New Ace Attorney trailer takes the stand

A trailer for the fifth game in the Ace Attorney series, Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth, has been released today by Capcom, alongside the announcement that the game will be released in North America early next year.

In this third-person spin-off from the previous Ace Attorney games, players will take the role of Phoenix Wright’s former rival Miles Edgeworth. Working with the police, Edgeworth will investigate crime scenes while solving the puzzles laid before him in order to bring the criminals to justice.

The trailer shows off the game’s new format and introduces several other main characters in the game, including Kay Faraday and Detective Dick Gumshoe. The video also highlights Edgeworth’s reliance on logic and deduction in order to devise a convincing case.

Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth was previously announced for a European release towards the end of 2009, and will hit stores in North America on February 16, 2010.

I just played Miles Edgeworth 20 minute demo at Comic Con and it’s was fun.  There is a different interface where you move Miles around using the stylus and investigate certain points.  Then you use “logic” to connect the right thoughts together to move the story forward.  Dick Gumshoe followed Miles around “helping” him.  The dialogue was cheeky and fun!  The opening story begins with a murder in Miles office.  I could hardly wait to finish playing it!

I asked the producer if they may release a special edition just like they did in Japan with the art work.  They’re “considering” it, but I got the sense that it would be no.

Harald B, I suspect the trailer doesn’t show any court footage since it’ll be much of the same. They want to focus on the new gameplay style to show off their different take on the series.

Strange not to see any in-court scenes yet. Could they really be cutting court segments altogether? I guess it will be great either way, but it would sure feel weird.

I like the Logic mechanic. It looks like one of those rare innovations many adventure games would benefit from.
