Gyakuten Saiban 4 [Limited Edition]

Gyakuten Saiban 4 will be released in Japan Arpil 12. We in the West know this game as Phoenix Wright and this games have been sold like hot cakes. Gyakuten Saiban 4 is the first game to be developed for the Nintendo DS and is not a GBA remake like Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Justice for All. Gyakuten Saiban 3 have only been released on GBA in Japan.

Here’s a quote from
The game takes place seven years after Gyakuten Saiban 3 (so far only released on GBA™ in Japan) and is the first game in the series that no longer features Phoenix Wright (Ryuuichi Naruhodoh in Japanese) as the main character. This time, you take the role as Housuke Odoroki, a 22-year-old lawyer fresh out of school. His legal partner is a magician named Minuki, his mentor is named Garyu Kirihito, and his prosecuting rival is Kirihito’s younger brother and famous rock star, Garyu Kyoya.

Once again, your task in this game is to gather evidence, interview witnesses, and survey crime scenes to prove yourself. A new feature is the Minuku System. The bracelet on Odoroki’s left arm can be used to zoom in on witnesses to gather information about them. It is used primarily in court to look for motions or actions made by witnesses that show nervousness, like playing with one’s fingers. The move even comes with a new phrase, “SOKO DA!” which in English means “right there!”

It’s too bad that Gyakuten Saiban 4 is Japanese only and does not have an English translation. I would realy liked that. The game comes in two versions, one standard version (game only) and one Limited Edition.
