Ace Attorney is coming to the Wii!
I am completely open about my lawyer game problem… the problem is that I love them… specifically the Ace Attorney franchise. In weird news Capcom isn’t making a totally new game for the Wii, they’re just porting the DS games over to WiiWare. Kotaku got some infromation which I have copy and pasted for your viewing pleasure.
What Is It?
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney was a crazy-popular adventure crime-solving game for the DS in 2005 where players gather evidence to present at trial to convict criminals. Now it’s being ported to the Wii via WiiWare in all its investigative glory.
What We Saw
I played through a segment late in the trial where the murderer in on the stand spouting lies for Phoenix to rip apart.
How Far Along Is It?
It’s a straight port with no fancy extras or overhauled graphics, so consider the game done. Ace Attorney hits the United States in January with Justice for All and Trials & Tribulations following in March and May respectively. The bonus fourth episode will also drop in May for an as-yet unspecified low price.
I’m a little let down that Capcom hasn’t crafted an all new adventure for the spikey haired lawyer. I’ve played through the first game twice and don’t really care to do so again. I do hope it sells well though, it would be nice to see an Ace Attorney game made for the Wii.
