    Lol nice title.
    This leaves me wondering how PW will incorporate Wii features. PW on the DS was always a point and touch (I think that's what it was called) so any use of motion control will be interesting and new to the PW series.

    I imagine you'd just use the wiimote to do the same thing. I wouldn't count on motion controls, just an icon on screen you move around.

    I don't see any logical use of Wii specific controls. So the only obvious choice is to throw in odd support for every device in the game.

    I can see the press release now:

    To truly make you feel like you are Phoenix Wright, the new Wii version will take full use of all Wii functions. Want to make an objection? Simply purchase the Wii Balance Board, Wii Speak, and Wii MotionPlus, and Wii Vitality Sensor. Upon making the objection movement by swinging your arm out and yelling OBJECTION!, the MotionPlus senses the degree of the swing, the Balance Board senses the shift of weight to one leg, the Wii Speak will hear you yell OBJECTION!, and the Vitality Sensor will check your heartbeat for raised excitement levels. This way you are Phoenix Wright.

    I'm almost 100% certain this will be a port. Actually, it surprises me that it's coming at all.

    The developers of the series have announced before that they would continue the series on the DS at least until there's a successor. Future games will definately be playable on DS.

    If I had to guess, this was an episodic WiiWare release. They released the first game in episodes for PC in Japan, and I can see them trying the same thing for Wii.

    I wouldn't mind a port. It would be nice to play this on a big screen and in English. Hopefully it would be on disc and include the first three games in the series.

    By the way, I think it would be sweet if they added voice acting. [​IMG]

    THinking about it, I remember that too.

    Where is our next Ace Attorney game though, regardless of the system. It has been 18 months since the release of Apollo Justice. I would have thought a sequal would have been announced by now.

    February 2010 for both Europe and US (16th and 19th if I'm not mistaken). Gyakuten Saiban 5 has been announced, but there's no estimated release date.

    This is awesome. I hope Capcom translates them for the Western markets [​IMG]
    It'd be a shame to see these games remain for Japan only [​IMG]

    Maybe it's an entire port of the first 3 games. That's not a bad idea.

    No it doesnt. It just says for Wii. At least on the original leak. If somebody else is claiming it as wiiware for sure they're wrong. It could really go either way here; wiiware or retail.....or this could be just a mistake.

    Both are good as long as this is a completely new Phoenix Wright Game.
