Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Justice for All
for the Nintendo DS is on the Case

Court is back in session as Capcom today
announced that Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Justice For All for the Nintendo DS
has shipped to retailers across North America. 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. Phoenix Wright: Ace
Attorney Justice For All carries a “T” rating for teen audiences by the ESRB
(Entertainment Software Rating Board) with a suggested retail price of $29.99.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Justice For All
includes the following features:

  • Play from the first person perspective through
    four shocking new cases
  • Two distinct gameplay segments:
    • Investigation phase – survey crime scenes,
      interview witnesses and gather evidence that will be used in court
    • Court phase – present findings from the
      investigation to support your case, listen to testimonies, examine
      witnesses, and determine what is fact from fiction so you can prove your
      client’s innocence
  • New “Psyche-Lock” feature – 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 statements
  • New life bar 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
  • Use the DS touch screen to navigate the game’s
    interface and become deeply involved in court room proceedings by using the
    microphone to yell “Objection,” “Take that” and more!

Colorful cast of characters include both new and
familiar faces

  • Phoenix Wright – the game’s main character who
    is a defense lawyer with a keen sense for discerning fact from fiction
  • Franziska
    von Karma – the new D.A. and daughter of former adversary, Manfred von Karma,
    is on the warpath to take Phoenix down and avenge her father by any means
  • Maya Fey – having honed her psychic powers,
    she is now a mystic of the Kurain Channeling Technique and will continue to be
    a valuable ally for Phoenix in his trials
  • Pearl Fey – Maya’s cousin is an up and coming
    psychic herself and looks up to her as a role model
