Originally released on the Game Boy Advance in Japan, the Ace Attorney series became widely popular after the games were released on the Nintendo DS. The Ace Attorney Trilogy sees players playing as Phoenix Wright as he solves some of his earlier cases. They are involved in intense courtroom showdowns by investigating crime scenes, collecting evidence, and questioning witnesses. Gamers use this evidence in the courtroom as they try to prove their client’s innocence. Players must find contradictions in witness’ testimonies in order to uncover the truth.
The latest game in the series, The Great Ace Attorney, will be released sometime next year. The game will also be playable at this year’s Jump Festa, giving players a chance to check out the new game’s features.
