Carrying on from last week’s issue, Famitsu has an article describing more of the Witch Trial Phoenix takes part in, as well as some new art and screenshots.
Phoenix regains his memories at Mahoney’s trial, but without knowing the laws of the world, there’s no way he can defend her. Luckily, Layton arrives to deliver the “Complete Works on Witches”, the book he found during his portion of the game.
Using the book, Phoenix is able to start questioning on Mahoney’s alleged use of spells. In particular, he learns the staff she supposedly used takes special stones that correspond to particular spells. And while there’s a stone for the spell she’s accused of using to kill her attackers, there’s another one set in it as well.
What’s more, as there’s of course no such thing as photography in Labyrinth City, Phoenix is forced to rely on sketches based on the witness’ testimony to serve as a way to consider the crime scene. Is it possible there are contradictions within these sketches as well?
The rest of the article describes the Mob Trial system, as we’ve seen before.
