Phoenix Wright creator wanted to conclude his story after three games

Phoenix Wright recently made his triumphant return to the courtroom in last year's Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies and will cross paths with Professor Layton later this year. So it's intriguing to hear that Ace Attorney series creator Shu Takumi never intended for Phoenix Wright's story to last beyond the original trilogy.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies review - family law

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies review - family law

It's been a long time since Capcom's premiere attorney has been able to shine in a title bearing his name. But Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies isn't just the story of the titular character's return to the courtroom. It's a series of tales that mixes together high-stakes drama and goofy anime antics to create a satisfying ensemble production, albeit one that dangerously tows the line between engagement and tedium.

Ace Attorney's shift to 3D made Phoenix Wright look 'bitter'

Ace Attorney's shift to 3D made Phoenix Wright look 'bitter'

The Ace Attorney series is set to make its 3DS debut with Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies. But as the series' trademark anime-style visuals may suggest, the change from 2D to 3D models wasn't an easy one.

"The 'trouble of making it 3D' was actually very problematic," producer Motohide Eshiro told Game Watch (via Siliconera). "Simply taking the original 2D screen’s perspectives and camera angles and tossing in 3D models ended up making it appear completely different."

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies earns M rating

With its colorful anime style, it may come as a surprise that Phoenix Wright has never been exactly kid-friendly. It is a series that revolves around solving grisly murders, after all. The upcoming Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies may be getting a little more bloody, as a new trailer reveals it's been rated M for Mature by the ESRB.

Why Ace Attorney 5 is download-only in the US

How pleasant that Capcom this week announced a western release for courtroom thriller Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies, but how curious that it'll only be available via download in the 3DS eShop. It's a popular series, isn't it? Not enough to justify a retail release here too, Capcom says.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies coming to 3DS eShop this Fall

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies coming to 3DS eShop this Fall

Capcom has finally announced a US release of Ace Attorney 5. However, instead of giving the 3DS sequel such an easy-to-follow title, the US version will be called Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies--a title we think sounds better suited for the Layton crossover.

Dual Destinies begins like a thrilling season of 24, with the game's iconic court room destroyed. "It's down to Phoenix Wright and his team at the Wright Anything Agency to discover the cause of the destruction," Capcom describes. "Players will have to battle it out in court against Gaspen Payne, the younger brother of Winston Payne from previous Ace Attorney titles, as they defend the accused."
