The Ace Attorney 6 news keeps rolling in, and this time around we’ve got new details courtesy of Famitsu.

First up is the reveal of the new rival prosecutor: Nayuta Sadmadhi. An international lawyer of a currently indeterminate gender, Nayuta is a devout monk given the nickname “funeral prosecutor” in court.

We also get a better look at the returning Mood Matrix, which seems to work as it did in Dual Destinies. Check out the scans below:

Ace Attorney 6 will be releasing in Japan sometime this year, and a release in North America and Europe has been confirmed.
