Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney is almost complete

Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney has entered the final stage of development, according to designer Shu Takumi.

Takumi told Japanese magazine Famitsu that the game was progressing smoothly. Level-5 is developing the game with Capcom as copublisher.

Japan is expected the receive the game sometime this year. There's no word yet on a release for North America, but keeping this one from us would be a crime.
