Okay. So I got a letter in the mail. And the first thing I saw when I opened up the CD was this.
I didn’t want to believe it. But it’s apparently called “Professor Layton VS Ace Attorney: Seishison”. Seishison being a portmanteau of the Japanese characters for Spirit and Descendant. Which I want to think means that Layton Brothers was in.
I’ll put a read more to put less clutter.
We were all looking forward to Shu Takumi’s next game, but I don’t think any of us were expecting this! Here’s to 2016!
So nah, the above is an April Fool’s gag, not anything real. Sorry!
At C-R we like to do something or other around April Fools’, but this year we didn’t manage to pull anything together in time. That’s when I saw this post floating around, and given the amount of effort that went into it, it seemed like a fun thing to pick up on in lieu of a prank of our own. After contacting the artist for permission, we reposted it on our site and other sources, making sure to include things like the “April Fool’s” tag or allusions to a “Frail Spool”.
And speaking of said artist, navnavprime - they put a lot of work into this, with NPCs based off of other Tumblr users, voice clips from various sources, faux concept art, and everything. It’s all in good fun, and the creator hopes to use some of these resources in an upcoming fanfic. Give them a hand for putting the time into this, and for being kind enough to let us spread it around. (To clarify: navna came up with this on their own time - we just decided to repost it.)
Finally, we have heard some people were upset by this not being real. While it’s definitely your right, I do ask that you remember this was done in good faith and fun. We’d all love to see a crossover like this, I’m sure - or any info on Takumi’s new game - and we thought this was a silly way to celebrate Mr. Takumi’s work and fandom dreams in the spirit of the day.
