CAPCOM franchise's 1st 3DS game set 1 year after 4th game

This week's issue of Enterbrain's Famitsu magazine is confirming on Thursday that Phoenix Wright (Ryuichi Naruhodo in Japanese) will return as the main character of Ace Attorney 5 (Gyakuten Saiban 5), the latest in CAPCOM's legal game franchise. Unlike in previous incarnations, Wright, the other characters, and the backdrops will be in 3D in this first Nintendo 3DS game of the franchise.

The story is set one year after the fourth main game, Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney (Gyakuten Saiban 4 ). Wright lost his license to practice law eight years ago after a conspiracy, but now he is back as a lawyer. Accompanying him is a mysterious girl in yellow who wears a one black glove on her right hand and a cresent earring. In the courtroom, Wright faces off against Fumitake Auchi, a veteran prosecutor and the younger brother of Takefumi Auchi (Winston Payne). One of Wright's clients is Shinobu Morisumi, a frail high school girl prone to spasm attacks.

The player can freely change the camera angle during the game to see the setting in 3D. The rest of the cast, including familiar returning characters such as the Judge, are also in 3D.
