Today saw the playable premier of the newest game in the Ace Attorney series at the Tokyo Game Show —and it seems the dead just can’t seem to leave Phoenix and his trials alone.
Announced by Capcom, the newest numbered chapter to the Ace Attorney series takes our favorite lawyer, Phoenix Wright, to a land where there are no defense attorneys and the courtrooms have magic mirrors.
Ace Attorney is a series that covers dozens of trials across more than a century in its eight games. But with flashbacks galore, it can be a bit hard to keep track of how everything fits together. So here’s a nice little timeline to make it all come together.
With the release of Dai Gyakuten Saiban in Japan, there are now nine games in the Ace Attorney series. And one of the coolest things about the series is how they take the songs and remake them while still keeping a common musical theme from iteration to iteration.
There’s a new Phoenix Wright game out in Japan today, which would be cause for way more celebration if publisher Capcom would just announce it for English release already.
OBJECTION! Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy comes to the 3DS eShop on December 9. It'll be $30. Unless it's a technical disaster or something—and we'll keep an eye out for that—it'll probably be worth your time. The first three Phoenix Wright games are killer.

The Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney trilogy package is coming to the 3DS eShop this winter. Hell yes. Everyone in the world must play these games.
In 99.99% of cases, someone correcting someone else on the internet results in dick behaviour. In rare instances, though, we get to see magic happen.
This is so well-made. Probably not the hardest costume to create, but that means you can bring the small details to perfection. The cosplayer is a veteran called Elffi, and this is one of his latest works, Godot, the prosecutor from the Ace Attorney series.
Team Fortress characters in Ace Attorney's courtroom sure is one of the weirder Gmod mashups. YouTuber TFHK's video has almost all the Team Fortress 2 classes represented and yet it still somehow makes sense, even though it's just for laughs.
Is The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds really all that amazing? When will we actually see a Fallout 4 announcement? Are we suffering from a glut of lawyer simulators?
If you have ever wanted to pretend to be a lawyer and defend a whale accused of murder, today is the day for you.
A few years ago, I spent a weekend cranking through season 1 of 24. I don't regret this. Binge-watching is a beautiful experience.
OBJECTION! Here's the official launch trailer for Phoenix Wright: Dual Destinies, out today on the 3DS eShop. Whether you're a series veteran or a newcomer, this game is well worth your time. (Read my full review.)
