A DSi You Cannot Object To

Posted by Thomas Bowskill

Capcom and Nintendo team up to bring a special edition Ace Attorney DSi to Japan.

Fans of the Ace Attorney series will probably go wild at the prospect of owning the recently announced limited edition DSi that features the emblem of the game's police force, Taihokun.

Over the years the series has been going from strength to strength, and now has 4 localised Western DS versions along with a string of GBA (and even PC) releases in Japan. It could well be said that the franchise was the pioneer of such games as Professor Layton and the Curious Village and Hotel Dusk: Room 215. Needless to say, the series is popular, and news of this limited edition DSi will be well received.

The DSi itself is the sleek white model with Taihokun branded on the front, and will set fans back ¥23,940 ($240USD, £160GBP). Due for release on May 28th in Japan, its launch will also coincide with the release of the latest game in the series: Gyakuten Kenji.

And as if the Japanese audience weren't lucky enough, they also are privy to a new series of Ace Attorney Mangas – staring the new hero, and reformed 'bad guy' from Phoenix Wright's days, Miles Edgeworth – which will be featured in the weekly Shuukan Young Magazine.

The chances of seeing a release anywhere outside of Japan are next to nil, so be sure to check out your local importer!

This is neat. This is the second special edition DSi I have heard about. The first special edition DSi I had heard about is the Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days DSi. Those people in Japan are spoiled sometimes.

BTW,I'm getting my DSi today. I can't wait!

@ReZON- Oops,my bad. Well,I guess that makes 3 DSi special editions!
It's too bad we won't be seeing any of them over in the USA.

Importing a DSi would be a bad idea, since you cannot get games for your region! (There is a possibility that a US/K game that you really like is not available for Japan.)

The DSi Shop would also be locked to Japan for that DSi, though that could be good or bad depending on the person :3

Hold it. Where are these fictional DSi games?

Seriously, maytbe DSi only games will be region locked. DSi enhanced ones being region locked would be daft since they would be region free on a the bog standard DS

I'm feeling underwhelmed by these limited editions. I feel the Game Boy Micro had the best limited edition systems (as they felt like more than a sticker or two).

I was talking about DSi Ware/Virtual Handheld when I made that argument. (More spcifically, you may get games earlier, but you most likely would not be able to understand them!)

Too bad this will never make it over...I'll just have to buy Perfect Prosecutor/AA: Investiagtions by itself as usual.

AWESOME! Now if only they weren't region locked.

This is going to be the problem with the DSi, download DSiWare titles to your current DSi, and not being able to transfer them to a limited edition one that you just can't miss.

It's really annoying

BLUE BADGER!!! :D

I wish i could import this (as you can see by my avatar i am a big fan of the series) but i don't have money for that >_>

Why this says that is Apollo Justice related item, if the game is the new Miles Edgeworth spin-off?

I know, it's just that I care so much more about Ace Attorney (and Perfect Prosecutor) than I do about the DSi at the moment. It's one of the few series where every entry warrants an instant purchase from me. :p
