First up is a returning series favorite, Maya Fey. Unfortunately, she is soon directly caught up in a crime drama within the Kingdom of Khura’in, where she had been training. Now Phoenix, having been reunited with her just before this drama, will need to demonstrate his skills in the foreign courtroom to save his long-time friend and assistant. If he fails, not only will Maya be put to the death, but, due to the laws of the kingdom, so will Phoenix, as her attorney.
Next up is rookie attorney Athena Cykes, who debuted in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies. She will be supporting Apollo and the rest once again with her ability to psychoanalyze emotions an help discover the truth found behind the emotional cues in witnesses’ testimony with the Mood Matrix program.
The third, and final, character revealed is a brand new one. This is a pious prosecutor known as Nahyuta Sahdmadhi, and is a devout monk who can often be heard admonishing his rivals with the Khura’inese phrase, “Satorha!”. He holds an international license to practice law, allowing him to prosecute in Khura’in and America both. With his unique religious rituals, Nahyuta seeks justice for victims of heinous crimes simply so that their souls may rest in peace.
