Justice For All! Another Phoenix Wright In 2007

Court is back in session as Capcom today announced Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Justice For All for the Nintendo DS. The second game in the popular court room battle series from Japan introduces four new cases featuring new characters, plot twists and gameplay features. Players resume the role of Phoenix Wright, a defense attorney who must prove his client’s innocence against the toughest of odds and most ruthless of adversaries. Players must exercise their legal prowess as they collect evidence, examine witnesses, analyze testimonies and seek the truth to ensure that justice prevails. The game is characterized by its memorable characters, engaging storylines and unique gameplay format, all presented in a comical anime style. Capcom plans to release Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Justice For All across North America in Q1 2007.

New Features Include
– “Psyche-Lock” – 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
– “New life bar” – This represents Phoenix’s status in court – 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

The Cast
– Phoenix Wright – the game’s main character who is a defense lawyer with a keen sense for discerning fact from truth
