On Friday, we heard about Limited Run Games exploring a potential physical release of Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water. But that’s not the only Nintendo game that the company wants to pursue.

Limited Run Games has gone on the record and has mentioned that Phoenix Wright is a series the company is interested in. Specifically, they’d be open to making a physical version of Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies happen.

Here’s what Limited Run Games said on the matter a couple of days ago:

It is a possibility, but like Atelier or other big games we’d be distributing rather than publishing. We’d have to pay a pretty high per unit cost to Capcom and buy 5k+. We haven’t made any progress on Dual Destinies, but it’s a personal want of mine.

Last month’s issue of Nintendo Dream has a big interview with Takeshi Yamazaki and Motohide Eshiro from Capcom about all things Ace Attorney. The two developers provided some interesting insight into Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies as well as Ace Attorney 6. It’s several pages long, so we went ahead and made a summary.

The most difficult aspect of developing Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies was moving platforms from DS to 3DS. At the time, Capcom hesitated as to whether to keep the series in 2D or make it 3D. Because of the 3DS’ selling point had been about three-dimensional views, they decided to pursue the latter option.

Something similar happened with Ace Attorney Investigations. That title took more time to develop because they needed to create a new gameplay mechanism from scratch. However, when Capcom then made Ace Attorney Investigations 2, they already had the base game set up so they could focus more on the scenario.

UDON and Capcom have been prepping an English version for The Art of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies. And based on an Amazon listing, the art book should be out on June 9.

Below is the official description:

Objection! Phoenix Wright is back! After a hiatus as the lead protagonist of series, the original Ace Attorney has returned as the series’ top defense lawyer. The Art of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies collects the artwork behind the latest installment in the popular Capcom franchise. Included are character designs, pin-ups, storyboards, character profiles, and much more!

Those who pre-order The Art of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies on Amazon can save $14.

Capcom’s latest financial results are in, and they bring encouraging news for a quartet of Nintendo-related titles.

Monster Hunter 4 saw “overwhelming popularity,” according to the company. The game ended up “creating a huge buzz even comparable to a sort of social phenomenon”.

Capcom also says that Resident Evil: Revelations HD and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies also reached their projected sales.

DuckTales Remastered sold quite well, too. According to Capcom, the remake experienced a “better-than-expected performance”.
