Capcom has graciously announced that Ace Attorney will receive a new entry to the epic court drama and mystery series. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice serves as the sixth game in the Ace Attorney series. 2016 seems like a big year for Phoenix Wright as the anime has become a realization and the legion of Ace Attorney fans awaiting the next great game coming soon. As a visual novel/longtime fan of the series, I am excited to see where Capcom is willing to take us next!
Spirit of Justice will follow Phoenix Wright and his understudies, Apollo Justice and Athena Cykes, in their adventures in and out of the courtroom. Wright will also be reuniting with a longtime friend that has not appeared in the game for a long time! (not giving away spoilers) The game will be mainly be set in the courtroom of the Kingdom of Khura’in, where they perform rituals to seek conviction of any defendant without the need to lawyers. Wright will fight the system for what he believes in and seek out the truth. We will also be looking through the point of view of Apollo Justice, where he has to take on the workload of Wright Anything Agency and hone his craft.
New puzzles and trials will exercise your skills in challenging discrepancies and contradictions from the games new mechanic, Divination Séance, where mediums perform a ritual where everyone can see the final moments of the victims’ life. Previous elements from past games will also be coming back to the courtroom like Dual Destinies’ Mood Matrix and such. You will be driven to seek out the truth and determine the innocence of your clients.
The game looks out to be very exciting and thrilling. The lush new world and solid cast of Spirit of Justice looks to be very promising. I loved all the entries to Ace Attorney, especially Trials and Tribulations, and hoping to get my hands on this title and be immersed once again in the story of Phoenix Wright. There will be more details as the game nears release, and I am also hoping that this game will get the right push into the hearts of its fans. I’m already waiting for the next entry, I can’t get enough of Ace Attorney!
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice will be released this September as a digital download in the eShop for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. You can find out more about Capcom and it’s wide array of quality titles at http://www.capcom.com/us/.
