CAPCOM Starts Year of the Tiger Early—With Capcom Lunar New Year Sale 2022

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - Untimely sale? Why, it celebrates the BBC appearance!

Hey, listen, I know I just wrote that The Ace Attorney Collection and most other CAPCOM games were on sale just last month for a CAPCOM Holiday Sale 2021. But CAPCOM wants to celebrate more. So they're putting all (?) of those games on sale AGAIN for the Capcom Lunar New Year Sale of 2022. If there is a CAPCOM-published game in mind for the Nintendo Switch or 3DS that isn't The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles (you should've gone for that earlier this month) or a Monster Hunter game released in 2021, it's probably on sale.

That includes The Ace Attorney Collection, which itself is a compilation of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy and The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles. It's 25% off (or $45), just like it was a month ago. All of the CAPCOM-published Ace Attorney titles on the 3DS are also on sale—and I'll mention now that if you've heard about not being able to add funds directly to your Nintendo 3DS, that's currently a Japan thing and doesn't apply to the United States of America. (But you can just add them via your Switch.)

If you buy and play this, you'll be able to answer advanced questions on British trivia shows (at around 24:23):

The Lunar New Year 2022 doesn't begin today. It begins on February 1. CAPCOM's sale started today (January 24) and ends January 31 2:59 AM Eastern. There was a CAPCOM Lunar Sale of 2021 and that actually occurred during Lunar New Year. It also had only selective games instead of nearly CAPCOM's whole catalogue, notably ŌKAMI HD, which is VERY related to the Lunar Year and the Zodiac animals. It's also 50% off right now.

This will be the year of the tiger. Unlike last year, that's not an animal I'm... super excited about. But you'll find tiger action in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy, and if you're gonna get that, you might as well get The Ace Attorney Collection and have the Game of THAT Year 2021 added to your buy.

Ace Attorney is not only the answer to this University Challenge question,
but it's also a great game series that's on sale right now. It deserves your play time and purchase.

Despite appearing on the BBC, Ace Attorney is not currently on sale in the United Kingdom.

Maybe CAPCOM will have another sale once the Year of the Tiger actually begins? Let KoopaTV know in the comments section if you think you could've answered the University Challenge question. If you can take on that question, then maybe you stand a chance at taking on KoopaTV's own series of quizzes! (Currently on season 34!)

Ludwig did publish something more specific to tigers once the Year of the Tiger began.
CAPCOM returns for more discounts in the Capcom Lunar New Year Sale of... 2023!


  1. It’s kinda cool that they refrence ace attorney, but I thought the British show was gonna be “The chase”, never seen this one. In Japan they have quite a bit of video game shows. I wonder why we never got any of that here? It seems to be too late what with YouTube and all that, but looking at G4, that’s definitely a good thing.

    Thanks for updating us on sales!

    1. I haven't seen it either until this time. :x

      ...Yeah G4 is... not good viewing now, so best to leave that for dead.
