Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney

Ace Attorney fans will be excited to hear that Famitsu has announced an Ace Attorney collection for the Nintendo 3DS. The collection will include the first three games in the series, known in the West as Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Justice for All, and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations.

Although 3D effects will be added to the games, it does not appear that the collection will feature full remakes of the original trilogy. As was true with the DS versions of the games, an English-language option will be available for all three games in the collection. The box art for the collection will be drawn by Tatsuro Iwamoto, the artist who did the box art for the first three games.

The collection is set for release in Japan April 17th and will cost ¥3,990. Those who pre-order the game will receive a download code for some original artwork and specially arranged versions of the series’ background music. The announcement also disclosed that a new drama CD will be released at the same time as the collection featuring Phoenix Wright, Miles Edgeworth, and Godot, who will be making his debut in an Ace Attorney audio production.

Unfortunately, there’s no news yet about whether or not we will see this collection in the West, but we’ll certainly keep you posted. In the meantime, be sure to check out our review of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies and stay tuned for more Ace Attorney-related news!

    I’m considering this since I still need to play through Trials and Tribulations. I bought the iOS trilogy and was put off by the inclusions in the updated translation. Harlem Shake references? Seriously?

    • Moxie Fox

      ummm I have the Japanese versions of the games as they also include the English translation and localization, that “updated Harlem shake” reference was also in there. Many years before the that got popular

    OMG want want want

  • Thanatos2k

    All I want is Edgeworth Investigations 2, not games I’ve already played,

  • AxleMagnum

    I’ll definitely pick this up if it comes stateside, since I wanted to get them anyways.

  • taekk

    I really want the drama CD now…

  • zeezee

    I hope that this gets localized. I just got a 3DS and played the demo of the Dual Destinies. I couldn’t believe how much I liked the game. I really enjoyed it and I’ve been considering picking up all of the DS games as well. This would be a far better option.

    I refuse to buy digital games. Didn’t buy the newest one because its only digital, but hopefully this will get a physical copy in NA 🙁

  • Pedro Rosas

    I been wanting to get the whole collection from eBay, I might as well just pick this one up now that the 3DS can be region free
