“Ace Attorney 5” Promo Video
Capcom began streaming the first promotional video for Ace Attorney 5 (Gyakuten Saiban 5) on the game’s official website—following the first day of the Tokyo Game Show. The title, which features the return of Phoenix Wright as the protagonist, will also contain a new gameplay element called Kokoro Scope (Feeling Scope). As the video will show, Kokoro Scope will allow players to discover the truth from changes in people’s emotions.
The cast and courtroom are all in 3D for this Nintendo 3DS game. Capcom will release the game in Japan and the States sometime next year.
Phoenix Wright Returns In “Ace Attorney 5”
Famtisu magazine confirmed that Phoenix Wright will return as the main character for Ace Attorney 5.
Being the first Nintendo 3DS game in the franchise, Wright and company will be in 3D along with the backdrops. For example, the player can freely change the camera angle to see the setting in 3D.
Story-wise, the game takes place a year after Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney (Gyakuten Saiban 4 ). Wright originally lost his law license eight years ago due to a conspiracy but is now back as a lawyer. There’s a mysterious girl in yellow who is accompanying him and Wright faces off against Fumitake Auchi, a veteran prosecutor and the younger brother of Takefumi Auchi (Winston Payne). Also, one of Wright’s clients is Shinobu Morisumi, a frail high school girl prone to spasm attacks.
There’s no release date yet, but Capcom will have a demo of the game the Tokyo Game Show, which starts September 20.

Capcom To Resurrect “Darkstalkers?”
During the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con, Capcom Producer Yoshinori Ono told fans that if they wanted to see more of Darkstalkers, then they would have to wave their cash in the air for Ono to take pictures and show Capcom.
It appears that fans can now put their money back in their wallets and purses. Ono said that there’s no need for them to wave their cash around at this year’s Comic-Con, making some wonder if that means Darkstalkers is rising again.
Capcom already filed to renew the Darkstalkers trademark in the European Union earlier this year. I wonder if this means a new game in the franchise, or another HD port like JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure? There were talks of Darkstalkers 3 hitting PSN earlier this year.

Nothing much is new but this trailer does show the Water-type gym leader, Shizui, leaping into battle with flair. Other than that, it just further shows that Eevee, Mareep and Riolu can be caught in the wild. And that a mechanic Tyranitar somehow ties into the gameplay.
