This is Ace Attorney 5, by the way.



PR was just dropped into my inbox.

London, UK. — May 13, 2013 — Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today confirmed that Phoenix Wright™: Ace Attorney™ - Dual Destinies will be available to purchase digitally on Nintendo 3DS™ across Europe and North America in Autumn 2013.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies, previously announced for the West as Ace Attorney™ 5, sees the return of courtroom hero Phoenix Wright. Set eight years since his last appearance in the courts, the first case in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies sees the action start in a destroyed court room. It’s down to Phoenix Wright and his team at the Wright Anything Agency to discover the cause of the destruction. Players will have to battle it out in court against Gaspen Payne, the younger brother of Winston Payne from previous Ace Attorney titles, as they defend the accused.

The much loved gameplay and features from previous titles in the Ace Attorney™ series return but for the first time in stunning 3D graphics, bringing the courtroom and characters to life and putting players directly in the heart of the action. Players will need to investigate each crime scene with the dynamic 3D visuals now making it possible to change views and zoom in on areas to uncover any hidden evidence or clues. In the court room the drama continues as players present their evidence, challenge witnesses and begin to unravel the truth behind each of the cases in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney -Dual Destinies.

Joining Phoenix is the young Attorney Apollo Justice and new Associate Attorney Athena Cykes. Athena’s unique ability to psychoanalyse witnesses introduces a brand new element to proceedings. Using Athena’s ‘Mood Matrix’ players can detect the emotional state of a witness and tell whether they’re surprised, angry, happy or sad. Players can compare these feelings with the statement given by the witness, point out any contradictions between the two and challenge the witness testimony.

The trailer also mentions this, though for some reason I feel like "retail version" refers to the final version of the game rather than a boxed copy.





I guess Europe means a PAL release?

Being digital only would be a fucking humongous kick in the nuts. I'm hoping it's just an omission.

I mean, I'll buy it anyways, but as if there were a better way to guarantee that AA5 would sink.

Digital only means no one will ever actually own this game, Nintendo.
Nintendo's not the one responsible for this decision. It's all on Cacpcom.

You guys are going to pass on a game you're really excited about just because it's digital only? :/

Instantly bought the second it's out, I'm so happy this is coming after we never got AAI 2.

Maybe, but Nintendo is responsible for me not buying games from the eshop. All on them here, imo.
