Capcom’s long-running Ace Attorney series has already seen a transition from the original Phoenix Wright trilogy to the Apollo Justice follw-ups.
Now the franchise branches off once again in the form of Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth.
As the title suggests, the game drops the previous spiky-haired goody-goody protagonists in favour of fan favourite Miles Edgeworth, who served as the player’s main rival in earlier titles.
Rather than putting player through the usual lengthy courtroom dramas, Investigations instead turns its focus to the crime scene. Players are sent to the various murder scenes to search for evidence and contradictions that will prove to be essential to solving each of the game’s mysteries.
The process of investigation is no longer as inactive as it once was, with players actively moving the main character around each environment with the stylus, instead of simply tapping on a static background.
There are also new game mechanics that will make the action more engaging, such as Logic mode.
Once players have acquired enough evidence, they must use this to identify the connections between everything they have found and the testimony of key witnesses.
