Namco Bandai Gets Serious With Courtroom Drama Games


nbgi Taking a cue from the Phoenix Wright series Namco Bandai is developing a courtroom drama game of their own. Yuzai X Muzai (Guilty X Innocent) puts players in a different position. You are a juror and need to analyze the presented evidence to decide if the accused is innocent or guilty. To keep the courtroom feel authentic a former prosecutor was hired to keep to supervise the game.


There are four scenarios to play and it sounds like each one will have a different path depending on the verdict you pick. If you feel like your language skills are up to par (this is going to be a text heavy game!) you can import Yuzai X Muzai on May 21. Since this was just announced for Japan it’s too early to tell if Namco Bandai will localize this, but I wouldn’t count on it.
