Ace attorney vs professor Layton

4

Ok, so, I love Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney. It was a great game. I’m so glad it was made. It was a joy to play. 

BUT

WHY DOES EVERY PIECE OF CONCEPT ART WE’RE GIVEN POINT TO A MUCH COOLER GAME WHICH GOT DISCARDED? 

WE NEARLY GOT ADORABLE PL-STYLE PHOENIX AND MAYA

WE NEARLY GOT BADASS AA-STYLE LAYTON

WE NEARLY GOT EVIL VERSIONS OF LAYTON AND PHOENIX 

LARRY AND MILES NEARLY GOT INCLUDED IN COOL FANTASY COSTUMES! WHAT HAPPENED? WHO DECIDED THIS WASN’T A GOOD IDEA? 

WE NEARLY GOT THIS GUY

AN EVIL DISGUISE MASTER! OH MY GOD, LOOK AT HIM! I WANT TO KNOW MORE! WHO IS HE? WHAT DOES HE WANT? HOW DOES HE OPERATE?


WHYYYY LEVEL-5 AND CAPCOM? 

*ahem* So anyway, rant over 

It was still a great game even if they did waste some opportunities 

Level-5: Ok PL games, you all need a clever twist at the end of your stories to shock the audience with.  

Curious Village: Most of the people in this town are actually very advanced automatons 

Pandora’s Box: The entire town is a mirage caused by hallucinogenic gas

Lost Future: This ‘future’ town is really built in an underground cavern under the real town 

vs Ace Attorney: aLL MAGIC IS REALLY JUST HYPNOTISED NINJAS OPERATING BIG BLACK STEALTH FORKLIFTS WHICH YOU CAN’T SEE BECAUSE YOU’RE HYPNOTISED TOO AND ALSO BECAUSE THERE’S DRUGS IN THE WATERWAYS 

Level-5: …….

Original Triogy: ……

vs Ace Attorney: Did I do it right guys?

Sequel PL vs PW where Layton gets framed for a murder (which Maya got accused of first because she always does), but he gets bored from the lack of puzzles in jail and breaks out to solve the crime with Pheonix and then comedic manhunt hijinks ensue and it’s stupid and shut up I can dream

on a side note I absolutely did not have the time to do these.
