Ace Attorney 5 coming to 3DS

Layton vs. Ace Attorney release date hinted

That big Capcom scoop teased in Famitsu last week? Double the Ace Attorney! This week’s issue has new details on Ace Attorney 5 and Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney.

Ace Attorney 5

The fifth installment in the Ace Attorney series will come to 3DS. The game was first announced in January without a platform.

Phoenix Wright, known as Ryuichi Naruhodo in Japan, is the hero of this sequel. He is working alongside a new partner – a mystery girl in yellow clothes – said to be one of the game’s key characters.

Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney

On the back of this week’s issue is an ad for Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney containing the numbers “6211.” This is said to be a hint at the game’s release date. When flipped in reverse, it reads “1129,” suggesting a street date of November 29. Famitsu promises an official solution to this “mystery” in next week’s issue.
