The latest Ace Attorney title is coming west later this year – but not on cartridge.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice gets 3DS eShop release date

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice is the sixth core entry in the Ace Attorney series. It releases in Japan in June, and Capcom won’t keep western fans waiting for long.

Unfortunately it looks like we won’t get a retail release, something we’re coming to expect, but come September you can grab Spirit of Justice from the 3DS eShop for MSRP of $30/£25/€30.

Here’s Capcom’s description of the new entry:

In the kingdom of Khura’in, Phoenix Wright faces his greatest challenge yet – a court system without lawyers. It’s up to Phoenix to turn things around while making sense of Khura’inese law and the mysterious Divination Séance that can determine a person’s guilt by showing the victim’s last moments.

Apollo Justice returns, and faces various challenges as he watches over Wright Anything Agency. Meanwhile, Phoenix Wright must pick out the discrepancies between what he observes of the end of a victim’s life using the Divination Séance, and what is revealed through the the Royal Priestess’s Insight.

Capcom has promised more information over the next few months.
