Ace Attorney Trilogy Gets December Release Date

Posted by Ben Huber on Oct 11, 2014 in Videogames


Phoenix Wright and crew will be returning to the Nintendo 3DS this winter. We had heard about the updated trilogy a while ago, which will include the first three games in the Ace Attorney series, remastered with updated visuals; but now we’ve got a release date: December 9th in the US and December 11th in Europe. In case you’re wondering, this also includes the bonus case that was added to the first game. The trilogy will be available exclusively on the eShop, which seems to be Capcom’s favorite way to release the Ace Attorney games these days. It’ll run you $29.99, and if you haven’t played them yet, this is a great way to experience these three classic games. Read more…

TGS 2014 Trailer For Dai Gyakuten Saiban Released

Posted by Ben Huber on Sep 19, 2014 in Videogames


We’re getting a fresh look at Dai Gyakuten Saiban — the next game from Shu Takumi. You probably know the series as Ace Attorney: Phoenix Wright here in the US. This new game was announced several months ago, and will feature a new protagonist in the Meiji era of Japan, and then he’ll travel to London for the majority of the story. Why London, you ask? Because Sherlock Holmes and Watson are part of this game, too! It definitely looks to combine many of Takumi’s favorite things into a fresh spin on the Ace Attorney series. Plus, the music sounds amazing. Check out the trailer below (turn on annotations for subtitles). Read more…

Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies Is Coming To iOS In The US

Posted by Ben Huber on Aug 10, 2014 in Videogames


Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies was one of my favorite games last year. It combined great characters with an engaging story that keeps you hooked, trying to figure out the true culprit in each murder mystery. Now, it’ll have an even wider audience! The game has already come out on iOS in Japan, but Capcom has now confirmed that the iOS version will see a release in the US as well – in gorgeous HD. Huzzah! WE’re also getting the Ace Attorney Trilogy HD release on the 3DS this fall, so it’s a good time to jump into the series if you’ve never played it before! Read more…

Play As Phoenix Wright’s Ancestor In Meiji-Era Ace Attorney Game

Posted by Bob Muir on Apr 24, 2014 in Videogames

Meiji-era Ace Attorney

Nintendo’s Satoru Iwata had previously said that the next Ace Attorney game would be totally different, and now we know why: it’s set in Japan’s Meiji era (1868-1912). The main character is no longer Phoenix Wright, but his ancestor, who has a new sidekick as well. The game is for 3DS, so hopefully Capcom will still bring this over. (I’m nervous ever since they declined to localize Ace Attorney Investigations 2.) I just wonder how they’re going to localize the game now that it’s very clearly, unavoidably set in Japan. You can’t just say that sushi are hamburgers now. Read more…

Professor Layton Vs. Phoenix Wright Finally Confirmed For US, EU Release

Posted by Bob Muir on Aug 8, 2013 in Videogames

Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney

For a while there, I thought it was entirely possible that Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney would not be released outside of Japan. Sure, Level-5 often takes an unusually long time to announce Western releases for their Layton games, but with so many other niche games not leaving Japan, you can’t blame me for being nervous. It didn’t help that Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies is only getting a digital release, and Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth 2 never got translated at all. But lo and behold, during the latest Nintendo Direct, they finally confirmed that the US (and it turns out also Europe) will be getting this crossover game in 2014. Read more…

Capcom May Release Ace Attorney 5 Physically If Fans Demand It

Posted by Bob Muir on Jun 19, 2013 in Videogames

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies

Capcom’s Ace Attorney series has supposedly seen diminishing returns in the West, with the sequel to Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth never getting a translation. The series jumps to 3DS for Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies, and it’s getting an English localization, so that’s good news for fans. However, the trade-off is that it will be a digital-only release, a move that will help meet an exact level of demand and cut costs for physical copies and distribution. But according to Capcom’s Christian Svensson, a physical release is still possible, with enough fan support. Read more…

Ace Attorney Trilogy HD Coming to iOS This Week

Posted by Ben Huber on May 27, 2013 in Videogames


After many delays and pushing the game back for unknown reasons, the Ace Attorney Trilogy HD will finally arrive on iOS in the US this week. The official release date is May 30th. The first two cases are free to play, and after that the first game is available for $5.99, and the second and third are $6.99. You can also grab everything in one go for $16.99. While that is a lot for an iOS game, getting all three on the Nintendo DS (especially if you have to hunt down the slightly rarer games can cost you $90 or more. I’m not quite sold on the way they’re HD-ing the sprites, as everything’s outlines seem to be a bit wonky, but I’m ready to give it a shot. Read more…

New Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney Trailer from TGS 2012

Posted by Ben Huber on Sep 21, 2012 in Videogames


I’ve been loving all the new Ace Attorney news lately, as I am a huge Phoenix Wright fan. So I was particularly interested in Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright, a game announced last year that crosses two of the most popular Nintendo DS/3DS franchises into one story. At TGS this year, Level 5 and Capcom showed off a new trailer for the game, and suffice to say, it looks great. While the trailer is all in Japanese, you can catch a subbed version here if you’re curious. The game comes out November 29th in Japan. Chances are high it will be localized, but nothing solid yet. Level 5, I’m counting on you! Read more…
