The Director of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies, Takeshi Yamazaki, discusses Phoenix Wright’s two underlings, returning defense attorney Apollo Justice and the brand new heroine, associate attorney Athena Cykes.
First up is Apollo Justice (Hosuke Odoroki in Japan), who is the reoccurring protagonist from the fourth Ace Attorney game. Because Apollo is still inexperienced as an attorney, he serves a simultaneous role as an underling for Phoenix and as a mentor for Athena. Normally Apollo is headstrong and confident in what he does, but after the courtroom bombing and his subsequent injuries, he begins to question what it means to be a defense attorney.
Next, we have Athena Cykes (Kokone Kizuki), the newest addition to the team. She is currently studying analytical psychology and hones that knowledge into a device she uses called the “Mood Matrix.” Athena is cheerful and energetic and, like Apollo, is usually straight-forward and confident in what she does. As the main heroine, she’ll be playing a big role in the game.
