Ace Attorney 6 gets June release date in Japan

The sixth game in the Ace Attorney series will see Phoenix Wright return to the courtroom in just a few short months in Japan, with Capcom unveiling a new set of trailers late Saturday night.


Saturday night was an eventful one for Capcom in Japan, as the publisher has released a pair of new Japanese trailers for the next game in the Ace Attorney series. The latest Ace Attorney 6 trailers offer a glimpse at some returning characters from Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies, while also offering a glimpse at a few returning ones. Oh, there's also a release date pegged for Japan.

The mighty litigious threesome of Phoenix Wright, Apollo Justice, and Athena Cykes all look to make their return in all-new cases. Supporting characters like Miles Edgeworth and Maya Fey (the latter of whom was noticeably absent from Dual Destinies) will also be returning to play a role in Phoenix's next round of trials, along with a new character wielding a staff. According to Gematsu, this character's name is Potdino Niwackus.

Ace Attorney 6 is in line to hit Nintendo 3DS in Japan on June 6. There's no word on a North American release date, but considering that's close to E3 time, an English version may not be far behind that. Check out both new trailers below. Not only are the colors and animations looking noticeably sharper, but the top one details a special edition that features two additional case scenarios.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
