CAPCOM and Square Enix Summer Sales of 2020

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - Get Ace Attorney.

Summer sales, (wo)man. If you want more games to add to your library, now is a good time to do it. Especially with two great Japanese companies, CAPCOM and Square Enix, offering many of their products at discounts.

Here's a table of the sales right now on the different platforms:

Nintendo eShop PlayStation Store Xbox Live Steam
CAPCOM Summer Sale Yes
(ending July 31, 2:59 AM ET)
No No No
Square Enix Sale Yes
(ending August 2, 11:59 PM ET)
(ending August 6, 2:59 AM ET
ending August 20, 2:59 AM ET)
No No

There are some peculiarities here. Dragon Quest XI is 50% off on the PlayStation Store, but Dragon Quest XI S is not on sale on the Nintendo eShop. (Dragon Quest XI is the August 20 item.) Meanwhile, Dragon Quest XI S just got announced for release on December 4, 2020, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam. If they had announced it yesterday during it, it would've been the highlight of the Xbox Games Showcase. It's really good. You can try the demo for yourself if you have a Switch.

But, yeah, if you want Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy for $15, right now, the only platform that's an option on is the Nintendo Switch. (You can also get it for $12 on the Nintendo 3DS.) And if you don't want that, what's wrong with you? In addition to that, you can get Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney for $10 on the Nintendo 3DS, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney–Dual Destinies for $9 on the Nintendo 3DS, and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney–Spirit of Justice for $12 on the Nintendo 3DS. Those are the fourth, fifth, and sixth games respectively, with the Ace Attorney Trilogy being the first three. That's incredible levels of high-quality content at bargain bin prices.

Plus, your purchases will help go to making sure CAPCOM doesn't kill off the Ace Attorney series because the director left, if you're concerned about that.

Square Enix games include the Final Fantasy ports, Trials of Mana, and others. Not all of their games, though. CAPCOM pretty much has their whole portfolio at a discount, however. There is so much goodness there, so take a look.

Ludwig just finished playing Mega Man Zero 3 from the also on-sale Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection (25% off) as he was waiting for his copy of Paper Mario: The Origami King last weekend. He'll be spending at least some of his weekend not starting that, but instead playing in the Mario Tennis Aces tournament. Let him know if you're curious why he is so insistent on being a fan of the Ace Attorney games. The comments section is open!

CAPCOM last had a sale at the end of June.
The next CAPCOM sale is at the end of August, but it only applies to Mega Man. Things aren't as they seem, however.
Ace Attorney becomes on sale on the Switch again at the start of September, but only for a weekend.
CAPCOM and Square Enix would have another sale together early 2021.
