I'm not really sure what the chain of command is in this group, but I went ahead and made Athena and Blackquill their own folders because they really needed them.  If there are other folders you think we need, Feel free to mention them here and we'll take them under consideration.

Also, we've been slow lately, and I apologize on behalf of the staff for that, especially given the excitement of the new game.  If your submission has expired, feel free to resubmit it.  If your deviation is not allowed, you will be specifically denied, and we try to give you a specific reason.   Just a reminder, this club doesn't allow official Capcom art, official sprites, or works that include other people's fanart without permission.

Also, in game news, the final trial, Turnabout Reclaimed, Is being released on November 21st and is listed at €4.99 / $5.99 / £3.99.  I haven't played it, but it's the first case Phoenix took upon getting his badge back.  Finishing the case will unlock Phoenix's pink college day "Feenie" outfit as an alternate costume. I know I'm really excited!

EDIT: We also have an Ema Skye folder now.  None of the new folders are showing up yet, though so until they go through I guess please keep submitting those characters to Other and know that they'll be moved.  In the meantime, all the images that are out of storage should have been moved to their proper folders.


:star: EDIT 11/10: Game release underway!

Also, run over HERE to download ringtones of your favorite characters shouting "OBJECTION!" and "HOLD IT!" and "TAKE THAT!"

Everything You Need To Know About Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies

Hello everyone! It's been a while- and there's been a lot of exciting news regarding Gyakuten Saiban 5, or Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies for us western folk!

Hopefully this journal will be a comprehensive culmination of all the news so far.

:bulletred: All Released Videos to Date

:bulletblue: Format Information

  1. The game is for the Nintendo 3DS This means that investigating crime scenes will be just as intense... but in 3D! Likewise, the OBJECTION!! point will be just as intense as well... only in 3D!

  2. Aren't you getting the shivers?
  3. It will be released digitally at first. Players will be able to buy/download the game via the Nintendo Store.
  4. There are no planned English physical releases as of yet, but if fans push the notion enough, Capcom may listen.
  5. The game is made to be more user-friendly to new and old players alike.
  6. There will be voiced and animated cutscenes! These are shown in some of the trailers mentioned above.
  7. There will be two save files!
  8. Investigation Memos will help you during investigation mode with a checklist of things to do!
  9. If you're running low on health in the courtroom, you can ask your partner for hints by pressing the X button.
  10. There will be voice acting. Sam Riegel is confirmed as Phoenix's VA.
  11. Release is scheduled for Fall 2013 in the western world! The JP release is scheduled for July the 25th. It has been released on the JP eShop as of the 24th of July!
  12. The game itself, as a digital download, takes up 580MB of space.
  13. The game's US ESRB Rating is Mature. The game's EU rating is PEGI 16. Not exactly sure why yet, but I'm sure this will be clarified.
  14. The European Release will only feature an English localization. This, sadly, means that many non-English speaking Ace Attorney fans will be deprived of Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies.
  15. :target:   If you'd like to help with the effort for a multilingual and physically released Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies, please do sign this Petition!

:bulletyellow: Important Plot Points

  1. The theme is "Dark Days of the Courtroom" The very first case involves a courtroom bombing, and the Jurist system is no longer in place.
  2. Phoenix is back! And with a dapper new look, too! The hoodie and hat have been replaced by a smart new waistcoat and slightly modified hairstyle. And where's the hat? Hanging around on the trophy next to Charley the plant, of course! You'll see it to the right of characters' heads in the Wright Anything Agency.

  3. Apollo's back, too! He will be shown in his traditional vest and rolled up sleeves, but only briefly- the court bombing (apparently) leads to his more bandaged personage, and also his departure from the Wright Anything Agency. He also has a casual outfit!!
    [EDIT:] Apollo's casual outfit is Japan-only downloadable content. Thanks to petermueller88!

  4. You will be able to play as both PHOENIX and APOLLO, So for those of you who are avid Apollo fans, there's no need to worry! Athena Cykes is also a playable character.
  5. Athena Cykes, or Kidzuki Kokone, as some know her, is the new lively sidekick. She specializes in analytical psychology, a skill she uses in cross examination. Her "skill" is called the Mood Matrix, and she uses this to help pinpoint "unusual" emotions coming from the witness in question, especially behind certain words in the witness' speech. Her unusual necklace is the key to the mood matrix. NEW: She is the main character of case 3, with Apollo by her side as her sidekick!

