Siliconera's Spencer Yip came across some screenshots of the German localization of Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney
and rejoiced. Not because German is awesome (although we suppose it is a pretty neat language) but because evidence of any work being done on a version in any European language portends that the English version is even farther along. In fact, if Capcom
is even thinking about a European release, we estimate that the US version must have been out for about two years already.
More information about the European version can be found at Nintendo's European site
, which lists some very Teutonic-sounding names for the twin lawyers known as Garyuu Kirihito and Garyuu Kyouya
in Japan: Klavier and Kristoph Gavin. In addition, Apollo's assistant, called Minuki in Japanese, is called Trucy in the European release. Could these be the American character names as well?
