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 two new characters

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?
