Cross your fingers, touch wood and give your bunny a foot massage: it looks like Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney could be heading to Europe this December.

As reported by Go Nintendo, the game has cropped up on a couple of French retail sites - Cdiscount and La Fnac.

This is hardly official confirmation of a Western release, but it certainly gives hope to those of us who'd like to see the game outside of Japan.

What do you think, Mr French Analyst?

J'espère que nous verrons le jeu cet hiver. Mais nous probably shouldn't get our hopes up parce que these sites could be just speculating or quelque chose comme ca. Je ne sais pas.
