April 9th, 2019The new version of the Ace Attorney Trilogy is now available worldwide on consoles after its Japanese release, and for the first time on Steam. There's a new trailer for the game here, which confirms additional languages coming to the game in August.

The ever hard-working Scarlet Study fan translation team have announced that all five episodes of their fan translation of The Great Ace Attorney (Dai Gyakuten Saiban) are now available on 3DS! You can watch a trailer for the release here, and find out more details about the patch and how to download it on their website.
They've also announced that work has started on translating the second game, and that the release of the finalised first game on Android isn't quite ready yet.
This is an amazing effort by an amazing team of translators and programmers, and as Ace Attorney fans who are occasionally ignored by Capcom, it's fantastic to see such dedicated and talented fans work on bringing the series to its fans outside Japan. A big thank you from everyone at Court Records goes out to them.
UPDATE: The game is now available on Android, and a demo for DGS2 has been translated for 3DS. You can find out more here. Toatali
February 28th, 2019The Western release date for the HD remaster of the Ace Attorney Trilogy has been revealed as April 9th by Capcom. The game will be digital only in the West, and will release with English and Japanese language support, with French and German to be added in a post-launch update. April 9th will also be the first time the game will release on Steam, and it's probably the delay in this version of the game that is causing a slight delay in the game's Western release. PS4 and Steam versions of the game come with a pre-order bonus wallpaper.

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. Toatali

A new Nintendo Direct has been announced for air tomorrow, and as always Court Records will be hosting a stream of the Direct at http://cytube.court-records.net/r/CR. 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! Toatali

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. Toatali

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. Bolt Storm
