The Ace Attorney series will never end, a Capcom producer has stated.
Hashimoto was then asked if the time spent learning how to reproduce the Ace Attorney gameplay in RE Engine could potentially be used to make another game in the series.
“There’s nothing I can tell you at the moment”, Hashimoto replied, “but we’ve certainly gained knowledge about making adventure games with RE Engine.
“However, Ace Attorney will never end as a series, so in that sense I hope you’ll look forward to hearing more news.”
When asked if this could potentially also lead to remasters of the two Ace Attorney Investigations titles – which were played mainly from a third-person perspective – Hashimoto replied that he didn’t have anything to say about that in particular.
Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy will be released on January 25 and will contain the fourth, fifth and sixth games in the main Ace Attorney series:
- Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney
- Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies
- Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice
Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney was released on DS in 2007 and is the fourth game in the Ace Attorney series. It replaces its usual protagonist Phoenix Wright – who at this stage in the series has been stripped of his attorney’s badge – with a new up-and-comer called Apollo Justice.
Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies, released on 3DS in 2013, is set a year after the events of the previous game and has players taking control of three separate attorneys – Apollo Justice, Phoenix Wright and Athena Cykes.
Finally, Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice was released on the 3DS in 2016 and has Phoenix Wright travelling to the Kingdom of Khura’in, where defence attorneys aren’t used and the courts instead make judgements using a mystical vision called the “Divination Séance”.
Spirit of Justice was the last main game in the Ace Attorney series, so players who already bought 2019’s Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy will be able to own the whole six-game series by buying this new compilation.
