    That’s just…wow
    (insert mandatory all my money joke)

  • Neophoton

    Well, I’m sold~

  • Talk about improvements! It looks BEAUTIFUL!.

  • Guest

    I’m so happy right now! (^▽^) Rest assured Sven, we’ll give ya those aggressive sales!

  • Zonic505


    Now I’m hoping for an English trailer soon.

  • コルセット

    So the girl’s name is Kizuki Kokone.  She’s a rookie Attorney and Phoenix is her mentor.

    Oh, and the game looks freakin’ beautiful.  Thank you, based Capcom.

  • Shadowman

    DAT beautiful 3D graphics.

  • LustEnvy

    Looks like a shadow of Kristoph.

    Damn it, Maya, Miles, and Fran better be in this!

  • It’s not terrible but the 2D was better. As long as there’s no voice acting it won’t be a complete disaster! Lip sync has killed several games for me

    • 100%.  The comedic effect is kinda lost — they take too long to “be funny”, the 2D animations were quicker and snappier.  Definitely liked it “cartooned” in 2D better than they did here… 

      Not really much to go on with this trailer otherwise.

  • Barrylocke89

    I need subtitles for this video. STAT!

  • scratchbach

    So. Gorgeous.

  • am I the only one who’s creeped out by the expressions in 3D? Like, I already thought seeing Phoenix embarrassed looked weird but now with this guy and those eyes aaaah no /o

  • HOLD IT!  This Video clearly proves that this game will be AWESOME!

  • Nicolas Vasquez

    i am a fan of the sprite graphics when well done, but these models and animations look fantastic.

  • Voltech44

    Am I the only one who’s reminded of Superman thanks to that lock of hair running down Wright’s forehead?  It seems fitting, since they’re both defenders of justice…even though one of them does it better.  (Phoenix Wright, of course.)

    At any rate, I’m looking forward to the game.  Phoenix Wright may very well be my favorite video game character ever, and it’s good to see him back in action.  My pointer finger is trembling in excitement!

  • Alexander Kim

    I gotta say, even with the shiny new graphics, the TGS trailers for previous installments in the series were substantially more exciting.

    Way more visceral, y’know?

    • kylehyde

      Yeah, certainly the trailers for the DS entries were more dramatic and entacing. Anyway I think that they displayed well te gameplay elements that we know, but certainly for being the first trailer deserved a better fanfare.

  • SirRichard

    The animations and models are fantastic, they keep the feel of the sprites while putting that extra power to use. The new game mechanic (in place of leering at them until you see a hair on their neck twitch) seems to have something to do with messing with emotions or something?

    Interesting stuff, so glad that the localisation was announced ASAP.

  • PreyMantis

    Those are awesome animations. They definitely maintained the feel of the previous installments. I just hope they’re voiced like in Prof. Layton vs. Ace Attorney.

  • KotaroInugami

    Liking the cow lick Phoenix

  • Detrimont

    i hope they explain what happened to Maya

    • s07195

      I hope they explain what happened to Apollo and Trucy (his ADOPTED DAUGHTER for goodness sakes).

      Hopefully they will explain everything!

      • Detrimont

        went to live with their newly discovered mother

  • DanteJones

    Wow. I was a tad bit worried about how the game would look and feel by going with 3D models, but this trailer just blew all my worries out of the water and straight to Hell. It looks fantastic! AND DAT MUSIC.

    • Yup, looks nice and everything but it’s the music that once again truly nails it! That familiar, giddy tension when poking around the truth and the upped tempo when Phoenix goes on attack… Can’t wait! O(≧∇≦)O

  • Aoshi00

    Animation looks great intercut w/ 2D illustration.  I think VNs could look good in 3D as long as it’s done right, like Robotics;Notes or Gyakuten 5 here :)  Wish I had waited until now to get a Jpn 3DS XL…

  • Wake

    I really missed that courtroom. Edgeworth’s game was fun but I always wished that it had a sort of traditional case within the courtroom.

  • Oooo so pretty. Those models are looking very nice, and animating very convincingly.  Just looks like a SUPER hi res version of the old games, look perfect.

  • neetloaf

    Really glad the goofy expressions translated well into 3D. My greatest fear has been subdued and now I can get HYPE.

  • keithmaxx

    With this, I hope no one has OBJECTIONS left… Let’s all defer such exclamations to our ever-comical protagonist.

  • Tales_of_Master

    THAT….OBJECTION….2004….THEME…[email protected]$!#$!efwefw3$!$!#….*bleeeep*
    OMG this looks godly I can’t find word to describe it. The graphics, the voice acting and the MUSIC!!!! 2013 is gonna be a year to remember. To think that the hippies want to end the world in 2012, hah tough luck morons XD

  • Natat

    … Wow, I’m crying here. I’M CRYING RIGHT HERE!

  • Learii
