Capcom has officially announced that the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy is coming to the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC early next year during this year's Tokyo Game Show event going on now.
The trilogy first made its grand debut on the Nintendo 3DS handheld back in 2014 and instantly became a huge hit for the "OBJECTION" lawyer and his crew. The trilogy includes Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Justice for All, and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Trials and Tribulations.
The upcoming release will feature both Japanese and English language support as well as overhauled audio and visual tweaks to make the games more modern to go alongside their platforms of release. Even better, more save slots!
We don't have an official release date at this time, unfortunately, other than the vague "early 2019" but we do have this swanky new announcement trailer to tide us over until more information comes forward!
We're pretty excited about this! This franchise - before the trilogy - first graced our gaming lives back in the Game Boy Advance era in 2001 for Japanese gamers. It then came to the West in 2005 for the DS and since then - the fandom only continued to grow. To see it in this generation on so many platforms is a treat and we can't wait to learn more before its eventual release!
