Phoenix Wright is back in court! Join Phoenix Wright, Apollo Justice, and new junior partner Athena Cykes as they solve murder mysteries and clear their clients' names. Character models and environments are now rendered in 3D, with a few fully animated cutscenes to boot. All of the gameplay systems involving Phoenix and Apollo will make a return, with Athena bringing a new twist to the proceedings with her psycho-analysis gizmo. Athena, with her keen sense of hearing and psychoanalysis training, can identify the emotions behind each witness' testimony, leaving you to pick out the emotions that contradict the witness' statement, unlocking more testimony. Old friends and rivals return, and new characters are introduced, including this game's rival prosecutor, the convicted murderer Simon Blackquill (and Taka, his hawk companion).
There are 5 cases in the game, and a paid DLC case releasing shortly after launch.
TGS 2012 Japanese trailer:
Revealed in this week's Famitsu, Gyakuten Saiban 5 will star a somewhat older Phoenix Wright, restored to his defense attorney position. He has a new sidekick this time too, a lady wearing yellow and white clothes who is apparently central to the game's plot. Nintendo Everything has the Famitsu scans up, so you can see some screenshots for yourself:

AndriaSang has some info:
Tokyo Game Show attendees will get an early chance at playing Ace Attorney 5, as Famitsu reveals this week that the game will be playable at the event later this month. Capcom has prepared a fifteen minute demo, and will even reward those who line up with a special strap as a gift.
As we reported earlier, Famitsu confirms Ace Attorney 5 as a 3DS title featuring Phoenix Wright as the main character. The magazine also introduces a mysterious girl who wears yellow. She's a key person in the game, and will be properly introduced at Tokyo Game Show.
Ace Attorney 5 is set one year after the events of Ace Attorney 4 and sees Phoenix Wright return to being a lawyer. The game's first chapter involves an explosion at the courthouse. The charged is a high school girl named Shinobu. She's very weak and can go into spasms at any moment. In the courtroom, Wright will face off against Winston Payne's brother.
Famitsu has just three screenshots, but they hint at some new gameplay systems. Like Layton vs Ace Attorney, the game will have fully 3D characters. It appears that you'll be able to select to give certain facial expressions during testimony, as there are facial expression icons on the lower screen.
Based off the reports we're reading from people who get Famitsu in advance, Shu Takumi is not fully involved with Ace Attorney 5, as he's busy on Layton vs Ace Attorney. The magazine lists Motohide Eshiro as producer, Takeshi Yamazaki as scenario director, and Noriyuki Iwadare on music.
