Move Miles Edgeworth in Phoenix Wright spinoff

gp.jpgRyne11 sent in some scans (thanks!!) for Gyakuten Kenji (Reversal Prosecutor), which Capcom explains is a “Gyakuten NOT Saiban project”. Translation: Gyakuten Kenji is part of the Gyakuten (reversal) series, but it isn’t a Saiban (trial) game.


The emphasis is on investigation where you examine crime scenes with famed prosecutor Miles Edgeworth and get assistance from Dick Gumshoe. In Gyakuten Kenji, Edgeworth is actually a moveable character. You can probe crime scenes by actually making him walk places.


gp2.jpgAs you can see Edgeworth has some familiar animations like his cocky shoulder shrug. While direct character control is new, Gyakuten Kenji retains similar controls from the Phoenix Wright series. You still scan areas for clues with the touch screen and interrogate strange characters, strange new characters. If Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney is an interactive novel, Reversal Prosecutor is more like a touch screen adventure game.

  • Hello Hello

    None of the scans actually show him prosecuting in the courtroom. I fear this game may be investigation only, which would make it suck. =/
