It's a testament to just how good
the Ace Attorney
series is when we're considering playing something that looks -- well, meh
, to put it bluntly -- in the hopes that we'll be able to experience something even somewhat similar. Yet, without the charm of characters like Phoenix Wright, not to mention a much cheesier-looking objection screen, is there really a point?
In case you're wondering what we're rambling on about, Portuguese developer GAMEINVEST is releasing an attorney adventure game this summer titled Defenders of Law, Inc: Crime in Willburg
. Like the Ace Attorney
games, you'll be finding clues and gathering evidence to help you solve a murder mystery, just to prove your client innocent.
What intrigues us is that there will be 25 different scenarios, and you can choose from five different attorneys to play as, too. If this game does
turn out to be good, at least it will be a lot
of good. On the other hand, if it turns out to be bad ... well, we're sure you get the gist.
