You won't have a chance to appeal Capcom's decision to keep Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies a 3DS eShop exclusive outside of Japan, but don't let that hold you back from at least giving the game a (free) trial.
The demo for Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies is now available for download on the eShop, at last giving fans a chance to see the franchise come to life for the first time on a new platform.
Meanwhile, Capcom confirms that the first DLC for Dual Destinies will indeed be the costume pack, featuring alternate outfits for Phoenix Wright, Apollo Justice and Athena Cykes. The costumes will be available for download right at the game's release on October 24th, and will be free until November 7th. You'll have to pony up $0.99 for the Costume Pack later if you miss out on this two-week promotional period.
Capcom also has plans to release the additional "Turnabout Reclaimed" DLC episode "shortly after release of the main game." This bonus episode introduces Orla Shipley the whale and her pirate trainer, Sasha Buckler; whales, in a Phoenix Wright case? Like you're surprised.
The publisher promises more details regarding the DLC episode's release and pricing (unfortunately it will not be free) soon.
