Ace Attorney Investigations:
Miles Edgeworth Headed to Nintendo DS this Winter

New Direction, Gameplay for
Capcom’s Portable Legal Adventure Series Coming this Winter

Capcom Entertainment today announced
that Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth is scheduled for release on
Nintendo DS in North America this winter. Ace Attorney Investigations is the
newest offering in Capcom’s successful Ace Attorney franchise, swapping the
stage of a courtroom for a crime scene, and getting to the bottom of cases that
will test the skills of eagle-eyed players with challenges developed for
Nintendo DS.

Ace Attorney Investigations sheds
light on the other side of the judicial system with a whole new gameplay dynamic
to the world of Ace Attorney. As Miles Edgeworth, users will investigate various
locations, work directly with characters on the scene, find contradictions, and
get to the truth by presenting decisive evidence. Miles Edgeworth can also make
use of the all-new “Logic” system, in which he chooses two pieces of information
out of the various pieces he has collected and “combines” them to discover new
information. Ace Attorney Investigations features several lengthy, interrelated
episodes that will challenge players to use their minds to solve the series of
crimes that have been committed around Miles Edgeworth.

As with the intense courtroom
battles that have become a staple of the Ace Attorney series, using collected
information and confronting suspicious characters, Miles Edgeworth will arrive
at the truth. And with Capcom’s Motohide Eshiro at the helm (known for his work
as the director of Onimusha 2, Shadow of Rome, and co-producer of Phoenix
Wright: Ace Attorney – Justice for All and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Trials
and Tribulations) this could be the best Ace Attorney adventure yet!

Miles Edgeworth is the famed rival
prosecutor of court-house-dynamo Phoenix Wright, star of the first three Ace
Attorney games. Since becoming the youngest prosecutor in the country at the
tender age of 20, Miles Edgeworth built quite a reputation for himself by
putting away bad guys in short order. However, after several confrontations
against Wright, he has changed his approach to seeking the truth. Unfortunately,
Wright was only the beginning of his troubles. In Ace Attorney Investigations:
Miles Edgeworth, the flashy prosecutor in the wine red suit is plagued by a
series of deaths that seem to follow him wherever he goes. To obtain the truth,
Miles Edgeworth will take center stage in an exciting suspense-filled drama that
requires him to dive into the mysterious world of crime scene investigation.
