PREMISE


Nina Aquila: Legal Eagle is an anime-themed VN/graphic adventure game, in which you step into the shoes of a rookie defense attorney. Fledge City is in crisis, and it's up to Nina Aquila and her friends to make sure justice prevails!


  • A fully-SFW graphic adventure
  • Take the role of a new defence attorney
  • Get to know a cast of quirky characters
  • Defend your client in court!


With a tone that mixes crime with a light-hearted feel, a cast of quirky characters and a compelling story, NALE is intended as a homage to the Phoenix Wright franchise, but should appeal to all fans of anime & graphic adventures.


Chapter 1: First Flight


In each chapter, Nina takes on the case of a client who has been charged with a major crime, who she believes to be innocent. To prove this, she and her friends journey to different areas around Fledge City, gathering evidence, before going to court to fight for her client's cause.

Freshly qualified as a defence attorney, Nina's first few cases go well... But when her mentor is imprisoned for a crime she didn't commit, her career becomes a casualty of a secret war... A war that, unknown to Nina, is connected to her own past.

A great game is being played for the heart of the city by the ruthless and powerful, but right now, Nina doesn't even know who is playing, much less the rules. She will need to trust her friends and forge new alliances if she is to fight for justice & uncover the truth!


The story continues in NALE Chapter II and Chapter III!

This game is cool

Is the name inspired by the youtube channel Legal Eagle? Or is "legal eagle" a term I'm not familiar with because I come from a french speaking part of the world?

ByEthanFox responds:

In English, it's a generic term for a skilled or particularly sharp legal practitioner:

Like it but too bad I got no mulahh to buy the other chapters welp

Its so cool! Im a bit confused because its just one part, like one trial? So is there more than 1 or is it something im missing out? because it wont let me continue.

ByEthanFox responds:

Hi there, dev here! The rest of the game is episodic, however, we're planning an enhanced release of Chapters 1-3 on Steam for Summer 2021! More info here:
