Take a Look at the Capcom End of Summer Sale 2022


Starting yesterday up to August 29, 2022 at 02:59 Eastern (which is NOT the end of summer—this makes the third example that CAPCOM very demonstrably does not know when summer begins and ends in 2022 alone) is the “Capcom End of Summer Sale” on the Nintendo eShop. It's given the marketing blurb of “Don't miss the chance to grab iconic games from Capcom before summer wraps up! Up to 67% off on Switch, and a whopping 83% on 3DS!”

That whopping 83% savings on the 3DS represents how the 3DS titles Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney–Dual Destinies and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney–Spirit of Justice are only $5, down from a standard $30. Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney, also on the 3DS, is 75% off as well ($5, down from a normal $20).

That August 29 date is also the date when you will no longer be able to directly add money to your Nintendo 3DS or Wii U wallets using Nintendo eShop card codes, but you still could indirectly if your 3DS or Wii U accounts are linked to your Switch wallet like mine is. But if you lack a Switch, these next less-than-two-weeks are the last time you can add funds to the 3DS eShop to go buy things. You know, like those Ace Attorney games. (There aren't any on the Wii U and there are no Wii U games on sale now.)

As for Ace Attorney games on the Switch, there is Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy at 50% off ($15) and The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles at 38% off ($24.79 from $40). You can get an extremely minor discount by getting the Ace Attorney Turnabout Collection bundle at 34% off ($39.59), which gives you both of those compilations in one compilation.

You may wonder how you can justify getting Ace Attorney when this sale is sandwiched between the likes of LIVE A LIVE (and, uh, Xenoblade Chronicles 3, I GUESS) and Splatoon 3. Well, if you want to hype yourself up for Splatoon 3's Splatana weapon revealed last week, why not acquaint yourself with another katana-using generic anime swordsman like Kazuma Asogi?

They're pretty much mirror images.

You'll improve your wits and logical thinking, which are critical in any Turf War, by playing through the Ace Attorney games. And since they're on sale... now's a great time to buy them. Plus, you'll hone your truth and levity abilities, which are important when reading KoopaTV articles! You'll also be able to participate in this article discussing what appears to be a plothole in the second case of The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles.

Don't regret missing out on this sale before dangerous things happen to the eShop. Keep in mind that KoopaTV also offers Nintendo eShop gift cards as prizes in the KoopaTV Loyalty Rewards Program, and that after this sale ends, you will only be able to use those through a Nintendo Switch eShop account.

The Ace Attorney games were on sale and at these same prices just a month ago for The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles one-year anniversary.
Much of the eShop, including CAPCOM's titles, go on sale a month later in September 2022.


  1. More than half off 3DS/2DS and Switch games? Wow, too bad I no longer have a 3DS/2DS (or a Switch for that matter)

  2. Kazuma Asogi would have approved this message, until he saw the part about him being called generic.

    1. You know, I don't actually believe he's generic, but I gotta say "generic anime swordsman" as the bit.
