Phoenix Wright 3 misses Xmas

Crime off the hook.

The third instalment in the acclaimed Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney series, Trials and Tribulations, will not be out in time for Christmas.

Distributor Nintendo confirmed the news to Eurogamer, but said it had never mentioned a date so it will retain its TBC status. Well, TBC 2008.

Shame, given that it is the best of the series so far and we were going to include in our list of Christmas DS games to buy.

Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations is an adventure game with unusual court room battles. You play as Phoenix Wright and go around exploring crime scenes with the help of some psychic friends, gathering ammunition to win your case in court.

We had a chance to get to grips with it earlier in the year and called it one of the funniest games you'll ever play. If you have never played a Phoenix Wright adventure, then you should definitely consider picking this up, and if you have - well, it is more of the same only better.
