First, Keiji Inafune commented on the title, and even stated that he was “80 per cent certain” that Capcom would turn down the possibility of Phoenix Wright and Professor Layton starring in the same game…

“I thought it would be impossible. Phoenix Wright is handled very carefully within Capcom. [Shu Takumi] doesn’t listen to what people say. Nobody but Hino could have thought of it. In a sense, we’re rivals, so usually you wouldn’t want to do this sort of thing…It wasn’t a case of licensing out the Phoenix Wright characters and demanding our licence money. That isn’t a collaboration, and users would see that. For this standalone game, we wanted to create a great history, which would have been impossible if both parties were not fully involved.”

Next, Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino talked about the game a bit, and indicated that Phoenix Wright and Professor Layton will have a showdown…

“I think the fans of both games want to see a showdown, and also want to see a scene where [Layton and Wright] join hands and take on a really big challenge…We want to fill the game with both aspects.”

Hino also discussed the influence of Phoenix Wright on the Professor Layton series…

“We researched the good and bad points of Phoenix Wright, developed the good points and overcame what I saw as the bad points – that’s how we created Professor Layton.”


This information comes from David Tyler, general manager for Activision’s licensed business unit…

“Our expectations are that GoldenEye 007 will be one of the best-selling games for the year on the Wii.”

If I’m remembering correctly, GoldenEye 007 sold very, very well on the N64. It might be a tough task to match the sales of the original game. Still, I think the title will end up doing pretty decently when it’s released next month.


Obviously, nothing has truly changed in the trailer since we posted it at the end of September, but we finally are able to listen to English voiceovers…
