Operation Backlog Completion 2024
Nov 132017

Just last week, we learned that Ace Attorney is planned for the Switch within the next fiscal year, and now new rumors claim to know what these Switch Ace Attorney games (yes, plural) are.

According to Kotaku UK, sources have said the Phoenix Wright Trilogy will be brought to the Switch sometime between April 2018 and October 2018.

In that same time period, a second compilation will be released: a second trilogy collection of Apollo Justice, Dual Destinies, and Spirit of Justice.

The same sources also said the next mainline Ace Attorney game is planned for late 2018 for the Switch and mobile devices, and it stars Phoenix Wright as the main protagonist.

Bringing the first six main games to the Switch does make sense, so that anyone who didn’t have a DS/3DS can catch up before the new game comes out. However, I would have liked to see the spin-offs brought to the Switch as well – giving us another chance at seeing Investigations 2 and the Dai Gyakuten Saiban games brought West.

Meanwhile, Ace Attorney Investigations is the only game in the series not available on the 3DS, and if these rumors are accurate, it won’t be available on the Switch, either.

Investigations isn’t the most popular game, but doesn’t it deserve a second chance?

Of course, these are just rumors, so we don’t know if they’re accurate or not. Personally, I would like it better if Capcom released one compilation of all 6 main games, and then a second compilation of the spin-offs.

Do you believe these rumors about Capcom’s Ace Attorney plans, and if so, what do you think?

  1. I don’t believe anything Kotaku says, and I don’t believe anything Laura Kate Dale says.

    So Laura Kate Dale writes for Kotaku now? Well, that makes things simple for me.

    I don’t believe it.

    That said, it suggests that even FAKE NEWS creators think that a trilogy compilation of Apollo Justice, Dual Destinies, and Spirit of Justice makes a lot more sense than your idea of the “the games where Phoenix isn’t the protagonist” trilogy compilation of Apollo Justice, Investigations, and Investigations 2.

    • Isn’t she the one who first heard about the Mario + Rabbids game, though?

      My Not Phoenix Wright Trilogy only really made sense before, when Apollo Justice was the only mainline game not on the 3DS. An AJ/DD/SoJ bundle wouldn’t have made sense for the 3DS since two out of the three games were already available.

      That’s why now, a 1-6 compilation and then either a spin-off compilation or an Investigations 2-pack followed by a DGS 2-pack makes more sense to me. xD

  2. […] it end with the first trilogy? Hopefully not. The old rumors about the Ace Attorney Switch games seem completely unreliable when you consider the time frame, but a second collection containing […]
