Shady Types

Somehow... listening to them talking... is making me feel all profound.

Me too... I suddenly have a profound feeling that I'd like to eat some spaghetti right about now!

"Episode 10: Shady Types" is the tenth special episode for Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. There are reports of two suspicious individuals lurking about in Nulwitch Woods, so the main characters set out to investigate.

Reunion in the forest[]

Word spread of a couple of shady characters at Red Flower Lake, and Hershel Layton, Phoenix Wright, Espella Cantabella, Maya Fey and Luke Triton set off to find them. They suspected that they were Robbs and Muggs, but instead they found the former judge and Wordsmith engaged in a philosophical discussion. It seemed as though Wordsmith was trying to get the judge to buy him dinner.

It turned out that the judge had no idea what Wordsmith was talking about, and just wanted to know where he should proceed in life. After learning that even his beliefs were being manipulated as part of Project Labyrinthia, he felt that the world was so incomprehensible. Because of this, the judge was trying fortune-telling to advise people on how to find a brighter future. However, it was more difficult than he had imagined.

The group then started talking about puzzles, with Layton providing an easy one as an example of how refreshing it could be. They then ended up talking about puzzle strategies. Fey would just guess the answer. Wright would scour every place for hint coins, but would never actually used them even when he was stuck, because he would always feel like he was wasting them. In contrast, Wordsmith would look at the Super Hint before even starting.

Carmine - Final[]

"Since Carmine is a friend of Professor Layton, I wanted to make him Laytonesque, but Level-5 requested that I redo him as a cool AA-style character!"

Carmine - Concept Art[]

"Told that Carmine's appearance in the game was very short, I drew him... and I got told he looked like the type that dies in the opening! So I had to change his design..."

Johnny and Olivia[]

"Smiles has gone a long way from the first design. He was a guy in his prime years! As for Olivia, it was my long-awaited chance to create a fiery female character!"

Prosecutor Flynch[]

"Flynch has the standard AA first-trial prosecutor look, but with a London touch and loads of conficence, hence his smart outfit with a casual bow tie."

The Judges[]

"AA judges look so rugged, but I thought the London judge would belong to the Layton world, and so I made him more cuddly and lovable..."

Darklaw and Espella[]

"Shu Takumi would say, 'Zvarri! Look at teacher Eve and her student Espella - straight out of Owl Cote School!'"
