Ace Attorney 6 Video Previews Divination Séance Mechanics
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
CAPCOM began streaming a video for its upcoming Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Spirit of Justice (Gyakuten Saiban 6) Nintendo 3DS game on Wednesday. The video previews the game's Divination Séance mechanic.
The video shows Apollo consulting with Phoenix on how to clear a case in the game, mentioning that he's tried the case 10 times but he still gets a guilty verdict. Phoenix tells Apollo that he must try finding an inconsistency between the oracle that Rayfa describes, and the vision being shown in the Divination Séance. Eventually, Apollo finds the inconsistency between the victim blacking out and when he feels pain. However, Apollo is worried about his progress in future cases when Phoenix isn't around to help him. Phoenix reassures him, saying that if he fails the case twice, a button will appear that will offer him a hint.
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.
