Rumor: Switch getting two Ace Attorney compilations, along with brand new entry

Posted on November 13, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in Rumors, Switch

Last week, Capcom confirmed that Ace Attorney is heading to Switch in some fashion. Kotaku UK shares more on the company’s apparent plans.

If the site is to be believed, two compilations will be launched in the first half of the 2018 / 2019 financial year, which falls between April and October 2018. The initial release will be a bundle of the first three Ace Attorney entries. The other, naturally, is a bundle of games four through six.

Kotaku UK adds that Capcom is also working on a brand new, mainline Ace Attorney title for Switch. It’s supposedly scheduled for a late 2018 simultaneous global release. The site goes on to say that it will have “five cases at launch, and features Phoenix Wright returning as the playable protagonist of the story.”

    This is probably fake but….

    YEEEEEEE

    • Rodrigo Coelho Costa Junior

      no I don’t think so.
      capcom confirmed last week that ace attorney was comming to the switch.

      • GoldenTriforce

        Well yeah but they didn’t specify which

        • Froot

          It’s not 3 games, it’s just a bundle. They only need to port it. Launch bundle, create hype, launch another bundle, create even more hype and then BOOM the new game

        • KnickKnackMyWack

          A remastered trilogy of the first three games already exists on mobile and 3DS.

          • Blackbishop

            And Apollo’s game will release in the next two weeks as well, so I don’t think they have any problem any of these except logistics (supposing the bundles are physical).

        • Rodrigo Coelho Costa Junior

          I wouldn’t call it out just yet. If you see how many of these games they release all the time in japan in very different formats and platforms, you’d be surprised.
          I think its very possible that they’ll do it.

          • GoldenTriforce

            Its that plus its Kotaku, and plus its a Kotaku article written by Laura Kate Dale. Neither have the greatest track record when it comes to rumors.

          • Rodrigo Coelho Costa Junior

            really? Wasn’t that the girl who got a lot of switch rumors right?

          • wade wilson

            yep. she even called mario+rabbids

          • Rodrigo Coelho Costa Junior

            yeah. so its actually ok to believe her this time, right? hahaha

          • Edward Wokhands

            They usually “leak” ideas after they’re common knowledge. I’d be curious to see when they “leaked” Rabbids because that was being rumored for a LONG time. Before we even knew it was called the Switch I think. Anyway I’m not bragging but I’ve predicted just as many things as LKD just from observing Nintendo, knowing the hardware etc. I mean I predicted that Doom could run on the Switch months before it was announced. I could’ve opened a Twitter account, pretended to have “sources” and put all my predictions up there, my track record would be better than LKD’s.

            (By the way can you tell I despise leakers who refer to themselves as “journalists”?)

          • GoldenTriforce

            Some initial Switch hardware stuff, and M&R but she also got A LOT wrong. That’s not to say she’s untrustworthy though, it could have just been her sources at the time.

          • Edward Wokhands

            Yeah, people don’t remember the misses. They just remember the hits, just like a psychic. Leakers are scumbags by the way. They’re the gaming equivalent of paparazzi who take upskirt pictures of celebrities.

          • GoldenTriforce

            Yeah, devs put an incredible amount of effort into making games, they deserve the respect to announce their games themselves.

    this is probably real, Switch by the end of next year will have already outsold Xbox One. third parties are starting to see Switch is worth more porting games to over Xbox One

    • Edward Wokhands

      I think it was always getting 3DS games. The main thing I was looking forward to was the guaranteed continuation of 3DS/DS games. I mean they have nowhere else to go. So at a minimum the Switch would have been a 3DS-2. Luckily it’s become way more than that and has become an amazing device.

      • venomancer

        yup sooner Nintendo ends the 3DS the better

  • Amethyst Gaze

    I’d totally buy the two compilations for Switch. As well the new game of course.

    I put more faith into a random YouTube commentator than I do with this one

    • Peace Boy

      She got a bunch of stuff right before, nobody’s perfect y’know.

      • ben

        Actually she didn’t.

        • Peace Boy

          Stop spreading false information. She didn’t get EVERYTHING right. If you were a guy with sources, would it be 100% certain that all of the sources would be right on all their leaks? No, of course not.
          You’re essentially attacking the messenger.

          • Arrowdusk

            fight em PB!