    She also looks super cute in her school uniform:

    [EDIT:] Athena's school uniform is Japan-only downloadable content. Thanks to petermueller88!

  6. Never fear, Trucy fans. Trucy Wright is back as well- along with her magic panties!

    She apparently has a more mature way of speech in the Japanese version of the game, given that it takes place one year after the Apollo Justice timeline.
  7. Simon Blackquill, or Jin Yuugami, is the new Prosecutor. (Winston Payne's brother, Gaspen Payne (?) features as well, but, in the Ace Attorney tradition, the darker Payne will only show up in the first case.) He is a convicted prosecutor who uses psychological tricks to manipulate others- including the Judge. You can see that the theme "Dark Days of the Courtroom" is strong in this one. Simon keeps a rather menacing pet hawk as a companion, as well.

    You can see the hawk in this image below.

    This is "Dark Payne", if anyone was wondering:
  8. The ever-fan favorite, Miles Edgeworth, returns in AA5! He is now the Head Prosecutor, and, just as the fans speculated, he dons glasses, a long coat, and a double-breasted waistcoat. He is prosecutor in (apparently) Case #2.

    Also, have a cutscene gif:

    He'll also be facing Wright in court once again!

    As you may see, Edgeworth's glasses are not on in the courtroom. I personally speculate that he's near-sighted, so he can read things close up but not far away.
  9. Klavier Gavin is returning as well. As you can see from the below image, he is shown in a screen capture from (presumably) a court lobby. He will also most likely be featured in a case or two.

  10. Detective Bobby Fulbright, also known as Gouzou Ban, is the new presiding detective! His motto? "In Justice we trust!" It seems that he works with Blackquill on cases, but is unaffected by the prosecutor's psychological tricks because he is simply too dense.

  11. Pearl Fey will appear at some point in the game! This is screen capture confirmed:

    She has a more grown up hairstyle, wouldn't you say?
  12. Capcom is keeping mum about whether Maya Fey will appear or not. However, it is almost certain that, with Detective Fulbright taking his place, Detective Gumshoe will not appear. Keep in mind, however, this is all tentative information!
  13. The title "Dual Destinies" means something. Post-bombing (assumedly) Apollo leaves the Wright Anything Agency, signaling the separation of the ways of Phoenix Wright and Apollo Justice, hence "dual destinies".
  14. The stepladder jokes are back!
  15. AA:DD isn't the end of the Ace Attorney series! This means that there are still more games to come, if all goes well!


Looks like Capcom has a kick-ass game in store for us this fall! Let's fight for that physical release and for our European friends to have the localizations they deserve!

:target:   Here's the petition again, just in case you didn't see it the first time.

All the information above was salvaged from Tumblr, and several other gaming sites- if there's anything I may have left out, please do comment about it!



[UPDATE- 20/09/12] The new GS5 Trailer was released at the recent Tokyo Game Show! The unnamed sidekick, nicknamed "Branch Hair" by fans, has been announced to be Kidzuki Kokone! The silhouette of a possible new court opponent are also shown in the last section of the video. There are also apparently animated cut-scenes, but this has yet to be confirmed. The lucky attendees of TGS also had the opportunity to play a preview of the game. Quoting Kotaku, "In my brief 15 minutes with Ace Attorney 5, the game felt like it was an improvement over past titles in every way while at the same time was remaining true to the spirit of the series as a whole. Simply put, from what I played, I have no objections when it comes to Ace Attorney 5."

[UPDATE- 06/09/12]:</strong> Gyakuten Saiban 5 has been announced for localization! Not on the same release date as the JP release, of course, but western fans now have a confirmation as to whether they'll be able to play this new edition!

:bulletred: Gyakuten Saiban 5 in Famitsu :bulletred:

Hey guys! Here's some updates about the upcoming Ace Attorney game! This information was sourced from a Court-Records article about a recent edition of Famitsu.

For those who have been anticipating Phoenix's return as a defense attorney, well, you don't have to hold your breaths any longer! He's back with a button on his lapel, sans the hoodie. A new sidekick clad in yellow seems to be coming along for the ride- but her identity will remain a mystery until further updates!

The initial game takes place a year after the AJ storyline, and is made for the 3DS. Though there were few screenshots in the Famitsu article, these screenshots hint at new modes of gameplay added on with the full 3D function!

Shu Takumi also seems to be less active on this project, as he is occupied with the other much- awaited game, Layton vs Ace Attorney.

Tokyo Game Show attendees also have the early chance to experience this new gameplay in Gyakuten Saiban 5.
