Phoenix Wright figma announced, other collaborationsAnd some AA6 news that's less directly related to the game...
First off, an official Wright figma model will be produced!
Price and release date are TBD, but AA model or action figure fans will want to pick this up.
Saddened by the lack of a Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney 2? Well, it's not quite the same, but you can get your fix of AA-puzzle crossover with an upcoming promo in Puzzle and Dragons:
From 6/6 to 6/12, an AA6-themed Ranking Dungeon will be available in the Japanese app, featuring Phoenix and other (TBA) characters.
In Japan and looking for something a little more hands-on? Why not try the AA6 mystery rally? Capcom is teaming up with the railway companies of Kanto, Toukai, and Kansai to bring AA6-inspired events to stations in those cities. If you're like most of our readership and live hundreds to thousands of miles away from those cities, just enjoy the art of Phoenix, Maya, and Apollo.
All of the above comes from 4gamer and Capcom PR. Reply || Read Comments By Bolt Storm

Spirit of Justice DLC announced: Turnabout Across TimeAs leaked from the demo, Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice will indeed feature a DLC episode... and it features a familiar face or two to boot!
Set after the end of Spirit of Justice, the episode sees Phoenix and Maya facing off against Edgeworth in court, with Larry appearing as well. The episode will be free to download from June 30th to July 20th, and will be a paid download afterwards.
Details will be discussed on tonight's livestream, though Famitsu's preview of the court skit they'll be using suggests "a wedding ceremony" and "time travel" will be the theme of the case. Reply || Read Comments By Bolt Storm

Reminder: AA6 livestream Tues. morning (US time)Just a reminder that tomorrow, May 17th, there will be a special AA6 livestream celebrating the game's completion:
A special live broadcast for the Japanese release of AA6 is scheduled to air on Tuesday May 17th, starting at 20:00 (JST). You can view it any of the following channels: Link.
The show will be presented by actress Yui, with producer Eshiro and director Yamazaki as her guests, and will feature new special footage, new information on the game, details on collaboration projects and more on AA6.
(Mod edit: This will be broadcast live on YouTube, meaning that (for once!) we'll be able to properly restream it on Cytube without worry.)
That time translates to 4 AM Pacific, 7 AM Eastern, 11 AM GMT/UTC. In other words, about 10 hours and 20 minutes from the time of this post!
And as stated, we'll be restreaming and hosting a chat at our Cytube channel. Reply || Read Comments By Bolt Storm

Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice: Case 3 Detailed
This got a bit buried yesterday, between the new trailer and the English announcement, but now that we've all got a moment to breathe -
Yesterday the official AA6 Japanese site saw a big update, covering the information in this week's Famitsu.
Case three ("Turnabout Ritual") sees Maya arrested on suspicion of murder when a priest, Malmel Aatamu, is killed during the final rite of her training. The two were (of course!) alone at the time in the shrine. At the time of the murder, Maya was playing the role of the country's mythical bird princess, said to have protected the country in a time of conflict - three guesses as to what costume the killer was wearing, and the first two don't count. (Incidentally, this bird princess is so popular there's a show based off of her, "Torisaman" (a play on "Tori", bird, and "Tonosaman", the JP name for the Steel Samurai)).
Nayuta returns to Kurain to take the case, and Ema, traveling with him, offers to help Phoenix in his investigation with the old Luminol magic. As for the case itself, two new characters are revealed who have direct ties: Nanashiino Gonbe (Tentative), a man so amnesiac he's appended "Tentative" to his own name, and Saara Aatam, the victim's wife. Saara seems to be hiding something, leading to the re-introduction of the Psyche-Lock system.
Finally, two more major characters are revealed: the leader of the revolutionary forces known only as Durk, and Rayfa's father, Inga Karakhul Kurha'in. Inga is not only the husband of the queen but also the Minister of Justice in the country, making his struggle against the revolutionaries that much more personal.
And last but not least, Revisualization makes its return. Unlike AA5 where the process was shown as moving from left to right, here it's visualized as diving "into" the screen.
Less than a month until the Japanese release!

Ace Attorney novel to be released: Turnabout IdolA novel of the Ace Attorney series will be released next month, on June 15th. The book is titled Gyakuten Saiban - Gyakuten Idol (Ace Attorney - Turnabout Idol) and the summary says: "An incident happened during a visit to the shopping mall by defense attorney Phoenix Wright! The idol Sumomo Momogaya (not sure about reading) is arrested as a murder suspect. Phoenix becomes her attorney to prove her innocence in court. Finally a novel of the popular game series!!"
The book is written by Mie Takase, a veteran writer specializing in light novels. She has also written a lot of game novelization, including for series like Kirby, Growlanser, Persona, Shin Megami Tensei III, Style Savvy and Fire Emblem. The book will also feature illustrations by Kikuyaro, who does a lot of Ace Attorney illustration work (for the Japanese AA mail magazine), though it's not clear if this means the cover, illustrations inside, or both.?Cover art is unknown at the moment.
