Phoenix Wright’s rival Miles Edgeworth is starring in his own game. In Japan it’s called Gyakuten Kenji (Reversal Prosecutor) and Capcom will release it on May 28. The official site mentions a limited edition too, but there aren’t any details about what it contains.
It’s Edgeworth’s job to identify the perpetrator and the motive. You investigate crime scenes, but for the first time players can freely move their characters to search every nook and cranny for evidence. Once Edgeworth has enough clues you get to put the pieces together with the game’s logic system to build a case. While Gyakuten Kenji is a spin-off of the Phoenix Wright games it sounds closer to a point and click adventure than the other games in the series.
