"Spirit of Justice is packed with puzzles on top of the series' well-known witty and humorous courtroom drama," reads a line from the game's description. "Plus, the new Divination Séance joins popular investigative techniques from previous installments to keep you constantly on your toes both in and out of the courtroom! Phoenix and Apollo will unravel captivating and revealing cases in their search for the truth, working with (or against!) a colorful cast of new and returning allies and adversaries along the way."
