Capcom's anime-style legal series files a motion for continuance without Phoenix Wright in Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney. Apollo Justice is the new lawyer in town, picking up where Wright left off in a storyline taking place seven years after the events chronicled in 2007's Trials and Tribulations. While the three games in the Phoenix Wright series were originally designed for Game Boy Advance, Apollo Justice is the first title specifically developed for Nintendo DS.
Players will use the stylus to examine crime scenes, interview witnesses, and present evidence at trial. Microphone support is included for yelling such phrases as "objection" and "hold it." During an investigation, players will dust for fingerprints, create plaster molds, spray luminol to reveal hidden blood spatter, and more. In the courtroom, Justice can read non-verbal cues to determine if a witness is lying. A total of four cases are available to solve, each involving a mysterious murder. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
