Say there would-be lawmakers, have you longed for they day when you could go behind the scenes of the best virtual court room drama video games have ever seen? Are you the armchair litigator that finds herself constantly objecting to every motion or line of questioning the prosecution takes? Do you have a penchant for wild hairstyles, find your self attracting the attentions of weirdo attorneys on the other side of the court room, and generally appreciate the hard work of a good gumshoe detective? Then Udon and Capcom might just have the one thing to tide you over until recess is over.

After already publishing a comprehensive art book focused on the creation of the first four Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney games, Udon has returned with a new tome focused on fifth entry in the popular and successful series. The Art of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies is packed with materials used to develop the characters, look and style of the most recent courtroom simulator. The interior features 240 pages of original art work used by Capcom's art team when developing the game, including sketches of characters like Phoenix Wright, Apollo Justice, Miles Edgeworth, and Athena Cykes in all manner of poses and emotions.

What's more, Udon will also be reprinting the long out-of-print first collection, which covered the first four games. That too is 240 pages, but considering there's much more ground to cover, it seems like the newer tome has a bit more original art to pour over while you're pretending to research previous cases. The Dual Destinies book is available now for $44.99, and the original Art of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney book will be in stores this November for $39.99.
