Apollo Justice is a hardcore badass

The second that news hit about Apollo Justice's makeover for the upcoming Ace Attorney 5, web artists like Umberon went nuts with the concept. Apollo's trying to pull a Raiden over here! You sneaky devil! Speaking of Raiden, ...

TGS: Phoenix Wright 5 is beautiful but impenetrable by me

One of the absolute worst things about coming to Japan and not knowing the language is being faced with the opportunity to play a new game from a series you love and not understand a goddamn thing that's going on. Such was th...

TGS: Professor Layton and Phoenix Wright join forces
by Allistair Pinsof

Professor Layton and Ace Attorney are unique within the puzzle/adventure genre, but both share enough in common with each other to make for a perfect crossover game. Not since Marvel vs. Capcom and Kingdom Hearts have dedicated fans (nerds) of two major franchises had something to collectively geek out about.

The slow-paced, narrative-driven puzzles, stylish atmosphere, and quirky characters of both games could be interchangeable. Level-5 and Capcom realize this and are trying to please fans of both franchises, but my time with the game left me wondering if this is one title bringing the two together or merely a two-game combo pack.

TGS: Ace Attorney 5 trailer is ... OBJECTION!

Okay, that headline made no sense, but an interrupting "OBJECTION!" joke has to appear somewhere in a post about Ace Attorney, right? This hot trailer from the new 3DS Ace Attorney game just came out of TGS, and, boy, does i...

Capcom thinks Ace Attorney fan game box art is for real

"That's Our Capcom! Coming soon to ABC Family!" Capcom is notorious for its printing errors and spelling gaffes. If it's not using watermarked images for its slip covers, it's failing to run a simple spell check on in-game di...

Ace Attorney 5 announced for 3DS, stars Phoenix Wright
by Jonathan Holmes

The latest issue of Famitsu has confirmed that Ace Attorney 5 is in development for the 3DS, and like the headline says, Phoenix Wright is back in the spotlight. After the recent Ace Attorney movie (also starring Phoenix) managed to find both commercial and critical success, it's no surprise that Capcom is returning to the series' original lead. Nothing against Apollo or Edgeworth, but now that Phoenix is a star of stage, screen, manga, and videogames, it only makes sense for Capcom to capitalize on his new-found fame. Phoenix Wright -- the new king of all media.

From reports coming in, the game will feature detailed polygon based character models as well as traditional hand drawn characters. As far as storyline goes, we know that Phoenix will be joined by a new sidekick -- a young woman who looks like a cross between detective Ema Skye and Phoenix's daughter Trucy. We're also hearing that Winston Payne, the "Glass Joe" of the Ace Attorney series, will make an appearance in the court room at some point, though conflicting reports state that this is actually Winton's better looking younger brother. 

If you don't follow the Ace Attorney series, then this all must sound like so much inane babble. As for you diehard Phoenix Wright fans out there, please feel free to freak the f*ck out, and stay tuned for more Ace Attorney 5 news as we get it.

Phoenix Wright games coming to iOS this fall photo
Phoenix Wright games coming to iOS this fall
by Dale North

I'm sure fans won't have any...objections to all three Phoenix Wright games coming to iPhone and iPad this fall. Capcom says that the DS games will be bumped up and remastered for iOS devices later this year. You'll be able to download a container app (free) that will house all three games. In this app you'll be able to purchase individual titles: Ace AttorneyJustice for All, andTrials and Tribulations.

So far no pricing has been given. Let's hope for a sub-$10 each price point.

Here's the best part: a new Everybody Object mode lets players tweet out animated images and sounds of Phoenix's most famous catch phrases. Take that!

Synthpop Phoenix Wright music video is so money
