Ace Attorney 6 Game's New Japanese Video Hints at Phoenix/Apollo Confrontation
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The Japanese website for CAPCOM's Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Spirit of Justice (Gyakuten Saiban 6) Nintendo 3DS game posted the third promotional video on Wednesday. The video introduces the game's characters and setting, and hints at a confrontation between Phoenix Wright and Apollo Justice.
The game is slated for digital release in North America and Europe in September.
The game's theme is a "courtroom revolution." The game is set in a country called the Khura'in Kingdom, a "country of mystery and faith." The game contains a "Courtroom of Resignation" where defendants are only told to give up, as the Khura'in 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 Khura'in 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.
The game will ship in Japan on June 9, and it will retail for 5,800 yen (about US$51) for the package version and 5,546 yen (US$48) for the download version. 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 in Khura'in, and the other will revolve around Apollo Justice in Japan.
From June 9-29, players in Japan will be able to download a free costume pack with three limited time costumes: a Furio Tigre (Toranosuke Shibakuzō) outfit for Phoenix Wright, a student uniform for Apollo Justice, and a Trés Bien waitress uniform for Athena Cykes (Kokone Kisuke).
The official website streamed the game's eight-minute prologue anime video in March.
