2017 has been a great year for gaming, especially fans of Nintendo and the Switch. And I just found out that it’s only going to get better.
According to Kotaku UK, Pheonix Wright will be making a comeback in 2018!
Capcom has confirmed that there will be three new Ace Attorney games coming out next year. Two may come between April 2018 and October 2018. Those two games will be compilations of previous Ace Attorney games. The first one being the first three games and the other being games four through six.
Of course, the first Ace Attorney trilogy is on the Nintendo 3DS, but these games will now be coming to the Nintendo Switch.
When Kris and I first discovered this series, we bought Trials and Tribulations (the third and final game of the first main trilogy… not realizing it was a trilogy). It was through the Wii Ware and we bought and played through all three games.
Then they kept coming out on the Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS between Miles Edgeworth and Apollo Justice. We kept buying and playing them.
I don’t know if we’ll get these games for the Switch, but it will be nice to play them on the big screen again. I’m eager to see how the Switch will make the games appear.
The best part of this news, however, is that the third game will be brand new. It’s going to be another Phoenix Wright game with Phoenix as the main playable protagonist and five brand new cases to start off with. It’s going to be the beginning of a new mainline Ace Attorney game… which, I assume (hope) that means there will be more new games to come after this one. Maybe this will be another trilogy? I hope so.
I was worried after playing through Spirit of Justice only because they brought a lot of old characters back and wrapped up a few loose ends. While they didn’t tie every knot, it really did seem as though it may be the last game. I’m glad that won’t be the case.
I love my Pokemon, Mario, and Zelda, but I am super excited that Phoenix will be making his way to the Nintendo Switch! I can’t wait to play as him again. I can only imagine what new adventures (and troubles) he’ll get into this time.
Are you excited about this new game? Let me know in the comments below!
