Simon Blackquill Symbolizes The “Dark Age Of Law” In Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies



Capcom’s latest Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies character introduction video features the rival prosecutor Simon Blackquill. While his appearances show nothing short of evil, he’s actually close friends with Bobby Fulbright, who is all about justice.



Blackquill will be appearing in Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies as a rival prosecutor, who is actually serving a sentence for murder. He symbolizes the “dark age of law,” which is actually the theme of the game, so he’ll fit in perfectly and is expected to play a big role.


According to scenario director Takeshi Yamazaki, the concept behind his designs came from the idea of wanting to make an evil prosecutor, so they ended up with the prisoner/prosecutor Blackquill, the mysterious character who is in a rather contradictory position due to certain circumstances.


He’s said to be a very tough opponent in court, as he studied psychology and uses it as part of his psychological warfare against the defendants. He finds ways to put his opponents in disadvantageous positions, through the power of his words and manipulation, which will bring great struggles to the players.



Additionally, he has a companion hawk named Taka, who’ll actively be participating in court next to Blackquill, which Yamazaki believes will be quite amusing.


Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies  will be released this fall in the West on Nintendo 3DS.
