    Hold it! I’m trying to hold my excitement, but it’s not working!!! I’m also wondering when we are getting Layton x Ace Attorney.

  • whiteferrero

    YES! Edgeworth and Trucy are there!

  • asch999

    Pearl is back, now where is Maya

  • dez-e-ray112

    Wow, it looks pretty good so far.

  • new_tradition

    All those animated scenes… *_*

    I see psyche-locks are still going to be available, yay!

    That new prosecutor looks really fun and interesting. Gotta give kudos to a guy who can still being smirking and arrogant even in chains xD

    Interesting to see there might be some tension after all between Phoenix and Apollo. Once again, I’m super happy Apollo didn’t get shafted for this game. IMO, he didn’t get enough time to shine in his own game due to everything revolving around Phoenix anyways, so I hope we get some more insight on him ^^

    Oh yes, obligatory squee for Miles at the end <3

      Omg, I totally missed Pearl and Klavier when I first saw the trailer! So many main characters getting packed into this game, I’m so excited ^^

      The running theory about Maya appears to be that she’s running Kurain Village and she can’t just up and leave.

      Since the Magatama and Pearl are in the game, I’ll be surprised if Maya doesn’t at least get a mention.

      Heck, I would’ve been fine with Klavier just getting some vague mention, but if he’s getting some kind of cameo, Maya appearing just seems expected xD

      • Kobracon

        It would be a great little reward to see Maya if we get all the post case “Take That”s right (assuming they will still have those in this game) Much like when you do it in PW2 and you get to see Franny cry (which was well worth it IMO)

  • KnifeAndFork

    It’s good cel shading but not as good as Guilty Gear Xrd

  • Kurisu Makise

    Production value really stepped up for the series with this move to 3D. Yet, the celshading could be better. I’m really happy that Trucy and Edgeworth were shown but I feel so conflicted by Dual Destinies. It’s like…Apollo only got the one game and he was side-showed by Phoenix. Now he’s…I dunno still in Phoenix’s shadow except this time it’s prominently shown that he’s the partner? I guess I’m kind of doubting that Eshiro’s crew can handling the pacing after Takumi-sensei kinda screwed up Apollo’s debut as it is. Also Phoenix’s character seems to have reverted big time. Hobo-sensei Phoenix was really mature and awe-inspiring. Yet now that he’s got his badge back, he’s back to taking hits from the competition? I dunno…I see the problems and it’s not even out yet.

  • Derry Santoso

    Where is maya??!!!

  • PrinceHeir

    while it stings me it’s still digital only.

    better than nothing i guess :P

    i wonder if the voice will be english or japanese though?

    can’t wait either way!!!!!!

  • superlocke

    in case anyone missed it, Pearl flashes on screen for a split second.

    Here she is!
