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 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.”
