Ace Attorney trio filing onto WiiWare

Capcom porting original Phoenix Wright courtroom drama to Nintendo's console beginning in January for $10; Justice for All in March, Trials and Tribulations in May.


In June, Capcom said that Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth would be available for the DS on February 16. With no other installments in Capcom's courtroom drama franchise announced, it would logically follow that Miles Edgeworth would be the next game released in the Ace Attorney franchise. However, those who made such an assumption would, in fact, be wrong.

Today, Capcom said that it will port the three original DS installments in the Ace Attorney franchise to Nintendo's downloadable game service, WiiWare. A pared-down version of Phoenix Wright's initial 2005 outing will lead things off in January for 1,000 Wii points ($10). The game will include the first four cases found in the DS installment, with the fifth case available in May for an additional 100 Wii points ($1).

Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Justice for All will follow in March, with Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations arriving on WiiWare in May. Capcom did not indicate whether these two installments would also be trimmed versions of their original DS editions. However, the publisher did confirm that the games will cost 1,000 Wii points ($10) a piece.
