Phoenix Wright: Dual Destinies Review

In Phoenix Wright: Dual Destinies, gaming’s favorite lawyer returns to a court of law that’s in shambles. For one, Courtroom #4 has just been decimated by a bomb that went off mid-trial. Worse yet, the reputation of the entire justice system has been destroyed by years of poor conduct from prosecutors and attorneys. In this “Dark Age of the Law”, forging evidence has become a common practice by those looking to get ahead. While Phoenix’s goal of defending his clients hasn’t changed, he also aims to put an end to this fraudulent era of justice by proving that the truth always prevails.

Out Now – Phoenix Wright: Dual Destinies

Gaming’s favourite attorney returns in Phoenix Wright: Dual Destinies on the Nintendo 3DS. While he’s made cameo appearances in the more recent Ace Attorney games, this will be his first starring role in quite some time. As a huge fan of his original trilogy, I’m picking this up as quickly as I can.

Unlike previous entries in the series, this one is not available in a physical format. Instead, you can only download it through the Nintendo 3DS eShop. I personally would prefer to have a physical copy, but if the business realities are such that this is the only way we can get it, I’d prefer that than not having it at all.

Not having played it yet, I can’t say if this is any good yet. However, I highly recommend the original trilogy to anyone, even if you don’t like point-and-click adventure games. I don’t like the genre as a whole, but the Phoenix Wright games are so well written and fun to play that they easily overcome my criticisms of the genre. Tracking down DS copies may prove difficult, though you can try out the HD remake for free on iOS right now if you want. Be on the lookout for impressions from me on Phoenix Wright: Dual Destinies soon!
