Following Famitsu’s latest coverage of the game, Capcom published official screenshots and art from Ace Attorney 6. Take a look at today’s images below.

Update: Bumped to the top – more screenshots added.

Capcom has opened the official website for Ace Attorney 6. You can access the page here.

Meanwhile, we also have the first screenshots from Ace Attorney 6. Those are below.

Additional information about Ace Attorney 6 has been translated from the pages of this week’s Famitsu. You’ll find the details rounded up below.

– Once again, the game is set in a foreign country which Phoenix visits “for a certain goal”
– The old Wright luck kicks in and he finds himself wrapped up in a certain case when his tour guide is arrested
– Phoenix goes to see the trial
– When there, he sees there’s no defense attorney and the judge is relying on things like an “oracle of spirits” to hand down a guilty verdict immediately
– Phoenix objects and takes the defense’s bench
– In the game is the mysterious, strong-willed woman in the art
– This woman is neither a witness nor a prosecutor nor a judge
– She’s this game’s “key person” like Athena in AA5
– Note that it does not say she’s Phoenix’s assistant, just reuses the “key person” term
– The “water mirror” in the courtroom plays a part in a new system they’re keeping under wraps
– The magazine also seems to suggest there may be other small changes from the usual courtroom antics
– This new system will be playable at TGS 2015
– In this country, there are prosecutors, but no defense attorneys
– Defendants must use a “certain object” to defend themselves
– The game’s theme is a “courtroom revolution”
– The team felt Phoenix was in a position where he didn’t really have anyone who could match up to him in Japan, so that was part of the reason they moved him into the wider world
– They also hope that trials in a court where the usual “rules” don’t play will help give a sense of urgency to the game that they couldn’t get in just a plain Japanese trial
– Devs have heard complaints about Ace Attorney 5 being too easy due to the many hints characters gave
– With this game, they’re aiming to let the player enable/disable hints on their own, and to avoid direct clues like in AA5
– Development is still fairly early on
– The team wants to make a game to surpass the previous entries, and to “betray the player’s expectations – in a good way!”


More Famitsu scans of Ace Attorney 6 leaked today, revealing new details about the game.

A new female character spotted in the first round of scans is featured prominently in multiple images, although there is no information about her identity yet. She appears to be objecting to a hastily-passed verdict.

Translations of multiple quotes from the scans are now also available:

– The theme is “courtroom revolution”
– You can turn off hints!
– Development on the game is 30% complete

What’s the theme and concept of Ace Attorney 6?

Takeshi Yamazaki, director: “Throughout the series, Phoenix Wright is in a place that lacks enemies. Because of that, we’re paying more attention to the world this time.”

Eshiro Motohide, producer: “It’s tough to develop within the Japanese courtroom, since an exhilarating part of the game is how situations can change from from desperate to complete turnabouts. The theme is ‘courtroom revolution.’ Phoenix Wright changing the system of the court is a major theme.”


The first scans of Ace Attorney 6 have surfaced from this week’s issue of Famitsu.

According to the magazine, the game takes place outside of Japan. Phoenix Wright has come to the unnamed country for a reason, but he gets involved with another case. Residents of the country apparently believe in the spirits of the dead. A big Water Mirror (mizukagami) can be seen in their courtrooms on the floor. On the upper 3DS screen, there are images and words floating in the water. The touch screen seems to show part of a testimony and the option to present something.

Famitsu also introduces us to a boy who goes by the name (roughly) Bokto Tsuani. Bokto is a monk-in-training who works as a tour guide to make some money. It’s said that after starting his tour-guide-talk, he can’t be stopped.



Earlier today, Ace Attorney 6 was revealed by Famitsu. We now have confirmation that the game will be releasing in overseas territories.

“Ace Attorney 6 (working title) will be coming to the west,” Capcom said in an official statement. “We’ll have more information on the Western release soon.”

It is not yet known if the previous Ace Attorney game, The Great Ace Attorney, will be localized.


The latest Ace Attorney spin-off game, The Great Ace Attorney (Dai Gyakuten Saiban) was just recently released in Japan. Seems like Capcom aren’t resting on their laurels though – the next mainline Ace Attorney game has just been announced. Famitsu revealed that the title will be playable at Tokyo Game Show this year.

Naturally it’s a 3DS game.  The game is spearheaded by producer Motohide Eshiro and Takeshi Yamazaki, both of them series veterans.

We will keep you updated.
