The Next Chapter of Legal Drama to Begin in North America this Fall

SAN MATEO, Calif - April 13, 2007 - Capcom®, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today announced Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trials and Tribulations for Nintendo DS. The third installment in the popular courtroom battle series from Japan features the completion of Phoenix Wright's story, as players explore both the past and present of the idiosyncratic lawyer. Capcom plans to release Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trials and Tribulations in North America in September 2007.

"Ace Attorney has developed an avid, devoted fan base in both Japan and North America," said Jack Symon, director, brand marketing, Capcom Entertainment. "Trials and Tribulations is being brought to North America due to the strong demand from fans for another epic courtroom battle."

In Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trials and Tribulations players star as a defense attorney, who must prove a seemingly guilty client's innocence no matter how dire the circumstances may seem. Phoenix will face the toughest prosecutor yet as the mysterious hard-boiled "Godot" will try to take him down at any cost. The complete story of Phoenix Wright comes together as truths are revealed in twisting storylines and intriguing gameplay. Players must collect evidence, survey crime scenes, weed through inconsistent testimonies, and overcome corrupt agendas to ensure that justice prevails. With the return of the popular "pysche-lock" interrogation tool from the previous title, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Justice for All, players will have to overcome even more intense courtroom standoffs in order to close the case.
