Edgeworth’s new rival in Ace Attorney Investigations 2 is a female judge by the name of Mikagami Hakari. Character designer, character designer, Tatsurou Iwamoto, describes her as something of a female saint — an older sister type that he’d look up to. She’s the graceful-looking lady with the long gavel.
Meanwhile, the kid with the blue and red clothes is Ichiyanagi Yumihiko. Like Miles, he’s a prosecutor.
Capcom claim that Ace Attorney Investigations 2’s sprites, as well as its backgrounds, look better than those of its predecessor. We’ll see for ourselves when the game releases, but Japan will get it first on February 3rd, 2011 in standard, collector’s, extended and limited editions.
