Characters, parts, and the Kokoro Scope.

Capcom has released a new ‘guidebook’ video for Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney 5, its upcoming 3DS sequel in the courtroom adventure game series.

The video explores the game’s characters, detective parts, courtroom parts, and ‘Kokoro Scope’ feature, a new system where newcomer Kizuki Kokone can examine the emotions of a witness to draw out what’s true and what’s not.

Watch the video below.

    Off topic but I seriously wish that the Ace Attorney Trilogy HD would’ve been available on the Vita instead of iOS… Similarly, an enhanced version of the original trilogy should also be made available for the 3DS.

      Preaching to the choir…though I wouldn’t say only Vita, just spread it across all platforms, seems like easy money. Money to be made on iOS, money on Android, money on Vita/PS3 or Vita/PS4. I just don’t understand Japanese developers/publishers. They want to think more western but when it’s actually a good idea to copy them, they won’t copy the good idea, just the bad ones, ugh ~_~

      You know with only 3 comments on this article I though to myself “No way someone mentioned the Vita already.” but I guess I shouldn’t be surprised at this point anymore. After all what better place to talk about the Vita then on 3ds articles….

      Yeah, but sadly Capcom seems to be avoiding the Vita for some reason (only a couple fighting game ports; look at RE: Revelations and no Monster Hunter). But I imagine that being mostly 2D games, it would be easy, especially since the Vita’s resolution is slightly lower than modern smartphones.

      I would definitely get it if it had the same price as the smartphone versions and not marked up to $40 just because it’s a Vita game.

    Holy shi-APOLLO?! Dude took a level in BADASS!

    someone uploaded a subbed version!

    and yes, would love a Ace Attorney HD collection on BOTH Vita and 3DS!!!

    Looking good. The graphics are super smooth in the video, and it does seem they’re trying to do new stuff with game play ^^

    Seeing Apollo’s different appearances makes me think alternating timeline in the game like Trials and Tribulations, especially since we can see him do some defense work. Probably turned bancho in that explosion, and that’s why Phoenix returns?

    (That reminds me, will Apollo still be able to use his perceive ability? Heck, will even the Magatama make a comeback?)
