Episodic courthouse drama from the master of the genre? 105 yen per episode? Yeah, go on then.

Capcom has just released the first iPhone/iPod Touch episode of everyone’s famous law and order comedy, Gyakuten Saiban! In Japan, that is. If you haven’t got a Japanese iTunes account you’re out of luck, but for those who have, the first episode can now be downloaded for a mere 115 yen (£0.80/$1.25). The game streams content from Capcom’s servers, which explains the tiny 2MB file size; the flipside of that is that you can only play when you’re online, so iPod Touch users will need a wi-fi connection before they can begin. Capcom’s plan is to turn out a new episode every month or so, with the price set at 115 yen per installment. The game’s official site is here.
