As a fan of the Ace Attorney series I felt compelled recently to purchase Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Official Casebook Vol. 1, a comic book anthology featuring various amateur Japanese artists contributing their talents to tell new Ace Attorney stories. (more…)
Phoenix Wright's second adventure
What a difference it makes when you play a game on a console it was originally intended for. That’s the feeling I got when I played Ace Attorney 2 (Ace Attorney: Justice for All) recently for the DS.
After taking my sweet time and beating the iPhone version of the first Ace Attorney game, I was surprised at how quick the sequel was on the DS.
Everything felt quicker and smoother, from navigating the different menus to examining various crime scenes to the presenting of evidence in court. (more…)
The Ace Attorney series is back once again, except this time it’s going to take a bite out of the big Apple.
Wait a second, hold it, what’s this? An Ace Attorney game released on something other than Nintendo? Yup, the Ace Attorney series, with its cast of zany characters, loud outbursts of “Objection!”, finger wagging, and its outrageous flair for dramatic character reactions is hitting the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.

It has always struck me as a little odd that Capcom hasn’t capitalized on the popularity of their Ace Attorney franchise as they should have. For a series that has sold just shy under 3 million copies across 5 games for the Nintendo DS (2.96 million) around the world it’s really surprising that Capcom, known for having a plethora of Street Fighter animated works produced, hasn’t gone down the obvious route and hired an animation studio, such as Studio 4°C which produced the Street Fighter IV: Ties that Bind short film, to animate an Ace Attorney series. There is easily enough material, from the 5 games, to create at least a 26 episode series and even more should they decide to create new cases and content, such as the stories covered in the official Ace Attorney comic, yet Capcom hasn’t made the most of this opportunity.
