Apollo Justice HD Trilogy Released!


It's been half a year since the announcement. The Apollo Justice Trilogy has finally been released to new consoles!

Available on all modern consoles (Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, Steam, etc.) for $49.99. Three games worth of value, spanning across two different generations of Ace Attorney graphics and consoles.

Some might argue that Ace Attorney games 4-6 were not supposed to be an "Apollo Justice" featured series, but this was likely always the developer's intent. When Dual Destinies was released in 2013, Ace Attorney experienced its largest stylistic transition, and while some fans often dislike the game, it may have been a neccesary step in order to move onto what the series has turned into as well as what later games can become.


The remaster also includes several Special Features as well as other improvements. The DLC Costumes and DLC Cases that were originally extra purchases on the 3DS (as well as region-locked in some cases, such as Phoenix Wright's Furio Tigre outfit only being available in Japan...) are now all given to you by default and that you can activate freely throughout the game.

There is also the Orchestra Hall, which gives you a jukebox of the entire soundtrack, both for the original game soundtrack, and for numerous Orchestral remixes! This totals to almost 200 songs, freely accesable!

There's also the Art Library, jampacked with both concept artwork and complete artwork for anything done for the trilogy.


And perhaps most exciting of all, the Animation Studio! This is almost like Capcom's tribute to all the custom Casemakers that have been made by fans of this franchise over the years. It may not be quite as expansive as being able to create entire cases, but you can take any animation and background you like and create scenes in official Ace Attorney format!


The only physical version available is on Nintendo Switch, which you can order here! :apollo:

HD Remaster for Ace Attorney 4-6 Announced


Due to the large gap in time, as well as the bridge between the Nintendo DS and 3DS, not everyone viewed Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney as an entry into a second trilogy the way the first three Phoenix Wright games are known for, but good news is here!

But given how often Capcom has re-released the Ace Attorney games with upscaled artwork and graphics, it isn't surprising that the three games are being ported in HD, as well as to this generation's consoles (Nintendo Switch, Steam, Playstation and Xbox).

After remastering and localizing The Great Ace Attorney, this announcement is not surprising.

In fact, this is the first time that this trilogy will include a language option for French, German, Korean, and Chinese, so it is the trilogy's first Worldwide localization!

Capcom is a little heavy on remakes and remasters, but there's always value as well as good business in taking the assets of their older works and making them look even nicer.

The Japanese and English trailers indicates that the interface and visual style will be similar to the previous HD remasters.

This title will be released in early 2024. :hair-flip:

Apollo Justice Storyline Coming to TEPP?N


TEPP?N, the free digital collectible card game developed as a crossover project between GungHo Online Entertainment and Capcom has included numerous opportunities for Ace Attorney it be included. It's almost like seeing Marvel vs. Capcom 3 take a more modern form!

Back in May 2021, Capcom added a Phoenix Wright-themed card set as one of their numerous free expansions to this game, featuring an episode called Ace vs. The People.

Now they have announced a second Ace Attorney-themed deck, featuring the story and characters from Apollo Justice. It's being released with an episode called Turnabout Festival. The storyline of this expansion is going to feature courtroom battles between Apollo Justice characters and Resident Evil characters.

Here is the trailer!

An English Trailer and informative video has also been released.
The detailed artwork in this game bares a resemblance to the works of George Kamitani's art design in games like Odin Sphere and 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, although he doesn't happen to take part of the art team of this game.

More information on this new Apollo Justice expansion, Turnabout Festival, can be found on their website.

Ghost Trick Remaster Announced

Yesterday's Nintendo Direct revealed a new port of Ace Attorney creator Shu Takumi's 2010 DS game "Ghost Trick Phantom Detective". Although the game isn't necessarily Ace Attorney related, it shares a similar brand of humour and features a detective story with puzzle-solving gameplay elements.

A port of the game was already released on mobile devices back in 2012, but now a full HD remaster is coming to PC and Consoles later this year, complete with a few additional elements including a gallery, music player and some picture slide-puzzles referred to as "Ghost Puzzles".

You can watch a trailer for the new port and see more details about the release on the game's website.

Ace Attorney Trilogy Re-released on iOS, Android

Yes, it's that time of year again - the newly remastered version of the Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney Trilogy has been released onto a new platform; iOS and Android. You could previously buy an HD version of the Trilogy on your phones, but it was known for being plagued by bugs and spelling errors. Since then, the Trilogy has had a complete graphical upgrade for next-gen consoles, which is the version that is now being released on phones.

You can purchase the game on iOS here, and on Android here. A limited time discount is available until June 15th, so if you're planning on buying or recommending to a friend, I'd do it sooner than later.

Ace Attorney Celebrates its 20th Anniversary


The first Ace Attorney game was released today, October 12th, on the Game Boy Advance in Japan 20 years ago. For the festivities, Capcom has opened a new website, which details various goods and events being released in Japan to coincide with the anniversary. The site will continue to be updated over the coming days, with a section on the series' history being left incomplete for now. The opening message on the site mentions the series will continue in various forms, and we here at Court Records look forward to seeing what they all are.

For now, it's time to celebrate the anniversary - whether that's starting a fresh replay of the Trilogy or simply screaming "Objection" into the void.

Happy Birthday, Ace Attorney!

The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles Releasing Worldwide


The Great Ace Attorney Adventures, originally released in Japan under the name "Dai Gyakuten Saiban (?????)" was first released in Japan in July 2015. The game was first teased in a Japanese only Nintendo Direct a year before that, with only the information that Shu Takumi was working on a new Ace Attorney project. With only one game left untranslated thus far, non Japanese Ace Attorney fans would have had no reason to believe that they would be left waiting six whole years for the game to finally be translated and officially released worldwide.

For those who have played the game, either in the original Japanese or through the fan made translation worked on tirelessly throughout the waiting period, this new release offers the chance to experience the adventures of Ryunosuke and Sherlock Herlock Sholmes afresh, in beautiful HD on Switch, PS4 or Steam.

For those who weren't able to play the games before, today marks the ever exciting release of two brand new Ace Attorney games, ones which have been teased and hyped up for longer than the gap between any Japanese and English release in the series so far.

The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles is now available on Switch, Playstation and Steam in some regions, and will release within the next day in other timezones. You can follow us here or on twitter for any news about the series post release of this game, but for right now - The game is afoot!
