Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Spirit of Justice Trailer
While the characters are nostalgic, the story itself is a bit different from the other ones. First off, Phoenix is visiting Khura’in to see Maya, but Khura’in is a country where religion is the ultimate power and lawyers are viewed as despicable. When a crime is committed, things are not handled in a way familiar to Phoenix. No, judgement is passed based on the Divination Seance, which the royal priestess performs bringing to light the last moments of the victim prior to his or her death. However, Phoenix keeps finding himself in court to defend his friends and fight a system that ultimately just hates him.
Unfortunately, it will not be an easy time because it seems there is treachery afoot. There seems to be something funny going on in the government of Khura’in which has caused quite a bit of trouble for the law. Rebels are attacking Khura’in and causing trouble for the country, but who is really at fault here? Well, it all depends on whose side you are on, but as Phoenix Wright, you have a lot to uncover before things can be righted again!
One other thing to note is the use of several main characters. In fact, you will play as Phoenix in some parts of the game and as Apollo in the others. Both of these characters must fight to figure out the truth and battle against all the forces that really seem out to get them. As you continue on, you may discover that both what Phoenix is going through and Apollo’s past come into play. There is so much more to the story than meets the eye. However, I would rather not spoil the mystery for you. You just will have to play and find out more.
In fact, you get to take a look into the pasts and cultures of multiple characters. Spirit of Justice has managed to add more depth to our favorite characters!
