- You may be looking for the city of London.
|To be downright honest, I'd be more than happy to tell Layton everything I know. But I can't just do that, now can I? ...No, that would be too simple. I've got to stand firm under the steely gaze of all the players and put on an air of superiority. That's my sad fate, as Layton's rival!|
Episode 2: London is the second special episode for Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. The main characters go on a tour of the locations visited at the start of the main game in London. Along the way, they meet Inspector Chelmey, learn about some details about the plot of On a Dark and Stormy Night that were omitted from the game, and obtain some clarification on Chelmey's interactions with Layton in the Professor Layton games.
Tour through LondonEdit
After their reunion at Hershel Layton's office, the Professor took Luke Triton, Espella Cantabella, Phoenix Wright and Maya Fey on a tour of London, particularly the places in which Layton and Triton had gone during their search for Cantabella. While there were there, they noticed that many people were wearing top hats. Triton left the group while they were visiting Tower Bridge, saying that he wanted to show them something. They then headed to the park to find that Carmine Accidenti's car was still stuck in a tree.
Inspector Chelmey explained that the park had become a tourist attraction. The people in top hats were dressing up as Layton. At the end of each tour, tourists would participate in a reenactment of Accidenti's drive through the park, including getting thrown into the tree by the nearby statues. The statues were actually prototype robots created by Labrelum Inc. using "the very latest ultra-advanced technology." Labrelum had bought that land and planted the robots to prevent Accidenti from escaping the Great Witch's clutches. The land and robots had since been given back to the public, as Labrelum no longer needed them.
Throughout the conversation, Chelmey would refuse to divulge information, only to engage in a long, awkward pause before giving the information away. He explained that it was due to his "rivalry" with Layton. Chelmey would be happy to give Layton information, but since that would be too simple, he would resist. Layton assured Chelmey that he considered him not a rival, but a friend. Chelmey also said that Constable Barton would normally be leaking the information, which explained the awkward pauses.
Fey began to wonder what had happened to Triton. Layton told her that Triton had given him a puzzle, which he suggested contained a clue as to his whereabouts. Fey solved the puzzle and got the message: "Layton loves his afternoon tea." It turned out that Triton and Barton were stuck inside the car.
Special gallery quotesEdit
Phoenix in 3DEdit
"Professor Layton had already appeared in 3D before, but we had to start from scratch with Phoenix. It took us a while to get his 3D look just right."
Maya and PhoenixEdit
"These are the drafts for the anime cutscenes. The designs were very simple, so I adjusted the shading and colours. The characters' body proportions were also tweaked."
Maya Sketches 1 (2010-09-16)Edit
"The sketches drawn by the animator were cute, but as it was the first time the AA series characters were animated, I added a few touches to make them more official-looking."
Maya Sketches 2Edit
"I was checking and correcting the drafts every day, and I felt sorry for the animators; but revisions are very important, as they greatly contribute to the final designs."
