Phoenix Wright’s “daughter” Trucy and childhood friend/rival Miles Edgeworth are coming back for Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies, the fifth mainline entry in the series.
Both characters’ were revealed, along with their new looks, in the latest issue of Famitsu. Trucy doesn’t appear to have changed much since her appearance in Ace Attorney 4. Edgeworth, on the other hand, shows his age by sporting a new, longer coat and a pair of glasses.
Capcom also put out a new trailer for the game, but it focuses more on Phoenix and the new prosecutor Jin Yūgami.No comments
Shin Megami Tensei IV artist Masayuki Doi and Dragon’s Crown artist George Kamitani will both be at E3 to sign prints for attendees and Atlus wants you to choose which ones they should make.
The poll is open to everyone subscribed to the company’s “Atlus Faithful” newsletter, but you can also click on the posted links to vote for your favorite print. However, not being on Atlus’ mailing list eliminates you from winning one of the twelve signed prints they plan to give away in the future.
Come on, grab your friends. We’ll go to very distant lands. Again!
D3Publisher and Cartoon Network Enterprises have announced Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON’T KNOW! for the Wii U, 3DS, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
Once again, WayForward will be handling the game’s development and series creator Pendleton Ward will be on board to supervise and provide input.
The story this time revolves around Finn and Jake exploring a mysterious dungeon under the land of Ooo. Why? Well, as the title says, I don’t know.
What is known, is that unlike the first game, Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why’d You Steal Our Garbage?, there will be four-player co-op and you’ll be able to play as Marceline (the Vampire Queen), Cinnamon Bun and more.
Expect to hear more details as the game gets closer to its fall release.

What kind of Resident Evil game would Revelations be if it didn’t have some irrelevant bonus costumes?
New to the HD remake are a ninja getup for Keith, a pirate outfit for Jill and a sassy sailor suit for Chris. Just look at how sassy that looks. You can tell that sailor’s looking for a good time.
Capcom’s Brett Elston doesn’t want to spoil how to go about unlocking these new costumes, but he did say that they involve playing through the campaign and Raid mode.
Resident Evil Revelations comes out for the Wii U, PC, 360 and PS3 on May 21 across North America.

According to a reply on Twitter from Ubisoft Montpellier creative director Jean-Philippe Caro, the developer is hard at work on a prototype for a sequel to ZombiU.
It’s been confirmed that certain features, most notably campaign co-op, were dropped in order to make the Wii U’s launch. With a potential sequel, it’s possible the team could reconsider some of them.No comments
@josemedina910 Right now a Wii-U release isn’t looking likely. If sales pick up and they establish a digital presence it’s possible, though.

Don’t hold your breath for a Wii U version of Skullgirls. According to the game’s official Twitter account, the system’s low install base and lack of “digital presence” make the chances of the busty 2D fighter coming to the eShop pretty slim.
Nintendo seems to be doing quite a bit to curry the favor of indie developers like Skullgirls’ Lab Zero. At the Full Indie Summit last month, Nintendo announced major changes to their requirements for releasing titles in the eShop.No comments
A new patch for Tomodachi Collection is removing a bug that allowed two male characters to date, marry and even have children with each other, or as it’s referred to in the patch notes, “Human relations that become strange.”
Among the other changes coming in the patch are:
- Fixing the inability to boot up the game
- Error messages
- Fixing inability to save
Even though Capcom’s Christian Svensson had to promise high sales to ensure that Ace Attorney 5 would be come to the West, the senior vice-president announced that the game, now titled Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies, won’t be able to get a physical release when it comes stateside this fall.
From the Capcom-Unity forums:
“Sorry guys, but a physical release is not in the cards.
Historically it’s been tough to attract long term retail support for Ace Attorney titles. With the release of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies we wanted as many people as possible to be able to enjoy the game for as long as possible. With that in mind we have opted for a digital only release via the Nintendo 3DS eShop.
I understand that this decision may upset fans who wanted to have a physical version of the title to add to their collection but we believe this direction is the best to take.
We will be confirming details on the price point in the not-so-distant future which I hope will also shed more light on the strategy at play here.”
