Everything you need to know about Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice is not too far off now, so Capcom has produced a lengthy informative trailer to get you up to speed on this latest adventure.

In the distant land of definitely-not-Tibet, Phoenix Wright must contend with a legal system in which the psychic abilities give the dead a chance to testify, and people call him “foolish foreign lawyer”. (That sounds a lot better in Japanese than it does in English, but that is of course the least of Ace Attorney’s localisation problems.) Wright is joined by an old friend, but as ever events take a turn for the dramatic.

Meanwhile, Apollo Justice and Athena Cykes must keep the practice open and functioning in their boss’s absence, even though nobody knows how to restart the router and the tea room petty cash is down to loose change. Can they get it together, or will Phoenix come home to find a total shambles just like every time Matt goes on vacation?

Find out for yourself when Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice releases in September on 3DS. It’s eShop only this time.
