Ace Attorney 6

Capcom has shared a pair of Japanese Ace Attorney 6 commercials. Both can be seen below.

Update: The fine folks over at Court-Records have discovered something interesting; Capcom published more pictures of the LE contents, including a poster set. One of the posters depicts pixel art of the characters found in the game, and among them is a character from a previous Ace Attorney game: Ema Skye. Now, this isn’t a 100% official confirmation that she will be in the game, but it does seem quite likely that the scientific investigator will be in Ace Attorney 6.

We posted the Ace Attorney 6 anime prologue a few days ago, but it may not have been too worthwhile for those who can’t understand Japanese. MegamanNG has since made a video available with English subtitles, which you can watch below.

Thanks to Zach for the tip.

What happens when Phoenix Wright first visits the Kurain Kingdom?

– To meet up with the Maya Fey, who is in training, Phoenix Wright visits the Kurain Kingdom

– As this happens, the Kurain Kingdom’s prized treasure, the “Jewel of the Founder,” is stolen
– Its guard is murdered as well
– There’s testimony from chief priest Potdino who is said to have witnessed the incident
– Bokuto is arrested on charges of theft and murder by means of the “”Oracle of the Spirit” who projects what the victim saw just before his death

What the heck is the “Crime of Defense?”

– The courtroom of the Kurain Kingdom is a spiritual medium trial absent of lawyers
– There is no room for the accused to explain their case—they’ll be “guilty”
– Phoenix Wright believes in Bokuto’s innocence
– He volunteers to defend Bokuto to prevent that from happening
– As soon as Phoenix distinguishes himself as a lawyer, his attitude completely changes
– He despises Phoenix and will not speak the truth
– If he continues his defense, he’ll be accused of a the “Crime of Defense”

Potdino Niwackus: Temple Chief Priest and Musician

– Devout follower of the Kurain faith
– Chief priest of the Jiin Temple
– Calls his “damaran,” an instrument of the Kurain people, his partner, and performs the musical accompaniment to Leifa’s Dedication Dances
– Fascinates the audience listening to the trial and even the presiding judge as he sings the music of his people while testifying
– He says he saw the scene where Bokuto killed the victim, but…

Mitamaru: Bokuto’s Faithful Pup

– Puppy raised by Bokut
– Normally completely inside Bokuto’s bag
– But when Bokuto is in a pinch, it gallantly leaps out and barks at the Bokuto’s opponent
– Adorable and faithful
– Prideful Tibetan Mastiff
– May play a surprisingly big role
