I will have order in the court. Today Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, have announced that they are releasing a new Phoenix Wright game for the Nintendo 3DS. Titled Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice we see the return of Defence Attorneys Phoenix Wright and Apollo Justice along with many other familiar faces.
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice will be set a brand new courtroom situated in the Kingdom of Khura’in, home of the Kurain Channelling Technique. One of the new features added to this game is the Sight gameplay mechanic that allows the player to revisit the last moments of a victim’s life. Players must fight to unravel the contradictions in the testimony of the dead, cross-examining the Royal Priestess’ Spirit Insight to see the sensations a victim felt just before death.
Apollo Justice faces his own challenges, taking cases for the Wright Anything Agency and trying to discover the long-kept secrets of his past. Both our heroes are joined by a host of returning friends and adversaries in their fight to bring about justice. As with the past titles, there will be puzzling cases to solve, the new game also brings back and improves on the interactive scientific investigation features from previous entries, including directly dusting evidence for fingerprints and examining video footage to discover the hidden secrets of a crime scene.
The game will be released on the Nintendo eShop as a digital download in Europe and North America for the 3DS this coming September with an MSRP of GBP 24.99 / EUR 29.99 / USD 29.99. Until then enjoy the above trailer from Capcom.
