Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Dual Destinies Localization - The Trials and Tribulations of the Gameplay Mechanics Team

An in-depth, behind the scenes look at how Phoenix Wright's latest adventure came to be...

Mwahahahahaha! It is I, Janet Hsu - Localization Director for Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies!


I mean... So, um, how is everyone doing? We are just one week (and a day) away from the release of Dual Destinies. Are you as excited as I am?

I hope you've all had the chance to check out the demo. If not, it's available right now on the Nintendo eShop. It doesn't require any previous knowledge of the series, so even if you've never played an Ace Attorney game before, you can jump right on in. (I, obviously, encourage you to do this.) If you're a long-time fan who wants to remain unspoiled for the main game, the demo is a modified version of the first episode, so don't worry; there will still be plenty of surprises for you - I promise! Or to put it another way, there are lines and situations that are ONLY in the demo, so you can't call yourself a TRUE ACE ATTORNEY FAN unless you've played it! *wink*

But enough of my babbling! This week, we'll be hearing from Ms. Ikawa and Mr. Daigo - two of our team's game designers who worked tirelessly to make sure that your gaming experience is as fun and smooth as possible! Take it away, Ms. Ikawa!

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies - Capcom talks going 3D, multiple models and more

The following info comes from series producer Motohide Eshiro and scenario director Takeshi Yamazaki.

- easier to change motions and angles now
- allows for further focus of camerawork
- tough transition from 2D sprites to 3D models
- different models were made for different in-game situations
- court and adventure models see slight changes in-game
- Phoenix's famous pose has been made more intense due to the 3D model
- the in-game model actually switches from the regular court model to a different model to up the intensity during Phoenix's pose
