching 3D visuals. This is an adventure quite unlike any other, and a definite must for fans of either series, or adventure titles in general.
