    This must be that last case. Y'know, the one with the fancy-shmancy touch controls from the DS version.

    Why would you care?
    It would be cool if they made 1 phoenix game and they keep on making more cases.

    I can see them doing that, these games sell a decent amount in some places but struggle in others.

    I'd happily go for a 5 episode season, new episode every month would do me nicely. It would also help keep the episodes to keep up with current pop culture things that its famous for.

    That would be great if Nintendo revised their DLC terms. When I buy a DSiWare game, I want to be able to play it on all of my devices, like I can with a PSN account. Hopefully Nintendo changes this with the 3DS, then I would certainly be interested in episodic Ace Attorney content [​IMG]

    How do you install this? Simply install it like any other WAD?

    I also noticed issues when trying to run the Case 5 DLC. I installed the .WAD without issue, and the extra "PWAA Pay & Play (E)" save data entry appeared as expected, however no "Case 5" option appeared in-game on the same screen as "New Game / Continue" (where it should be).

    There is always a "Buy Case 5" option on the main menu, so I decided to click it - I got an issue which I was able to reproduce in Dolphin which I suspect is related to having never generated Wii Shop credentials (since I had never opened the Wii Shop Channel) on my Wii U.

    Reproduction of the message:
    wii.

    I then opened the Wii Shop Channel, which didn't do much until I plugged in my Ethernet cable. I did that, and then after a minute or too I was able to browse the Wii Shop.

    Now, if I launch the main game, choosing "Buy Episode 5" brings me to a screen which claims two things:
    • the cost of episode 5 is 0 points
    • the case is "already downloaded"
    Regardless of whether I "continue" or "quit" this process, the case is now directly selectable from the "New Game / Continue" screen.

    I did a bit more experimentation, by removing the save files (one of which was this "Pay & Play" file), reinstalling the DLC wad, then relaunching the game. Here, Case 5 was again immediately playable from the "New Game / Continue" screen.

    I believe that the DLC only works if the Wii / Wii U has an 'activated' Wii Shop Account, with a valid number of Wii Points (even if 0).

    I believe that running on a Wii / Wii U (or Dolphin) which has not first "authenticated" itself with the Wii Shop must have some variables or credentials "undefined" which prevents the DLC from being properly detected.

    This could be a huge problem once Nintendo take the Wii Shop down next year. All thoughts welcome.

    I asked around in some related Discord servers, and one user (whose name I will omit) confirmed the issue by testing both with his "daily driver" Wii and a "new" Wii:
