I'll be honest, I have an ulterior motive for writing up this Phoenix Right: Ace Attorney Trilogy localization confirmation story. Wright has caught the contradiction in my heart and I now I cannot lie. I'm here, pitching the reveal of the Ace Attorney Trilogy on 3DS for one reason only. I want my damn Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney localization! Capcom put it out in Europe, but not North America, so maybe if I talk everyone into buying this trilogy I'll finally get my game!
Prepare for the punches! One, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney! Two, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Justice for All! Three, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Trials and Tribulations! Bundle it all together in a single digital release and you've got a bullet-proof case. Even Miles Edgeworth couldn't find a crack in that argument. This is a must have trilogy, updated from the DS versions of the game just for the 3DS.
That means there are definitely a few upgrades. For one, they've introduced 3D to the game, much like featured in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies. Dual Destinies' 3D is actually my favorite use of the feature on the platform. Due to the relatively low movement, it doesn't make your eyes blur like in action-based games, plus due to the art style which focuses on layers in the environment in the first place the 3D adds a lot more depth to every scene.
Also included in the game will be a special feature named the Gyakuten Saiban 123 Naruhodo Selection, which gives players the ability to switch between the Japanese and English versions of the game. English players will be able to see what its like to play the true Phoenix Wright experience in all of its authentic glory.
Pick up the Phoenix Right: Ace Attorney Trilogy exclusively on 3DS starting in the winter of 2014. It will cost $29.99 and will only be available digitally, much like Dual Destinies before it. That's $10 a game, which is an awesome price. It's too bad it's not available via retail, however. Anyway, buy it so I can get my Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney localization already.
