Releasing a new video, Capcom announced that Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies, previously announced for the West as Ace Attorney 5, is available now for Nintendo 3DS across Europe and North America on October 24th priced at $29.99 / €24.99. Set eight years since his last appearance in the courts, the first case in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies sees the action start in a destroyed court room. It is down to Phoenix Wright and his team at the Wright Anything Agency to discover the cause of the destruction. Players will have to battle it out in court against Gaspen Payne, the younger brother of Winston Payne from previous Ace Attorney titles, as they defend the accused.
Players will need to investigate each crime scene with dynamic 3D visuals, making it possible to change views and zoom-in on areas to uncover any hidden evidence or clues. The drama continues in the court room as players present their evidence, challenge witnesses and begin to unravel the truth behind each of the cases in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies.
Joining Phoenix is the young Attorney Apollo Justice and new Associate Attorney Athena Cykes. Athena's unique ability to psychoanalyse witnesses introduces a brand new element to proceedings. Using Athena's ‘Mood Matrix' players can detect the emotional state of a witness and tell whether they're surprised, angry, happy or sad. Players can compare these feelings with the statement given by the witness, point out any contradictions between the two and challenge the witness testimony.
Anyone purchasing Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies between October 24 and November 7 will receive a costume pack containing an alternative outfit for each of the three main characters; Phoenix Wright, Apollo Justice and Athena Cykes for absolutely free of charge. Thereafter the costume pack will be available to purchase for €0.99. An additional episode, Turnabout Reclaimed, which sees Phoenix meet pirate Sasha Buckler and defending a whale named Orla, will be available to purchase in the coming weeks.
