This game made the top 10 in Club Nintendo's Fan Faves 2014 survey! Learn more >
Two of gaming's biggest sleuths team up to solve the most puzzling mystery they have ever encountered. For the first time ever, the mind-bending puzzles of the Professor Layton series meet the courtroom drama of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney.
- Follow Professor Layton and Phoenix Wright as they are transported from London to the mystical city of Labyrinthia, where they must help Espella Cantabella, a girl accused of being a witch.
- Two different game-play styles work together in unexpected ways. Solve puzzles familiar to fans of the Professor Layton series in Adventure mode to move the story forward, and then cross-examine witnesses as Phoenix Wright in Trial mode.
- Phoenix Wright must be on his toes for group cross-examinations. Pit one person's testimony against another's to get the story straight, and then literally rewrite history alongside the city's greatest puzzle-solving duo.
- Listen to the gorgeous musical score by the original composers from both series, combining the vivid sounds of Professor Layton with the dramatic themes of the Phoenix Wright games.
