The quiz didn’t pass the test
Western Ace Attorney fans have much to be excited for when the fifth entry in series invades the Nintendo 3DS eShop with Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies and its subsequent DLC titled “Turnabout Return” later this fall. Unfortunately one part of DLC, the “Quiz,” will not be following suit from Japan, Capcom confirmed on its Unity blog.
“Sadly, the quiz portion isn’t coming out over here. Many of the answers required a rather in-depth knowledge of Japanese culture so it was omitted from the western release,” stated Capcom Unity’s Chris Antista.
I’m not sure if “a rather in-depth knowledge of Japanese culture” means too much text worth localizing or if Capcom doesn’t feel its fans are otaku enough to to solve this caper. What is even more strange is that the prologue to this DLC is already in the game and unlocked after finishing the first case.
Oh well, at roughly $1.50 a piece for each part of the three-part DLC, we most likely aren’t missing anything too substantial. And hey, at least we’re getting the game this time.
I still cry for you Ace Investigations 2.
