The culmination of all the releases from the series… Fans have been eagerly awaiting this new installment!

Ace Attorney
The first game in this series, "Gyakuten Saiban," was released in Japan for the Game Boy Advance in October 2001. With depictions of "court room battles" that are filled with originality and excitement, the "Gyakuten" series has attracted an overwhelming level of interest from fans across all age groups, inspired numerous spin-offs and has been adapted into other media, such as stage plays, as well as live-action films.

The protagonist of the story is a rookie lawyer called Ryuichi Naruhodo, who comes to the rescue of clients who have been accused of crimes that they have not committed. This enthralling game reveals the exciting twists and turns that play out in a courtroom and is highly popular, having sold around 5.7 million copies (correct as of March 2016). This year marks the 15th anniversary of the game and CAPCOM are releasing a new edition, “Gyakuten Saiban 6," which will be coming out in Japan on June 9th 2016!
The latest incarnation of the game, "Gyakuten Saiban 6," stars Ryuichi Naruhodo and Housuke Odoroki, with the drama unfolding in the mysterious Kingdom of Khura'in, as well as Japan. The stellar line-up includes some new characters, alongside some of the most popular faces from the series. And that's not all, new aspects of the game, such as “Reibai Vision,” have been added, while some of the best loved features are also included. With all the information that's come out about the game, it seems that there's a lot for fans to look forward to!
