Defense attorney Phoenix Wright makes a phone call and introduces his new partner in this trailer for Phoenix Wright - Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies.

In this anime cutscene, we're shown our favorite, bird-haired lawyer as he chats on the phone about his upcoming plans to return to the courtroom. He's got a new partner named Athena, who uses some new tech to her advantage. While she's got a power that will help Phoenix in courtroom battles, it seems as if she's really kinda clumsy. Go figure.

Phoenix hints that he's come back to the lawyer game in order to settle something once and for all. What loose ends from his past is he trying to tie up? How does Athena figure into all of this? Will we ever see Trucy, his daughter, again?

These questions and more might be answered when Phoenix Wright - Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies hits the Nintendo eShop as a downloadable title for 3DS on Oct. 24.

While we wait for that fated day at the end of October, why not download the demo now from the eShop?
