Having garnered an international following, made courtroom dissent a thing of legend, and inspired in upwards of one person to pursue a career in law, Phoenix Wright is a man of many accomplishments. Yet such triumphs all too often go over the heads of today's youth, owing in no small part to their affinity for their god d*mn cell phones. Yet technology waits for no man; thus, our dashing, raven-haired protagonist has secured his continued relevance, through the guile for which he has become legendary.
Indeed, through the most skillful of legal wranglings (i.e. the App Store approval process), Mr. Wright has arranged the release of Ace Attorney, Justice for All and Trials and Tribulations to iOS 5-capable devices this fall. According to a Capcom press release, the trilogy will include "re-mastered HD graphics as well as responsive on-screen controls fine-tuned for the iOS platform allowing for easy navigation using simple swipe commands." While the App Store will feature a free app for for the trilogy, the games themselves must be purchased for a yet-unspecified price. Included in the Trilogy HD app will be a demo of the first two levels of Ace Attorney.
Yet no re-release would be complete without a helping of trite, meaningless fluff
that will inevitably cause me to cast my phone into the sea. Luckily, Capcom has stepped up to the plate:
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy HD will also come with the "Everyone Object" mode (at no additional cost) to help players communicate their displeasure of everyday situations with the help of popular Ace Attorney characters and sayings. With a simple touch of a button, the phrases, "Objection!", "Hold it!", and "Take that!" can be emailed to friends or tweeted along with an animated image.
