I remembered that old promotional video for the release of Gyakuten Saiban Yomigaeru Gyakuten (the remake of Gyakuten Saiban 1 for the DS in Japan, and the first Phoenix Wright game released for English-speaking audiences). The FUNNIEST thing ever. What people liked about that promo was its witty (almost parody-like to the franchise) script – making it a very good promo for a video game. But what made it unique to PW fans – something that’s absent from the actual game (besides the non-murder case) – was really the voice acting.
When I first saw this promo, the chemistry of the voice cast was really superb… and then I began thinking: “What if there was an anime adaption of Phoenix Wright?”
Played this game through a trial version, so I didn’t get the full experience. However, I have to say that the visual novel’s story captured my interest and made me want to keep playing through the day. However, when all these random, out-of-place scenes started to appear, I knew it was the end of my adventure.
According to a screen of GameCrazy’s computer systems posted by one of their employees on Court-Records, a new Phoenix Wright game is set to be released on 9/25/2007, presumably a DS port of Gyakuten Saiban 3.
“I work at a GameCrazy store and periodically, our computers will be updated with information before publishers release it (for example, we have “Riddick” for the PS3 and XB360 in our systems, but no announcement has been made). Anyway, I was checking trade-in values this morning for Phoenix Wright, and I noticed six entries instead of the usual four (each game has an entry for a used copy and a new copy.. so four entries = 2 games, 8 entries = 4 games, etc).
Anyway, I went back and looked, and I noticed that they have put in a new Phoenix Wright game, slated for this fall, and the tagline cut off, but it said “Phoenix Wright – Trials Tribu”. I’m guessing it could be “Trials and Tribulations”, but I don’t know. It had a release date of 9/25/07.
I know what you’re saying. “Oh, he’s a new guy. It’s his first post. He’s making this stuff up.”
(“Gameboy DS”… GameStop’s unfixed computer errors makes me LOL in my pants…)
All I have to say is…
(kthx to Court-Records for the smilie. 😛)
