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:

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.

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.

Well everyone, although itís been an absolute pleasure reporting occasionally on news for the Court Records website and twitter account, as some of you may have noticed, life just gets in the way. Basically, I feel like Iím too busy to do justice writing for this fantastic fansite. So, Iím looking around to find a replacement.

The job involves finding and posting Ace Attorney news both here on our website and on twitter. Ability to read Japanese is preferred, but probably not as essential in the age of good translation software (although, of course, it may get more essential once a new game is announced and the hype cycle begins anew, whenever that may be.)

I always wanted to quit this job only after Iíd reported on a brand new Ace Attorney gameís release, but I think I shouldnít let that desire cloud the fact that Iíve just often been too busy to report properly on things like new merchandise or collaborations. If you want to help keep the Ace Attorney fan world abreast of all the news to come out of Japan (and occasionally America), now's your chance to join a really great team.

If youíre interested in the role, reply below or email us at

Edit: Honey Pie is our new reporter. People who speak Japanese are still welcome to assist him should he need to sort through Japanese articles in the future, though.

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.

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 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 [strike">Sherlock[/strike"> 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!

After a 6 year wait, the original Dai Gyakuten Saiban game and its sequel have finally been announced for the West, in the form of The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles. The package will be released on Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Steam on July 27th. The collection includes both games along with some additional DLC. One mode completely new to the series is a story mode which eliminates the need for puzzle solving and evidence hunting.
