Famous Japanese lawyer Phoenix Wright will be returning for his fifth game in his Ace Attorney series on the 3DS with all new features, and a new female companion.
Perhaps the biggest and most obvious change will be its change in graphics. The newly announced title will now feature 3D visuals for the first time — meaning a leave from the original 2D sprites. Player’s will be able to take advantage of a new feature in which they may choose facial expressions during testimonies.
The title, officially known as Ace Attorney 5 will feature the return of series protagonist Phoenix Wright, much unlike the fourth title which starred new character Apollo Justice. Instead, the new game will replace re-occurring character Maya from the first three titles, with a new, mysterious female companion who will have a “key” role in the game.
Set one year after the events of Ace Attorney 4: Apollo Justice, the only details known are that there will be an explosion in the court house, and the prosecutor Phoenix will face is Max Payne’s brother.
Ace Attorney 5 will have a featured demo at this year’s Tokyo Game Show. The demo will last fifteen minutes.
