posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
CAPCOM announced during a livestream event on Sunday that it will release the Gyakuten Saiban 6 (Ace Attorney 6) Nintendo 3DS game in Japan on June 9. The broadcast also revealed that the character Mayoi Ayasato (Maya Fey in the English version) will appear in the game. CAPCOM also began streaming the game's second promotional video on Sunday, which reveals Maya's appearance.
The livestream event and the below "bonus introduction promotional video" also revealed that those who purchase the limited edition of the game will have access to two extra short stories in the game. One scenario will revolve around Phoenix Wright (Ryūichi Naruhodo) in Kurain, and the other will revolve around Apollo Justice (Hōsuke Ōdoroki) in Japan. Additionally, those who purchase the first copies of the game will get special costumes for Phoenix Wright, Apollo Justice, and Athena Cykes (Kokone Kizuki).
The livestream also revealed the new character "Potdino Niwakasu." Potdino is an eccentric character who sings his testimony.
The game will retail for 5,800 yen (about US$51) for the package version and 5,546 yen (US$48) for the download version.
Other previously revealed characters in the game include:
- Nayuta Sadmadhi, a public prosecutor of the Kurain Kingdom
- Bokuto Tsuaani, an apprentice priest
- Layfa Padma Kurain, Kurain Kingdom's shrine maiden princess
- Fumitake Auchi (Gaspen Payne), a prosector
The game's theme is a "courtroom revolution." The game is set in a country called the Kurain Kingdom, a "country of mystery and faith." The game contains a "Courtroom of Resignation" where defendants are only told to give up, as the Kurain code of law decrees that the court needs no lawyers. The game will feature two protagonists: Phoenix Wright and Apollo Justice. While Phoenix's story will be set in the Kurain Kingdom, Apollo's story is set in Japan. The "Mood Matrix" system from the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies game will return in Ace Attorney 6.
Ace Attorney 6 is also in development for the West.
