Ace Attorney Investigations 2 Debut Trailer

Here’s your first look at Ace Attorney Investigations 2 in animated form from the Tokyo Game Show. Art-wise, it doesn’t look different from the first game, but Edgeworth’s new chess-based logic system looks interesting. We still aren’t entirely sure how it functions though.


Given that a portion of the game’s animation can be recycled straight out of its predecessor, we’re hoping the design team should be able to focus more on the quality of the story and cases and address some of the complaints people had with the first game.


Concerns aside, it’s good to see Kay will be making a return alongside Miles and Gumshoe.

    … aaaaaand we have a Shelly de Killer sighting.

    It isn’t Gyakuten Saiban 5, but I approve nonetheless. The fact that they continue to make these at all means there is still interest in the franchise.

    I’d like to think these games are what is filling in the “seven year” canon so we know what happens between the end of GS3 and the beginning of GS4. Shelly de Killer making what is a huge cameo appearance is already a huge bonus.

    Here’s to a speedy stateside release.

    oh boy, the wait between the japanese release and the english translation will seem like ages to me like the first miles edgeworth game was :(

    The last chapter of the first game was really dragged out to boredom, but I love the cameo of the old cast and the antics of Kay and Gumshoe. Who am I kidding, I like the PW series so much I would get anything w/ “Gyakuten” in the title. I hope they would do a better job w/ the story like you said.
