Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney coming to Nintendo 3DS

No objections here.  We will see the fourth game in the Ace Attorney series Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney for the 3DS this November! You can buy it from the Nintendo eShop for only $19.99.

Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney takes place years after the events of the previous series title, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Trials and Tribulations, and consists of several compelling cases where the protagonist Apollo Justice must fight to defend his innocent clients accused of murder. Upon successfully completing the game’s first case, Apollo is asked to join disbarred attorney Phoenix Wright and work alongside Phoenix’s adopted daughter, Trucy. The pair go on to solve a series of quirky crimes including the theft of a noodle cart and the disappearance of a pair of magic panties!
