    Really? Is it good enough to forget the fact that you play as... an advocate?

    Gambia, The
    It's a great Visual Novel series with a bunch of lovely characters.

    In case you like to read a lot and enjoy finding stepladders in every crime scene, this game is for you.

    Yes. Technically Japanese text is new to western 3DS owners. The DS version was Japanese-only in Japan, then excluded Japanese outside Japan.
    But once again you don't get the extra European translations.

    They really don't. You can skip Apollo Justice and still easily grasp his character in DD and SoJ. Apollo's character development is flimsy before Spirit of Justice. You can play each one separately and be just fine.

    If you have to ask, you haven't experienced them since it's really easy to understand why. They're more detective games than court.

    That's because they're reboots.

    IIRC the first game was called Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, but all the others had Ace Attorney at the beginning. Except for Apollo Justice, which makes sense since it's the first game in a new branch and the game is all about him.

    It was titled Phoenix Wright once and that was for the first game. Why would you have trouble with the titles?

    You know, I thought the same exact thing until I tried them. It's normally not the kind of game I would play, I only discovered the series thanks to piracy and a friend sending me songs from the games and suggesting I play them. I'm a sucker for great game music.
    And man, am I glad I did. I've been a fan ever since.

    If you've never tried them, I really recommend you try out at least one of them. They certainly aren't for everyone, but they're the kind of games that are probably overlooked by a lot of people that would thoroughly enjoy them if they gave them a chance.

    The courtroom parts are my favorite, but if you like detective games or other "find clues/objects" type games like 999 and Virtue's Last Reward, you may prefer the detective parts. Actually, if you like those types of games you'll probably like Ace Attorney too.

    I dunno, I've seen it both ways so I never know if I should call the series "Ace Attorney" or "Phoenix Wright."

    Nice to see the entire series is going to be natively available on the 3DS without having to bother with TWLoader!

    Oh, already played it on iOS. Cool to see it coming to iOS but it doesn't look like a huge improvement...

    You know, when I heard about this game in 2011, that's my exact thought. I never have a good views on lawyers or attorney overall and when I heard about this game, I really skeptic about this. In addition, I'm not a fan of visual novel game in the past, so the thought of playing or even loving the series is never crossed me. And boy how wrong I was at that time.
    Just like me at that time, you will have skepticism about the game right now because you never played or experience it. Just try the first entry of the series and you will understand why this game is popular.

    With improved sprites as 3D models. Yummy!!!

    I'd recommend you to try the first Ace Attorney game, playing as an attorney may sound boring but the games unfold more as an interactive novel with really good plot twists about murder cases.

    noun; a particular place or position.
    Nintendo, you're hitting all the notes right lately but could you please do them further apart? My poor wallet's already recovering from the sting of pre-ordering Superstar Saga and Metroid II. :x

    But seriously, this is great. :yay3ds: Been an Ace Attorney fan ever since the memes got to me and I had to check it out for myself. It's a shame they've never seen fit to release a main-series 3DS title out to international waters, but regardless I'll be buying it. (Perhaps with this game finally out, they might actually release physical copies...)

    Personally I've gone with Ace Attorney since that accounts for all titles and spinoffs that aren't predominantly based on (or include) Phoenix Wright.
