Just saw the AA5 news, and I'm pretty excited. Though, the scans I've seen seem to indicate that sprites will be used again, not 3D models like in Layton VS Ace Attorney.

Thanks for the scans 8-)

Me too! I don't care who the main characters end up being, as long as they have fun cases to solve, with a fun cast of characters, I'll always be happy with more Ace Attorney. :D

From this list, I'm gonna have to go with Edgeworth (that is the scientific choice).

--------

Edit: Regarding Ace Attorney 5, is there a reason why Phoenix's partner is standing to his left in the courtroom as opposed to his right as is normally the case (from my recollection)?

First of all, great news that this is coming to the West! I was a bit worried because of AAI2's absence.

Second of all, website's up! http://www.capcom.co.jp/gyakutensaiban/5/

It turns out that they weren't sprites after all, and they have in fact switched to 3D models. I honestly couldn't tell from looking at the scans! Still, they look very nice.

I was pleasantly surprised with how the 3D looked myself.

Really looking forward to it. :D

The 3D models do convey the sprite-ish look extremely well; however, I could tell that Wright seemed to be a 3D model from the scans.

Liking the new graphics. They retain the charm of the other games in the series, while still managing to be an improvement. I'm also liking this new character that was in the scan that Ubi posted.

Indeed. The transition went through surprisingly well.

Also, I just noticed they mention a new gameplay system. I'm looking forward to hearing more about that. From the screens, it looks like it MIGHT have to do with the mood of the person you're pressing.

WTF?!?! Cap's going to localize AA5, but not AAI2?

I guess nobody here likes Miles Edgeworth... :cry:
