Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney — Spirit of Justice Now Released!

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - In America AND Europe!

Let's keep this short and sweet, because I'd rather play games right now than write articles about 'em. Please understand.

We've been waiting a little over a year since the formal announcement of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney — Spirit of Justice (then-known only as “Ace Attorney 6”). Eventually, the game got an official release date of September 8. ...And here we are. The game is out for $30 on the Nintendo 3DS, exclusively for the eShop. Purchase it before September 14 to get the three DLC costumes you see in the Japanese picture here for free, as opposed to $1. That would be The Tiger for Phoenix Wright (Furio Tigre's outfit from Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials & Tribulations), School Days for Apollo Justice (his school uniform from that flashback he had in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney — Dual Destinies), and Trés Bien for Athena Cykes (feminist-triggering french maid waitress outfit from Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials & Tribulations).

Oh, I got a picture of them right here, actually, from my own copy.

So... yeah, I have complete confidence in this game and CAPCOM. To the point where I'm going to buy whatever these are, and I don't even know what they are:

  • 9/15 – “Phoenix Wright: Asinine Attorney” short story and 3DS theme ($3.99 / £3.59 / €3.99)
  • 9/22 – “Apollo Justice: Asinine Attorney” short story and 3DS theme ( $3.99 / £3.59 / €3.99)
  • 9/29 – “Turnabout Time Traveler” full-length extra episode ($5.99 / £5.39 / €5.99)
It's obviously one piece of DLC coming out every week for the next three. I enjoyed the DLC for Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney — Dual Destinies, so CAPCOM has my trust here that going from ace to asinine is worth it.

So... I think that's about it. Lemme get back to playing.

I just hope she gets the death penalty. Lies about the ability to see, AND lies about her gender!

Oh! One more thing. And this doesn't require effort on my part to add, so might as well. Instead of releasing the video that will be the focus of tomorrow's article (...if it's released), Nintendo published this trailer for Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney — Spirit of Justice on their YouTube channel:

I got this out of it:

You really should Follow Ludwig on Miiverse at NNID PrinceOfKoopas. He'll be posting about Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney — Spirit of Justice, whether in new posts or commenting on old posts. He's already made two posts in one day for this game, which he hasn't done since the Miiverse redesign! So he's certainly excited. Be sure to shame anyone who doesn't buy this game.

As Ludwig said he would do, he bought the DLC episodes unconditionally.
The game gets its first sale for holiday 2016.
A year later, the game loses its Nintendo exclusivity and is ported to mobile trash.



    ...Do I have a constructive comment in here somewhere? Well, I played the first case and enjoyed it. And I'm definitely buying all the DLC.

    1. Uh... I mean, you don't have to be constructive.

      ...Okay, so I'll try to get through the first case, uh, sometime this weekend so I can at least have something to talk about.

      You're buying all the DLC as a consequence of you enjoying the first case, or because you were always gonna do that?

    2. Always. It's Ace Attorney, after all.

  2. "In the year 2028, people worldwide finally Feel the Bern!"
    Is Bernie Sanders an actual spirit in this game? Also, is Hillary Clinton put on trial at long last? If not, then I hope this scenario will appear as a case in the DLC. Only then will justice truly be served.

    1. 10 FEET HIGHER!

    2. Whoops, wrong reply.
