[Captivate 09] Miles Edgeworth to Star in Next Ace Attorney Episode

AceAttorneyInvestigationsMilesEdgeworth.jpg Capcom is going in a new direction with the next Ace Attorney installment, Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth for the DS. Phoenix Wright’s rival Miles Edgeworth takes on the lead role this time around, and as the famed prosecutor you will forgo the usual legal battling, venture out of the courtroom, and examine crime scenes in order to solve mysterious murders over a series of intriguing story episodes.

You will have direct control over Edgeworth’s in-game avatar via the d-pad and touch screen, walking around each crime scene, gathering evidence, solving puzzles, questioning key witnesses, and ultimately putting the all the pieces together to figure out “whodunit.” Then once you’ve pinpointed the guilty parties you’ll confront the culprits in battles similar in style to the court battles of previous games.

The first trailer awaits your investigation after the break. Capcom current plans to ship the game this winter.
