Games on the DS/3DS similar to Layton/Ace Attorney

I really like these kind of games. Played games like Ace Attorney and Hotel Dusk, after seeing my girl play Layton and the miracle mask my appetite for these games has re-awakened

Ghost Trick.

Also, The Last Window (sequel to Hotel Dusk). 999 is more VN than those games, but might also be worth a go. Same for it's sequel Virtue's Last Reward.

There's also Jake Hunter: Memories of the Past. Do not confuse with the other one, Detective Chronicles. This one is a better translation of that game with added content.

Finally I can recall Time Hollow, although I would leave it to last.


Just to be clear, Ghost Trick is the better of them all.

Doctor Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights. It's like a weird mesh of Layton and Pokemon. But it works. Poured over 19 hours into my cart before the thing crashed.

The Original Pari - Accept Nothing Less (Innocent Until Proven Evil)
Keeping this in my sig until a new Phoenix Wright game is released in the US!

Also, Trace Memory. If you liked Hotel Dusk, Trace Memory is in the same vein.

The Trauma Center games are also good. Otherwise go for 999, Virtue's Last Reward, Ghost Trick, and Last Window like has been previously said. You could also try out The World Ends With You for it's story, though the gameplay isn't similar.

Yes, go for 999, VLR, and Ghost Trick.

I'm a diehard Ace Attorney fan and I loved Ghost Trick. Definitely go for that.

999 is also very enjoyable as well.

Touch Detective,, if you have a high tolerance for cuteness... and if you can actually find a copy.
