Ace Attorney 5 Limited Edition Comes With Phoenix Wright Figure And More

By Sato . April 17, 2013 . 10:00pm

To celebrate the game’s release date of July 25th, Capcom have revealed a Limited Edition version of Ace Attorney 5, which will include a Phoenix Wright figure, a Phoenix Wright-styled Nintendo 3DS pouch, stickers, and one of three special edition game sleeves.

 

To break it down, the Limited Edition Ace Attorney 5 comes with:

  • Ace Attorney 5 game cartridge
  • 1/10 scale Phoenix Wright figure
  • Wright style pouch
  • Ace Attorney 5 chibi character stickers

 

The mini 1/10 scaled Phoenix doing his famous “Objection!” pose,  is made from figure makers Sentinel, who are celebrating Phoenix Wright’s return to the court after an 8-year absence from the action. The figure  can be compared to the Miles Edgeworth figure that came with  special edition releases for Ace Attorney Investigations 2, and it will be an exclusive item from e-Capcom for 9,990 yen (roughly $100). It can be ordered here.

 

Similar to previous special edition releases, there will be other editions such as the Figure Edition for 8,990 yen, which will include the figure and special sleeve. The Extended Edition can be purchased for 7,590 yen and it will include the pouch, stickers and sleeve. The regular edition will include one of the three special edition game sleeves.

 

Here’s a quick look at the three pre-order bonus DLC costumes we recently reported. Phoenix Wright is seen in his original suit from the first three Ace Attorney games. Apollo is shown sporting a casual outfit while Kokone has a younger look with her schoolgirl outfit.

 

Capcom have also updated their Ace Attorney 5 website with some new info regarding the prosecutor accused of murder, Jin Yugami.

 

Yugami is a prosecutor who is currently serving a jail sentence for murder. The public prosecutor’s office has nominated him to stand in court. Due to his controversial position, he causes trouble in the court, which has made him known as the “disfigurement of the legal world”.

 

Yugami specializes in courtroom tactics that involve psychology. He uses his sharp eyes to read the thoughts of others and plays mind games by speaking in a calm manner for a moment and then suddenly switching to a much more violent tone.

Ace Attorney 5 will be released in Japan on July 25th for Nintendo 3DS.

    Gotta say I’m digging the 3D models. And it’ll look even better on the actual 3DS screen; hopefully the limited edition comes out here, as well.

  • Kavyn

    Can they PLEASE cut off Yugami’s ponytail? He looks so much cooler without it!

    Otherwise, I’m liking what I’m seeing :)

    • Detrimont

      i think so too, from the art released yesterday, we couldnt see the ponytail

    • http://www.jb2x.com/wordpress/ JB2X

      But he’s supposed to give a Samurai vibe :(

      It’d be pointless without the pony tail.

    • http://twitter.com/FrogNinjazord Yᴏsʜɪʏᴀ

      That’s actually his pet hawk, not a ponytail.

    • Sakurazaki

      B-b-but I like it D:

  • DanteJones

    The chances are probably slim, but I hope we see that Limited Edition outside of Japan as well.

    • http://twitter.com/Annalisa_Pua Annalisa Pua

      I’m so tempted to buy the limited edition version just for the LE stuff. x.X; I’m abut 90% sure that this bundle will never make it out of Japan.

  • Suicunesol

    Those 3D models look like 2D portraits…

  • Daniel T

    Oh hey, check out oldschool Apollo! Who wants to bet that we get to play as him in a flashback case?

    • http://www.facebook.com/Mewizkuit Anthony Black

      Based on him appearing on the left side of the screen, I’d say yes.

    Yare yare daze…

  • MrSirFeatherFang

    I really love these facial expressions.

  • XypherCode

    Hyped up! :)

  • s07195

    A sequence with Apollo? Awesome!

  • Coeurl

    Gotta love the crazy hair in these games. I wonder if Yugami’s motif is a skunk

  • GaiunxWolfenX

    not to sound repetitive of another people buuut, where is maya?????????? i cannot live without someone telling me that any step-ladder is just a normal ladder, and she did it best!!!

  • Namuro

    Welp, I guess I was wrong about Yugami, he can do cool poses with his hands after all.

