Trial demo previews 1st case with Phoenix, Apollo & new characters Athena, Shinobu

The official Japanese website for the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies (Gyakuten Saiban 5) game launched a trial demo version online on Wednesday. The demo runs on PCs with Flash Player 10.3 or higher, although it may not work in some instances of Google Chrome. While the lower "screen" accepts mouse clicks, the "buttons" do not work as they would on a real Nintendo 3DS system.

The demo begins with the first case, "Turnabout Countdown," when a explosion destroys the franchise's famed courtroom. The player (as Phoenix Wright/Ryūichi Naruhodō) meets his new attorney Athena Cykes (Kokone Kizuki), and he explains that he himself is back as an attorney after leaving the profession "for some reason."

Athena's close childhood friend Shinobu Morizumi arrives as Phoenix's next client, followed by returning character and Phoenix's (injured) subordinate Apollo Justice (Hōsuke Odoroki). This week's issue of Enterbrain's Famitsu magazine also reveals two more returning characters: the brilliant prosecutor Miles Edgeworth (Reiji Mitsurugi) and the spirited magician Trucy Wright (Minuki Naruhodō).

The game will ship on July 25 in Japan with a limited-edition version that includes a Phoenix Wright figure. It will then arrive in the West as a download-only title this fall.
