Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies will be available for the 3DS via Nintendo’s eShop in Spring, Capcom has announced.

Previously known as Ace Attorney 5, the game sees courtroom hero Phoenix Wright back in action, eight years after his last court appearance.

Its first case takes place in a destroyed court room, and it’s down to Phoenix and his team 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.

Joining Phoenix is the young Attorney Apollo Justice and new Associate Attorney Athena Cykes. Athena has an ability to psychoanalyse witnesses, which allows the detection of their true emotional states. Players can compare these feelings with the statements given by the witness, point out any contradictions between the two, and challenge the witness testimony.

Dual Destinies will use the handheld’s 3D capability, which will make it possible to change views and zoom in on areas to uncover any hidden evidence or clues.
