Capcom has announced the Japanese release date for Gyakuten Saiban 5, which is better known as Ace Attorney 5 to Western audiences.
According to a recent issue of Japanese game magazine Famitsu, the 3DS courtroom adventure game will be out in July 25 in Japan. The game features the return of main protagonist Phoenix Wright and fourth game protagonist Apollo Justice. Wright will be assisted by a new character named Kokone Kizuki throughout his court cases. Kizuki can use her glove and earrings to detect emotions displayed by witnesses that can be used to Wright's advantage during interrogations.
The Japanese copy of the game will come with a code for free DLC that features Wright's original suit from the first three games and a few new outfits for Justice and Kizuki. The offer will last until August 15.
Although there is no confirmation on a North American localization and release date, an eventual release seems likely given that the first four Ace Attorney games and its spin-off, Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth, made it way to the West. However, the sequel to the latter game has yet to be localized at this point in time.
