Criminal Turned Prosecutor Simon Blackquill Gets His Own Ace Attorney Character Introduction Video

on July 24, 2013 2:39 PM

In the latest Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies character video helmed by Scenario Director Takeshi Yamazaki, Simon Blackquill is the topic of discussion. Dual Destinies will be released tomorrow in Japan and in Fall 2013 in North America and Europe.

Simon Blackquill (Yugami Jin) is a criminal convicted of murder who has been forced to become a prosecutor. Blackquill is known as the “Distortion Prosecutor” because he psychologically manipulates everyone in the courtroom–to the point of brainwashing–in order to control their actions. Director Yamazaki states that Blackquill’s character was born from a desire to create a formidable and evil prosecutor. I wonder if Simon Blackquill will have as strong an impact as prosecutors Edgeworth, Franziska or Godot.
