Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy HD Coming To iThings This Fall

phoenix829.jpg

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.

What do you think, gamers? Does the news of a Phoenix Wright iOS release warm the chambers of your little boy/girl heart? Sound off in the comments section below!

I enjoyed the first few Ace Attorney games, but I think they would make more sense as a show or animated comic. Still, this is neat for anyone who hasn't played them yet, and has access to an iOS device.

This almost makes me wish that I had an iPhone... almost.

Yep. I loved replaying Ghost Trick on my iPad, I'm sure I'll love Phoenix Wright too. Even knowing all the solutions, it's like watching a favorite movie or reading a favorite book; I've played the DS games over and over again.

And honestly, the Everyone Object mode? Back in the day, fans made the flash-based Objection Generator to spam each other on message boards. It's nice to see that Capcom realizes how much people love these characters and made an official version. (At least, that's how I'm seeing it in my mind.)

It sure makes me wish I had an iOS thing, and can only hope that someday they'll make it to Android so I can play them on my Nexus.

I actually have yet to play the Phoenix Wright series (though like approximately 90% of the internet, i have been spammed with "OBJECTION" gifs), so i'm looking most forward to giving the games a shot.

And AquiziTC, i echo your hope. One of these days i might get around to getting a tablet (of the Android persuasion), and i'd love to see a bit more support for the platform.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
