A knock at the door reverberated through the air, signifying the next applicant's arrival.

"Come in!" called out Link.

When the door opened, in walked four people.  The first was a man dressed like a gentleman, complete with a top hat.  Next to him stood a young boy dressed in a blue sweater and cap.  The other man was dressed in a blue suit and had spiked back black hair.  Next to him was a teenage girl dressed like a shrine maiden.

"And you are?" questioned Samus.

"Allow me to introduce myself.  My name is Professor Hershel Layton and this is my apprentice, Luke Triton," spoke the top hat wearing man in a slight British accent.

"A pleasure to meet you, ma'am!" spoke the boy, also in a British accent.

The other man was about to speak, but the girl beat him to it.

"And this is the greatest defense attorney ever, Phoenix Wright, but you can call him Nick!  Oh and my name's Maya Fey!" exclaimed the girl with a cheerful grin.

Phoenix rubbed the back of his head in embarrassment. "I wouldn't go as far as to say I'm the greatest defense attorney ever, Maya."

Maya rolled her eyes at her boss' modesty before she turned to Link and Samus. "Anyway, we're here because Nick and the Professor wish to enter the next Smash Brothers!"

Link raised an eyebrow at that. "Really?"

Luke nodded his head. "That's right!  The Professor may not look like a fighter, but he's really good with a sword."

Layton let out a few chuckles. "While it is not gentlemanly to brag, I must admit that I am well taught in the way of the sword.  To be honest, I mostly wish to join this Smash Brothers so I may test my skill against the other swordsmen."

Maya then spoke up again. "And Nick here may look like a weakling, but he can fight too!  He was actually in Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3 as a fighter!"

Phoenix shuddered at the memory.  Fighting against the likes of Firebrand, Akuma, and Wesker was something he'd rather forget.

"…I don't know.  Considering who is already a Smash Fighter, are you two sure you want to join?  Doing so means you'll most likely have to fight Bowser or Ganondorf," explained Samus.

Phoenix turned a little green at the thought of fighting such villains, while Layton contemplated the idea.  Maya and Luke though spoke up.

"I'm sure Nick can handle it!"

"The Professor can do anything!"

Layton let out a few chuckles again. "I guess that settles it then."

"Speak for yourself, Professor," muttered Phoenix. 'I don't want to do this!  What would Iris think?  I don't want to worry her.'

"Then I'll send your applications in then," said Link. "Should you be picked, we'll give you a call."

"Very well then.  Come, Luke.  We have puzzles to solve."

"Right, Professor!"

"C'mon, Nick!  Let's go tell everyone the good news!"

"Hold on, Maya!"

The four left, leaving Link and Samus to their own devices.

Link let out a laugh. "It'd be interesting to see one of them make it in."

"But it will be highly doubtful and you know it."

"You never know, Samus.  You never know."

Professor Layton was next on the request list while Phoenix Wright was much later. I thought though, why not just put them in the same chapter? So you guys and gals get two for the price of one. Here’s hoping Ace Attorney VS Professor Layton gets localized soon.

If Layton was OOC in anyway, I apologize. I haven’t played enough of the games to really capture his character. All I know is that he’s a gentleman who likes to solve puzzles.

Even though I would get a good laugh out of Profeser Layton and Pheonix Wright in SSB4, I don't think that will happen. Mainly because Megaman took up Capcom's spot in the game, and he appeared in UMvC3.

If Professor Layton got in, I think Toony would be similiar Luke. What? They both do a crud ton of puzzles in their respective games.

Too bad that there will most likely be no more third-party characters now.

Thank you! I thought I was the only one who wasn't fond of yaoi!

I've got some high hopes for the professor.

I even figure he could use a hint coin system, where he can extend normal attacks and a couple special moves by spending them. After all, they make puzzles easier to tackle...

I guess his up special could be that handheld copter thing that Don Paolo used in the movie.
I'm all for this! They better make it in!

Maybe Layton's final smash could be making the opponent solve an extremely hard puzzle.

Final Smash: OBJECTION!

I'm wondering if you could possibly do an interview involving Kite and Blackrose from the .hack// series. I know all the games have been on Playstation consoles, but they are in the 3DS game Project X Over as a couple of Namco Bandai's character (Skeith is in there as well, I would love to see how that interview would go. xD) though the game pretty much /just/ came out in Japan and it's unknown if it'll be localized (I really hope it will).

I'm going to have to say no for two reasons. One, .hack// started off as an animé (Apr 2002) before it got video games (Jun 2002). Two, even if it was a video game first, I don't know if Project X Over would be enough for Kite or Blackrose to be in SSB since it is a crossover between many series, thus making Kite and Blackrose's role most likely small compared to others.

It is true that .hack// started with the SIGN anime, but Kite and Blackrose did first appear through the games as the SIGN OVA Unison was aired some time after the fourth game. And both characters are in the game .hack//Versus which puts eight of the main characters from the series into a fighter. Add in that both character as well as Skeith are in Project X Zone goes to show that the series is still popular (even though we haven't seen anything for the series outside of Japan since G.U. and Roots)

...I guess I could do it, but I'm still a little hesitant.

Not saying that you have to do it, just wanted to point out a few things about the characters in general. That and .hack// is my absolute favorite series with a fantastic plot/story line (in my opinion anyway).
