Capcom San Diego Comic-Con 2013 Schedule and New Ace Attorney 3D Gameplay Videos
OK, before we get to Capcom‘s Comic-Con schedule, lets touch on updates for Phoenix Wright! Capcom has released a whole bunch of media (screenshots and videos) of the upcoming 3DS title, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies which arrives this fall. The videos are the more interesting part of the bunch, as they showcase how 3D will allow players to fully investigate crime scenes and the series’ new mysterious prosecutor, Simon Blackquill.
The background of the game is as follows: An incident at the Themis Legal Academy sees the young law student and friend of Athena Sykes, Juniper Woods, arrested for the murder of Constance Courte. It is down to Apollo Justice and his team to defend the accused against returning German prosecutor and guitar playing Klavier Gavin.
