Capcom Confirms That Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies Will Be Heading To US/EU This Fall!

Phoenix Wright 5

Earlier today, Capcom confirmed that the 5th entry of the beloved Ace Attorney series will be heading to the U.S and Europe. Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney – Dual Destines will be arriving on the Nintendo 3DS’ eShop this Fall…

Yep, you read that right. The latest entry in the series will only be available digitally this time around. While I am sure this is to due to the fact that the series has never been a “bestseller” outside of Japan, I still wish I had the option to purchase a physical copy as well. However, at the end of the day a digital release is definitely much better than no release at all.

Dual Destinies will once again star the titular hero, Phoenix Wright as he heads back to the courtroom after an 8 year hiatus. He will be joined by some old faces (Apollo Justice) as well as some new ones. One of these new additions to the cast will be Associate Attorney Athena Cykes, who through her “Mood Matrix” we will be able to peer into the suspects emotional state, helping you determine if someone is lying through their teeth.

The new entry will also will also take full advantage of the 3D capabilities of the 3DS. So expect some interesting investigation portions (such as examining clues and evidence) as well as some gorgeous visuals. Capcom also has confirmed that a playable and localized version of the game will be available at this years E3 and gamers will get an exclusive hands-on as well.

For those of you who are as excited as I am, here is the new trailer that Capcom debuted as well today:
