At last, it’s almost here! Tomorrow, the Phoenix Wright Trilogy will be released on the Nintendo 3DS eShop, for $29.99.

If you’ve never played any games in the Ace Attorney series before, or if you’re one of the new players who entered the series with Dual Destinies or Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright, this is an excellent opportunity. The original DS versions are still fantastic, but this new release will let you play the first three Ace Attorney games right on your 3DS. (It would be even better if physical copies were available too, but no such luck.) The graphics have been updated along the lines of the iOS port’s graphics, which some fans like and others dislike, and this version is supposed to have smoothed out the animation troubles and glitches the iOS port suffered, while also updating some of the original text to remove typos and errors.

Since Ace Attorney is a story-driven series, I recommend playing them in order. As more time passes after a series has started, that gets harder to do, so it’s great to see the original games coming out again.

The Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney trilogy contains Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Justice for All, and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Trials and Tribulations. After tomorrow, every Ace Attorney game will be available on the 3DS except for Apollo Justice and the Investigations games.

Since Apollo Justice is a part of the main series, it at least should find its way to the 3DS. Here’s hoping for a follow-up collection containing Apollo Justice, Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth, and… a localized Ace Attorney Investigations 2?

I can dream!

  1. …I thought it was released on the 11th because that’s Thursday and that’s when eShop updates.

  2. Also you missed out the most important feature, which is Miiverse functionality.
