Speak of the devil.

First 2 chapters are free with the rest running you for $10 total.

Is there a reason why Apollo Justice has yet to get a release on anything besides the DS? I mean, it's not as if it's unpractical; Both the Wii and iOS versions have case five, so it's not like they can't do all the DS specific gimmickry.

That's an excellent deal, and I would think that Ghost Trick would play very well on a touch screen device. Go get it, folks!

If I had to guess (and I do), I would say that the sales of AJ just weren't good enough. I don't think it's a coincidence that they followed Ace Attorney 4 up with a game that starred Miles Edgeworth and a bunch of people from the old cast.

That is some damn good news. Though despite my misgivings with his titular game, I hope they do something with Apollo instead of treating it like his game didn't count.

That would seriously be amazing and bump it up to a day one purchase for me (LOVED Ghost Trick).

I'm disappointed by the return to Phoenix as main character given that his story was pretty much done, here's to hoping that they might have him and Apollo trading cases at some point. Looking forward to more info either way.

Looks like they're bucking the trend of including a teen girl sidekick finally. Good! And any word yet on whether this and Ace Attorney Meets Professor Layton Meets The Flintstones will be coming over?

I am very excited about all this, though I do hope that Apollo hasn't been well and truly abandoned. We'll see.

This phrasing just makes me wish for a Phoenix Wright game to have a Yellowjacket Greenapple murder case he must solve using darkly ludicrous dream logic.

I'm very disappointed that Apollo Justice isn't the protagonist and that the guy who made Ace Attorney Investigations is involved, while Shu Takumi (the series creator and producer for the first 4 games) isn't.

But I am a sucker and want this anyway. I'm glad that she at least looks like an older woman and not another teenager-- Phoenix is over 30 years old now. At least it takes place after Apollo Justice? For a little while I was very worried that it would take place before Phoenix lost his badge. I wanna find out more about the unsolved mysteries in Apollo Justice's game! And how's he doing? And what about Trucy and Ema?!

I'm holding out hope for some kind of dual protagonist setup, and holding out extra hope for lotsa Trucy (人´∀`*)

I like that Phoenix is (somewhat ironically) much more laid-back in AJ than the original trilogy, but he also withholds critical information from Apollo in a few instances that only made sense because the writers wanted to play up the investigative drama as much as possible. I feel the same way about Ema's dialogue; they just treat you like shit for about two-thirds of the game (and I realize you're playing as a completely green, overzealous rookie lawyer, but still). At least Phoenix has the excuse of being disbarred; Ema just acts like a bitch because she's unhappy/bored with her job.

That and Zak's completely inconsistent characterization.

Yeah, including both somehow would be fun. Apollo kinda got short shrift, but I'd like to see him in action in a better game...

But that most likely means that Phoenix will have to defend Apollo after he's framed for murder, though.

What's weird is you just kind of go along with it until the big reveal in the last case, at which point you realize his actions are completely at odds with his motiviations when you actually look at them in chronological order. It felt like playing Anti-Memento: The Video Game.

I actually think that's way more justified. I get that Phoenix isn't completely disgraced, he just acts like it, but the idea that he'd be allowed to...do everything he does in the last case is way beyond absurd, and the way he figures out everything way before Apollo does is just dumb and irritating.

You would think Phoenix, of all people, would understand the grief that he's putting Apollo through by simply not confirming some of the very basic facts of the case. It's not just that he expects Apollo to sniff out the truth, but he actually refuses to answer specific questions that would've confirmed Apollo's investigative work up to that point, for no other reason besides the writers wanting to characterize him as cool and enigmatic.

Why are you such a jerk Phoenix

I don't even want to think about the nightmare that would go down if AA5 doesn't get localized.

Word is we may get an update at TGS.

Phoenix is looking rather snazzy there. Is he finally making some decent money?

Told my wife (an Ace Attorney fan) about the announcement and the new partner. Her response: "Oh, are HER boobs gonna grow huge, too?"

Hmm. So I guess this takes place between Trials-Tribulations and Apollo Justice? Or maybe they just retcon AJ out of existence.

I enjoyed AJ, but I suspect that has a lot to do with the fact that it's the first Ace Attorney game I've played. Since then, I had went back and played the three Phoenix games...and yeah, I probably would've been a lot more disappointed if I played the series in order. Still got the best opening case, though.

I wonder what yellow-jacket's gimmick is. Ridiculous hairstyle aside, she seems a lot more normal than our previous medium/magician/ninja-thief sidekicks.
