It's not a formal announcement, nor is it a guarantee, but it looks like Level-5 is moving forward on a European release of Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney. Speaking at the Japan Expo, a French convention dedicated to Japanese pop culture, Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino had this to say on the possibility of the game seeing release in France:
Quelque chose est en train de se faire mais je ne peux pas vous en dire plus aujourd'hui. Soyez patient.
Something's in the works, but I can't talk about it today. Please be patient.
