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.
TinyCast 022 - Wright 123 Ultimate
Tiny Cartridge • TinyCast
TinyCast 22! After a short break, we’ve returned to talk about Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate's reveal, Renegade Kid's Moon Chronicles, and hints for several Level-5 3DS games coming to the West.
Ace Attorney 123's boxart, charms tho ⊟
When people in Japan preorder Ace Attorney 123: Wright Selection from the E-Capcom shop, they’ll not only get the standard bonuses (desktop wallpaper and a remixed music track), they will receive a cute 7cm charm randomly selected from a set of three.
The Ace Attorney 3DS collection is real ⊟
Either that, or this is a really convincing fake trailer… put together by Capcom and posted on their own YouTube channel. I’m a go with real.
It’s a bit hard to tell from the tiny windowed gameplay in the trailer, but the Ace Attorney 123 Wright Selection appears to use the original GBA/DS graphics (or maybe slightly cleaned up), rather than redrawn sprites like the weird looking iOS game. Even so, it’s been updated with 3D! (Update: There are screens on Capcom’s website showing the new “high resolution” graphics, and… well, I think they’ve been redrawn, but at least way better than the iOS graphics?)
This reportedly has the English text for the three games in it (as the Japanese DS games did), so if you happen to have a Japanese 3DS, you’ll be able to import a text-heavy game and read it for once.
Rumor: Ace Attorney 1-3 compilation on 3DS in Japan ⊟
Word reportedly out of a Famitsu magazine says Capcom will re-release Ace Attorney 1, 2, and 3 on 3DS in Japan on a single cart as Gyakuten Saiban: Naruhodo Selection (Ace Attorney: Wright Selection). Apparently, all of these games have been updated with stereoscopic 3D.
What makes this easy to believe is that the GBA games have been ported and re-released so, so many times (GBA, PC, DS, Wii, mobile, iOS twice). It’s a bit weird that Apollo Justice isn’t part of the deal this time since Capcom is going DS > 3DS. Usually I understand because GBA games are the starting point, and the process of porting a DS native game would be somehow different.
But then I don’t know how true any of this is in the first place! So yeah! Gifs via the wonderful Court-Records… via, like, the games.
Official Ace Attorney 3DS XL cover ⊟
Capcom Japan did use a similar design for a 3DS pouch, but a $20 case is a lot easier to swing than a 3DS game limited edition set, especially across regions! So will you take the case, hurr hurr?
Some thoughts about Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies ⊟
As I neared the final case of Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies, I was certain it was not only my least favorite game of the series, but the worst game. After completing the thrilling final case and experiencing the story as a whole, I no longer think it’s my least favorite story, though there’s no doubt in my mind it’s the worst in terms of gameplay.
Rather than connect all the thoughts swimming around in my head into some kind of coherent opinion, I thought I’d just… list them, or something.
Conflicted about this Ace Attorney “Objection!” decal ⊟
On one side, I think WHY HASN’T ANYONE DONE THIS BEFORE? It’s great, and very graphic, and I want one to put on everything.
On the other side, what would someone think who just saw this on your game console without context? Maybe you’re just a disagreeable person?
Whatever kind of person you are, you can get one from Etsy user argibiCreativeStudio for $4.50.
TinyCast 011 - Batsune Miku
Tiny Cartridge • TinyCast
TinyCast 11! For this episode, we took a brief break from Pokémon to discuss other games we’ve played lately, like Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies, Batman: Arkham Origins - Blackgate, and Hometown Story. We also talked about Hyperdimension Neptunia PeePee a ton for some reason. Yeah, it’s a really weird episode, but we had a lot of fun with it!
Dude’s shoulder game is unreal ⊟
Doesn’t even have to tap a button to switch calls; he just leans his head to one side to pick up another one. Need to talk to two people at the same time? You can keep your conference calls; all he’s gotta do is shrug. He must be calculating his monthly bills in that planner, what with his two phone plans, and the fines he’s racking up from ballin’ so hard.
This is from Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies, by the way, and the photo comes from Rise Above the Cilantro.
Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies is out on the eShop ⊟
Also out on the eShop today and sure to be overlooked: the NES’s Star Soldier. It’s great to see Konami hasn’t forgotten about Hudson, and is still releasing the once-great publisher’s old games on the 3DS Virtual Console.
Props to Walter Newton for the GIF, and additional props to Capcom for this Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies launch trailer:
Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies’ giant “Objection!” finger ⊟
I don’t have one of these. This is a problem!
