Capcom have announced that Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice, also known as Ace Attorney 6, will be launched this September.

Along with the news of the release date, it has also been confirmed that like its predecessor. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies, the title will be digital only and downloadable via the eShop. The price will be £24.99 / $29.99 / €29.99. Here’s the Press Release below:

“SAN FRANCISCO — May 11, 2016 — Today, Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, has confirmed that the much-anticipated next instalment in the Ace Attorney® courtroom drama series will make its way to North America and Europe as Phoenix Wright®: Ace Attorney® – Spirit of Justice. This narrative adventure stars beloved defense attorneys Phoenix Wright and Apollo Justice and sees the return of many familiar faces alongside some interesting new additions. The title will be released as a digital download in the Nintendo eShop for the Nintendo 3DS™ family of systems in North America and Europe in September this year at an MSRP of $29.99 / £24.99 / €29.99.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice sees Phoenix in a brand new location: a courtroom situated in the Kingdom of Khura’in, origin of the Kurain Channeling Technique, where mysterious séance trials decide the fate of all defendants. Brand new to the series is the Divination Séance gameplay mechanic that allows the player to revisit the last moments of a victim’s life. Players must fight to unravel the discrepancies and contradictions between the Royal Priestess’s Insight and what is shown in the séance. Meanwhile, defense attorney Apollo Justice faces his own challenges holding down the fort at the Wright Anything Agency, as he takes on a case that will have explosive implications. Both our heroes are joined by a host of returning friends and adversaries in their fight to bring about justice.

The new game is filled with puzzling cases to solve using popular investigative techniques from previous instalments. More details on gameplay features will be revealed in the coming months, so stay tuned!”

  1. Seen this shit coming smile away because of what happened with Dual Destinies in the past.

    Still excited for another of Phoenix’s biggest case.

  2. Goddammit Cashcom ! just give us a physical version as those games deserve it

  3. Going digital only on a Nintendo home console & handheld is a very bad idea. Better hope your system doesn’t fuck up beyond repair. Otherwise, your shit is stuck on that thing because of the dinosaur means of transferring save data & digital purchases.

    1. Speaking of, I should probably look into getting a new n3DS XL soon since I’ve had my current one for at least over a year now. If only Nintendo’s product quality didn’t take a nose dive in the last two gens. :/

      1. Tell me about it. My N3DS’s top screen has so many cuts and lines in it that I have no idea how they got there. Not to mention its speakers have been fucked up since I bought it and everything sounds tinny and echo-y past a certain threshold (the Tephra Cave music in XC3D was ear rape with that problem).

      Then go buy the Japanese physical retail cartridge. There problem solved. If you want to play it then I guess you have to invest more money in the digital copy for a NA/ EU copy and play that I guess…
