Capcom's Nintendo DS crime-y, puzzle-solving-y, lawyer-y and courtroom drama-y game Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney is getting a sequel.
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Justice For All, as the new DS game is called, finds defense attorney Wright tackling four new cases littered with fresh characters. As with the first game, you'll be navigating the game interface via the touchscreen, collecting evidence, cross-examining key witnesses to the crimes, analysing testimonies and ultimately attempting to serve justice.
In addition, Justice for All has new gameplay features, including Psyche-Lock and a new life bar that represents Phoenix's status in court. Elaborating on Psyche-Lock, Capcom has explained that "some witnesses may be keeping the truth under tight lock and key (aka the "Psyche-Lock" state), so in order to break them down, successfully open up their Psyche-Locks with a series of correct questions or catch them on their inconsistent testimony," and has this to say about the new life bar:
"...by presenting incorrect evidence or following misguided attempts to break Psyche-Locks, Phoenix's life bar will go down; the only way to regain this stat is to successfully open a witness's Psyche-Lock".
So far, Capcom has only announced Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Justice For All for North America, where it'll release in early 2007. We'll be sure to keep hitting Capcom on the head with a gavel and demanding a release for Europe.
