Ace Attorney Investigations 2 beta translation patch released ⊟
What a great month it’s been for DS games and fan translations! You can grab the beta patch for this 2011 sequel to the Miles Edgeworth spin-off at GBAtemp. Naturally, you’ll need a digital copy of the game, one we hope you procured in a somewhat legal manner with a purchased copy (you can buy the import game here).
eShop-only Ace Attorney Trilogy coming to the West ⊟
Capcom just announced that Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy, which collects the adventure game’s first three releases for the 3DS, will release in the West this Winter.
Like Dual Destinies, this will be a digital-only affair, which we should all be able to agree is significantly better than a Japan-only affair. The game will feature both English and Japanese language options. Look for this and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate to pop up at E3.
Ace Attorney manga in a law library ⊟
I thought that a law library stocking Ace Attorney manga was the best thing ever, but then I saw these Tumblr reblogs arguing its authenticity.

Meiji-era Ace Attorney game’s first trailer ⊟
We don’t get any gameplay, but here’s a glimpse of the 3DS game’s new hero Naruhodou Ryuunosuke (an ancestor of Phoenix Wright) and his assistant Mikotoba Susato. We also get to see what courtrooms looked like
in turn-of-the-century Los Angeles during the later years of Japan’s Meiji period.
Ace Attorney’s new assistant: Mikotoba Susato ⊟
I mean, I guess it’s no surprise that the assistant in the Meiji-era Dai Gyakuten Saiban would be a woman in traditional dress, but here she is, Naruhodou Ryuunosuke’s assistant. According to Court-Records, she’s a “lover of foreign detectives and a progressive dreamer!”
The color scheme of her outfit also seems like a callback to Maya Fey’s look, though she doesn’t seem to be related to the Fey/Ayasato clan of spirit mediums.
New Ace Attorney 3DS game unveiled ⊟
According to this Famitsu scan posted by @Lite_Agent, this new game takes place during Japan’s Meiji period (1868 - 1912, a.k.a. Rurouni Kenshin times) and naturally features a new star — it looks like that star is an ancestor of Phoenix Wright. He has a sword, too. Cool sword, new guy.
The full title, according to @CourtRecords_, is Dai Gyakuten Saiban - Naruhodou Ryuunosuke no Bouken, or Grand Turnabout Trial - The Adventures of Naruhodou Ryuunosuke. As mentioned previously, Ace Attorney creator Shu Takumi is once again heading the project, after taking a break from the series with Dual Destinies.
Ace Attorney Piano album ⊟
Sounds great, if these clips from the recording sessions are any indication! The album, due out April 23, features 19 tracks from the first three Ace Attorney games, because Capcom apparently chooses not to acknowledge the rest of them. Via Siliconera.
Objection! shirt by Maximo Lorenzo ⊟
It comes with a little attorney’s badge button! Nice touch, Fangamer. Of course, if you want a more realistic fake attorney’s badge, they’ve got you covered. It should get you all the respect given to defense attorneys in the game.
Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney's EU launch trailer ⊟
While we’re sitting around like a bunch of chumps in the U.S. waiting for a release date, Europe and Australia already have this game in their hands. Here’s what we’re missing out on. :o(
Man, look at those Ace Attorney “Reflect Charms,” they’re huge ⊟
Man, I thought these things were, like phone charm size! This is a very chunky Phoenix. I LOVE it.
Too bad it’s only available as a bonus with online purchases of Wright Selection 123.
I really don’t want a 3DS port of the iOS ports of Ace Attorney games, that wouldn’t even work with my 3DS – even if it meant I’d have one of these guys (or a little pixel Godot or Franziska). But I’d probably buy the whole thing if it were released stateside, Reflect Charms intact.
Ace Attorney 5, Layton cheap in Europe starting Thursday ⊟
I’m a big fan of all eShop sales, even in regions I don’t live in. European 3DS owners will be able to pick up Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask for €29.99/£27.99 and Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies for €17.49/£13.99, from Feb. 20 through 27.
Dual Destinies was far from my favorite Ace Attorney but I still enjoyed it. And Miracle Mask is great! Image via Mirusagi.
