Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Panel Leads Capcom’s Anime Expo 2016 Plans


Capcom has outlined their plans for Anime Expo 2016, which takes place at the Los Angeles Convention Center this weekend.

That will see playable demos available for Monster Hunter Generations and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice, but, perhaps of more interest, a Crunchyroll Ace Attorney Anime Screening, a behind-the-scenes panel with Spirit of Justice producer Motohide Eshiro and multiple cosplay gatherings.

Anime Expo 2016 will take place at the Los Angeles Convention Center between Friday 1st – Monday 4th July 2016.
