Everyone's favorite Capcom lawyer presents his evidence in the new expansion

TOKYO, Japan – April 30, 2021 - Court is now in session! 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.

Watch the trailer for “Ace vs. The People” here!

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.’

Let’s cross-examine the prosecution, ‘Miles Edgeworth’:

  • Tribe: Human
  • MP: 5
  • Attack: 2
  • HP: 7
  • When placed on the field: Deal damage to 1 random enemy unit equal to the amount of open board slots x2.
  • Destroyed by Damaging Effect: Collect 1 piece of Evidence.
  • Death: Consume 3 pieces of Evidence, then return this unit to the EX Pocket.

Other new cards include:

“Ace vs. The People” coincides with the first card rotation. The following card sets are no longer allowed in Standard Mode:

  • The Devils Awaken
  • The Force Seekers

You’ll want to keep this rotation in mind for the “TEPPEN WORLD CHAMPION SERIES 2021 (WCS2021),” a series of 7 online tournaments that lasts throughout 2021. This month’s final was streamed on April 25. Sign ups for May began on April 26, and the Preliminary Match starts on May 2. Each tournament will provide an opportunity to fight to the top to attain Champion Rank and win a grand prize of 500,000 yen (~$4.6k USD). For more information, visit the WCS2021 site.
