Trials and Tribulations await Phoenix Wright

The decision to port a third installment of the popular Phoenix Wright series to the Nintendo DS proved to be no contest for Capcom, and the publisher announced yesterday that Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney -- Trials and Tribulations will be coming to North America this September.

Following the success of Ace Attorney and Justice for All, the new game will once again cast players in the role of Phoenix Wright, an awkward but spunky defense lawyer whose clients always face seemingly insurmountable evidence. This time around, players will also get to play as Phoenix's mentor Mia Fey, as Trials and Tribulations explores "both the past and present of the idiosyncratic lawyer" in what Capcom calls "the completion of Phoenix Wright's story".

In Trials and Tribulations, "Phoenix will face the toughest prosecutor yet as the mysterious hard-boiled 'Godot' will try to take him down at any cost. The complete story of Phoenix Wright comes together as truths are revealed in twisting storylines and intriguing gameplay. Players must collect evidence, survey crime scenes, weed through inconsistent testimonies, and overcome corrupt agendas to ensure that justice prevails."

A trailer of the upcoming game has also been released, which you can stream at IGN.
