Just like it has for every Ace Attorney game, Capcom has put together a web demo of Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies. And just like I have for every Ace Attorney game, I’m going to try to play this demo in Japanese because I CANNOT WAIT.
My Japanese is awful. This is a game that relies entirely on wordplay and careful reading. Have fun!
Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies will be a digital-only release this fall
Capcom announced that its newest Phoenix Wright game will release to the U.S. and Europe this autumn, but only as an eShop game! The company’s SVP Christian Svensson explains:
“Sorry guys, but a physical release is not in the cards.
Historically it’s been tough to attract long term retail support for Ace Attorney titles. With the release of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies we wanted as many people as possible to be able to enjoy the game for as long as possible. With that in mind we have opted for a digital-only release via the Nintendo 3DS eShop.
I understand that this decision may upset fans who wanted to have a physical version of the title to add to their collection but we believe this direction is the best to take.
We will be confirming details on the price point in the not-so-distant future which I hope will also shed more light on the strategy at play here.”
At least the publisher didn’t just skip the Western release altogether (like it did with Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth 2), I guess? Anyway, watch the first English trailer past the break:
Two minutes of video game characters just messing up each other’s faces in Project X Zone
It’s everything you’d expect and want from a trailer for a massive crossover game — ridiculous special attacks, team combos, and arbitrary HP numbers hopping off characters like passengers jumping from a sinking ship.
PREORDER Project X Zone, upcoming releases
Arino plays The Magical Quest
Mega Man 25th anniversary 3DS case coming
Capcom intends to begin selling this case with standard and XL versions through its online shop, but you should also be able to pick one up at San Diego Comic-Con in July. The publisher is also planning to produce more Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate cases too!
Fantastic Ace Attorney 5 trailer
Man the animation is so good. SO GOOD. And that includes the 2D stuff in the trailer that won’t be used in the game, and the real 3D stuff. I’d pay for-real American dollars for a Phoenix Wright anime, of course.
SMH at the pre-order bonus costume DLC, though.
Cool Monster Hunter 4 shirts by Uniqlo
These are just four of an approximate fuckton of Monster Hunter designs being produced by Uniqlo’s UT line for sale in stores and online. The cool thing about Uniqlo shirts (besides the “looking rad” thing) is that even the stuff that doesn’t seem like it would make it out of Japan shows up in the US stores and on the website!
The official release date on these is May 31. There’s underwear too, don’t worry.
Monster Hunter Zinogre figure
Okay, so I haven’t seen a Zinogre in MH3U yet – I’m still dealing with the occasional Arzuros and failing half the time at that – but I already like this figure.
Not going to lie, it’s entirely because of the lil’ hunter it comes with, for you to swipe away like it’s nothing. The figure is up for preorder at Jlist for $55, or your retailer of choice.
Ace Attorney 5 trailer
Looks SO GOOD in 3D! Of course, the resolution of this trailer is way better than actual 3DS graphics, but I’m at least hopeful it won’t look so bad in 3D now.
And, as Eric pointed out, the existence of high res assets makes it easy to port to tablets/phones later, without messes like those redrawn sprites in the recent iOS remake.
The opening scene is a really unfortunate coincidence.
Ace Attorney 5’s Japanese boxart, LE extras
So, by the looks of this game’s new prosecutor/antagonist, this is going to be a Guilty Gear crossover or whatevs. Nice feather.
Capcom will put out an Extended Edition for the game that will include the cute case pictured above, as well as a Figurine Edition that will include a mystery item. Maybe it’s the figurine. And then there’s the Limited Edition that includes both. Everything here releases on July 25.
Monhun Off-TV update coming 4/15
Aw yiss. I’ve been spending every free moment training on Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate 3DS (which means I’m still in the tutorial) so when the update arrives allowing me to play on the Wii U GamePad, Eric and I will be able to hunt together.
That update is coming April 15, Capcom announced, at 5pm PDT. The update also allows North American and European players to hunt together, so maybe we’ll be able to find a few compatriots when we’re no longer too humilating to behold.
I do not know what I’m doing yet. I’m so bad at this you guys.
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate “Ultimate Comrades” pin set
This collection of cute Monhun pins is up for sale on Culty, the site that brought us that indispensible Monster Hunter Beginner’s Guide. I’ve been referring to that book whenever I’m not playing Monhun… or when I’m not feeling guilty about reading game books instead of baby books.
Here’s a cute little commercial:
