Ace Attorney 6: Spirit of Justice recently landed on the Nintendo 3DS last month. Capcom has decided to make its visual novel franchise a more prominent mobile presence with the upcoming winter release of the fourth game to the Ace Attorney series, Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney, similar to the treatment for the Phoenix Wright trilogy and Dual Destinies being released on the mobile platform.
The fourth title, which features new character Apollo Justice, focuses on the story behind the loss of previous protagonist Phoenix Wright’s attorney badge from a mistrial that took place seven years prior to Apollo’s story. It’s an unofficial start to Apollo Justice’s trilogy; Dual Destinies and Spirit of Justice are in a sense Justice’s coming of age as an attorney, with Phoenix Wright taking on the role of mentor. It’s no spin off like Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth, but it’s a strong addition to a great franchise.
Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney will release on Android and iOS this coming winter. Stay tuned!
