Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright seeing western release in 2014

During yesterday’s Nintendo Direct, Nintendo of Europe president Satoru Shibata, stylised as Phoenix Wright himself, announced that another 3DS exclusive is making its way westward.

LEVEL-5’s Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney saw release across Japan last year on November 29th, although news regarding localisation has since been silent until the developer’s CEO Akihiro Hino teased the news last month.

Europe will see the game’s arrival in “early 2014,” whilst North America has a far broader “2014” time scale. Though news that we’ll at long last be able to play it will be welcomed by many, especially as Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy marks the final outing of the gentlemanly academic.
