  • Now this is a new trailer. lol

  • HOLD IT! Animation is amazing accurate.

  • Wondering_Zero

    Looks like you won’t be playing as only Phoenix Wright, but as Apollo as well. So maybe we’ll be switching between both of them from case to case?

    • Junk3t

      I bet you’ll control him in the first tutorial case in which the “bomb” that destroys the first court room goes off, which is why he has those bandages in the concept art. (This isn’t a spoiler as it happens in the first minutes of the game, and was even featured in the first trailer for the game)

      • Yeah, what I’ve been thinking too.

      • Barrylocke89

        I’m thinking that you have to be able to play as him in more than that case because if you look, it’s Phoenix that’s examining the bomb witness person. I’m predicting that the game may have Apollo pull a Mia from PW3 and have him defend during a flashback case or something similar.

      • Tom_Phoenix

        It was already confirmed that Apollo will be the defence attorney in the second case. That said, as Barrylocke89 mentioned, it’s entirely possible that it is a flashback case.

  • MrSirFeatherFang

    Noise Level? Hopefully Mega Man makes a cameo.

    • That Noise Level is like an interference in the Heart Scope System, so you have to bring Noise Level down to zero to get a new statement =] Every time you find a contradiction in the Heart Scope, the Noise’ll go down a little ^^

  • Ethan_Twain

    Yes, all right! I am very pleased to see that both Phoenix Wright and Apollo Justice are separate playable characters. When they dabbled with this by making Edgeworth playable for a day in Ace Attorney 3 it worked wonderfully. Since then I’ve had this notion of Ace Attorney telling it’s stories from multiple perspectives giving us the veteran view of Phoenix, the younger view of Apollo, and the prosecutors view of Miles. Now this isn’t 100% that, but it’s moved in that direction. And that makes me happy.

  • AlteisenX

    Hoping for a new trilogy to start from this, and also hope this will contain 5 cases. Love Phoenix Wright series, and can’t wait to hear more of the music when its released.

  • Aoshi00

    Can’t wait, pre-ordered the regular ver alrdy. Hope I would get my copy before 8/15 to get the free costumes, only a 20-day window… I kinda want the e-Capcom edition pouch that looks like Phoenix’s suit though.. Now that’s the real “Igi Ari!!” not the fake movie voice in Layton x Phoenix :P.. want to play this on an XL, or LL.. *sigh*…

  • Man, this looks so good! The anime cutscenes make me wanna watch an Ace Attorney anime too,

  • DesmaX

    I’m amazed to how charming the 3D models are. It really have that charm that normally only 2D sprites would have.

    This game just look beautiful

    • $36487238

      Tashika ni! It does man. The way the 3D models move… man, it’s awesome!

    • Layton is another game that pulls off the same effect really well imo.

  • Higashi no Ame 東の雨

    US release probbably is the same as Layton and Azran Legacies which is next year.

  • $36487238

    SWEET! It still looks awesome even in 3D! I cannot wait to get this!
    As soon as I get a new 3DS, definitely going to get it :)
    And yay! They didn’t abandon Apollo. He still gets a spot ;) Nice!

  • porkiewpyne

    3D investigation! Woohoo. Okay, now to get a fresh pair of pants :3

    • Testsubject909

      Just wear a kilt.

  • ReidHershel

    …………This game better damn well sell here, it looks….AMAZING.

    • Testsubject909

      Well. I don’t own a 3DS, I don’t plan on owning a 3DS anytime soon, in due part because of money issues. But I’ll still purchase the game day 1.

  • Mister Spooks

    Its nice to get back to form. I never liked either of the Ace Investigator games. Too much Miles for my tastes. Bring on the Feeny. I only lament that none of the old crew seem to be returning. I would have liked to see Larry in 3D.

    • Arrei

      Still possible they will. Showing them in trailers would be pretty spoilery, I think.

      • Ridho Siregar

        Yeah. Seeing Maya unexpectedly returns will give me goosebumps when I play.

  • Testsubject909

    I have no OBJECTION to this and I’ll be sure to TAKE THAT as soon as it comes out here….

    That said, gotta make a pre-order so that the shop will HOLD IT for me.

    Edit: Sorry. I just had to.

    Edit 2: Also… Payne… nice new wig you got there… Care to lose it at the end of case 1?

    • That isn’t the Payne we know. It is his bro.

      • Testsubject909

        Payne’s bro… Care to become bald?

  • So this means we play as Apollo at one point, and that he is a defense attorney still? Yay.

    • Ridho Siregar

      Of course. those speculations about him returning as a prosecutor (just because of his new appearance) are, well, just speculations.

  • $29082171

    I love the animation and the models, they look so smooth and flow-y despite the platform it’s on.

  • Gyakuten Saiban Faibu!

    It’s gorgeous :’D

  • surakian

    The 2D to 3D transition is absolutely perfect. It is as if they didn’t change anything at all. This really the best I’ve seen a franchise switch between styles by a company.

    Also this trailer was great and I’m excited to learn more! Can’t wait for some more official announcements from Capcom USA about this as well.

  • DanteJones

    SO good. So freaking good. I’m playing the video over and over so I can listen to the new themes.

  • sakusakusakura_nyo

    Where the hell is Mystic Maya?

    • well, she is the new Master of Kurain, I think she is pretty busy now… but maybe she’ll make an appearance =D

  • yeah!! Apollo is playable! =D I hope I can use the Perceive System, the Heart Scope system AND the Psyche Lock System! *o*

  • wait a minute… that investigation part… it’s Apollo who’s investigating!

  • Go2hell66

    Apollo such a badass

  • I can’t help but giggle like a schoolgirl when I hear his name. All those puns you could make!

  • Wow… just wow! 3d investigations, the character designs .. Ugh I cannot waaaaaaiiit for this game!

  • Please, translate this !

  • Rasputin

    The finger point looks so much cooler in 3D.
