Athena Cykes – Ace Attorney 5 Artbook Translation (3)

Today I translated Athena Cykes’s third “Character Design” page (one of several) from the official Ace Attorney 5 visual book. This is from page 49 specifically.

I edited the original image and translated it to produce this:

Below is the transcript I wrote up in English in case it is hard to read on the page. Below it is the original Japanese transcript for anybody who is interested.

Her next design page is coming soon!

Athena Cykes/Design Rough Sketches ②

Parabolic Sound Collector・ *Flump!*・ 60s/70s Retro-Future・ *Peep-peep!*

During development, there was a phase where the main motif was “Retro-Future.” The basis of having a yellow and blue color scheme carried on to the final design; but the overall design was drastically different. From the form-fitting suit to the protruding “ball-shaped antennae,” it is quite the novel yet nostalgic design. If this Athena was used as the final design, the “heart scope” system may have been entirely different than as we know it now.

希月心音/デザインラフ②

パラボラ集音・ バサッ・ 60s~70sレトロフーチャー・ ピピッと

開発途中には、このような“レトロフューチャー”をモチーフにしたココネも生まれた。黄色と青を基調にしたカラーリングは、現在のココネに通じるものがあるが、デザインはまるで別物だ。体にフィットしたスーツや、頭から突き出した“お団子アンテナ”は、斬新ながらどこか懐かしいデザイン。このココネがもし正式に採用されていたら、“ココロスコープ”のシステムもまったく違うものになっていたかも・・・・・?
