Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney details revealed

Japanese gaming news source Famitsu have taken a closer look at upcoming Capcom/Level-5 crossover title Layton-kyouju vs. Gyakuten Saiban (Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney – English title tba). In addition to a few new screenshots, a few details about how the game works have been revealed.

Professor Layton and Ace Attorney’s Phoenix Wright cross paths in the mysterious Labyrinth City, in a world where everyone believes in magic, and witches are tried in public courts. Phoenix finds himself defending a girl (called Mahoney in Japanese) who is accused of witchcraft. As Ace Attorney fans will find familiar, Phoenix has to cross-examine multiple witnesses. However, in this game, during cross-examinations odd things can occur – intruders arrive to interrupt proceedings, and witnesses gang up together to hold strategy meetings. It’s unclear how far your experience of previous Ace Attorney games will carry you in this new, strange environment.

Still to be confirmed is Professor Layton’s role in the game, though you can bet it will involve the solving of puzzles. For the moment, here are some screenshots for you to check out:
