Capcom has released new Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney 6 information and screenshots introducing the game’s “3D Fingerprint Detection” system via forensic scientist Ema Skye.
Get the information below.
■ 3D Fingerprint Detection Part 1: Detection
There are several types of forensic sciences in Ace Attorney 6, which Ema Skye specializes in. This time, we’re looking at “3D Fingerprint Detection,” one of the several among them. This adds a new element to the “Fingerprint Detection” introduced in past entries.
Use powder to reveal fingerprints!
First off, in order to collect fingerprints, you’ll need to apply a special powder to the place where fingerprints might be located, and then blow it away for the fingerprints to appear. Repeat this several times to get a clear fingerprint.
[New] Rotate the box and thoroughly detect the fingerprint!
In Ace Attorney 6, it’s possible to rotate the evidence 360 degrees in every direction. You should focus and apply powder to the locations likely touched by the culprit’s hands.
■ 3D Fingerprint Detection Part 2: Comparison
Each person has a unique fingerprint. If you can find the same fingerprint as the one you identified from a list of characters, you can then identify its owner.
Once the fingerprint you applied powder to becomes clear, you’ll first choose the fingerprint to be compared, which will be displayed on the left side of the upper screen. Next, you’ll compare the detected fingerprint with similar fingerprints from a list of characters, which are displayed to the right of the detected fingerprint. If you can recognize the fingerprint, various new facts will come to light.
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney 6 is due out for 3DS in Japan on June 9. A western release is also planned, but has not been dated.
