Phoenix Wright: Dual Destinies is lookin' fine in 3D photo
Phoenix Wright: Dual Destinies is lookin' fine in 3D
by Caitlin Cooke

I'm a big fan of the Ace Attorney series but fell off the wagon somewhere between the Apollo Justice and Miles Edgeworth games, so it's exciting to see that Phoenix is making a comeback in Dual Destinies. The game takes place a few years after he last practiced and this time he's accompanied by his sidekick, Athena Cykes, who has the special ability to sense emotions on her mood matrix machine. Apollo Justice also makes an appearance, having just survived a bombing incident, and I also heard through the grapevine that Edgeworth will be back in some capacity.

TGS: Professor Layton and Phoenix Wright join forces
by Allistair Pinsof

Professor Layton and Ace Attorney are unique within the puzzle/adventure genre, but both share enough in common with each other to make for a perfect crossover game. Not since Marvel vs. Capcom and Kingdom Hearts have dedicated fans (nerds) of two major franchises had something to collectively geek out about.

The slow-paced, narrative-driven puzzles, stylish atmosphere, and quirky characters of both games could be interchangeable. Level-5 and Capcom realize this and are trying to please fans of both franchises, but my time with the game left me wondering if this is one title bringing the two together or merely a two-game combo pack.
