LAS VEGAS February 2, 2005 — All rise! Capcom® today announced Phoenix Write: Ace Attorney for Nintendo DS, the first in the popular court room battle series from Japan to be released in the US. While the series' previous three entries appeared on the Game Boy® Advance system in Japan, this marks its debut on the Nintendo DS. Not everyone is innocent until proven guilty! Players star as a defense attorney, who must prove his seemingly guilty client's innocence no matter how dire the circumstances may seem. The game presents twisting storylines and intriguing gameplay in a comical anime style. Players must collect evidence, weed through inconsistent testimonies, and overcome corrupt agendas to ensure that justice prevails. Capcom plans to release Phoenix Write: Ace Attorney across North America this summer.

Phoenix Write: Ace Attorney includes the following features:

  • Game plays from first person perspective
  • 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
  • Colorful cast of characters
    • Phoenix Wright “ the game's main character who is an accomplished defense lawyer with a keen sense for discerning fact from truth
    • Maya Fey “ a bright young girl that aids Phoenix in his trials; she is learning to harness her psychic powers which will prove useful in a pinch
    • Mia Fey “ an ace attorney who taught Phoenix everything she knows about the courtroom and continues to support him as a mentor
    • Miles Edgeworth “ Phoenix's arch rival, this slick prosecutor has never lost a case; his intense hatred for criminal behavior drives him to use any means to ensure a guilty verdict
