First Look At Ace Attorney 5’s Prosecutor Accused Of Murder

By Sato . April 17, 2013 . 12:00am

Earlier today, we reported new Ace Attorney 5 information from this week’s issue of Famitsu. You can check out details regarding DLC outfits for Phoenix Wright, Apollo and Kokone in this report.


Famitsu also reported a new character in the game. To the right, is a first look at prosecutor Yugami Jin, who is actually serving a murder sentence, but has still been nominated to stand as a prosecutor in court. It’s still a mystery whether he actually committed the crime, or not.


In the image, he’s saying: “Heh, in order to cut someone in court, you need a sword called evidence!”


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

      Exactly what I thought. It must have been on purpose.

    • Dexward

      I’d say it’s a mix of Captain Harlock and Dr. Black Jack.

      • Urien (仙人をリンク)

        +1 for Black Jack reference. Not a lot of people know of him. XD

      • AAa

        No its a mixtur Kanbei from basara(The chain) and Kanbei from KOEI(the white skin and white hair)

  • Urien (仙人をリンク)

    “In order to cut someone in the court, you’ll need a sword called evidence.”

    It’s cheesy, but I love it! I PRAY they localize this, AAI2, and Prof. Layton vs Ace Attorney.

    Seriously, these games are way too good.

    • Alexander Marquis Starkey

      We should probably lose hope for AAI2. This already has Localization confirmed, but we don’t have a date.

      • Urien (仙人をリンク)

        I don’t want to, but that’s what it seems like. ;w;

  • Coeurl

    He reminds me a bit of the Pokemon Subway Masters.

  • “Heh, in order to cut someone in court, you need a sword called evidence!”

    I can’t be the only one who thought of the Evidence Blade frm Super Danganronpa 2 ryte?

  • Tom_Phoenix

    As I commented in the previous article, it will be interesting to see why exactly is he allowed to act as the prosecuting attorney. Maybe there is something specific about this case that warrants unconventional measures.

  • Damn, I wish prosecutors actually looked that bad ass.

  • Namuro

    He looks cool, nice design! But with him shackled like that, doesn’t seem like he’ll be moving or posing a lot though. Just imagine him trying to pull a finger-pointing move, but with both hands…

    • Shariest

      One hand points, while other gives the finger…
      I fail to see any problems in that :D

  • shuyai

    i just got a 3DS and looking forward to play some DS game i missed. i wonder if i should just get the latest Ace Attorney or is it worth it to play the whole series. same with layton

    • Wake

      Play the whole series. AA is great example of a game that makes you care about its characters. It really is worth investing the time to play from the start.

  • Ouch My Head Said Dionysus

    Black Jack?

    • Lisa Fraulein

      That’s what I thought too!

  • AAa

    Kuroda Kanbei revived in Ace Attorney…interesting to note…
    He seems like the combination of Kanbei from KOEI’s SW series, and Kanbei from Basara’s series

  • Aoshi00

    Quirky design, love the eagle on his shoulder, at first I thought it was a python or something.. could imagine the exaggerated expression when he gets creamed by Phoenix :) I thought Klavier wasn’t too interesting because he didn’t look silly enough… Kinda wish I have the XL for my Jpn 3DS, super excited and can’t wait!

  • Zonic505

    Wow, he looks awesomely intimidating. Got a freakin’ hawk on his shoulder, a Black Jack hair style. Cannot wait to face off against him in the game.

  • Tsunamori Nanashi

    I wonder why they’d accuse him, he looks like a nice, caring guy

  • A Peregrine Falcon…?

    • Adam I.

      I was kinda surprised no one commented on that already.

      …uh, is the bird a criminal too?

  • darkbartz

    So, they finally arrested Black Jack huh… That’s one stylish criminal though, as usual, the prosecutors get all the good stuff huh.

    Wonder if he will become goofy as we break his case and find the true criminal. Probably will fire that feather like a bullet at Phoenix.

  • Hurray for one more badass person coming for AA5.

  • WingsOfEternity


  • AuraGuyChris

    Let me guess. The eagle did it, not him.

  • Sergio Briceño

    It looks like Black Jack decided to quit being a surgeon and become a prosecutor instead.

  • puchinri

    Is he intentionally supposed to look similar to Black Jack? Cool design though~.

    I’m really looking forward to this one!

  • Göran Isacson

    He looks like he stepped right out of Sengoku Basara. He has a Falcon for a shoulder-buddy. He IS… The Most Intimidating Man In The World. I do not know what Capcom was smoking but I am interested now. I hope his falcon will fly over and peck at Phoenix when he’s annoyed at him, keep up the series strong tradition of a protagonist that just can’t get no respect.
