 CAPCOM® BRINGS APOLLO JUSTICETM: ACE ATTORNEYTM TO NORTH AMERICA    


A Fresh Member of the Bar is Sworn In for the Popular Nintendo DSTM Legal Adventure Series
   


SAN MATEO, Calif. — November 9, 2007 - Capcom® Entertainment, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today announced that the latest installment of its highly popular courtroom drama series, Apollo Justice™: Ace Attorney™ is scheduled for release in North America in early 2008. This is the fourth game in the series and the first developed specifically for Nintendo DS™ and sees a change of direction for the story line with the introduction of new defense attorney Apollo Justice and a host of new characters. Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney has been rated T for Teen by the ESRB.    


Players star as rookie defense attorney Apollo Justice as he visits crime scenes, questions key witnesses and collects vital evidence before stepping into the courtroom to prove his clients’ innocence. Facing Apollo across the courtroom is the highly talented and flamboyant prosecutor Klavier Gavin who, in addition to being a legal genius, is also lead singer with Gavinners, a highly successful rock band with a string of hits to their name.    


He may be young and inexperienced but Apollo’s confident manner and passion, coupled with his unique ability to uncover witnesses’ lies by studying their body language, will prove invaluable assets in the courtroom as he pleads the case for the defense. Thankfully, Apollo is not alone and is aided both in and out of the courtroom by his assistant Trucy, a mysterious female magician. Apollo also receives invaluable advice from his mentor the ultra-cool Kristoph Gavin, elder brother of Klavier, whose perfect logic and natural instincts have won him numerous cases and the respect of his colleagues.

Is it too early to pre-order?
Carmine Red, Associate Editor

A glooming peace this morning with it brings;
The sun, for sorrow, will not show his head:
Go hence, to have more talk of these sad things;
Some shall be pardon'd, and some punished:
For never was a story of more woe
Than this of Sega and her Mashiro.

It's never too early to give GameStop your money.
Why must all things be so bright? Why can things not appear only in hues of brown! I am so serious about this! Dull colors are the future! The next generation! I will never accept a world with such bright colors! It is far too childish! I will rage against your cheery palette with my last breath!

Yeah, I guess you're right. This is the 4th game. Gamestop should know that there's a demand for it now. Familyvideo.com it is!

Ironic, I just finished the title a few days ago.... it was better than the second game.  (I need to pawn or return my extra copy though - Preordered in two places, b/c I don't trust Gamestop)  I look forward to the full blown DS attempt.

I hope they bring back the DS features they had the in first game's last case. I really want to dust for fingerprints and spray for blood again.

Capcom's online store and distribution coordination is currently MESSED UP.

GameStop is more trustworthy.

Bill, send them an email to cancel your order.  It's likely not even packaged yet.  Just get it somewhere else.

Why would you preorder it in two places, why not just the one you trust?

Well, Gamestop had a preorder bonus.  Normally, I just never preorder period, as most of the time there's no point.  Most high demand games are always easy to come by.  However, I've learned my lessen with low profile games such as Worms 2 on the DS and the Phoenix Wright games.  I had such a bad experience trying to get the first one.
