Today is the day that Phoenix Wright: Dual Destinies arrives on 3DS. I do not care if this blog post is nothing but gushing about how amazing Phoenix Wright is, and I don’t care that- as a 27 year old man- I am going to be as excited as this for anything else in my life at the moment.
Do not care.
Because Phoenix Wright is the silliest and most wonderful game series to exist. For anyone not in the know, it is a game about defense lawyer Phoenix Wright in a weird Japanese/America hybrid nation. In the game you investigate crimes and then defend your clients from getting the death penalty. It sounds absurd and it totally is.
You see that? That whale is accused of murder and becomes your client. How amazing is that?! You get to be a defense attorney for a damn orca whale!
If the new Phoenix Wright is anything like the others it will have hilarious wit, absurd scenarios, ridiculously wonderful pun-names, and so damn much more that my mind will positively explode with joy and excitement.
So. Go play it. It comes out today. For Nintendo 3DS. Yes.
