Capcom Considering To Make More DS Games

By Spencer . February 24, 2009 . 11:00am

Times our tough. That’s the general message from Capcom’s Q&A conference call for the third quarter of fiscal year 2009. Is Capcom shaking in their boots? Not really.   They are sticking to their home console focus, hoping Monster Hunter 3 garners international acclaim, and possibly releasing more Nintendo DS games besides new installments of […]

Edgeworth Takes The Case In May

By Spencer . January 16, 2009 . 8:51am

Phoenix Wright’s rival Miles Edgeworth is starring in his own game. In Japan it’s called Gyakuten Kenji (Reversal Prosecutor) and Capcom will release it on May 28. The official site mentions a limited edition too, but there aren’t any details about what it contains.   It’s Edgeworth’s job to identify the perpetrator and the motive. […]

Miles Edgeworth Spin Off Scheduled For Spring ’09

By Spencer . September 22, 2008 . 1:41pm

Remember Gyakuten Kenji (Reversal Prosecutor)? We heard about the Miles Edgeworth spinoff a few months ago, but Capcom hasn’t said much about it after the original announcement. Finally, we have new screenshots that show Gyakuten Kenji’s opening case and a sporty looking public prosecutor Makoto Yuuki. His name literally translates into something like honest courage. […]

Video evidence of Miles Edgeworth spin off, Gyakuten Kenji

By Spencer . May 2, 2008 . 10:14am

Gyakuten Kenji (Reversal Prosecutor) turns the tables on the Ace Attorney series by putting players in the role of Miles Edgeworth. The spin off sounds more like a straight forward adventure game rather than a courtroom simulator since you can actually control Edgeworth during investigations.   [youtube]http://youtube.com/watch?v=VihZavNIIoc[/youtube]    This promotional movie has some footage of […]

Move Miles Edgeworth in Phoenix Wright spinoff

By Spencer . April 9, 2008 . 11:47am

Ryne11 sent in some scans (thanks!!) for Gyakuten Kenji (Reversal Prosecutor), which Capcom explains is a “Gyakuten NOT Saiban project”. Translation: Gyakuten Kenji is part of the Gyakuten (reversal) series, but it isn’t a Saiban (trial) game.   The emphasis is on investigation where you examine crime scenes with famed prosecutor Miles Edgeworth and get […]

Feast your eyes on an ace Ace Attorney collection

By Spencer . February 28, 2008 . 6:39pm

Last week we announced an Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney contest with a signed poster as a prize and I got to see a lot of awesome collections of Ace Attorney merchandise. Choosing a winner wasn’t easy, but with the help of a few friends we decided Rory was the winner. He does not have Japanese […]

Investigation phase, Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney interview

By Spencer . February 1, 2008 . 6:42pm

The Ace Attorney series has grown in North America under the guidance of goofy, but good natured Phoenix Wright. However, the next Ace Attorney game marks a major change for the series. Capcom developed it ground up for the Nintendo DS and Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney features new protagonist. What is Capcom’s plan for the […]

Gyakuten Meets Orchestra is a one night event where the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra plays music from the games held at the Shinjuku Bunka Center. Tickets run for 5,800 yen ($58) for a S class seat and […]

Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney arrives next month

By Spencer . January 11, 2008 . 9:53am

DS owners who felt left out from the recent Harvey Birdman release don’t have to wait too long to step into a new courtroom adventure game. Capcom sent over an e-mail noting the North American release date of Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney is February 12. If you’re hunting for more information check our impressions of […]

Justice is in the cards, Ace Attorney cards

By Spencer . December 31, 2007 . 12:53pm

You might have a Phoenix Wright plushie, but only Japan gets Gyakuten Saiban playing cards. Maya, Mia and new characters from the Apollo Justice arc are featured as kings and queens or in Edgeworth’s case the number “3”. Phoenix and Apollo are aces. There is a super neat canon tie-in related to Apollo Justice: Ace […]

Apollo Justice coming to North America in 2008

By Spencer . November 9, 2007 . 12:01pm

Make that early 2008 according to an e-mail Capcom just sent over. That’s about all there is to report aside from the localization team pinning Klavier Gavin with a German accent. The release date should give Phoenix Wright fans plenty of time to complete Trials and Tribulations and run through Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law, […]

Phoenix Wright pokes fun at Final Fantasy IV

By Spencer . November 7, 2007 . 1:08pm

You played through Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Trials and Tribulations right? If not you should! The localization is excellent and the writers are known to sneak in humorous references.  For instance the forth case makes a brief reference to Final Fantasy IV's classic insult.

Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney now in Chinese

By Spencer . October 3, 2007 . 12:54pm

I was prompted to do a little research about a screenshot that Jawker sent in (thanks!) about a Chinese version of Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney. This was the first I’ve heard of such a thing and it wasn’t anywhere to be found on the official iQue DS page. Little side story, China just got a […]

Watch – Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney trailer

By Spencer . September 23, 2007 . 9:21pm

If you had any doubts about Capcom localizing Gyakuten Saiban 4 this English trailer introducing Apollo Justice should quell them. In the short video we get to meet Apollo, Trucy and his new mentor defense attorney Kristoph Gavin. It looks like we’ll see Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney sometime in 2008. In the mean time the […]
