CRAZY SUPER-IMPORTANT NEWS, EVERYBODY!!!
Today, Hasbro announced the release date for season three of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic…is going to be announced, about a month from now. So…we have a tentative release date for a release date of the release date. Hooray!
Oh, wait a second, wrong website. This is the videogame one. Well, some Phoenix Wright stuff happened, too.
That right there is the trailer for Phoenix Wright 4: Journey Through the Mists. As we already know, the plotline is that someone has bombed a courthouse. The Judge, who is secretly Batman, has managed to survive the explosion without any injuries whatsoever.
As part of an elaborate scheme to lure Phoenix Wright out of retirement, the Judge accused the most innocent defendant possible. Arresting officer Obviously Guilty may have something to do with this. Either way, Phoenix decides he has to take the case, so he grabs the first teenage girl he can find, Kizuki Kokone, better known as “Kiki the Kid.” “You’re my new assistant!” Phoenix shouts at Kiki the Kid, then he drags her into the courtroom.
At first Kiki the Kid seems like a useless partner. But it is revealed that she has the power to sense people’s emotions!!
…Judging from the screens, this game is Super Princess Peach all over again.
Anyway, Kiki the Kid can determine how someone is feeling, just by looking at them. This is clearly a useful superpower that normal people do not have. It leads to some brilliant dialogue, at the end of the first case:
Kiki: The witness is crying right now, Phoenix! That means he’s sad!
Phoenix: Thanks, Kiki! I wouldn’t have known that without you!
As you would expect, Phoenix manages to figure out who the culprit is. In a surprise cliffhanger ending, Kiki is arrested for gross fashion violations, as her skirt is far too short for her to wear in public without an embarrassing mishap. Will Phoenix be able to defend her in Case #2? Or will she be found guilty by Phoenix’s newest arch-nemesis, Prosecutor Apollo Justice? You’ll have to buy the game to find out!
