Geiru is from a 2016 video game! Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice has been available for years. So why does this character from years ago is now an online phenomenon? People had been making fan arts like there is no tomorrow!
The Ace Attorney series is one of the most fan-beloved game franchises out there. Between its quirky characters, it insane cases, and moral messages, it’s captured the hearts of many. So much so that Capcom has revealed that the series will be coming the Nintendo Switch, potentially next year. One of the series entries, Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney, just arrived on the Nintendo 3DS, and the creator of the series, Shu Takumi took some time to talk about how he came up with some of the characters, including series star Phoenix Wright:
There seems to be a race as of late between the various game makers as to whom can create the most expensive “collectors edition” version of the games they sell. We’ve had a few overly expensive releases here, but the practice started in Japan, and they’ve topped us already. This obscenely decadent Ace Attorney bundle isn’t THE most expensive game package the island nation has produced, but it’s pretty high up there.
It’s hard to believe in some ways that the Ace Attorney series has gone through six main titles. As a visual novel series of sorts, you’d think that after a while, the game would get too repetitive, or lose it’s flair. In fact, the creator of the series only intended it to be three games, with it to end after Trials and Tribulations, one of the best games in the series. Yet, Capcom thought there was more room for stories, so more were made. This of course leads us to the newest entry in the series: Spirit of Justice. I’m happy to say that not only does this game live up to its predecessors, it surpasses them in many ways. In fact, Spirit of Justice is my new favorite Ace Attorney game.
