With Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice taking place in both Japan and Khura’in Kingdom, protagonists Phoenix Wright and Apollo Justice will both have plenty of work to do. However, the latest update shows that they’ll also go against each other in court after a certain turn of events.
For the first time since the start of Ace Attorney, we’ll have two protagonists go against each other for a certain case.
Phoenix Wright and Apollo Justice will go against each other with a “certain something” being the key evidence for a case. How will Apollo go against his mentor and superior? And what will happen to the Wright Anything Agency?
Simon Blackquill previously appeared in Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies, and he’ll show up in Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice as a witness. He happened to be at the location of an incident, so he’ll go to the witness stand. Moreover, he’ll not only stand as a witness but we’ll also see him on the passenger seat of the defense. Exactly why is he supporting the defense and not the prosecution?
Former Prisoner Prosecutor Simon Blackquill
Simon once stood as a prosecutor while being imprisoned for murder, and was called the “Distortion of Legal Circles.” Now that he’ll be a free man in Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice, we’ll see him without the handcuffs that had had previously, and will appear as a partner to a lawyer for some reason.
Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice will release in Japan on June 9, 2016 for Nintendo 3DS, and in North America and Europe in September as an eShop title.
