A few days ago we reported on the news that Capcom had pledged further software support to the Nintendo Switch, with the beloved Ace Attorney series getting a mention as a future release.

Kotaku UK has apparently spoken to two sources which have given more detail on exactly what these plans involve. First up, it would seem that Capcom is preparing to bundle up past Ace Attorney games in two different collections, due for release some time between April and October next year. 

The first collection, it is said, will feature the opening three games in the series, while the second will contain episodes four, five and six. All of these title are already available on smartphones with HD graphics, which should make the porting process quite straightforward.

However, according to Kotaku UK, these collections are merely the appetiser for a larger release - a fully-blown Ace Attorney outing with Phoenix Wright returning in the lead role. This is expected to launch towards the end of 2018.

Without any futher evidence we can't possibly say that this rumour is true, but it would certainly make a lot of sense - the Ace Attorney series has been incredibly popular over the years on Nintendo systems and would be well-suited to the Switch's touchscreen. Let us know what you think of all of this by presenting your case below.
