Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies, previously announced as Ace Attorney 5, will be released digitally for 3DS in Europe and North America this autumn, Capcom has announced.

Set eight years since Phoenix Wright's last appearance in the courts, the first case in Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies sees the action start in a destroyed court room. It's down to Phoenix Wright and his team at the Wright Anything Agency to discover the cause of the destruction.

Players will have to battle it out in court against Gaspen Payne, the younger brother of Winston Payne from previous Ace Attorney titles, as they defend the accused.

New 3D visuals make it possible to change views and zoom in on areas at crime scenes to uncover hidden evidence or clues.

Joining Phoenix is young Attorney Apollo Justice and new Associate Attorney Athena Cykes. Athena has the ability to psychoanalyse witnesses - using Athena's Mood Matrix players can detect the emotional state of a witness and tell whether they're surprised, angry, happy or sad.

Capcom hasn't said why the game won't be released at retail.

YEAH! Can't wait for this!! Hopefully if this sells well enough on the Eshop, that might be the persuasive enough to Capcom to release Ace Attorney Investigations 2 or for level 5 five to get round to releasing Professor Layton Vs Ace Attorney!

EDIT Quote from Capcom explaining digital only:

We understand that this decision may upset fans who wanted to have a physical version of the title to add to their collection but we believe this direction is the best to take to ensure that fans are able to enjoy the game at their own leisure.

We will be confirming details on the price point soon so please stay tuned for more information on the latest in the Ace Attorney series."
