HOLD IT! Live orchestra to play Phoenix Wright tunes

Man, if you're a person living in Japan and reading DS Fanboy right now, do we have a piece of awesome news for you. Not only are you confined to listening to the wonderful music from the Ace Attorney line through your iTunes or by actually playing the games, you can enjoy a live performance of tracks from the series of games. Chalk this up as another reason why we wish we lived in Japan.

We do have time to move over there before this goes down. The event takes place on April 20th at the Shinjuku Culture Center, where the Tokyo Philharmonic will be behind select musical tracks from the games. Hey, if there's going to be any reason why we move there, it'd be this.

Be the belle of the hobo ball with this stylish cap

For how much we talk about Phoenix Wright and the Ace Attorney lineup of games here at DS Fanboy, you should already know this next tidbit of info involving upcoming game Apollo Justice. In case you don't, however, then here's your warning: spoiler alert!

In the newest game, Phoenix has given up on life and resorted to being a hobo. His cap, which is pictured above, is available as a pre-order bonus for those in Japan. Definitely beats that crummy Phoenix plush we got for pre-ordering Trials and Trbulations here. Hopefully, Capcom will treat Japanese gamers a bit better than they treated us.

GameStop lists Apollo Justice for a February release

A listing for Ace Attorney: Apollo Justice has surfaced at GameStop's online site, claiming the game would grace retail shelves on the 19th of February. Although the listing is hardly confirmed, we're crossing our fingers that this is the true release date.

We might have initially thought the game was coming too soon following Trials & Tribulations, but that isn't the case any longer. We want this game. And we want it now. Also, we wonder about possible pre-order gifts, although we won't be pre-ordering through Capcom directly, we assure you.

Friday Video: Conclusive evidence

The best thing in this video isn't hearing Apollo Justice's "Objection" for the first time, nor is it seeing the way he interacts with his mentor, Kristoph Gavin. It's not even the sight of a familiar friend. Oh, which reminds us-- this video contains people talking and things happening in Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney, so if you're absolutely dead set against hearing even the most cursory information about the plot, don't watch the video.

The best thing about this video is that it's more proof that an English version of the game is really, really on the way, and soon.

TGS07: Apollo Justice trailer

Imported direct from the Tokyo Game Show, this new trailer for Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney depicts a man on a mission. He's a rookie attorney with only one weapon: a passionate heart burning red. Oh, and his many years attending law school. Also, his mysterious magician sidekick.

OK, so he has a few different weapons.

German Apollo Justice screenshots are a good sign

Siliconera's Spencer Yip came across some screenshots of the German localization of Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney and rejoiced. Not because German is awesome (although we suppose it is a pretty neat language) but because evidence of any work being done on a version in any European language portends that the English version is even farther along. In fact, if Capcom is even thinking about a European release, we estimate that the US version must have been out for about two years already.

More information about the European version can be found at Nintendo's European site, which lists some very Teutonic-sounding names for the twin lawyers known as Garyuu Kirihito and Garyuu Kyouya in Japan: Klavier and Kristoph Gavin. In addition, Apollo's assistant, called Minuki in Japanese, is called Trucy in the European release. Could these be the American character names as well?

Ace Attorney: J-Rock for All

The song is all in Japanese and the lyrics go by way to quickly for us to translate, but we've decided to feature this fan-created Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney (Gyakuten Saiban 4) because
  1. We haven't had any Ace Attorney stuff in a while, and we were getting antsy, and
  2. We are super impressed with the work put into making the animations match the song ("Makka na Chikai," the opening theme of the Buso Renkin anime.)
We're a little surprised-- we didn't realize we enjoyed fan-created Ace Attorney videos this much. But we were totally into watching new prosecuter Kyouya Garyuu lip-sync and air-guitar along to the theme song of some anime we never watched.

DS Daily: Changing of the guard

Fans of the Ace Attorney series have probably figured out that the newest game features a new attorney, for reasons we're not gonna get into here. The point is, our beloved Phoenix Wright is out as the star, and the new kid, Apollo Justice is in. It's not the first time this has happened in a franchise, either. We're not just talking about spin-offs, like Tingle's Rosy Yet Crazy Land of Rupee Insanity, but an honest-to-goodness changing of the guard. Sometimes it doesn't last, as in Metal Gear Solid 2, and sometimes, the change is hardly noticeable, as with the parade of green-clad heroes who are forever saving princesses in the land of Hyrule. But with the Ace Attorney series and other instances, what do you think about it? Does it bother you to lose a cherished hero in favor of some johnny-come-lately?

Duh: Apollo Justice is the new attorney

When it was revealed that Capcom had another trademark under its belt, we all knew it was the name of Gyakuten Saiban 4's new lawyer. Now, we actually have confirmation of such. Machine translation isn't the best, so it's kind of hard to extract any more information from the piece.

Of course, look for more on the game from this week's E3.

Capcom registers "Apollo Justice" trademark

Don't object to our speculation, but Capcom has registered a trademark that sounds like it may have relevance in our daily lives. "Apollo Justice" ... hmm. The first name is taken from a mythological figure, one associated with law and truth, and the last name is also legal-themed. Oh, we got it-- this is the name of the next Resident Evil game.

Oh, or Ace Attorney. "Apollo Justice" would be a pretty good name for Odoroki Housuke, the protagonist of Gyakuten Saiban 4. And if that's what the trademark is for, then it's a good sign for those of us hoping for a localized version.
