TinyCast 011 - Batsune Miku

TinyCast 11! For this episode, we took a brief break from Pokémon to discuss other games we’ve played lately, like Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies, Batman: Arkham Origins - Blackgate, and Hometown Story. We also talked about Hyperdimension Neptunia PeePee a ton for some reason. Yeah, it’s a really weird episode, but we had a lot of fun with it!
Dude’s shoulder game is unreal ⊟
Doesn’t even have to tap a button to switch calls; he just leans his head to one side to pick up another one. Need to talk to two people at the same time? You can keep your conference calls; all he’s gotta do is shrug. He must be calculating his monthly bills in that planner, what with his two phone plans, and the fines he’s racking up from ballin’ so hard.
This is from Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies, by the way, and the photo comes from Rise Above the Cilantro.
Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies localization insights ⊟
I am SHAKING with excitement after playing the Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies demo, and I had to write a post about this game. Luckily, Capcom Director of Localization Janet Hsu posted a really fascinating article about some of the decisions made in localizing the new game.
The discussion about Athena Sykes’ name is interesting, but her explanation of the process of making prosecutor Simon Blackquill make sense for Westerners is a really great read.
Take for example, his samurai/Japanese tendencies. Both Victorian-era English and Japanese can be quite verbose and poetic, so when Blackquill spouts sword metaphors, the two styles blended together very naturally. Also, you’ll notice that in the localization, we’ve labeled him a samurai instead of a rōnin (which are technically a subset of samurai). This deliberate choice was made because samurai are simply more easily recognizable and readily understood by a Western audience than rōnin, especially when some people don’t even see a difference between the two in the West.
There’s a lot more at Capcom-Unity. You should go read it, then download the demo, then play it 30 times in a row.

Custom Ace Attorney 3DS XL cases ⊟
Another slick production from Tony Sarkees, an actual attorney! I wonder if many lawyers have played Capcom’s series, like, “Finally, a game about my life.”
BUY Nintendo 2DS and 3DS/XL consoles, upcoming games
Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies will be $30 (plus a bonus deal) ⊟
The digital-only release of Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies means Capcom can afford to charge a bit less than a retail 3DS game. It’ll launch at $30, or One SMT4 Credit. Good news for the people who would have destroyed their gaming budgets to buy it at ANY PRICE. Capcom-Unity has some new screens too.
In other savings-related news, Bit.Trip Saga will be on sale for five dollars on the eShop starting September 1. That’s six incredible games for FIVE DOLLARS.
"Phoenix Returns" by Nina ‘Space Coyote’ Matsumoto ⊟
This is one of several dozen pieces that will appear at Fangamer X Attract Mode, the amazing art show returning to Seattle’s 1927 Events during PAX at the end of the month.
How have we not already promoted this event to death? It’s run by two super friends (really, it’s a shame to see they’re at odds for this show), and the list of participating artists is nuts. The show will also feature some indie games (17-BIT’s GALAK-Z and Capy’s Synchroma), music (Danimal Cannon and, OMG, Virt), and more.
Cover is just $10 — be there on August 31, from 7PM to midnight. Prints will be available for sale at the show, and likely online afterward.

Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies DLC episode, costume pack
The downloadable content announced for Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies in Japan yesterday (where the game just released) is also coming to the West, though we don’t have any release dates or pricing yet.
Dual Destinies' DLC will include a playable episode titled “Turnabout Return,” which follows Phoenix Wright's first case after the events in Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney. You’ll get to see the lawyer defend a killer whale against a murder charge, which might be difficult considering the orca’s nickname. Ask rapper C-Murder about his luck beating that murder case.
Capcom says another playable episode and an alternate costume pack (see screenshots above) are on the way too.
Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies' blood pillow
Want to look like a murder victim in well-appointed comfort? Capcom Japan is giving away 50 of these pillows that make it look like blood is running from your head. There are two ways to win (for Japan…):
- Look at the crime scene here, read the three (Japanese) witness statements, and send in all the contradictions you find.
- Follow @gyakuten_capcom on Twitter, and tweet using the #gyakuten5 hashtag about this campaign.
I doubt people outside of Japan will be able to win, but that won’t stop every single person reading this, including me, from trying.
New trailer for Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies
Here’s an introduction to the game’s new rival prosecutor and Guilty Gear reject Simon Blackquill. Capcom also put out a fresh clip showing off gameplay from Dual Destinies’s investigation portions.
Word is that the game will be rated M-for-Mature, a first for the series but a classification that makes sense considering its adult theme, e.g. dudes getting straight-up murdered in the face. So if you’re 16 years old or younger, please get your parent’s permission before picking this up, ya frick.
