The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles Has Sold Half a Million Copies Worldwide!

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - Are YOU one of those? ...You should be.

Tonight... exciting news! CAPCOM announced that The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles2021's Game of THAT Year—has sold OVER 500,000 COPIES! I'm assuming that the number also includes Ace Attorney Turnabout Collection. (Which should count as a +1 for both The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles and a +1 for Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy, as a bundle of both.)

Obviously, that's not over 500,000 copies at 40 USD (its normal price) per sale. Who knows how many of those sales were discounted, given how relatively quickly CAPCOM started putting The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles at 25% off... and most recently, 37% off a few weeks ago.

As for the image in the embedded tweet, I'd like to note that prosecutor Barok van Zieks is holding up a physical PlayStation 4 copy of The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles, while street urchin Gina Lestrade is holding up a physical Nintendo Switch copy of The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles... though I doubt her's came with a HelloFresh code like my did. And I still have my code, by the way, unused. But it's hard to push it when it requires an auto-renewing subscription for the fourteen free meals it offers. Ah... and even that “YES!” in the text is a reference to Ryunosuke's YES.

Yes speech bubble The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles Ryunosuke
Common reaction to hearing good news about Ace Attorney.

By the way, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy is 50% off on the PlayStation store right now. Why? Dunno. Buy that too. PUMP ANY ACE ATTORNEY NUMBERS YOU CAN! The series has a franchise total of 8.9 million copies sold per as-of-December-2021 numbers. Can't wait for CAPCOM's next financials update to see if that goes up any higher!

What is keeping YOU from buying The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles? If you want it on Steam, it's also available there. If you want it on Xbox... oh well. Ludwig dangerously promises it's better than anything else in your backlog or what you're playing right now. Make it a million seller!

CAPCOM apparently considered The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles and its sales numbers immaterial to investors.


  1. So if we assume a magical AU where video game consoles have already been invented (probably by Iris), and Barok plays on the PS4 and Gina plays on the Switch, which of the remaining characters would have played the Steam version?

    "Ludwig dangerously promises it's better than anything else in your backlog or what you're playing right now."

    I agree. ...I have also been known to promote Great Ace Attorney over my own projects, because I just love it too much.

  2. I’ve never played Ace Attorney (or any CAPCOM game for that matter).

  3. I've had it for months...still not started the third case of the first game, though. >_<

    1. You're never going to encounter the 2021 Character of THAT Year by doing nothing!
