As promised, Capcom hosted today a “Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney series – 15th Anniversary Commemoration” live event on Niconico, with Motohide Eshiro (Producer), Takeshi Yamazaki (Director) and the voice actors of Phoenix Wright and Ryunosuke Naruhodo. This special event was the perfect occasion to share new video content and informations on the upcoming The Great Ace Attorney 2, currently in development for Nintendo 3DS. Here it comes!

Story details

In the midst of tense diplomatic relations between the Empire of Japan and the British Empire, an incident occurred… a British exchange student woman is found dead on the beach. At the time of the incident, Haori Murasame – female student at Teito Yuumei University – was alone with the victim, so she got arrested. No lawyer was expected to come forward to defend her in a case that could turn into an issue of diplomatic relations. But here comes Ryutaro Naruhodo, Ryunosuke’s cousin. He’s studying law at a local university and takes on the courtroom holding the “Resolution” hidden within his school uniform close to his chest.
