Capcom have released a new trailer for their upcoming DS game Gyakuten Kenji 2, which will make it to the west as Ace Attorney Investigations 2 – part of the much-loved Ace Attorney series. The trailer shows off the Logic system that was introduced in this year’s Ace Attorney Investigations, along with a new Logic Chess gameplay mechanic. Edgeworth’s two sidekicks, Dick Gumshoe and Kay Faraday, are back and even carry a couple of new tools to help Miles in his investigations.
The real talking points have to be the new female judge and the possibility that Edgeworth might become a defense lawyer, though. The judge seems to be a hardline law fanatic and the other plot point is brought in by a new character who has ties to both Miles and his father.
Gyakuten Kenji 2 is set to release on February 3, 2011 in Japan. There’s no news on a Western release yet, but you can be absolutely certain it will make it across at some point. I really can’t wait to see how all of this plays out, but in the meantime, check out the trailer below.
Are your chords of steel ready for this?
