A text-heavy and fundamentally unhinged lawyer adventure game? You must be kidding.Actually, no. A few years ago, the very suggestion of such a game would have garnered an uncaring shrug and a disbelieving, "Only in Japan." But now, the thought of the Phoenix Wright series being available "only in J...

Now why can't we get game displays like this in the United States? This is how you market a game! Anyway, the sale of Gyakuten Saiban 4, which is comprised of 4 episodes of the tried-and-true investigation and courtroom segments of the previous three games, featured the above chalk outline of what w...

Excuse us if this post has a typo in it or something. We're dividing our time between writing it and packing up all our worldly possessions.You see, it's ... well, there's a Gyakuten Saiban 4 cell phone theme for the FOMA 903i that makes your phone's menu look like the game's menu, and puts GS4 back...

Well, that was fast -- faster even than the English fan translation of the Phoenix Wright 4 Flash demo. Less than a month after Capcom posted the results of their "plead your case" contest whereby gamers, uh, pled their case for why Capcom should bother bringing Gyakuten Saiban 3 to the western w...

What's the opposite of OBJECTION!? Oh, we know! APPROVAL! A Gamecrazy employee posted this screen from his store's computer system over on the awesome Phoenix Wright fansite Court Records. It shows a game called PHOENIX WRIGHT-TRIALS TRIBU, to be released on September 25. We'll go ahead and deduce...

We're having a pretty hard time coping with our Gyakuten Saiban withdrawals. Ever since we learned that we wouldn't be able to play the Japanese release in English, we've had to turn to alternate means to get our daily allowance of fake Japanese law. We refresh the GS4 website obsessively, play the...

Some fresh scans on that Gyakuten Saiban 4 tip have hit the internet, ridin' on 22 inch rims like the biggest boss player since Snoop Dogg. And, of course, we wouldn't be able to represent our site unless we posted about every piece of Gyakuten Saiban (he's known as Phoenix Wright outside of Japan,...

English-speaking fans of the Phoenix Wright series got a bit of bad news when they heard the Japanese version of the upcoming fourth installment would not feature native English-language support, as previous releases have. Capcom added insult to injury with a tantalizing web demo of the game that is...

DS Fanboy pal Zachary Hinchliffe is powerfully awesome, and you can quote us on that. He's working with Croik of the Phoenix Wright fansite Court Records to translate the Japanese Gyakuten Saiban 4 Flash demo, which actually consists of part of the first case.It's in a very early stage right now-- e...

Since we never cover anything Phoenix Wright-related, we thought we might relent for once and put him in this week's video spotlight. Don't start expecting it. You know we can't stand those silly games. Rubbish, all of them!We're practicing for April Fools. Did it work? Hit the jump for a special Gy...

In addition to Capcom's official Gyakuten Saiban 4 page, retailer Tsutaya has their own, with the same screenshots, character art, and story information as that on the Capcom page. We saw on Dengeki Online that the Tsutaya page had a new GS4 Flash game up, and we got excited. Turns out it's a person...

Impatient fans and savvy importers know that the Phoenix Wright games in Japan (Gyakuten Saiban) are released with both English and Japanese languages on one cart. But according to Play Asia, the fourth game in the series won't follow that trend. Written on the Gyakuten Saiban 4 product page in big...
