Phoenix Wright is back in judicial action this fall. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies will bring the shouty defense attorney back to the courtroom for the first time in years in an eShop title for 3DS.
Dual Destinies is download-only in North America and Europe. That doesn't mean Capcom's scaling the game itself back, though.
It's presented in full 3D, a first for the series, with cel-shaded characters and environments that mimic the previous games' distinct art style. Three-dimensional graphics means more interactive investigation scenes and clues to find.
Even Mr. Wright's meat-and-potatoes--intense courtroom cross-examinations--are aided by a new junior associate named Athena Cykes. Ms. Cykes uses some kind of future law technology to decode witnesses' testimony onto a "mood matrix."
Knowing whether witnesses are happy, sad, angry, or surprised on the stand is an effective new way to catch contradictions before that oh-so-important "OBJECTION!"
