Posted on 5 years ago by Matt(@OnePunchMaz) in 3DS, News | 2 Comments
Some unexpected news on the Ace Attorney front today: the South Korean media ratings board has rated Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney for Nintendo 3DS. This would suggest that a port of the DS game is going to be released on the 3DS. The game was ported to iOS and Android devices in December 2016 and received higher resolution graphics in the process, so it’s possible that the 3DS version would be based on that one.
Of course, this is not an official announcement just yet, but in most cases a game being rated by an age rating agency is indicative of an upcoming release. We will keep you updated.
