Although much of the talking room in regards to Capcom currently is focused on the approaching release for Monster Hunter Rise scheduled for this March, the Japanese firm is preparing other games for this fiscal year. For starters, May is also set to welcome the eighth installment in the company’s 25 year old series, Resident Evil Village. However, there is more to come that is still being orchestrated under the woodwork.
Among some of the prominent properties that Capcom has yet to speak in regards to as of late is Ace Attorney. In 2019, the company released Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy for the myriad of modern devices which returned the first three original titles that shipped on the Game Boy. It wasn’t until this past month that it was discovered the game just sold 1 million copies.
But thanks to the success of the previous three-game anthology, another bundle looks to be underway. In a new finding over on the Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee, it is revealed that The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles is rated for PlayStation 4, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
For those that missed previously, Dai Gyakuten Saiban: Naruhodō Ryūnosuke no Bōken and Dai Gyakuten Saiban 2: Naruhodō Ryūnosuke no Kakugo, or both recognized as The Great Ace Attorney & The Great Ace Attorney 2, were leaked for the aforementioned platforms during the Capcom data breach back in November. The pair of entries are Nintendo 3DS titles that shipped in 2015 and 2017 respectively, but only in Japan.
But now following the apparent successes of the remastering for the original trilogy, it looks the duo that resides uniquely to its native residence will be coming to the west as well for the first time in a bundled fashion as well. More interesting is the decision to pursue a collection for the spin-off series rather than the remaining three, flagship releases.
Even more is that Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney − Dual Destinies, and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney − Spirit of Justice are all Nintendo DS entries that could be carried over to current platforms. But perhaps that is out of the question after the recent leaving of Takeshi Yamazaki that directed the second Ace Attorney trilogy. You can read the full report by heading here.
