Best Nintendo Games List – #15 Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney

Developers: Level-5, Capcom

Publisher: Nintendo

Platform: Nintendo 3DS

Release Date: August 29, 2014

When the best of modern Capcom meets the best of Level-5, magic happens. Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney combines the gameplay elements of both series while treating each IP with respect. Gameplay is split into two segments. Adventure sections have players looking around their surroundings for clues similar to Professor Layton games of past while encountering puzzles or mind teasers to find the answers behind the mystery of Labyrinthia that both parties has been transported to.

Phoenix Wright brings his skill to the Witch Trial sections, in which he must cross-examine as a defense attorney similar to games within his series. Contradictions in statements must be presented with proof, which can become more troublesome to the crew when mob trials are engaged. You have to know when the right time is to present your case, or else it’s game over. The supernatural elements tie into both series’ well, making Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney a match made for excellence.
