Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney may still see a Western release

Level 5 CEO Akihiro Hino has hinted at a potential localized Western release of Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney during last week's Japan Expo in France.

While the studio has yet to make an official announcement of a Western release for the title, Hino stated to those attending the event that "something is in the works, but I can't talk about it today. Please be patient." The game saw its Japan release nine months ago.

The 3DS puzzle game received 35 out of 40 points from Famitsu magazine when it released in Japan late last November. We have contacted Level 5 for additional comment and will update when further information is made available.
