Ever the important reoccurring character on KoopaTV lately, we have more to say about Apollo Justice. This time, it is 100% truth, since it is coming straight from CAPCOM and not Nintendo or Spark Brushel.
Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney on Nintendo 3DS will be releasing this November 21 in the Americas, and November 23, 2017 in Europe. CAPCOM has also released a barely-watched “story trailer” for the game:
All of the comments on the video are about people wanting other games in the franchise localised. We at KoopaTV hear that message and agree with it, so please don't fill up OUR comments section with that. Think a bit more creatively than that, okay?
Of more interest to me right now is that CAPCOM didn't even bother to give English voice-acting to their own trailer. Compare to when CAPCOM released a similar trailer when they announced the release date for Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney — Spirit of Justice. Yes, it's not fully voice-acted like the launch trailer was (so there is still hope for Apollo's debut game to get a proper trailer a month from now), but it was in English, and the two characters that got title cards (Phoenix Wright and Rayfa) at least spoke out loud. In this Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney trailer, Phoenix Wright, Kristoph Gavin, and Ema Skye got title cards but were mutes the entire time.

Speaking of very questionable voice-acting, the Ace Attorney anime that we first broke to you over two years ago is finally coming to America. We told you a year ago that Funimation would be dubbing it, and then have not heard anything since. NOW it appears that the first 13 episodes will be released as a Blu-ray/DVD combo this January 23, 2018. You can pre-order it for $48.74, or buy it at retail for $64.98.
Those prices strike me as absurd, because you can purchase Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy for $30 on the Nintendo 3DS (look for a sale at the end of this year) and play the game that is covered in the first season of the anime... and with two other very good games thrown in as well.
Maybe my local library will have the episodes eventually, like they did with Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Official Casebook: Vol. 1: The Phoenix Wright Files. That'd be nice!
Now if only the Ace Attorney movie got dubbed as well, like they promised. Anyone have any contact information for KoopaTV to pursue so we can inquire about that?

The last sale for Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy was the CAPCOM Summer Sale 2017, where it was $14.99.
If you want to know who the voice cast is for the Funimation English dub, that was just announced.
November 21 has happened, and you can view the new launch trailer for Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney and see if it meets Ludwig's standards.
