The lights are on
Capcom has announced a new name for the game formerly known as Ace Attorney 5. From this day forth, let us all refer to it as Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies.
In addition to the new name, Capcom has released a newish trailer for the game. It's essentially the same one that was released last month, only now it's been translated to English. It explains how the game takes place eight years after Wright last appeared in court. In his first case, Wright has to figure out who planted an explosive that destroyed the courtroom. Fortunately, he has help from attorney Apollo Justice and associate attorney Athena Cykes. Cykes can analyze witnesses' moods, which can help Wright determine if they're telling the truth. In the duplicitous world of Phoenix Wright, that's a handy skill to have around.
And for a look at the game's 3D presentation and anime cutscenes, check out this earlier trailer. It's still in Japanese, but you should be able to sort your way through the basics. The title will be available this fall, but right now plans are for the release to be via 3DS eShop only.

I can't wait for this game, I am excited by that Fall 2013, that means we don't have to wait to long (hopefully) before we get it. Also I am enjoying the presentation of this game.
MUST. HAVE. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!
Whichever name they use, it'll be pretty good I am sure.
Hope Maya and Pearl make a return.
This is a serious GOTY contender for me.
I'm pretty bummed about the digital only release. I think its a big mistake that will definitely limit its appeal. Also, I hope I have enough for it on my memory card. Still I'm happy its coming and maybe we'll get Miles Edgeworth 2 and Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright if this does well.
I'm buying this as soon as it hits Eshop.
It's been too long since an Ace Attorney game came out. We welcome you, Dual Destinies!
