Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney Japanese date set [Update]

Level-5 and Capcom crossover out November 29.

Last week, an advertisement in the back of Weekly Famitsu teased a November 29 release date for Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney in Japan. This week’s issue of the magazine confirms the date.

And that’s all. For now, at least.

Thanks, Tale Tale Source.
