In a recent interview with the Official Nintendo Magazine, Phoenix Wright creator Shu Takumi has said that he feels that Ace Attorney should have ended after the third game.Takumi told the publication “I wanted to avoid dragging it out and having it become a shadow of its former self”
“I felt that Phoenix’s story had been told, and that the series should not continue. Knowing when to end a story is very important and I wanted to avoid dragging it out and having it become a shadow of its former self.”
“Years later, when it was decided within Capcom that Ace Attorney 4 would go ahead, my position was that we should change the main character and tell a new story. I didn’t plan to have Phoenix in the game, but my colleagues said they wanted him to appear in some form, which is why he ended up being the accused in the first case in Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney.”
Nintendo of America has confirmed that a free playable demo of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies will be available today after the Nintendo Direct presentation. The demo will be available to download on the Nintendo 3DS eShop.
Capcom Unity has held a Dual Destines Q & A with Ace Attorney Producer Motohide Eshiro. During the Q&A Eshiro revealed that the company currently has no plans to release a physical version of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies. The main reason behind this decision is that releasing it digitally takes the manufacturing time out the equation.
“In response to fan feedback we looked into a western physical release of Dual Destinies but from the beginning of the project, one of our goals has been to bring the game to the western market much more quickly than we have been able to in the past. As text adventures, the Ace Attorney games require a lot of time for localization, so we really moved the proverbial mountains and had a lot of people work very hard to get the text localized as quickly as possible—while of course maintaining the high quality level fans are accustomed to.”
“As part of this, we made the decision to release on digital only in the west in order to take manufacturing time out of the equation and allow the release date to be as early as possible. So the answer is, no, Dual Destinies will be a digital download-only release in the west.”
