At some point “very soon,” Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies will be making its way to iOS. It’s already live on the Japanese App Store, so it’s just a matter of waiting and seeing when us Western gamers can enjoy the delights.

Previously solely a 3DS game, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies is the fifth game in the Ace Attorney series, with you having to solve various court cases by gathering up evidence and determining contradictions in witness statements. I’ve played the 3DS version and it’s excellent. We can only hope that the iOS version comes to our virtual shores very soon.

We’ll be sure to keep you in the know.

Telltale Games has just released the latest episode in the seven episode season of Law & Order: Legacies.

Episode Four, entitled Nobody’s Child, focuses on an event from New Year’s Eve 1999. The battered body of a boy is discovered in an alley and the investigation that follows unearths a case of shocking abuse along with criminal indifference in high places.

As before, the player take the roles of both investigators and district attorneys alongside the likenesses of characters such as Lennie Briscoe, Rey Curtis, Olivia Benson and Jack McCoy.

Multiple endings are offered depending on moral decisions and the seven episodes will eventually piece together to form a season-wide mystery.

Unlike other Telltale Games titles, episodes are available by purchasing the first episode for $2.99 then paying $2.99 for future episodes or $12.99 to unlock the full season. No doubt a bargain for many fans of the iconic TV show.

If there’s one thing I love, it’s a good mystery. As an adult a child, I read every single Nancy Drew Hardy Boys book. Twice. Encyclopedia Brown and McGurk had nothing on me. Now, as the parent of an audacious 11-year old, my house is a swirling vortex of mystery and intrigue: Who ate these cookies? Who tracked mud all over the floor? Who spray-painted the hamster? I could go on, but I digress…

I also love iPhone games and, upon learning of 99Games Online’s upcoming mystery/puzzle game, The Jim and Frank Mysteries: The Blood River Files, I must admit: I can’t wait to get my hands on this game:

The Jim and Frank Mysteries: The Blood River Files centers around mysterious happenings in the town of Tinyville and leads its main characters, Jim and Frank, on an adventure-filled quest to uncover the mystery that is Blood River. In order to solve the mystery, players will be challenged to solve a series of challenging visual and analytical puzzles while advancing in the game.

The game features:

  • More than 20 hours of engaging game play spread across 4 chapters
  • 70 different kinds of puzzles and tasks
  • Entertaining mini-games
  • Over 90 beautiful hand-drawn scenes
  • 35 interesting characters
  • The Jim and Frank Mysteries: The Blood River Files appears to be a promising title in a relatively neglected genre. Look for it to hit the app store soon!
