Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice, free costume pack out on eShop

Phoenix Wright and Apollo Justice are back on the case(s) with the release of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice. Justice takes charge of the cases at home, while Wright attends to a case in Khura’in. A self-styled tour guide, Ahlbi Ur’gaid, has been accused of theft, and Wright’s determined to defend him. This new location is different from those in previous games, as the kingdom’s legal system uses séances instead of lawyers. In addition to investigating witnesses and looking for evidence, Wright will have to take part in Divination Séances to witness the last moments of a crime. As a bonus, everyone who buys the game during its first week of release will receive a $0.99 costume pack for free. New for-pay DLC is also scheduled to be released every Thursday through the end of the month, including two short stories and one full episode.
