Court is back in session! The intrepid digital attorney Phoenix Wright has returned to the side of lady justice in a new case to convict the culprit behind the destruction of the courthouse. The download-only release, available on eShop, picks up eight years after the previous Ace Attorney title, as Phoenix returns to form investigating crime scenes, examining evidence, cross examining witnesses, and now, with the help of newcomer Athena Cykes, psychoanalyzing witnesses.
It looks as if Aveline will have a busy new year. Ubisoft has announced that the console and PC version of Assassin’s Creed Liberation will be released on January 14 for PS3 and on January 15 for 360 and PC. The download-only release will feature assassin Aveline’s original adventure, set prior to the American Revolution, which found her using machetes, whips, and poison darts to take down her prey throughout New Orleans and even Mayan ruins. This new version will feature upgraded visuals—a comparison below shows a scene from it next to the same from the PS Vita original—and be released at $19.99. A discount of $5 was also announced for owners of Black Flag’s Season Pass.
