Capcom takes offense with Perfect Prosecutor

Step aside, Ace Attorney, and make way for the new star of the courtroom, the Perfect Prosecutor.

The latest issue of Japanese magazine Famitsu has revealed the first glimpse of the Ace Attorney spin-off from Capcom, starring none other than Phoenix Wright's original opponent, Miles Edgeworth. Although details of the new game for the Nintendo DS are still very sketchy, the new game will reportedly focus more on the collection of evidence, as befits the role of a prosecutor. Controlling Edgeworth, players will need to search for overlooked evidence and inconsistencies at the crime scene using new search and deduction systems introduced in this game. Helping out will be another familiar face, as Detective Dick Gumshoe will also appear in Perfect Prosecutor.

As seen in the first images from the game, Perfect Prosecutor will allow players to guide Edgeworth on screen in full third-person perspective, which is a departure from the first-person Ace Attorney investigation segments.

The chance to play as Edgeworth is reason enough for us to keep a close eye on this game, so stay tuned for any new developments. For now these are the only details available, and there has been no official confirmation of an English-language version of the game. Given the popularity of the Ace Attorney series, however, it seems likely that Perfect Prosecutor will reach a Western audience some time after a Japanese release.

Either that, or if they include a English Language selectable like they did with the GS1 GS2 and GS3 DS ports, then just import the Japanese game from like Play-Asia. ^_^

They should package it with a Shark DVD boxset.

Just saw this on another site and was coming to post it in the forums… Looks awesome. I’m a bit of a latecomer to the Phoenix Wright series (Just finished No. 2 and about to start 3), but I love Edgeworth and Gumshoe, and like third person adventures more than first person. This should be awesome.

OBJECTION!
