Have you ever played an Ace Attorney game and thought to yourself, "Man, this would be so much better if it wasn't on the DS"? Of course you haven't, because that would be idiotic and you're not an idiot. Are you? If you are, then allow Capcom to dash your hopes of seeing Wright on the Wii, PS3 or 360.
"Right now, we have no plans to make ports for any other hardware," explains producer Motohide Eshiro.
"It’s not that we don’t like other hardware and that we don’t want to do it. It’s just it was original made for handhelds, it was made to be played on the go, and also the interface we created the game, especially for Ace Attorney Investigations, uses the touch screen and we want people to interact with that. You can’t replicate that on Xbox Live. For us, the DS seems like the most natural fit."
I really couldn't imagine playing Phoenix Wright on a home console, actually. Sometimes tells me it would lose a little of its charm if it went all Hi-Def.
