In Ace Attorney Investigations 2 eccentric prosecutor Miles Edgeworth is in prison.

He's not a prisoner – he's investigating some nefarious goings on with sidekick Kay Faraday.

The game's official site splurges the details (translated by Andriasang), along with some new screens you can see below.

Miles and the gang will meet two mysterious figures during the game: prosecutor Yumihiko Ichiyanagi, aka Ichiryu, and judge Hakari Mikagami. What are their intentions?

Mikagami is part of an organization called Prosecutor Investigation Committee, which observes movements of prosecutors and weeds out those who are not up to snuff in the horrible-sounding "Prosecutor Purge".

Mikagami has come to the prison to order the case transferred from Miles to Yumihiko. No!

Gameplay will mirror that of Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth, a game Eurogamer awarded 8/10 earlier this year. Investigation, Logic and Confrontation modes will be joined by Chess Logic.

Investigations 2 is out in Japan in February, but is without a confirmed Western release.
