Something strange is going in in Labyrinth City. The townspeople live in fear of witches and magic, and celebrate the "Story Teller." Whatever he writes in his book becomes true.

In a courtroom deep within the city, a young woman stands trial for witchcraft. The prosecutor, a dapper gentleman with a top hat, accuses her of being the witch that has brought havoc to the city.

Across the room, the defense attorney smirks and taps a sheet of paper, then stands.

"OBJECTION! Professor, there is a huge contradiction in your argument!"

So goes the story of Professor Layton VS. Ace Attorney, an upcoming Nintendo 3DS title in development by Capcom and Level 5. A Crossover between the jaw-droppingly popular Professor Layton puzzle games and the extremely well-written Ace Attorney courtroom adventure series, VS seeks to combine the two playstyles, warning that "this time, the puzzles are filled with contradictions".

In short: Your body isn't ready.
