New and returning characters take to the stand in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice
Producer Motohide Eshiro – speaking at Anime Expo 2016 – has revealed some character details for the upcoming Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice.
Fan favourite Maya Fey will be returning but is now caught up in a crime drama of her own. It looks like it will be Phoenix to the rescue, this time having to demonstrate his skills in a foreign courtroom.
Another returning character is Athena Cykes, who made her debut in the previous game in the series, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies. The rookie attorney will be supporting Apollo once again with her weird ability to analyse emotions and discover the truth behind the emotional cues found in witnesses’ testimony.
And there are some new characters on the way too. New to the series is prosecutor Nahyuta Sahdmadhi, a devout monk who comes apparently pre-bundled with the catchphrase, “Satorha!”.
Check out the latest trailer to see Phoenix, Apollo and May in action.
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney − Spirit of Justice comes to Nintendo eShop in Europe and North America in September, 2016.
We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
