Apollo Justice is back for Ace Attorney 5
The hero of Ace Attorney 4 will make a return for the game’s 3DS sequel (though Phoenix Wright will return to star in the game), according to these scans from the latest issue of Famitsu.
This news seems to have crashed Court Records, so I can’t relay all the data fans have been able to deduce based on what’s shown so far, but I think it’s pretty clear from the image — Apollo is now part-mummy, which explains the bandages and missing badge. You see, mummies can’t be attorneys.
Either that, or he’s suffered burns from the bomb that went off at court (the event that kicks off Ace Attorney 5's story). Seems presumptuous, however, to immediately dismiss the mummy evidence and accept that theory.
