The Art of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Dual Destinies previously had a tentative released date of Summer 2015, but as we inch closer and closer to September it seems like that release window will not be met. However, it won’t be too far past that at all, as the products page on Amazon now lists the book as releasing on September 24th, 2015 in North America. You can pre-order the book right here.
In regards to what this cool little book is all about, it is packed with artwork that is taken entirely from the 3DS game, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Dual Destinies. Some examples of the types of things you can expect to see inside of it include story boards, character sketches, area designs and a lot more behind-the-scenes stuff. The book is being published by Udon Entertainment and is a whopping 240 pages long.
The Phoenix Wright series has been going strong for many years now, with several titles appearing on both the DS and 3DS. There was even a mash-up with another popular DS and 3DS franchise Professor Layton, which was called Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney.
As for the future of the series, a new prequel series has been created called The Great Ace Attorney. The game takes place 100 years prior to the current series and stars an ancestor of Phoenix Wright. The game is taking the opportunity that the time period allows it to add in the iconic detective, Sherlock Holmes. The Great Ace Attorney launched in Japan on July 9th, 2015, though a release in other regions has not been confirmed as of this writing.
