Last week, we reported on the news that Capcom was working on a new Ace Attorney game for the Nintendo Switch, expanding its support for Nintendo's system and bringing its experienced legal team to a whole new level. But little did we know just how much Ace Attorney it would be bringing our way.

The team at Kotaku UK has reported that Capcom has not one, not two, but three different games planned under the Ace Attorney banner, including a pair of compilations to get fans excited for the new chapter, which will come last.

According to the news, the compilations will release between April 2018 and October 2018, with the first containing the original Phoenix Wright adventures, and the second focusing on a pair of other Phoenix games, as well as a spin-off featuring Apollo Justice.

The first package will include a combination of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney; Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Justice For All; and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Trials and Tribulations.

As for the second compilation, it will include Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney; Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies; and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice.

Finally, there's the third game, which will be a new entry in the Ace Attorney series, which will be coming not only to Switch, but also smart phone devices. The game will reportedly have five cases at launch, and feature Phoenix Wright in the main role. There's a good chance that some more cases can be added via downloadable content, but Capcom hasn't confirmed this information yet.

It's to be taken with a grain of salt, as the publisher has yet to say anything on these projects. But this would be not only a hearty way of bringing the Ace Attorney series to the Switch, but also show that Capcom is ready to support the system with a variety of projects. Granted, that doesn't mean we're getting Dead Rising 4 or Okami HD for it – yet – but you never know. This could be the start of something bigger.

We'll let you know when the company announces its Ace Attorney games for Nintendo Switch. But we'd be all for it – no "Objection!" here.
