Phoenix Wright fights for justice again in September
New cases depend on the power of séance
Order in the court. The next installment in the Ace Attorney courtroom drama video game series will make its way to North America as Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice for the Nintendo 3DS. It is expected in September.
The new game sees Phoenix in a brand new location: a courtroom situated in the Kingdom of Khura’in, origin of the Kurain Channeling Technique, where mysterious séance trials decide the fate of all defendants.
Brand new to the series is the Divination Séance gameplay mechanic which lets the player revisit the last moments of a victim’s life. Players must fight to unravel the discrepancies and contradictions between the Royal Priestess’s Insight and what is shown in the séance.
Meanwhile, defense attorney Apollo Justice faces his own challenges holding down the fort at the Wright Anything Agency, as he takes on a case that will have explosive implications. Both are joined by a number of returning friends and adversaries in their effort to bring about justice.
The new game is filled with puzzling cases to solve using popular investigative techniques from previous installments.
