Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Announced for Nintendo 3DS

When Capcom Executives recently talked about their plans to bring older titles to new platforms, they weren’t joking. Today they announced that Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney is coming to Nintendo 3DS this November.

The game was originally released in Japan for the Nintendo DS in 2007 with the title Gyakuten Saiban 4, and launches the story of young attorney Hosuke Odoroki (which was renamed Apollo Justice for the west), called to defend Phoenix Wright himself, followed by more incidents.

The game will come to both Europe and North America, but will only be available as a digital download.

Interesting, besides upgraded visuals, the game will inlcude both the English and Japanese versions, allowing players to switch between the two languages, and letting them spot differences for instance in background sings and artwork.

Could it be that Capcom is finally ready to admit that the series isn’t based in Los Angeles and that Apollo isn’t actually eating his hamburgers? That could be the first step towards a localization of Dai Gyakuten Saiban. Come on, Capcom, you know you can do it.

Personal dreams aside, you can give a look at the game’s new visuals with the screenshots in the gallery below, displayed alongside the key art and cast of the game.
