Last week, the iOS edition of the fifth installment in Capcom’s popular Ace Attorney series of legal adventure games was soft-launched on the App Store in Japan. Capcom then announced that it would be releasing the game’s English version “very soon.”
Well, as it turns out, Capcom actually meant “very soon,” since Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Dual Destinies, aka Ace Attorney 5, is now officially out on the App Store.
Like the previous games in the series, Ace Attorney 5 challenges you to examine pieces of evidence and spot contradictions in witness statements.
Ace Attorney 5, of course, features the eponymous Phoenix Wright. But this time, he’s joined by Apollo Justice and Athena Cykes in uncovering the truth behind each of the cases. The game also boasts high-definition graphics and new interactive ways to investigate crime scenes.
Check out the trailer below for the game’s original Nintendo 3DS edition to get an idea as to what you can expect from Ace Attorney 5 for iOS:
