So goes the story of ''Professor Layton VS. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney'', a [[Nintendo3DS Nintendo 3DS]] title by Creator/{{Capcom}} and [[{{Level 5}} Level-5]]. A {{Crossover}} between the jaw-droppingly popular ''Franchise/ProfessorLayton'' puzzle games and the ''extremely'' well-written ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' courtroom adventure series, ''VS'' seeks to combine the two playstyles, warning that "this time, the puzzles are filled with contradictions".

* SequelDifficultySpike:
** A weird case. The Phoenix portions of the game are considerably harder than ''Dual Destinies'', which was released earlier outside Japan but developed after this game. Though the fact that the penalties are back to the "5 strikes" system as opposed to health bars combined with SaveScumming being less convenient (there's no easy way to reload saves during a trial, so it requires a full reset, you have to go through the recap dialogue every time and you reload at the start of the testimony rather than at a specific statement) does make it harder than most entries in Phoenix's home series. Thankfully there is a Hint System in place during trials.
** Averted in the Layton portions of the game, with the puzzles being significantly easier and less varied than those in the main games. Nearly all of them can also be solved by using brute force too.

* MissingSecret: A variation with puzzle 20. Because it isn't available until after puzzle 39 can be completed, the player may think they missed a puzzle somewhere. The only indication that this is not the case is that Ridelle doesn't have it.

** The "story" heard upon first entering Labrynthia mentions "two companions" being attacked by a witch. Even people in-universe think it might be referring to Luke and Layton, and warn them to stay out of trouble. [[spoiler: It turns out to be [[RedShirt two random robbers we've never seen before.]]]]

** Ironically, however, in a few small ways the court is shown to be more reasonable than the normal Ace Attorney courts. Namely in the first witch trial, where when Phoenix shatters the credibility of the witnesses, the Judge and Inquisitor Barnham briefly both strongly consider throwing out the whole case and letting Espella go (despite not having found the actual culprit) because the eyewitness testimony they are relying on is clearly completely worthless as proof of Espella's guilt. Normally the court treats the witnesses with sufficient credibility to condemn the defendant until their entire story is demonstrated to be physically impossible, and if you can't find the true culprit, the court almost never lets your client go free.

* NostalgicMusicbox: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1hbiQzWGkXA "Turnabout Sisters ~ Music Box Melody"]] takes Maya's theme from her home series and turns it into a slow music box piece. Extremely fitting, considering it plays [[spoiler:when Phoenix is lamenting her apparent death]].

* NeverTrustATrailer: The first trailer had a number of aspects that are now completely contradictory, such as Layton being the one to prosecute Espella, Luke using his design from ''ProfessorLaytonAndTheLastSpecter'', and the scene described at the top of the page. [[spoiler:While he does prosecute Espella in the last case, it's to prove her innocence rather than her guilt.]] Even the parts that are used qualify as {{Missing Trailer Scene}}s, as the events were completely redrawn.
