WiiWare Phoenix Wright Makes Most Of Wii Remote

Posted by Damien McFerran

Shouting "Objection" never felt so natural

While some might be grumbling about the fact that the upcoming WiiWare editions of Capcom's Phoenix Wright series are little more than straight ports of the DS/GBA originals, one element is likely to bring a smile to the face of pretty much every fan.

As this zany Japanese TV commercial illustrates, it's possible to use the Wii Remote to object to things. Genius.

On this alone, Capcom is pretty much assured of getting my money, at least.

After watching this, I feel sorry for the pride of all Japanese families who buy this game.

It's badly hilarious. I'll probably get the first one if it hits Europe, but by the looks of it, I'm really disappointed in Capcom for this lazy port.

Is it just me or do the prosecutors get weirder and weirder each game? :D

Til game 4, as much as I love Klavier he is nothing on the amazingness that was Godot.

Silly motion controls are the last thing I've wanted in the wii port. :( Graphical improvements would be much more welcome. Do the ports have at least a higher resolution or do we get the DS images only with borders?

I would so pick these up if I didn't have them already for DS. I do love the novelty of the motion controls added. Pretty amusing commercial, really.

I wish Capcom would stop reading my mind.
Seriously, just yesterday I was thinking:
A. A Wiinix Wright/Phoenix Wiight/Ace Attornwii would be awesome
B. That I really need to replay the Phoenix Wright games. And now this news? Thieves! shot

love it. Just finishing up 3 right now. I can't say I need a really jaggy one on my Wii, though. I wish it was at least smoothed out somehow, then I'd be all about it. Don't they have the images at a higher res stored somewhere?

Sweetness, I never got these games but always wanted to play them (Played some of Apollo Justice and LOVED it). Solves my problem of trying to get my hands on them!

Nice commercial. I already have the games on DS and am happy to play them (I've actually been replaying them recently in anticipation of the new game in February). I DO want to recommend this to some friends, though. I think they'd really enjoy it, and they only have a Wii anyway. Finally, a game that's not built around multiplayer I enjoy at home that they could get into as well!:D

Awwwwwesome. I so feel like some Phoenix Wright after the commercial. But I already have all of the games on DS, so I won't be getting the WiiWare versions... But this is a great chance for those who've not attended the court sessions yet, everybody enjoy!

I cannot wait to yell out OBJECTON! in the most epic finger-pointing way I can next month. Finally get the chance to be Phoenix Wright, yayay! :D

Please let there be a way to object without any motion controls.

My reason to not buy it will always be the ways they DON'T use motion control. Why can't they emulate the DS' style and let you use the pointer to navigate menus and choose things?
