phoenix-wright-soj-maya-artCapcom recently shared new details about their upcoming Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice. During the 2016 Anime Expo, producer Motohide Eshiro revealed that series favorites will be making their return when the game launches later this year!

Maya Fey, pictured here, is one of the returning characters. Unfortunately for her, not all is as it seems. While training in the Kingdom of Khura’in, Maya gets caught up in a crime drama; not long after reuniting with her, Phoenix is thrown into the thick of things and must defend her in court. Players will have to use all of their skills if they hope to get them out of this foreign land alive. Then there’s Athena Cykes (who made her debut in Dual Destinies). Using her ability to psychoanalyze emotions, she’ll once again be tasked with finding the truth behind witnesses’ testimonies.  

Of course, being that this is new Ace Attorney game, there must be new faces. Nahyuta Sahdmadhi, a devout monk/pious prosecutor, seeks justice for the victims of heinous crimes by using unique religious rituals. Not sure how that would work in a court of law but ok. Sahdmadhi has an international license, which means he can practice law in the US and in Khura’in. Assuming Phoenix doesn’t have such a license, this new prosecutor may prove to be a tough rival – or at the very least, annoying.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice will be available this September on the 3DS. We certainly won’t “OBJECT” if you kept it locked here...you know, for gaming news and such!
