July 17th, 2019If it seems all quiet on the Ace Attorney front, that's because it has been. However, there's still been a little trickle of news coming out of Japan.
- If you're a big fan of the lads from The Great Ace Attorney and are willing to pay a staggering price, you can now purchase 75 cm plushies of Ryu and Asogi from eCapcom in Japan.
- There was an Ace Attorney rock concert a couple of days ago, and you can see a snippet of rehearsal footage for that here (including some impressive accordion playing to make Weird Al proud).
- Don't forget that the 2019 orchestra concert CD comes out on the 24th - you can purchase it here or here, and thanks to WarChild on the forums, the track list seems to be

- Finally, in non-Ace Attorney news, Professor Layton and Pandora's Box received an iOS and Android port last month, and Layton's Mystery Journey Deluxe Edition releases on the Switch on November 11th.
Hopefully we'll see some more news on the future of the Ace Attorney series some time this year, but in the meantime we'll just have to patiently wait and replay the Trilogy again. Toatali

because what else could get me to post news again than new AA music
After skipping a release for the 2018 concert, Capcom's announced a CD release of the Ace Attorney orchestra concert that ran earlier this year! In addition to including the orchestra tracks, it will include a recording of one special track where Ryuunosuke's voice actor Hiro Shimono acted out a certain DGS2 scene in time with the music.
While there isn't an official tracklist yet, a 4Gamer report on the concert listed the following tracks:
[list">[*">Ace Attorney 1-3 Suite[/*">
[*">Ace Attorney Investigations Reasoning and Pursuit Suite[/*">
[*">Apollo Justice ~ A New Chapter of Trials![/*">
[*">Ace Attorney 1-6 Beautiful Suite (Maya, Pearl, Trucy, Athena, Dahlia, and Rayfa's themes)[/*">
[*">Villains' Suite (villains' themes from 1-5, 2-4, 3-2, 3-3)[/*">
[*">Great Ace Attorney Suite, Continued 2019 (main character themes, incl. DGS2 songs)[/*">
[*">[DGS2 spoiler track performed with Shimono">[/*">
[*">Ace Attorney Revolution and Inheritance Suite (AA5/AA6 music, Apollo, Dhurke, Nahyuta's themes)[/*">
[*">Ace Attorney 3 ~ Ending[/*">
[*">Miles Edgeworth ~ Great Revival[/*">
[*">Steel Samurai's Theme [/*">[/list">
Additionally, the evening performance had an alternate DGS suite and an AA4 suite instead of the AA1-3 suite.
Since we couldn't hear last year's performance, it's good to know we'll at least get this year's! Bolt Storm
June 4th, 2019Although not strictly Ace Attorney related, at around this time of year a bunch of AA fans gather together to watch companies that aren't Capcom showcase their latest offerings, all while asking each other where all the lawyers are.
That's right, it's E3 time, and as always Court Records will be hosting live viewings of each of the major conferences. While we don't normally expect AA news at any of these except maybe Nintendo's, it's always a fun time chatting about the more general state of the gaming world with like-minded people, so please make sure to join us there.
Here's a list of timings for each of the E3 showings, but also make sure to follow us on twitter to see when we're going live. As always, the streams will be hosted on our cytube page.
[spoiler=E3 schedule">[/spoiler"> Toatali
May 19th, 2019This isn’t exactly news anymore, but Court-Records is looking to make the second major overhaul in its history, and we need your help to do it! We're currently working on a redo of C-R's main site that aims to not only give a fresher look to the game content and coverage you know and love, but also gives the fandom a place to share, search, and discuss their fanworks and theories.
We are looking for a web designer who has experience both in design and implementation. You would be looking at the backend components we have in place with our backend dev, Henke, and working with Cyreb on our frontend to come up with an improved design to represent them, and implementing that design with Henke providing the hooks to the backend.
Some questions and answers:
Q: What skills/experience will I need?
Q: What is the timetable for this project?
A: At present, we don't have a set date for this release. However, we will be doing our best to compartmentalize the work such that you'd only need to be taking part in the development of the site layout and wouldn't be bogged down by other elements (such as content generation.) Ideally, this will only be a few months on your part, but months turn into years pretty easily with this project.
Q: Didn't I see an ad like this about four years ago?
A: Cyreb’s still with us, but his new job limits how much he can do for us, so we figured we should get a new styler to keep him from exploding from overwork. If you applied last time and weren't selected, feel free to drop us a line again!
Q: Is this a paid position?
A: Court-Records runs on a bit of a shoestring budget, so we can't provide professional-level compensation; you'd be doing this for love of the series and some AA swag, like the rest of us. Sorry - we understand for a lot of people this is their job, and if you can't do the work for financial reasons we don't blame you. If you're cool working like this, you'll of course be credited on the site.
Q: Are there other ways I can help?
A: We're currently reviewing what needs to be done for the project, and may open up additional slots (copywriters, etc.) in the future. For now, though, we're focusing on getting a frontend dev first and foremost.
If you're interested, please drop us a line at email@example.com (no, there's no s in that) with examples of your work. General Luigi
May 19th, 2019In other news, there's a continent to the west of Europe. I'll let our Minister of Copywriting take it from here.
[quote="Lumos"">Oh look, we’re recruiting for copywriters again. Ah ha ha.
We’d love it if you guys would be willing to help out! You’d be writing up small things like episode descriptions and character profiles — hopefully not too involved. If there are people who would be willing to type up transcriptions of the games as well, I would probably pledge my allegiance to you forever.
If you’re interested, shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org (There’s no “s” at the end), and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

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.
You can buy the game on Switch, PS4, Xbox One and Steam. Toatali

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.
You can read more about the game's Western release from Capcom here. Toatali
February 20th, 2019[center">[/center">
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

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.
