Everyone’s favorite Capcom lawyer presents his evidence in the new expansion
Phoenix Wright prepares his defense for TEPPEN’s biggest trial yet. Available now, “Ace vs. The People” summons characters from the Ace Attorney and Dead Rising series to testify in the TEPPEN courtroom. This new pack also introduces the card rotation system, removing three card sets from Standard.
In “Ace vs. The People,” Phoenix Wright’s friend, Larry Butz, has been accused of destroying Mayor Cody’s statue! Phoenix needs to gather evidence to defend Larry and prove his innocence. Classic Capcom characters like Dan, Abigail, and Blanka take the stand, and clues hidden within the cards’ text and illustrations are the key to solving the mystery. Grab your magnifying glass and use two new abilities to make your case:
- Evidence can be found by using the effects of specific Unit and Action Cards.
- Present will consume the Evidence found in battle and change the effects of Action Cards.
This is a court summons and there’s jury compensation if you show up: 10 Pack Tickets are available as a login bonus. In late May, a new Phoenix Wright EX Skin for Chun-Li will arrive in the SP Pack.
New Legendary Cards include Red card ‘Miles Edgeworth,’ Green card ‘Brilliant Turnabout,’ Purple card ‘Psyche-Lock,’ and Black card ‘Gearhead Witness Abigail.’
