What happens when you take as objectionable a lawyer as Phoenix Wright and drop him into a world without lawyers? How can he ply his trade and work in a court system that doesn’t have any room for him? Those are the questions that will almost surely be answered as Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice heads to Western 3DS’ this September.
The kingdom of Khura’in will pit Phoenix Wright against this new challenge, as he has to figure out the Khura’inese law system and the workings of the Divination Séance to try and help his clients. Of course, just because he’s in foreign lands, that doesn’t mean he won’t be making use of the same pressing, bluffing and “OBJECTION!” shouting techniques.
One quirk to this announcement from Capcom is that this will be a purely digital release, as it comes to the Nintendo 3DS eShop at a price of $29.99 / £24.99 / €29.99. On the plus side, the wait for this Western localisation is pretty short, as the game is only coming out in Japan on June 6th.
In the meantime, if you need to catch up on the series, they’re going on offer tomorrow, with Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy dropping to €14.99/ £12.49 / CHF 19.45 and Phoenix Wright™: Ace Attorney™ – Dual Destinies to €9.99/ £7.99 / CHF 12.75. The offers run until May 26th.
