Phoenix Wright speaks in a new animated Ace Attorney 5 story trailer

A new anime-style story trailer for Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies gives the ace attorney himself a speaking voice.

The trailer focuses on the devastation in the courtroom after a bomb blast tears it apart, and features Phoenix talking on the phone to someone whose identity is left unmentioned. He discusses his new partner Athena Cykes and her new "power," though said partner makes less than a stellar showing on the courtroom steps.

In the end, Phoenix dons his familiar suit and lapel pin in a sequence that should make long-time series fans quite happy indeed.

Dual Destinies hits Nintendo 3DS as a download-only title on Oct. 24.
