At the Anime Expo 2016 in Los Angeles, CA, Producer Motohide Eshiro was on hand to give an interview about the upcoming Phoenix Wright game Spirit of Justice. A series favourite Maya Fey is making a comeback, but all is not as it seems as she is soon directly caught up in a crime drama herself. Phoenix has to prove himself to be a great lawyer in order to help his friend out of the jam she is in.
Athena Cykes, who made her debut in the previous instalment, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies, is returning to the legal line-up. The rookie attorney will be supporting Apollo and the cast again with her ability to psychoanalyse emotions and uncover the truth. And new to the series is pious prosecutor Nahyuta Sahdmadhi, a devout monk who can often be heard admonishing his rivals with the phrase “Satorha!” Using his unique religious rituals, Nahyuta seeks justice for the victims of heinous crimes so that their souls may rest in peace.
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. Check out the trailer above to see some of the cast.
