Capcom has released a brand new trailer for the forthcoming Ace Attorney 6. As you would expect, the trailer is in Japanese, but subtitles have been added, so be sure to enable annotations! It would also seem as though a worldwide release for the latest Phoenix Wright adventure is planned.
One of the announcements that graced the stage at this year’s Tokyo Game Show was that Ace Attorney is getting an anime and it will air on April 2016 in Japan. Capcom wouldn’t reveal any details, but they did showcase key characters which include Phoenix Wright, Maya Fey, and Miles Edgeworth. We should get more details regarding the Ace Attorney anime in the near future.
Thanks, Revolver Ocelot and Takamaru64
A new trailer for Project X Zone 2 has emerged from the 2015 Tokyo Game Show (TGS).

Project X Zone 2 launches for Nintendo 3DS on November 12 in Japan and in 2016 in North America, Europe and Australia.
Capcom has lifted the lid on the software titles it plans to showcase at this year’s Tokyo Game Show 2015. There are of course plenty of Monster Hunter related titles including Monster Hunter X – which is the next mainline Monster Hunter game. Of course, these are only the announced titles that the publisher and developer plans to show, so there could well be plenty of surprises for everyone. The Tokyo Game Show takes place on September 17th till September 20th.

Wired magazine was one of a number of publications that got some quality time with the new Nintendo 3DS at this year’s Tokyo Game Show. The publication says that the device is very similar to the one you possibly already own and that the recently introduced C-Stick feels “out of place in relation to where it sits next to the buttons.” You can read their detailed impressions, right here.
“The—stick? nub?—feels out of place, in relation to where it sits next to the buttons. The PlayStation 4 controller, the Xbox controller, even the PlayStation Vita all feel comfortable in my hands whether my thumb is resting on the right stick or the buttons. But with New 3DS, the nub isjust a bit too far out of the way to reach comfortably. (I tried the XL size of the new handheld, so the smaller size might end up feeling more comfortable.)”
“Yes, the right stick is a better camera controller than the virtual controls on the 3DS touch screen. But Monster Hunter, by design, already lets you “lock on” to targets and quickly center the camera on your prey. The extra shoulder buttons didn’t have any functions assigned to them. The improved 3-D was nice, but I’m not sure it’s nice enough to get me to switch back from playing all 3DS games in the 2-D mode.”
“Nintendo has announced that it will create software that will only function on the New 3DS, the first one being a port of the acclaimed Wii role-playing game Xenoblade Chronicles. But at launch, if Monster Hunter is the big draw, then I’m not sold. If I were in the market for a 3DS, I’d go for the latest model. But as an early adopter who has already bought three different iterations of the 3DS hardware since it launched in 2011, New 3DS isn’t that attractive to me yet.”
