Publisher Capcom Developer Level-5 Format 3DS Release March 28

Strider review

Well, that’s one way to solve a problem. Our time with an in-development build of Double Helix’s reboot raised concerns over how much damage Strider Hiryu took.

Ace Attorney- Dual Destinies

The prosecutor is a convicted criminal with a bird of prey perched on his shoulder. A witness gives a statement with a cardboard box over her head.
