Phoenix Wright, the well-loved legendary defense attorney from 2013's Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies is making a comeback on the latest courtroom action title released by Capcom.
Dubbed Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Spirit of Justice or Ace Attorney 6, the Nintendo 3Ds game will feature Phoenix Wright and his fellow defense lawyer Apollo Justice solving cases in a fictional land called "Khura'in."
The duo will find themselves defending suspected criminals who are charged with serious crimes in a nation where lawyerless trials prevail. Cases are solved by conducting séances in the person of Khura'inese Royal Priestess Rayfa Padma Khura'in. The divination séances allow the priestess to see the past and reveal how a crime was committed. This way, court trials are expected to end up fast. In modern standards, however, there is obviously a lack of fairness on the part of the charged suspect.
"Spirit of Justice is packed with puzzles on top of the series' well-known witty and humorous courtroom drama," says Capcom. "Phoenix and Apollo will unravel captivating and revealing cases in their search for the truth, working with (or against!) a colorful cast of new and returning allies and adversaries along the way."
Some of the beloved characters from the game's older installments players can expect in the upcoming title include Ema Skye, Miles Edgeworth and Maya Fey, who is Wright's burger-loving sidekick.
While the game has added a supernatural touch to the storyline, Capcom assures fans that most of the gameplay will be familiar to loyal gamers of the series. This means a text-driven gameplay where players are taken to a series of courtroom battles. While playing, gamers need to submit their evidence, support their defense arguments and effectively determine the inconsistencies found in the testimony of a witness as the game reaches the climactic end of releasing the final verdict.
Capcom is yet to announce a specific release date, although it did confirm that the game will be available digitally in September. Players from North America and Europe will be able to get their digital copy of the game through the Nintendo 3DS eShop for $29.99 (£24.99 or €29.99).
