Well, it's not particularly clear if this was on purpose for the English release (which was slated for Thursday last we heard), but Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney is now available on Google Play worldwide!

Interestingly, this version of the game is USD $15.99 up front from the get-go for the whole game, unlike the iOS version which was USD $0.99 for the first half of case 1 and had the rest of the game a la carte.

Anyway, my own impressions (on a Galaxy S7): looks great, but the sound is all screwy. Lots of unnecessary echo and it sounds like channels are dropping in and out/mixing is off. Wonder what the deal is.

The soubd effects on the iOS version were also off, they were really low quality.

Can I ask how big the app is on android?

Wow If that's the full size I'll get it. It's 2.3GB on iOS and it ate up all my free space (That was without buying any cases either).

I haven't bought and downloaded the game myself, so I don't know if this downloads extra data when you installed it. I remember Miitomo, for example, that had a relatively small download from the Play Store, but when you first boot it up, it needs to download a Gigabyte of data before actually working

So I can only tell you what the Play Store says the download size is

Eh,so far it seems that the art quality is better than the hd trilogy,but the sound is worse in some aspects.They didn't even update the music as far as I can tell.

Oh,speaking of which,is any music replaced,compressed or misused (like Pearl's theme,or the JfA cross examination,or Hazakura Temple)?

Well, this is a nice surprise, since its apparently two days early. It's even nicer how it seems like the file size is smaller than iOS but I will have to buy it to see if its true.

The iOS Version is 2.42 GB, so that's a gigantic difference! Also whether or not you buy the cases, it's 2.42GB, i.e. it's basically pay to unlock

So I just finished playing through Case 1, and noticed something weirdly creepy:

Just look at him. Look at the ghosts of years past that is shady.

Gotta love distant object/people drawings that were never meant to be viewed at higher resolutions. So many shortcuts taken.

I was going to get the IOS version, but considering the Android version is 7 times smaller in size, it seems more appealing!

So far very impressed with the port. The only niggles I have are that the sound effects quality appears to be quite low, as if they were directly ripped and encoded from the DS version. My phone also appears to go the sleep during the game if the screen isn't touched as well.

Loving the autosave feature. I played the game for a long stint, and it killed my battery and shut down automatically (also forgot to save!). When I charged my phone back up, it basically confirmed an autosave at the point where my phone died, and I carried on right where I left off. Fantastic! :will:

Huh, they actually made this for Intel-based Android devices too. That's pretty cool of them (since the platform is all but dead).

I already bought it for iOS, though.

android version is indeed smaller than iOS, about 300 MB and works with no problems, why the big difference .... were the videos not compressed or something?

ARRRRRRGGGHHH!

The iOS version is online only!

I bought the JP version with all the episodes. If I have wifi it's fine, but if I try to play on my ipad without a wifi connection...it says that my connection failed and that I haven't bought any of the extra cases.

Why Capcom, why???

Ugh,I hate it when that happens. It makes no sense here either,because an online connection SHOULDN'T be required.

Pfft, what is this?

This is a damn visual novel, why do I need an Internet connection?

Well, I contacted Capcom Japans mobile division, and they replied super fast (which is nice because game companies generally just ignore you) This is the reply I got:

Basically it said "suck it" but in super polite Japanese. Apparently, you don't have to be online all the time, but you do have to be online when you open the app. They also apologized that they never mentioned this dumb DRM on the iTunes page.

So basically when you open the app, it checks if your app is from a legit purchase; at least that's what I'm getting from Google Translate.

Yup. The strange thing is WHY Capcom feel the need to implement this. They've tried draconian DRM stuff in the past, and always got a backlash. Are they fearing some sudden wave of pirates trying to steal a 10 year old game? Stuff like this just puts off regular customers.

I don't know if this would be the right place for this but I can't really think of anywhere else that's less time-consuming. Anyways, I was wondering anyone, on the iOS version specifically, encountered an issue where the game's volume is off, no matter what I do, without headphones but works with headphones. I was playing with headphones all last night but I doubt a game like that would learn to accept only headphones, right? Any help would be appreciated.

A side note that, yes, I made sure the volume was on and it works for everything else but this game.

The side button that turns ringer alerts on and off, is it currently set to mute? I sometimes find some apps don't like that button being in the mute position when first loaded (and the AA Trilogy was one of them if I remember rightly)
