I am (still) the law!
Visual novels can be very hit-and-miss at times. Without the right story and dialogue married to the correct balance of interactivity from the player, they can too often descend into dull melodramas where player agency is reduced to skipping through an endless stream of cutscenes. So when the very first Ace Attorney confidently...
Three ace games in one
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy is already in the hands of Switch owners located within Japan, so when will the western fans get to play this glorious three-in-one package originally released on mobile devices and 3DS? According to a listing under the 'coming soon' section on the Australian Switch eShop, Capcom's title...
Legal fees are expensive
A few weeks ago, we got our very first look at the Phoenix Wright statue by First 4 Figures. The character is modelled on the same one from the 2013 3DS release, Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies. We very much hope you've been saving up, as the asking price for Mr. Wright to defend you in court isn't exact
Evidence confirms it was worth the wait
It's been a while, but the ace attorney Phoenix Wright appears to finally be returning to the courtroom. Following Capcom's September announcement the original game trilogy - Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, Justice For All
No objections to this
A few weeks ago, Capcom revealed it would be hosting an "unmissable" Ace Attorney panel on the 22nd September at this year's Tokyo Game Show. Following a bunch of rumours dating back to November last year, it's now finally been confirmed the first three Phoenix Wright games are on the way to the Nintendo Switch. For the first...
The last Ace Attorney game released was Spirit of Justice on the 3DS in 2016. Since then, there's only been the slightest bit of evidence Capcom's popular series would make a resurgence. After a long wait, there's now finally some more convincing information a new chapter could be on the horizon. According to...
There's never been a lawyer who's captured the hearts of gamers quite like Phoenix Wright, Ace Attorney. That's not only because Capcom's Ace Attorney is perhaps the only Bar-based game to hit the big time, but also because of the excellent writing, memorable characters, satisfying gameplay, and fast-flying 'Objection!'s that...
We're later than normal because of a little thing called E3, but the Media Create chart results from Japan are certainly worth looking at. This week they bring great news for a popular franchise, Capcom and the New Nintendo 3DS. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Spirit of Justice has made its bow on the retail scene in Japan and stormed...
Following the very welcome news that Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Spirit of Justice is headed to the west this September as a download exclusive, Capcom has submitted another piece of compelling evidence - over ten minutes of footage from the game itself. The video - which is in Japanese - shows the trademark courtroom action that has made...
No appeal needed
The Ace Attorney franchise is well known but, when considered in isolation, it's a bit of an oddity. With its exaggerated characters, stilted animations and a tendency to be as wordy as a Tolstoy novel — not really, but there's a lot of reading — we'd have perhaps expected it to be a one off release in the West before being...
Just point at something with your mouth open (or not)
To celebrate Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney's arrival in the far west, Nintendo of America is holding a sweepstakes to give away copies of the game to fourteen lucky winners who can point convincingly and with a certain judge-pleasing style. To enter, take a photo of yourself...
Top-notch finger-pointing for your coffee table
Art direction fanatics who can read this are in for a treat now that UDON Entertainment will be bringing two new art books to English-speaking territories; one for Phoenix Wright's latest "I can't shout OBJECTION! on the bus" screen-tapping epic Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies and another...
Slated for a 29th August release
One of our time's greatest mysteries has finally been solved: When in the blue-suited, top-hatted blazes will Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney finally make it to North America!? The answer, dear friends, came following the Nintendo Digital Event. North American puzzle-lovers can look forward to...
A new dawn for the law has arrived
Earlier in the week Famitsu teased the latest instalment in the Ace Attorney series, and the return of creator Shu Takumi as Director. Now Capcom has stepped up with an official announcement trailer to give further testimony on the intriguing Meiji era setting. Confirming suspicions, Dai Gyakuten Saiban -...
Enacting a grandfather clause?
Ace Attorney creator Shu Takumi is taking a step back with the newest instalment of the series — back in time, that is. Alleged leaked pages from the latest issue of Famitsu reveal that the new Ace Attorney title will be set within Japan's Meiji era (1868-1912) and star an ancestor of Phoenix, Ryunosuke Naruhodo...
You won't object to this
The Ace Attorney trilogy coming to Japanese 3DS owners next month appears to be shaping up nicely, with Capcom sharing images of how the 3DS version compares to the original GBA release and Nintendo DS follow-up. The above image shows off Phoenix at his best in court – sprite art and all. From left to right is footage of...
A classic team-up gets some eye-catching cover art
Not so long ago, we delivered the excellent news that Professor Layton Vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney was coming to Europe this March. We've now been given some compelling additional evidence: the game's box art. What do you think of this cover? If you're on
No objections here (sorry)
In addition to yesterday's news, we've got a few further details and a lovely little trailer for the Ace Attorney Collection, courtesy of the official website. The e-Capcom exclusive limited edition set, priced at ¥5,240 (about £30 / $50 USD / €37), will include a drama CD (cover to be determined) and a set of three...
The first three adventures in one handy package
Capcom is releasing a special Ace Attorney collection for the 3DS which contains the first three games in the best-selling series. While the 3DS console's unique screen will be used to give each game a sense of depth, they will remain effectively unchanged from a graphical perspective. English...
Spell to get well
Not so long ago, Capcom caused a few unintentional guffaws with its Resident Evil: Revelations packaging spelling error. You'd think that dropping such a notable clanger would encourage the firm to subsequently keep a close eye on its spelling, but having spent a while with Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies on the 3DS,...
Say hello to Justice
It's time to warm up those CHORDS OF STEEL, locate your magic panties and don the blue suit — Ace Attorney is back and it's as wacky as ever. Introducing a new cast of zany characters, as well as your old favourites, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies is a welcome return to the franchise, complete with a fresh,...
Creators discuss what goes into writing cases
Phoenix Wright and crew have faced some pretty wild court cases in their time and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies is shaping up to appear no different. But how does one even begin to devise the crazy crimes that players are tasked with unraveling? Siliconera recently spoke with series...
Edgeworth ranks up, Maya remains a secret
Capcom recently divulged more details on Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies in a Q&A session hosted on TwitchTV, placing more on the title’s characters and settings into the court record. According to the video, Dual Destinies will be set a year after Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney. The theme...
Still rocking the cravat
