Kizuki Kokone listens to the 'Heart's Testimony'

Ace Attorney 5 features a female protagonist, as you might have gathered from screenshots and trailers. A new member of the Wright Anything Agency, Kizuki Kokone studied law in the United States and endeavors to use psychological analysis to read people's emotions and help solve cases.

In the game players will utilize her "heart scope," a device that detects tonal fluctuations in speech which Kizuki can use to pinpoint contradictory feelings in a witness. By tuning out the unnecessary noise she can uncover the truth and acquire new facts to help build her case.
