Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice

Capcom has the third development blog up for Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice. The new one can be read here.

Today’s piece involves talk about visual design, special effects, and more. You’ll hear from the likes of UI designer Reiko Nakano and Chieko Akizuki, lead effects artist.

If you have a 3DS, it’s now possible to download a demo for Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice. The download features a section from the first courtroom battle between Phoenix Wright and his new adversary, royal priestess Rayfa, in the foreign Kingdom of Khura’in. It takes up 890 blocks, or 111.25MB.

Here’s some footage of the demo:

In celebration of the new Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice demo on the eShop, Capcom has published an 8-minute prologue video. It shows the events that are set just before the game, as rumblings of a legal revolution in Kingdom of Khura’in begin and Phoenix receiving a mysterious phone call while taking on a trial in the United States.

View the new video below. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice launches on September 8.

Capcom has released another pair of character profiles about new and returning characters appearing in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice.

This entry focuses on Athena Cykes, the rookie attorney who was working with Phoenix and Apollo in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies from 2013. We also get a closer look at Roger Retinz, a producer working with Phoenix Wrights daughter, Trucy Wright.

The eShop listing for Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice is now live in North America. On it, something is confirmed that we were all more or less counting on.

In one of the screenshots, the English menu is shown confirming Spirit of Justice’s DLC for the west. It’s right there when you start the game under “Extras and DLC”. There really was no reason to think that North America and Europe wouldn’t have the same access as Japan given how Capcom handled the series’ last release, Dual Destinies. Still, there you go.

As for what you can look forward to, the big addition in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice was the extra “Turnabout Across Time” case. Capcom also created costumes for Phoenix Wright, Apollo Justice, and Athena Cykes plus a couple of brief non-canon stories that mainly featured the former two characters.

Capcom has released character profiles about new and returning characters appearing in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice.

This time around the focus is on the returning rookie attorney Apollo Justice, who will hold down the court while Phoenix Wright is away in the Kingdom of Khura’in. Additionally, we get our first detailed look at newcomer Nahyuta Sahdmadhi, who will serve as the enemy prosecutor in this game. Not only will Phoenix be facing off against him in faraway lands, but it appears that Nahyuta will make an appearance in Apollos home turf as well.

Capcom has prepared a second video focusing on the voice cast of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice. Find a video for Apollo below, who is voiced by Orion Acaba.

Capcom is continuing its series of development blogs for Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice. You can read the second one here.

This time around, the discussion is centered about how the developers and artists worked to define the look and feel of the Kingdom of Khura’in. The art director and lead artist for the game go into details about the setting, it’s location in the world, the language, and the culture of the fictional land.

Capcom has shared another two character profiles for Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice. Today, we’re able to learn a bit more about Maya Fey and Ahlbi Ur’gaid.

Find the full rundown on both characters below. For those that missed it, Phoenix and Rayfa’s profiles are here.

In the second of our series covering just some of the many characters in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice, we take a break from our protagonist and newly introduced royal priestess Rayfa to focus on the return of Phoenix’s long-time friend, Spirit Medium (in training), and Ace Assistant, Maya Fey! We’ll also be discussing the capable (if not overzealous) new character Ahlbi Ur’gaid, a young monk who also works as a tour guide. Turns out these two have a bit more in common than one might think.

Maya made her first appearance in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney as part of a twisting and gloomy case that implicated Maya as a murder suspect. Despite Maya being initially accused of the crime – an accusation that Phoenix quickly clears after taking on Maya’s case himself – Maya soon joins forces with Phoenix to find the true murderer and bring them to justice. Following the sad circumstances that resulted in Phoenix and Maya inheriting the Fey & Co. Law Offices, Maya soon decided that she wanted to take on the role of Phoenix’s assistant. This new friendship born out of tragedy resulted in not only the offices being rebranded as the Wright & Co. Law Offices, but also helped lift Maya’s mood, soon bringing her back to her naturally cheery self. Maya’s unique ability to channel the spirits of the dead (which causes her physical appearance to change as a result), alongside her natural intuition and optimistic outlook, helped Phoenix through many of his early cases – though her channeling sometimes caused her more problems than it solved!

Capcom has just posted a video interview with Sam Riegel, the voice of Phoenix Wright in Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice. You can watch the video below.
