In one form or another the 3DS eShop has played host to almost the entire 'main' series of Ace Attorney games, including in the West; that requires us to brush off the lack of localisation of The Great Ace Attorney and its sequel, of course. In any case, Capcom is rounding off the collection with Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney (originally release on DS in 2007 / 2008), which will head to the 3DS eShop in North America and Europe in November; all six 'main' games will therefore be available on the portable's download store, which is certainly rather neat.

Like we saw with Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy this one will be revamped with improved visuals and features. Some press release info and a whole lot of assets are below:


Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney coming to Nintendo 3DS means that budding attorneys can see all the courtroom action from Apollo’s early days as a defense attorney in upgraded 3D graphics. Forensic investigation techniques play a vital part in analyzing the evidence to help solve some of the game’s mysteries. Utilizing the features of Nintendo 3DS, players can dust some crime scenes to search for fingerprints and also examine certain objects in a full 360 degrees to uncover hidden evidence! Will the fingerprints match any of the suspects on file and uncover new truths?

These investigation techniques combined with Apollo Justice’s magical bracelet that gives him the unique ability to detect lies during witness testimonies create a thrilling investigative journey.

In addition to the upgraded new look for Nintendo 3DS, this release includes the Japanese version of the game, allowing players to switch between the Japanese and English versions. More than just an alternative language option, keen eyes will be able to spot some differences in some background signs and art between the Japanese and English versions. Text skip options will also be available from the start.

Are you looking forward to this release?
