Ace Attorney 5 trailer shows off fancy-pants graphics, emotion system

It's the Wright stuff.

Capcom's new Ace Attorney 5 trailer demonstrates the return of hero Phoenix Wright in fine form, with an eye-pleasing look at the 3DS game's smart new graphical engine.

There are clues to the story, too, as the series' lawyer hero is brought back to the bench after a bomb attack on his beloved courtroom.

Ace Attorney 5's major new feature is its emotion system, where players can press witnesses and defendents for more information based on their facial expressions.

The trailer below was released by Capcom Japan, and includes English subtitles courtesy of Phoenix Wright fansite Court Records.

We've yet to hear a release date for Ace Attorney 5, although Capcom has said a Western release is on the cards.