          • Edward Wokhands

            Yeah but I got just as much, if not more, right than LKD and I’m just a guy who knows a lot about the industry/indie game developer. I know nobody at any big companies. Most of this stuff could be figured out using common sense and a lot of it was rumor WAY before LKD “leaked” it (like Rabbids).

            I’m seriously considering starting up a Youtube channel and Twitter with my commentary because I write a lot of stuff in comments that other people seem to be able to turn into a career. I seriously can’t stand “leakers”. They’re the scumbags of the industry. It’s hilarious that they call themselves “journalists”. I guess insider traders and data hackers are journalists too.

          • Peace Boy

            Here are the leaks she got right:
            Mario Kart 8 port
            The existence of Beyond Good and Evil 2.
            Just Dance 2017 at launch for Switch.
            Monolith Soft’s “new game”, AKA Xenoblade 2.
            New IP to be shown in January event, AKA ARMS.

            Here’s a link to some more correct leaks, they’re at number 2 in the article: http://heavy.com/games/2017/08/laura-kate-dale-k-buzz-leaks-transgender-surgery-autism-podcast/

          • Edward Wokhands

            But all of those were known for SO long apart from Just Dance. (Although that’s one of those easy shovelware games. I’d be curious to know when THAT was “leaked”? Because the second we saw motion controls those games were obvious.) Beyond Good And Evil was known because the artist leaked some concept art (probably with permission) with hints as to what it was for (not that they were needed) over a year before the announcement! The game has been rumored for SO long now.

            Monolith Soft’s game was known for ages and was being talked about for a while, people just didn’t know it was Xeno 2. I guessed Wii U ports because, well, it’s an obvious, easy way to make money. Also when did they first mention Mario Kart 8?

            Obviously a new IP of some sort would come with the console. Honestly, all of these were guessed by regular people in the community!

            I mean, honestly, I guessed Doom, I guessed the concept of Mario Odyssey, I guessed that Wii U games would come to Switch, I guessed we’d get Phoenix Wright games. I could go on and on. All of LKD’s “leaks” are usually circulated as rumor BEFORE they “leak”. Getting things right doesn’t mean a thing when you throw out enough guesses as I’ve demonstrated with my educated guesses.

            Also leakers are scumbags. I think they should have some sort of criminal action taken against them. They could lose a company money just so they get a little attention/ad clicks on Twitter.

          • Peace Boy

            It seems you didn’t answer to the article I linked that shows more stuff which she leaked.

          • ben

            She said. Splatoon one was the splatoon game. Mario was day one. Zelda was delayed. Smash was year one.. the list goes on and on. She got almost nothing right.

          • Peace Boy

            Leaks that she got right:
            Mario Kart 8 port
            The existence of Beyond Good and Evil 2.
            Just Dance 2017 at launch for Switch.
            Monolith Soft’s “new game”, AKA Xenoblade 2.
            New IP to be shown in January event, AKA ARMS.

          • Peace Boy

            What you’re showing me has not negated anything I listed that she got right.

          • JasonBall

            You are right. She was correct on some things. My point is that because of all the things she didn’t get right, I cannot trust her on anything.

          • Peace Boy

            Nobody’s perfect you know.

          • JasonBall

            Which is exactly precisely why I don’t trust her. Thank you.

          • Edward Wokhands

            Exactly, I’ve written this a few times now but I’ve guessed so many things right over the past year just based on what I know about the industry and what would make sense that I could be known as a “leaker”. I mean I told my friend that Doom would probably release and that it could run on Switch. A month or two later it was announced.

            There are so many things I guessed right (and obviously quite a few wrong but they don’t matter in leak land) that I could legitimately trick people into thinking I have some sort of inside sources.

            I mean on that picture posted above are we supposed to believe LKD is a “leaker” because they guessed Mario Kart 8 after seeing the release trailer… that showed Mario Kart 8 in it?

          • JasonBall

            With all the bragging you do about your correct predictions you’d make a great leaker, you’re right.

      • Hidden Flare

        Would you mind listing a few things she has gotten right then?

        • Peace Boy

          Mario Kart 8 port
          The existence of Beyond Good and Evil 2.
          Just Dance 2017 at launch for Switch.
          Monolith Soft’s “new game”, AKA Xenoblade 2.
          New IP to be shown in January event, AKA ARMS.

        • Edward Wokhands

          Ignore their reply. BGAE2 was leaked WAY before the announcement because an artist uploaded concept art proving the game was in development. I think it was a year or two before the announcement!

