Well, the time has finally come - an Ace Attorney game has been released on the new generation of consoles. Of course, the excitement of this occasion is dampened slightly for fans of the series, as this is the port of a trilogy that's already received five (or more, it's a lot to keep track of) ports and is playable on everything from your phone to your 3DS. But this at least looks to be the cleanest, most extensive port yet, and its availability on most modern platforms means that the reach of the trilogy now extends further than ever.

The PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch versions of this game launch today in Japan, with the Steam version to follow at a later date. An English release has been announced to come out sometime later this year (last minute update: the release date for the English language version will be announced next week), but if you can't wait, the game does have English language support.

It may not be the new Ace Attorney game we were all clamouring for, but hopefully it'll be a way to get new fans into the series, and a way for old fans to revisit the original trilogy.

A new Nintendo Direct has been announced for air tomorrow, and as always Court Records will be hosting a stream of the Direct at Although Ace Attorney news is unlikely, we may possibly see a release date announcement for the HD Trilogy in the West.

The Direct airs at 2pm PT, 5pm ET, 10pm GMT and 11pm CET.

In addition, if you don't follow our twitter, you might have missed some smaller items of Ace Attorney related news, including the fact that the soundtracks for most of the games have been recently released on Spotify. You can find them by searching for 'Capcom Sound Team'.

In order to promote the AA Trilogy remaster, Capcom has also released a remaster of an old Ace Attorney Investigations karaoke video, which features the Steel Samurai theme song with lyrics. You can find that here.

Hope to see some of you on the Direct stream tomorrow!

After first being teased way back in 2014, First 4 Figures has finally unveiled its Phoenix Wright statue, which opens for pre-orders on Friday 23rd November. You can find out how to pre-order the figure and watch a short video on F4F's website here (but be warned, they're usually on the pricey side). Even if you don't preorder, I think it's a promising sign that we're finally seeing some AA merch widely available outside Japan.

It's with a heavy heart today that I report that Shu Takumi has let the world know that his beloved Pomeranian Missile passed away this past summer. He was 11.

Following the airing of last night's episode of the Ace Attorney anime, which saw a young Edgeworth meet a very peppy Pomeranian, Takumi tweeted out the following:

[quote="Shu Takumi"">In last night's episode, there was a Pomeranian who passed the time happily with a boy named Edgeworth... the pomeranian's name wasn't said on-screen, but he just so happens to look like a certain dog at the Takumi residence; a dog that rocketed all over the place just like a Missile.

This past summer, Missile went to eternal rest at the age of 11. I'd shown him off a few times here on Twitter, and all of you loved him so much. I knew I had to tell you all sooner or later, but... Now that he's had one last appearance on the small screen, I thought now might be the time.

He passed away very suddenly, just a few days after I returned from my business trip in America. I believe he was waiting for me to come back before he went... Even now, I can't even think of it without being overwhelmed. Thank you for everything, Missile.

"I'll always always always be with you!"[/quote">

Besides his latest appearance in the anime, Missile is closely tied to Ace Attorney: he was named after the police dog from the original trilogy. But most players know him from Ghost Trick, where he served as one of the protagonists and captured the world's heart as a top Pomeranian. On the game's third anniversary, Takumi released a song celebrating Missile, and even if it was about the version from the game, it's hard not to think it wasn't about his own faithful friend as well.

Missile is survived by his owner, Takumi, and his two siblings the cats Sankichi and Kinako.

Depending on which version you buy, it comes with a copy of the game, a soundtrack CD, a drama CD, a mini canvas art piece, a buildable Blue Badger kit and even some Steel Samurai trading cards.

The first Tokyo Game Show Ace Attorney Panel has finished airing, and you can watch it all here. Even if it wasn't quite what some fans hoped for, there were still a number of announcements.

The biggest one was the announcement of a new Ace Attorney Trilogy port, with updated graphics and UI. The game will be released worldwide on PS4, Xbox One, Switch and Steam in early 2019. Our post on the port, with trailers and screenshots is here.

A new trailer for the anime's second series, as well as a companion manga were also announced. You can find the new trailer at about 21 minutes into the conference, and we'll post it separately when it becomes available.

Capcom also announced a new orchestral concert to be held on March 30th 2019. Tickets will become available on November 24th.

And of course, we also can't forget the Dai Gyakuten Saiban themed credit card that was also announced for Japan... :payne:

The last of the GS1-3 sprites are going up.  Before I move on to GS4 I'm taking a break from sprites to update the scripts.
