Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth

With the announcement of Project x Zone, one has to wonder if it will ever come to America, unlike Namco x Capcom. Leviathyn.com's Jason Fanelli looks at some of the great games that haven't reached our shores. They are stuck in the land of the rising sun.

"However, Svensson had stated in a post on Capcom's forums a week earlier that there’s no plans for Western release at this time.

The Ace Attorney series is back, but this time with Edgeworth at its helm. Fans of the series should be glad to hear that it is as good as it has ever been. So check out this Neoseeker recommended game that got a 9/10.

"Good news, legal eagles. Grab your briefcase because it’s time to solve a mystery and put away some bad guys. But instead of filling the shoes of one Mr. Phoenix Wright in this new episode of Ace Attorney, you’re taking on the role of his enemy turned good guy, Miles Edgeworth. So clear your throat and yell "Not So Fast!!!"."

"As entertaining as the Ace Attorney games are, even the most dedicated fans of the series would have to admit that after releasing four titles with a very similar look and feel Capcom need to freshen things up a bit. That's why, after three Phoenix Wright games and an Apollo Justice one, the Ace Attorney franchise is heading in a different direction with Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth."

""Man, that was a great game. Too bad it'll sell like crap and we won't ever get any of the sequels localized." This was my train of thought upon finishing the first Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, and boy, have I ever (happily) eaten those words. I suppose offbeat titles are the DS' specialty; whatever the case, Capcom's anime courtroom adventure franchise certainly had no trouble finding a U.S. audience, and it's now become so popular that it's got its own spinoff series in Miles Edgeworth: In..."

"Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth gets props for changing up the setting and providing a new protagonist for the franchise. However, the gameplay is pretty standard for the Ace Attorney series, and brings with it the same flaws from other entries."

The Nintendo DS has always gotten great exclusive games thanks to its overwhelming popularity in addition to the unique features. The currently announced 2010 DS-only lineup is already looking pretty solid.

"The story kicks off with Phoenix Wright defending his childhood friend Larry Butz from a murder charge. But this is only the beginning drama for the tenacious legal eagle as Wright faces unexpected tragedies that will test the limits of his incredible deductive prowess. In May, owners of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney will be able to download the bonus episode that appeared in the original Nintendo DS version of the game, for only 100 Wii Points."

For four games, fans of the Ace Attorney series have played the role of an ace defense attorney who takes on seemingly open and shut cases with the odds stacked heavily against them only to slowly unravel the truth and prove the defendant not guilty.

Now it's time for a change of pace and prove the defendant guilty. With the power of logic at your side, you take on the role of Miles Edgeworth, perfect prosecutor (as translated from the original Japanese), and find the true criminal and en...
