While previous entries in the main series were set in Japan, Ace Attorney 6 is set in a mysterious foreign country, where religious temples for those who place their faith in the souls of the dead are erect in the center of town.

Ace Attorney 6 uses a new “Water Mirror” system. The Water Mirror show clues related to the case, bringing to the surface an image and text. Further details are still unknown.

The magazine introduces a new character named Bokuto Tsuani, a young boy and apprentice priest who works as a tour guide. He loves his country and tends to not be able to stop talking about it once he starts.

The following is an excerpt from an interview in Famitsu:

What’s the theme and concept of Ace Attorney 6?

Takeshi Yamazaki, director: “Throughout the series, Phoenix Wright is in a place that lacks enemies. Because of that, we’re paying more attention to the world this time.”

Eshiro Motohide, producer: “It’s tough to develop within the Japanese courtroom, since an exhilarating part of the game is how situations can change from from desperate to complete turnabouts. The theme is ‘courtroom revolution.’ Phoenix Wright changing the system of the court is a major theme.”

Will the beginner system from Ace Attorney 5 return?

Motohide: “The backlog, amount of save data, and such are things with good reputation, so they’ll return. As for the hint system, I want players to be able to turn it off at any time.”

Development on Ace Attorney 6 is 30 percent complete. A release date is not announced, but the game is confirmed for both Japanese and western territories.
