A new era begins in the Gyakuten Saibain series!
The fourth entry in the Ace Attorney series (most known for its original lawyer hero, Phoenix Wright), takes place seven years after the previous game (Trials and Tribulations) and introduces a new protagonist; Defense Attorney Apollo Justice! Here, players are put in the role of a fresh new ace attorney -- an attorney who has just passed the bar -- as he must gather evidence, interview witnesses, and survey crime scenes to prove himself. Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney utilizes the Touch Screen and other Nintendo DS features to enhance many of its entertaining puzzles and animations.
Apollo Justice is a defense attorney fresh out of law school ready to take on his first case under the guidance of his mentor and famous defense attorney Kristoph Gavin. Apollo is in for a huge surprise when he finds out his very first client is the one and only Phoenix Wright himself, whos been accused of killing a guy over a game of cards with a bottle of...grape juice?
Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney features 5 intense new cases with a whole new cast of friends and foes (and a few familar faces :) ). Replacing the "Pscyhe-Lock" system, we are introduced to the Minuku System (currently unnamed in the ENG version). The Minuku system's power comes from Apollo's bracelet and allows him to uncover the truth from lies. Aided by the mysterious young magician Trucy, Apollo is ready to take the legal world by storm and pave the way for the newest Ace Attorney legend!
