Hot on the heels of yesterday’s surprise announcement from Capcom and Level 5 that Professor Layton and Phoenix Wright would be teaming up on Nintendo’s 3DS in Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney, media and information has been pouring out of Japan. 

The official site for the project has been opened and it gives some insight on the storyline direction of the title. The site, which you can find here if you are fluent in Japanese, sets up the premise as the following: both Professor Layton and Phoenix Wright have “wandered” into the world of Labyrinth City and must out their minds together to challenge the world’s puzzles and contraptions. The site also gives background information on both characters and their respective series.

The trailer for the title that was shown at Level 5‘s press conference which outed the title has made its way public as well. The trailer, shown below, has had user created subtitles added to it which give English-speaking gamers a clue as to what is happening. It looks as though this one is going to be quite an extensive adventure which will hopefully be brought over seas some time in the future.
