CAPCOM Publisher Sale; February 2020: Ace Attorney Trilogy (Switch, Steam) at 50% Off!

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - Love yourself with Ace Attorney. Even if no one else loves you.

I have significant news for you: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy (2019 edition) is at its lowest price EVER: 50% off, or $14.99, if you're buying from the Nintendo Switch or Steam. (It's currently $19.79 or $20.09 on PlayStation and Xbox respectively. Don't tell me there's a Switch tax.)

But you only have until the morning of Monday, February 17, to take advantage of this deal. That's how long the CAPCOM Publisher Sale of 2020 lasts. Well, there'll probably be multiple CAPCOM Publisher Sales of 2020. 2019 had at least two: one in May, and one in August. That August one is more important. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy was 33% off at the time, and they had just released the language patch letting you play the game in French, German, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese—in addition to the base languages of English and Japanese. Personally, I just started playing the game in French in honour of Benjamin Hunter. It turns out that nearly everyone but Phoenix Wright himself (who is in the current year now a struggling crazed homeless guy) has weird names.

This is the first successful OBJECTION in the series. Something about a total contradiction of the autopsy report?
The whole French language is a mess.
You can switch between languages from the title screen menu, but you can't switch languages mid-play. Each language has its own set of up to 10 save slots, per Trilogy game. (Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Justice For All, and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials & Tribulations.)

I've recently heard someone tell me that they “[n]ormally enjoy watching streams of [visual novels] as opposed to actually playing them myself.” There is a massive difference between watching someone else play Ace Attorney and actually playing it yourself, based on the principles of you having the opportunity to think the solutions out for yourself—which is significantly more fulfilling than watching someone else do it—as well as taking advantage of player agency and going through optional/incorrect dialogue at your own pace. (Ace Attorney is the kind of game where reading that is its own reward, since the dialogue is amazing. Not that I can tell in French.)

At only $15 ($5 per game... and each of these are lengthy, substantial games at a couple dozen hours each), you can easily find out for yourself the difference and you will not regret it.

Don't be like Phoenix.
Take advantage of the CAPCOM Publisher Sale before it's too late!
(That's what he's saying. That he's late. Not, uh, that he's retarded. ...You don't want to be accused of that, either, of course.)

I'm obligated to mention that if you'd rather play on the Nintendo 3DS, Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice, and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy are 50%, 70%, 60%, and 60% off respectively. The 3DS also has demos.

There are also other CAPCOM games that are on sale, as well as many other games on sale from other publishers. KoopaTV only has the time to shill for Ace Attorney, however, so you'll have to discover those other games on sale for yourself. Not that they're necessary when the best franchise in videogames is on sale. Ludwig wants to complete the entire Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney in French before the end of 2020, but he underestimated just how different French is from English. If you want a rebate covering 2/3 of the cost of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy on the Switch while it's on sale, go win the KoopaTV Loyalty Rewards Program.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy was most recently (before February) on sale one month ago in January 2020 at 33.33% off.
CAPCOM paid money to tell people about their sale... but they excluded Ace Attorney from their imagery! Why?!
Ludwig writes in more detail about the myth of the Switch tax here.
In less than 30 days, the Ace Attorney games are on sale, again.
If you want a slightly more general sale than just Ace Attorney games, CAPCOM provides that at the end of March 2020, too.
But the biggest broad sale is the CAPCOM Spring Sale of April 2020.
CAPCOM is getting slightly more creative with their sale themes in 2021, with the next February sale supposedly celebrating the Lunar New Year.
The next CAPCOM Publisher Sale is March 2021.
