Gyakuten Saiban 3 (Best Price!) will be released in Japan on August 23. The game will in addition to Japanese text, also have English text. So if you can’t wait for the US or European version, you can safely import it. Gamers in US doesn’t have to wait for more than a month after the Japanese release, since the game will come out in September, but under the Western name Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trials and Tribulations. There is no release date for Europe/Australia yet, so gamer who live there (like me), may consider an import.
The sequel to the criticly acclaimed Phoenix Wright: Justice for all. You can expect the same kind of gameplay. You have to search a crime scenes and use the evidence you’ve found in heated courtroom battles.
There is a lot of smart dialogue. Because of the great localisation you can expect jokes catered to the English speaking audience, as if the game was made in the USA. Well, it’s quite obvious that it is Japanese because of the stylish drawings that accompany’s the dialogue. This ‘manga’ art gives extra depth to the world.
In Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trials and Tribulations players star as a defense attorney, who must prove a seemingly guilty client’s innocence no matter how dire the circumstances may seem. Phoenix will face the toughest prosecutor yet as the mysterious hard-boiled Godot will try to take him down at any cost. The complete story of Phoenix Wright comes together as truths are revealed in twisting storylines and intriguing gameplay. Players must collect evidence, survey crime scenes, weed through inconsistent testimonies, and overcome corrupt agendas to ensure that justice prevails. With the return of the popular pysche-lock interrogation tool from the previous title, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Justice for All, players will have to overcome even more intense courtroom standoffs in order to close the case.
