Finally, we get to see some gameplay footage of Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney in this new trailer straight from Japan!.. Via youtube.
We get a glimpse of the court room gameplay which just looks like a (not so stellar) 3D rendition of the game sprites from previous Ace Attorney games. Goofy characters and striking soundeffects are still present and will hopefully bring the same amount of fun insanity that PW games are known for. With everything being done in 3D, this allows for a more dynamic view when s*** starts to go down.
Layton appears near the end of the trailer and we also see a bit of the Layton style gameplay as the cast wanders about the world. The dialogue sequences follows the Layton style with 2 characters being shown on the screen at the same time as opposed to the first person "dating sim" perspective of the PW games.
Since the cancellation of Mega Man Legends 3, I had lost all the will to save up for a 3DS but this trailer reminded me of 2 of my favorite DS titles and that their sequels and spinoffs will be moving on to Nintendo's new handheld. This trailer has slightly fueled my 3D desire but unless I see an English trailer of this soon, Nintendo won't be getting my money... Aside from Skyward Sword.
