Phoenix Wright Dual Destinies rated 'M' due to 'various crimes and storylines'
Capcom has confirmed to Joystiq that Phoenix Wright Dual Destinies has been rated "M" for Mature by the ESRB, making it the first game in the series to be given such a designation. Previous entries in the Phoenix Wright mythos have all been rated "T" for Teen.

"Due to the nature of the various crimes and storylines in this latest title in the series, ESRB deemed the title an M," a Capcom representative told us. The ESRB, which declined commenting on its reasoning behind the game's rating, has labeled it with the same "Blood, Violence, Suggestive Themes, Language" descriptor given to the original Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney.

Phoenix Wright Dual Destinies will be available exclusively through the 3DS eShop sometime this fall.
