Nieuws | 8 september 2010 - Naast de recensie van PokÃ©mon Black & White heeft Famitsu nog meer te melden. Gyakuten Saiban 2 oftewel Ace Attorney Investigations 2 is namelijk aangekondigd in het gametijdschrift. De game is het vervolg op het eerste deel, welke hier wegens piraterij nooit is verschenen. Veel is niet bekend rondom het tweede deel in de spin-off van de Ace Attorney-serie. Investigations 2 is wel speelbaar op de Tokyo Game Show.
Ace Attorney Investigations 2 is een spin-off van de Ace Attorney-serie, die furore maakte met advocaat Phoenix Wright in de hoofdrol. In deze game wisselen we van kant, want we kruipen in de huid van openbaar aanklager Miles Edgeworth. Hem kennen we al van de games met Phoenix Wright in de hoofdrol.
Miles Edgeworth is heading back to the crime scene for Ace Attorney Investigations 2.
In Japan, the game is going to be known as Gyakuten Kenji 2 -- a good thing, because the first one was known as Gyakuten Kenji.
Most of what we know about the sequel is what carries over from the original. Miles Edgeworth, Kay Faraday and Dick Gumshoe will all be appearing in the followup. Gameplay systems, including Logic Mode, all return as well.
The sequel kicks off at Gourd Lake. It seems that a major speech was about to take place on a stage set up on the lake, but something happened that left the stage and its surroundings in a disarray. Capcom did not share story details beyond this, but screenshots suggest that Miles and Dick will be investigating this particular scene as their first order of business.
Capcom promises new gameplay systems for Ace Attorney Investigations 2. But as with the story, it's being vague about these areas. One of the new systems has the keyword of "Chess."
The System section of the site explains how the game will work, which is very similar to it's predecessor.
Investigation - Investigate the crime scene together with your current partner. On the site, Edgeworth can be seen investigating the Gourd Lake enviroment together with Gumshoe.
Logic - Logic, which was introduced in the previous game, is where you combine pieces of evidence you've found and draw logical conclusions to create new pieces of evidence, or events.
Battle - Often, after finishing part of the investigation, you will get locked in battle with someone related to the crime, much like in the previous game. This is where you need to spot their contradictions to get additional evidence.
It also mentioned that a new system will be present in the game as well. In the official reveal of the game in this week's Famitsu, they said that a keyword for the new system is "chess". A screenshot on the official site also shows Edgeworth with a chess piece.
