Sprite Cup 2013 Winners!
There were a few bumps along the way, but we're pleased to announce the winners of the 2013 (2014?) Court-Records Sprite Cup!
First place: space coyote's Inspector Cabanela!
sc takes her second Sprite Cup, and with it wins the GS5 Phoenix statue! Congratulations!
Second place: mercurialSK's Prosecutor Justice!
mercurialSK's bad-end-Apollo wins the silver and the GS5 3DS carrying case! Nice one!
Third place: Athena Cykes' Trucy Gramarye!
While we're guessing Athena Cykes is a pseudonym and the lines between Ace Attorney and reality haven't blurred that much yet, Athena's take on Trucy pulled bronze and the GS5 sticker set out of a hat!
Fourth place: Barbz's Mona Arch!
Barbz's Shakesperian butterfly thespian is the only totally original character to make the top five!
Fifth place: Lil's Hipster Klavier!
Klavier may have fallen on hard times with this entry, but he's still glimmerous enough to round out our finalists!
And thanks to a generous staffie at Capcom-Unity, all five finalists will receive one of these foam Phoenix fingers! We'll be reaching out to you via the e-mail you submitted with to collect shipping info.
And to everyone who participated, be that by submitting or voting: thank you very, very much! We had a great turnout this year with some really stellar entries, and we'll be making all entries, including non-finalists, available for viewing on C-R in the near future. On a personal note, it was my first time managing a contest for C-R, and I'm hoping to apply the lessons learned in the process to help our upcoming OC Contest run a little smoother. (Oh yes, that's still on its way!)
Congratulations once more to our winners! Reply || Read Comments By Bolt Storm

Gyakuten Saiban Piano Arrange
Through our friends at Video Game Music Database and Amazon (thanks to JapaneseGIRL for providing the link to the latter), we now have confirmation that there is a new Ace Attorney album by the name of 'Gyakuten Saiban Piano Arrange' coming out on April 23. So far, all we have to go on is the release date, but looking at past releases it's probably safe to assume that this will be another arrange by Noriyuki Iwadare; composer for Trials and Tribulations, both Investigations games, Dual Destines and the previous orchestrated and jazz albums. Considering these were all spectacularly composed albums, this is definitely a must-listen for anyone needing a new Ace Attorney musical fix in the coming months.

Shu Takumi working on new, "completely different" AA game
Ace Attorney: A New Project Begins
I didn't see this on the Nintendo Direct myself, but I'm trusting Siliconera on this one. Allegedly it's "completely different from past Ace Attorney games." Whatever that means, as long as Takumi's singular gift for storytelling remains intact I'm okay with whatever.

Join two quintessential gentlemen in action on 28th March for an epic adventure - from London to the mysterious city of LabyrinthiaReply || Read Comments By irishmarcoos
5th February 2014 - Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, the world of a legendary academic and puzzle sleuth is set to collide with that of a hot-shot, justice loving attorney from 28th March when Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney launches exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. Whether in the heat of a court case, or out on the streets of London or the mystical medieval city of Labyrinthia, prepare to witness two great minds come face to face with magic, witchcraft, and all manner of contradictions to get to the bottom of!
If you are new to either the Professor Layton or Ace Attorney series, this first crossover adventure for the pair combines the investigative and puzzle-solving game elements of Layton with the intense courtroom-based action of a Phoenix Wright title. Both characters are famed for their quick wits and powers of unearthing the truth, and in this joint outing will need to work together to leave no puzzle or court trial unsolved.
The scene is set in Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney when through independent circumstances both Professor Layton and Phoenix Wright - with their respective partners Luke Triton and Maya Fey in tow - cross paths in London with a mysterious woman, Espella Cantabella and subsequently find themselves spirited away to Labyrinthia, a world overseen by the shadowy figure of the Storyteller. This literary master of Labyrinthia has a gift for foreseeing the future, and with every prophecy penned is a tale destined to become reality. Aside from dispelling the people of Labyrinthia's suspicions of foreign visitors, once Layton and Wright get acquainted and both remember their calling they must begin unravelling the unusual events of the city and save Espella from being condemned as a witch.
With the two quintessential gentlemen working in tandem, during court trials Phoenix Wright is able to use Hint Coins - a staple of the Professor Layton series - in order to narrow down options when presenting evidence, or provide helpful hints when cross-examining witnesses. After all, in the Witch Trials of Labyrinthia multiple witnesses to a crime can take to the stand, meaning Wright will need to be on guard to press any witness who is looking suspicious when another testimony is being given. Don't be surprised in addition to see Layton stepping up to raise an objection, both on the side of the defence and the prosecution...
For those who finish the main story, Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney will offer Bonuses including exclusive artwork and music from the game. Make sure that throughout the course of your adventure in London and Labyrinthia you collect as many Picarats as possible - the higher the Picarat score you have at the end of the game, the more content will be unlocked. Once more for fans who complete the main story, free extra content can also be unlocked* gradually, with treats for fans such as twelve short new episodes for the game, and galleries featuring over sixty illustrations with comments from the development team on how they brought the two legendary gentlemen together for this unique adventure.
Two titans of law and order unite on 28th March when Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney launches in six different languages** across Europe for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. Get your thinking cap on when facing all-new puzzles from the perspectives of both Professor Layton and Phoenix Wright, and witness the law-enforcing pair battle side by side in the courtroom to secure justice and unravel the enigma that is the mysterious medieval city of Labyrinthia.
To catch a glimpse of what lies in store in Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, a new teaser trailer can be viewed here.
Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney will be available to purchase via the Nintendo UK store. Prices will vary between retailers.
* Internet connection required for downloadable content.
** The game will feature voiceover and text in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish and Dutch.
