    After mobile ports of the original Ace Attorney Trilogy, and 2013's 5th entry into the series, Dual Destinies, there had always been an awkward absence of the series' fourth game. But now, Capcom has finally filled the gap by announcing that Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney would be getting an HD remaster for mobile platforms. The game will be hitting the iOS App Store and Android's Google Play Story sometime this Winter. You can see some screenshots of the re-done artwork below.

    What, you mean you don't want horribly pixelated cutscenes in all their glory?

    I don't get the hate for this game. Sure, it wasn't AS good as the first three, but it was good nonetheless. The one I had to force myself to finish it is Dual Destiny, to be able to play Spirit of Justice, which is REALLY better.

    It was not good nonetheless. The third case was really terrible, pretty much undeniably, and the other cases were individually mediocre. Not to mention that the "new characters" were all just carbon copies of the old ones.

    Well, Turnabout Serenade is my second favorite after Turnabout Succession in Apollo Justice, so I still don't get it :/

    I do have shitty taste, according to multiple person, but what can I do. I can't really control my taste, can I? :P

    Am I like the only one that considers Apollo Justice the best one in the franchise lmao?
    Capcom had the balls to take risks with that game, and I think they got it right.

    I assume most people hate it because "Ah, we're not playing as Phoenix!"

    Never the less, I am excited for this port, and I might even play it again on my phone.

    Besides, it introduces the best girl in the franchise: Trucy <3

    Well after looking at the original gba games, then the nds then wii and the 3ds of the phoenix wright trilogy, the 3ds actually looks best. I actually looked disappointed my mom plays the game on her wii with the bad looking graphics as if they just used the gba or nds resolution and just enlarged it instead of actually improving it.

    While i dunno who this character is, it looks amazing, and Wondered how no wii u port was considered, imagine those crisp 1080p looking visuals, could have just been a hd collection for wii u :)

    To be honest while the 2d sprites (if you can even call it that) is rather funny and humorous, i would liked maybe actual rendered models, least make it look like the marvel vs capcom 3 game or some animated cut scenes with voice. Seeing him behind a desk, i was convince they didn't have any legs for long time. Just look at this, how the i wanna be the boshy game put him in there, is silly. :P

    FINALLY!! Played the Trilogy and Dual Destinies on an iPad, so playing Apollo Justice in between with the DS graphics was very hurtful for the eyes! :P
    Also, Apollo Justice is my favorite, so I'm really happy they're doing this! Might play it again just to see the updated sprites! <3

    I should know who apollo justice is, but i don't wasn't featured in any crossover game and phoenix wright trilogy was the only one i played... except i only did 4 episodes before i lost my save data so... what am i missing with this hype? what order does this game fall under?:ninja:

    Also a very important question, ARE ALL TRIALS ABOUT A MURDER? please tell me is not so.:unsure:

    all ace attorney trials are a murder case (or at least, someone died).

    About damn time Capcom brought one to Android. Now I can just buy it and not have to wait for my local retro game store to get a copy in :D
    This is his first game.

    Ok seriously, what the heck? Just yesterday I googled around to find some info about an HD remake of Apollo Justice, but didn't find anything. And now I am being trolled with this?

    Anyway, heck yeah! Finally it's happening. A great game, though the very last part of the game confused me. The game suggested that the legal system will change only to find out that nothing has changed in AA5 and 6. Anyway I'll probably wait for the 3DS port.

    I wonder if this is the something Capcom teased for this winter rather than The Great Ace Attorney.

    I think it's just people just getting their hopes up that Capcom finale localizes the one game everyone seems to want. I didn't see any proof it would actually be DGS.

    Nah, its called mediocre writing and characterization in a gerne where their quality makes or breaks the game. Having said all of that, I really enjoyed the filler case with the Kitaki family.
