Ever since Capcom released Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney on the Nintendo DS in 2001, people just couldn’t get enough of the series. Whether its figuring out who murdered your mentor or discovering who framed your psychic friend, the series always remained lighthearted, quirky, and all-around fun. Then in 2013, the whole trilogy was ported to mobile devices. Finally, in 2018, players can play through the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy on both the PC and Nintendo Switch.
Better Graphics for a Bigger Screen
The Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy has been remastered to fit widescreen settings. This includes enhanced artwork and scenes with less pixelization when compared to their DS counterparts. If that wasn’t enough, the games will include an additional language patch for French, German, Korean, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese. Now players can enjoy the many OBJECTIONS! in six different languages.
More Room for Ports?
Capcom has plenty more work to do if they plan on porting the rest of the series to other platforms. There are other games in the series like Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney, Miles Edgeworth: Ace Attorney Investigations, Dual Destinies, and Spirit of Justice that are still exclusive to 3DS and mobile devices.
There are also games in the series that remain Japan exclusive, let alone console exclusive. These include Miles Edgeworth: Ace Attorney Investigations 2, The Great Ace Attorney, and Great Ace Attorney 2: The Resolve of Naruhodō Ryūnosuke, which pits an ancestor of Phoenix Wright against a re-imagined Sherlock Holmes and his sidekick, Iris Watson.
It’s hard to believe that Capcom would come out of nowhere and announce full translations of these games for the Nintendo Switch and PC, so fans have created unofficial translations for these games. However, fans can still hope for international releases of the remaining Ace Attorney games.
