Fan-favorite Maya Fey Returns in Ace Attorney 6

Fan-favorite Maya Fey Returns in Ace Attorney 6

Maya, Wright's old "right-hand woman", will make her return in the latest Ace Attorney game.

Ace Attorney fans were in for a treat with Ace Attorney - Spirit of Justice's latest trailer: the reveal that fan-favorite character Maya Fey will finally be making her return. The trailer shows us that while Wright is off fighting legal battles in Khura'in, he is reunited with his old sidekick.

The last time we saw Maya was in a cameo in Ace Attorney spin-off: Miles Edgeworth Investigations, but the last time she actually featured in a game was all the way back in Ace Attorney 3.

The trailer also revealed that Athena Cykes, who made her debut in the previous installment, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies, will be returning. She will be lending Wright's understudy, Apollo Justice, a hand back at the Wright Anything agency.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Spirit of Justice will release September 2016 in North America and Europe on the Nintendo eShop for the Nintendo 3DS.

Oooooh, how I love this game series! One can only dream of a fully voiced game like in the trailer. Everyone is very fitting for the characters except Maya. She should sound a little more cheery/childish. Anyway, I'll buy this as soon as it's available.

Man, Sam Riegel still sounds awful as Phoenix, the guy from Layton Vs AA was much better. I guess it's a worthy followup to Dual Destinies, in that they both sound like a dirt cheap anime dub. Now with more kids that are clearly voiced by 40 year old women! Hope we don't get something as bad Kyle Herbert's Edgeworth this time.

Maya was the first, and easily the worst assistant character in the games. Pearl, Ema, Trucy, Kay and Athena all managed to be entertaining without being ungodly stupid for the most part. Here's hoping they don't go full on original AA with her.

I also hope they're continuing their proud tradition of ignoring T&T's final sequence. It was nothing short of character assassination for everyone involved. Probably why Maya was on ice for so long, she came out of that looking like a horrible, stupid moron.

I'll be honest, overall AA6 looks far less interesting than the game we're never going to get. Probably better than Dual Destinies though.

Do you mean Gyakuten Kenji 2 or Dai Gyakuten Saiban?

Having played all of them...

GK2 is still the king of the franchise. I like GS6 as a standalone game more than DGS as a standalone game, but DGS is an amazing first entry in a series (which I hope actually comes to fruition) whereas GS6 makes me incredibly scared for the future of the franchise. And yes, all three were better than Dual Destinies.

I also don't really get why they fill the trailers with voiced lines, considering the actual game has barely any...

After Dual Destinies, I'm honestly more interested in what the B-team are doing than with whatever Phoenix and Maya are up to. The problem with Phoenix is he tended to fall into the same schtick with all of his assistants (probably in an attempt to imitate the original chemistry with Maya I guess), but the relationship between Apollo and Athena felt like a fresh dynamic. Specifically, I want cases where you play as Athena with Apollo helping you like at the lawyer school case in DD, because he's so underrated as a snarky support character.

Aww and here I was hoping it'd be Fan Favorite Deadpool, or Fan Favorite Sanguinius, or Fan Favorite Spicy Buffalo chicken Wings...

Meant DGS, yeah. Luckily, there is a really good fantranslation for AAI2 that allowed me to play it. It's baffling how much better the writing is on the whole for it compared to the Dual Destinies team's other games. Heard it was because of some anniversary thing that lead a colab with a detective novel writer.

I read that DGS didn't do too well in Japan. I hope it atleast gets 1 sequel, a lot of impressions I read say that it was made with the expectation of getting another game and a lot of secondary plotlines were inconclusive as a result. A shame that the AA game we get to miss out on is the one helmed by Shu Takumi.

I do take solace in the fact that I don't have to play through another DD with AA6 though.

"Fan Favorite"

Or, in other words, The Deuteragonist of over half the games that was just kinda written off for no good reason. Fan Favorite is a weird describer, considering how integral she is with the backstory of Phoenix.

Speaking of fan favs, Is Larry dead? He wasn't in either Apollo or Dual Destinies... Actually, that'd probably make for a good case... And Gumshoe was the Killer!

Also, this isn't really news, she's been revealed quite a while ago. =p And I'm just going to make a wild guess here and say that she will end up being a defendant.

Nope, last time we saw her was in Project X Zone 2, also, apparently her name is Mayoi, not Maya, a Japanese name, for the Japanese priestess with a freaking magatama necklace. Whoda thunk it.

I never played these games but I didn't expect their localization to be this degree of 4kids americanization x.X. Mayoi was pretty funny in PxZ2 which made me wana check em out but if they're this unrecognizable I may have to import lol.

It was fine in the first game, it's not really noticable, but in the later games well...


It's actually part of the charm.

To be fair, at this point in the series she must in her mid-late twenties.

A. Weird that she'd be called a "fan favourite" when she's in, like, half the series.

B. Nooooo I want more Simon Blackquill. I don't care, just do it. PANDER TO ME, ACE ATTORNEY

I'm so buzzed for this! Though to be honest i'm more excited that Athena Cykes is going to be there than Maya

Fuck yes, this! 100xthis, give us Simon Blackquill!

You'll get Wendy Oldbag and you'll like it.
