Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney original trilogy headed to 3DS

Wednesday, 22nd January 2014 04:43 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney is getting a retrial, thanks to a 3DS compilation of the three original games.

The Capcom remakes were announced in this week’s issue of Famitsu, according to Gematsu‘s translation of Japanese reports.

In Japan, the compilation will be called the equivalent of Ace Attorney 123: Wright Selection. Expect this to change if it comes west; the series has enjoyed some interestingly inconsistently titling in the west.

No western release has been confirmed, though, but when it arrives in Japan on April 17, the compilation will include an English option – so if you happen to have a Japanese 3DS, you’re laughing.

This will be the third time the three games have been released on a Nintendo console; they launched on Gameboy Advance and were later ported to DS. They’ve also been released on mobile.

    Cool stuff, although I got the trilogy on iOS already (after having already played some of them on DS) when they were on sale recently, a total steal.
    As for the last paragraph, did all three games launch on GBA initially? I always thought that only the first few cases of the first DS game were on GBA before. But then, I could be totally wrong. Case closed. ;)

    Ms. Hillier! A few things (maybe just one…) Capcom make Ace Attorney, not Level-5. :-) I see why the mix up though, with Layton VS Wright being Level 5.

    #1 Yes, all 3 games were released on GBA in Japan only. When they were ported to DS, they released in English, along with a DS only case, Rise from the Ashes, also available on Wii and mobile.
