For all the big news of today, the one I'd like to dedicate my article to today is... that Capcom has announced that Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies will only be $29.99 in America, and €24.99 in Europe. There's a screenshot below if you don't believe me!
So when is Autumn? Presumably November or before. So sometime within the next three months. Sounds good to me! I've written before that it's our duty to buy this game and show Capcom how much we support the series. Since it's a discounted price than what you'd get at retail (even though I'd pay full price for it...and more!), there really shouldn't be any excuse or complaining here. Ace Attorney games are typically longer than 30 hours anyway, so you get much better value than you would with a lot of other games nowadays.
I'm sure there will be some Dual Destinies merchandise you can buy for your precious collection! And now you'll have more money to spend on it!
I've already written about the business reasons behind the digital download only, and I haven't heard anything coherent arguing against that. This is the fastest way to get it to market. So stop being a twit and wait patiently for the eShop release and all will be well. If it were a physical release, you'd have to wait even longer.
And then Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney comes out in (presumably early) 2014. Yeah, I'm pacified. We can make chants for Ace Attorney Investigations 2 after we've gotten two helpings of Ace Attorney goodness in the next half year.
Remember: We're much better off than those poor Mega Man fans!
