Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies will be the first installment of the Ace Attorney series to use full 3D graphics, and Art Director Takuro Fuse wrote about it on the Capcom-Unity blog thanks to the translation of Localization director Janet Hsu.
By refining character aesthetics and utilizing “slick camera work,” Fuse and his team were able to show off a “new, hybrid Phoenix” that successfully merged 2D and 3D art.
It doesn’t just stop there. Apparently, 2D and 3D wasn’t the only issue, there were hours of various art concepts each character went through. For example, Fuse revealed the new rival prosecutor, Simon Blackquill, wasn’t as easy to develop; he took several times to design. Fuse was finally satisfied with Blackquill’s design by blending black-and-white color scheme of stereotypical jail garb with the fashion sense of a ronin samurai.
The final verdict is ultimately in your hands as Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies will release October 24th for 3DS.