          Everyone guessed there’d be a new IP. Everyone guessed Just Dance when we saw motion controls and Ubisoft.

          Everyone knew Monolith were making a game, it was just the name that wasn’t known, something that LKD DIDN’T leak.

  • ArtBats

    But no Great Ace Attorney? D: Gaaaah

  • chancetime

    Phoenix Wright as the main character, huh… Shame. I was so ready for Athena Cykes Ace Attorney

  • Roto Prime

    Hard copy please!!!!

  • theFooFighter

    Capcom finally starting to get their $h!t together. Maybe MVC infinite flopping was exactly what they needed to see where their fans actually play

  • AquaBat

    Gee I wonder who could have written thi-aaaaaaand it’s LKD
    Fake until proven otherwise

    • theFooFighter

      At the very least we’re getting 1 ace attorney game so it has to count for something

  • LB

    This sounds too good to be true…

  • this is honestly a rumor I could believe. Not to say I have a feeling or there are obvious hints besides Kotaku UK, but I think this could be pretty true. Here’s hoping!

  • Reggie

    Considering that Capcom has done nothing but ports lately, the former is very likely.

  • Daniel Limón

    This is a great rumor, and if the first trilogy is remade with the current engine, I’ll be so inclined to re-purchase it.

  • Douglas Siano

    Really? Phoenix is the protag? UGH. It should be Athena. Game 3 is when Phoenix matured, Game 6 is when Apollo (who was introduced in Game 4) matured (and was the main protagonist), so Game 7 should be when Athena (introduced Game 5) should mature and be the main protagonist.

  • Dylan W

    I’ve only completed the first one and the crossover game with Professor Layton so I would totally buy these compilations. I’ll get plenty of use out of my Switch next year if this rumor is true.

  • Dylan W

    They should also bring over Great Ace Attorney and Investigations 2 since they were never released outside of Japan.

  • This would be nice if it actually happens.

  • Snackster1001

    Knowing who spread this rumor, I have no faith in this being true. However, if it is true it will finally give me the chance the binge the series, it has been on my list of franchises to get into

  • ben

    It is Laura Kate Dale.. So basically this just popped in her head and she thought that sounds plausible and wrote a story…

    • Aline Piroutek

      Who is this person? A jornalist? A celebrity? Son of Reggie? A hacker?
      I can make rumors too, “My sources says the new Pokémon title for Switch runs at 30 fps flawlessly and Mewtwo is going to have a comeback”.

      • JasonBall

        A fraud, that’s who she is.

    • Edward Wokhands

      The annoying thing about LKD is that I’ve made EVERY prediction they have and before them too! (Most have been obvious.) Check my reddit profile, all the comments are there with the dates. I mean Ace Attorney was confirmed by the damn developers and now LKD “leaks” that they’re releasing Ace Attorney games? The obvious thought (that I and many other people wrote online) was that they’d release compilations and an original game.

      LKD works just like a psychic – throw obvious predictions out with a few that are sort of specific and the ones you get right get remembered and the ones you got wrong? Oh well the developers changed plans or some other excuse and the predictions and “leaks” get forgotten.

      • ben

        Her Switch predictions were 90% wrong.

  • JasonBall

    Please stop with lkd rumors

  • Tlozbj

    So the Phoenix Wright compilation and the Apollo Justice compilation? Though if it ends up being true, I would had expect a compilation of the 6 games, and another of “The Great Ace Attorney” games.

  • DeltaPeng

    I’d buy 4-6 compilation if it were physical and ideally $40-50 and on the Switch (love Dual Destinies. Should include all DLC, ideally with a graphics bump/tuneup for Switch Docked HD).

    Wish they’d localize Great Ace Attorney, it’d be great to have that + it’s sequel + Miles Edgeworth games (I thought the first one was ok, the 2nd is pretty great from what I’ve seen so far)

    But yeah…this sounds like what people in the comment section said yesterday. Don’t have much faith in this rumor.

    • R.Z.

      They would totally need a third compilation for the spin-offs, I would buy that in a heartbeat, but I guess that wouldn’t be profitable at all, having to localize three games only to sell them in a compilation.

  • ken

    Very likely. Happy for the fans of this series but I really want other capcom franchises like dragon’s dogma and or tatsunoko vs .

  • Ricardo Torres

    Hopefully this is true. Though I already own the last one that was released in the eshop for the 3ds and why do I need another copy of this game again? You know what I will buy it anyway.
