I had a completely different post planned for today, but then I went onto the Internet and found some exciting news…
If you’re as big a fan of the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney series by Capcom, then you’ll be excited for this one.
The other day there was news of the release date for the latest game, Ace Attorney 6, in Japan. I was sad when they didn’t mention North America because we already had two other Ace Attorney games that were not released outside of Japan: Gyakuten Kenji 2 (the sequel to Miles Edgeworth: Investigations) and Dai Gyakuten Saiban: Naruhodo Ryunosuke no Boken (a prequel to the Ace Attorney series).
I did not want them to hog the game in Japan.
But my prayers were answered the other day when My Nintendo News created the post about the release date of the game, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice.
The game will come to North America and Europe in September 2016. It will be digital only, meaning it will only be sold on the Nintendo 3DS’s eshop. There are mixed reviews about not having a physical copy, but I don’t mind it at all. As long as I get the game, I’m happy.
While I loved Apollo Justice and Dual Destinies, the games certainly weren’t the same as the original trilogy. I missed having Phoenix as the main lawyer. No, I am not complaining, I love every single character this series has thrown at me–good or bad. However, I am excited that Spirit of Justice will feature Phoenix as the main lawyer again.
Not only that, but Maya will be coming back alongside Detective Gumshoe and Miles Edgeworth. Apollo Justice will be there with (I think) Athena and Prosecutor Blackquill. I just hope that Pearl, Larry, and Trucy makes an appearance.
Here’s the trailer for the game:
Are you excited for this new game just as much as I am?
