Gyakuten Kenji devs vaguely discuss their game


Court Records forum user 'Tuesday' has generously translated a recent Famitsu interview with a trio of senior figures from the Gyakuten Kenji team, including Director Tsuyoshi Yamazaki, Character Designer Tatsurou Iwamoto, and Producer Motohide Eshiro.

Because Capcom seems to be hellbent on keeping much of Gyakuten Kenji shrouded in mystery for as long as possible, there's a fair few "we can't comment on that"-style remarks in the piece. That said, we do learn more about the timeline -- Eshiro reckons that the game is set "around Gyakuten Saiban 3 [Trials and Tribulations], I suppose," while Yamazaki observes that Edgeworth is "no longer the jerk in Gyakuten Saiban 1, but the one whose mind is changing, thanks to his battles with Wright." Elsewhere, there's a confirmation that "some popular characters" from the Gyakuten Saiban universe will have parts to play (but guess what: they can't say who).

Oh, and a surprisingly large portion of the article is dedicated to discussion about Edgeworth's running. In what is a first for the series, Gyakuten Kenji will have players directly controlling Edgeworth as he moves around various crime scenes, and it sounds as though the team really agonized over getting this new Edgeworth to look right. This even extends to the lawyer's running animations, which Eshiro describes as "graceful, while exerting effort." We're not sure Iwamoto is totally convinced yet, however, as he thinks Edgeworth looks like he's "walking really fast accidentally." Actually, that sums up our comical running styles pretty well.

Gyakuten Kenji's mysterious girl revealed (sort of)

"Ohhhhhh-a-ohh-a-ohh, mysterious girl, I wanna get close to you."

We don't usually kick off the week with a spot of Peter Andre, but the Australian warbler's hit seemed mildly appropriate today, seeing as Ace Attorney spin-off Gyakuten Kenji (Turnabout Prosecutor) has a mysterious girl of its own. The shadowy figure to the right appeared on the most recent cover of Nintendo Dream alongside Miles Edgeworth and Detective Gumshoe, and has immediately set tongues wagging in the Ace Attorney fan community.

Cruelly, the magazine remains tight-lipped about who or what she is, revealing only her age (seventeen), and that she is a "major character." Could she be an assistant to Edgeworth, as Maya was to Phoenix? That seems most likely to us. We'll tell you who we most of us would like her to be, however: Edgeworth's love interest. The collective howl from the lawyer's legion of female admirers would be deafening (yet amusing).

Turnabout past the break for some snippets of scans.

Ace Attorney orchestra awesomeness meets Gyakuten Kenji trailer


The Ace Attorney series is dear to our hearts, so when any information crosses the intertubes regarding Capcom's lawyering games, we foam at the mouth like rabid raccoons. Today's tidings regard both the Gyakuten Meets Orchestra concert, which took place in Tokyo, and the upcoming spin-off title starring Miles Edgeworth.

As much as we love Gyakuten Saiban and its music, we obviously weren't able to able to drag ourselves to Japan for what we're sure was an awesome concert. From what we understand, though, the CDs that you see so deliciously stacked in the video above will be made available for purchase on July 16th. Do want.

Also in the video (around the 4:00 minute mark) is a trailer for Edgeworth's game, called Gyakuten Kenji in case you haven't been keeping up (for shame!). The trailer is mostly just moving versions of screens we've already seen, but it also features a new character that will be showing up

Check after the break to see some promotional photos for Gyakuten Kenji, some artwork from the event (want!), and some Gyakuten Saiban swag, including an orchestra-themed tumbler (want want!) and even Snackoos (want want want!).

Gyakuten Kenji is now easier on the eyes

Is squinting at tiny pictures in scans just not your thing? In case you want to save your eyesight for purposes that don't involve looking at Miles Edgeworth, we've posted some nicely-sized game screens here that you can peruse at your leisure. We've also collected some Gyakuten Kenji game art, since we're just that awesome -- although, you might recognize the illustrations if you've already visited the game's official website.

The art can be seen in the gallery below, but make sure to click past the break if you want to see the rest of the Famitsu screens.

Turnabout website

Capcom just launched the official website for Gyakuten not Saiban (officially called Gyakuten Kenji, or Turnabout Prosecutor), which is one of our most anticipated spin-off games ever. So far, there are no goodies available at the site, but you can still check it out if you want to see Edgeworth's giant face and a minuscule amount of game art.

Aside from the magenta-coated prosecutor and everyone's favorite bumbling detective (Gumshoe), who will both be featured in the game, what characters do you hope to see make an appearance?

DS Daily: Taking the lead

News that Prosecutor Miles Edgeworth is to get his very own Gyakuten Saiban game was greeted by much hollering in the DS Fanboy dungeons. A number of our staff have genuine fixations about the brooding, dandified lawyer, and they're not alone.

But now Edgey has his own game, which other secondary characters do you reckon deserve the same treatment? We'd rather you didn't say Luigi, as that's a bit obvious, and anyone calling for Luke of Professor Layton fame plainly deserves an electrified cattle prod to the face. Those two aside, choose away.

Gyakuten Kenji: new Phoenix Wright prequel starring Edgeworth


How about a morning MEGATON? The latest issue of Famitsu contains an announcement of a new Ace Attorney game: a spinoff called Gyakuten Kenji (Turnabout Prosecutor). Like the previous AA games, Kenji will focus on crime scene investigation (but not courtroom theatrics). This time the action follows Prosecutor Miles Edgeworth and Detective Dick Gumshoe. Using new gameplay systems, you'll check out crime scenes for unseen evidence, and argue cases in court. Unlike Saiban, Edgeworth will actually be visible on screen, making this more of a point-and-click adventure, versus a graphical text adventure.

It seems pretty likely that this is the big announcement Capcom was planning to make about the series, unless they've got something even bigger on the way. This is quite enough, however -- we're roughly 1% as excited as the Edgeworth fanfic community will be, which is to say outrageously excited.
