7# Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Spirit of Justice - 2017

Review81Score

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Spirit of Justice, known in Japan as Gyakuten Saiban 6 (Japanese: 6?, "Turnabout Trial 6"), is a visual novel adventure video game developed and published by Capcom for the Nintendo 3DS, and is the sixth main game in the Ace Attorney series. See also: Gameplay in the Ace Attorney series Spirit of Justice continues the investigation and courtroom of its predecessors, in which players take the role of the defense attorneys Phoenix Wright, Apollo Justice, and Athena Cykes, and try to defend their clients. Like previous games in the franchises, chapters are divided into two types of gameplay; investigations, where players gather information from people and search for evidence, and trials, where they must use evidence to find contradictions in witness testimonies. Investigations utilise the 3D navigation introduced in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Dual Destinies, allowing players to navigate environments from various angles.
