Update: you will find more details, a Special Court skit and gameplay footage for the DLC in this post!
Today, Capcom was supposed to make some announcements during a livestream, but it looks like we will not have to wait for that livestream before getting the announcements. Indeed, Famitsu seems to have revealed pretty much everything that was to be revealed during the livestream, complete with screenshots.
First, it was revealed that Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice would get more free DLC, with a case called Turnabout Across Time. This case sees the return of Larry Butz and Miles Edgeworth (who are Phoenix Wright’s childhood friends), but also Maya Fey as Phoenix’s assistant. This extra case include both investigation and court parts.
This case seems to be a throwback to the original Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney era. It will be available for free from June 30th to July 20th, and will become paid after that.
It will be properly revealed later today, during a livestream, with a Special Court video:
This year, the Ace Attorney series celebrates its 15th Anniversary. As part of the celebrations, Good Smile Company will release a figma figure of Phoenix Wright. Unfortunately, we don’t have a release date or even pictures of the finished figure.
Head after the break for the rest of this post!
Puzzle & Dragons collaboration
To promote Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice, Capcom has decided to have a collaboration with the popular Puzzle & Dragons game on smartphones. From June 6th to June 12th, there will a special Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice Ranking Dungeon, with characters such as Phoenix Wright appearing (more will be revealed at a later date).
Capcom not one but three Mystery Rally games, in collaboration with the railway company of Toukai, Kansai, and Kanto. They all feature an original story, created by the developers of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice. More details about those Mystery Rally games can be found in Japanese on this page!
If railways are not your thing, you can always try out the Mystery Quiz that will be available from the Tsutaya de DS hotspots from June 9th to August 31st. If you bring your Nintendo 3DS to a Tsutaya store, you will be able to take that quiz. And if you manage to beat it, you will even receive a present!
If all these legal matters make you hungy, you will be able to enjoy some special collaboration menu at the Bar Rhythm, Pasela Resorts and Capcom Bar locations. You can find more details (in Japanese) on this page!
Finally, here’s various Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice goodies releasing in Japan:
