Ace Attorney 6 3DS game to ship in 2016

CAPCOM announced at a stage event at Tokyo Game Show on Thursday that its Ace Attorney (Gyakuten Saiban) courtroom battle game franchise is getting a TV anime adaptation that will premiere in Japan in April 2016.

CAPCOM launched the game series for the Game Boy Advance in Japan in 2001, and then a port for the Nintendo DS shipped in Japan and in the West in 2005. The game and most of its sequels have players play as defense attorney Phoenix Wright as he investigates and defends his clients at trial.

CAPCOM is developing Ace Attorney 6 for the Nintendo 3DS, and CAPCOM also plans to bring the game to the West. CAPCOM also announced on Thursday that the game will ship in Japan in 2016.

The game has a playable demo at Tokyo Game Show (see image of the game demo area below).

Takashi Miike (Crows Zero, Yatterman, Ichi the Killer) directed a live-action film adaptation of the franchise that opened in Japan in February 2012. The franchise has also spawned several manga series.