  • Detrimont

    people were right about a school girl outfit for Kokone

  • Adam Duffield

    I NEED THIS GAME IN MY LIFE

  • Lemon

    I…I want Maya and Pearl back. And Gumshoe. And Edgeworth. Or at least see them as a cameo or something, so that it won’t feel as if they are completely forgotten. =(

  • Göran Isacson

    School-girl outfit feels a bit… I dunno, bland? I would’ve prefered some high-tech gadget outfit or a mad scientist coat ala Ema, but I’m not the guy in charge of the DLC…

    So! A look at some other NPC’s, the prosecutor sounds like an interesting challenger. I’m getting a bit of a Manfred-vibe from him, at least in his hardass vibe… but the whole agressive headgames and personality switch-style feels new. I think he can be a lot of fun to match wits against.

  • GundamGuru

    Judging from the pictures, isn’t the “special sleeve” included in the LE as well?

  • Otoya

    Where is Dick and Maya?~~~~~~~~~ No~~~~~

  • evilmoogle

    yeah, hell yeah!

    • Internet is Crash

      I, Phoenix Wright, will personally…take your case!

  • komiko12

    I would like for Maya and Miles to appear.

  • http://gamgambit.tumblr.com/ Thespian Treasure Hunter ♢

    Yes! Yes! YEEESS!!

    Phoenix and Polly are playable!

    I hope the DLC is available to purchase in the western though.

  • Aoshi00

    Yugami looks menacing and awesome :). Is that his hair, I thought it was his eagle…

    Hope AmiAmi would have limited edition up soon.. I’ll just get LE without the figure maybe, since Capcom ed is too expensive.. For investigations 2 I only got the normal LE with the orchestra soundtrack. Otherwise both the Edgeworth and Phoenix figures would look so perfect together.. I would jump on it if they do a LE XL!

    Yeah the 3D models look absolutely amazing

  • Alexandra Cordes

    Oh Nix, I missed you so much…

  • Simon

    OMGWTFBBQ now i want this badly.

  • XiaomuArisu

    Playable Apollo?
    Maybe the Prolog chapter which ends with a literal bang

  • Sergio Briceño

    His arm is not straight enough. :p Needs to be angled at 90° or I won’t get that “OBJECTION!” feeling.

  • AuraGuyChris

    Apollo, are your vocal chords okay? Maybe you should practice your yelling again.

  • Xmas Lopez

    I seriously want to chop off Yugami’s ponytail. I think he would look so much better without it. And why is it so damn fluffy?

    • Sakurazaki

      Obviously, he was a L’Oreal model before his arrest.

  • Exkaiser

    I’m really digging Yugami’s design.

  • Tiramii

    I highly doubt it, but it’d be nice if the limited edition came here to the US. I want that figure. ;3; AND OMG APOLLO! <3

  • VenerableSage

    As much as I enjoy Phoenix’s classic outfit (which, of the DLC costumes, would be my personal choice), I honestly think his new outfit is actually an upgrade. It reflects a more mature character stemming from his tribulations (pun totally intended) after his disbarment, plus it makes him look a bit more dignified and older in court. Given his veteran status (and acting as a mentor to Kokone and possibly still to Apollo), it really just seems to be a positive change to me.

    That said, Capcom continues to leave me perplexed from a roster standpoint. While the side characters for individual cases are fine to be one-off appearances (though I am aware that there characters and story elements that persist through multiple cases and games), I can’t really understand why major characters that already have expanded backstories (and some importance to the series) seem to get passed by the wayside… Well, okay, I guess there’s the point that the first game came out back in 2001 and it isn’t 100% reasonable to expect every single player to have played every game in the series, especially players new to the series that want to pick up GS5.

    To me, the atmosphere and “lore” (or at least the canon/continuity) of the series is one of the big points to it; the games feel more about Phoenix and his interaction with other characters (especially established ones) than simply solving the cases at hand. It’s that reason that, even though you need some new characters to continue to flesh out, I can’t help but wonder about previous characters (even ones up through AAI2): Ema, Gumshoe, Jake Marshall, Klavier, Franziska, etc.
