Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trials and Tribulations confirmed

By Spencer . April 13, 2007 . 5:12pm

Shortly after a listing appeared in an GameCrazy computer Capcom announces that they are continuing the Phoenix Wright series with the third game set to come out for the Nintendo DS in September 2007. In Trials and Tribulations players step in to Phoenix Wright’s shoes again and face a new prosecutor Godot and once again players use the psyche-lock to probe the minds of characters. Something to note is unlike the other two Phoenix Wright games no budget remake with English text has been announced for Japan yet. Since Capcom is quickly bringing new Phoenix Wright games to the market it won’t be too long until Gyakuten Saiban 4 comes to North America.

    yeah!
    i heard this was the best game of the rest because of all the characters

  • Aoshi00

    It seems like that’s a young Mia and Phoenix, the trailer looks very exciting, can’t wait.

    I wonder if they will change Godot’s name?

    September eh? Nice

  • the_importer

    No dates as of yet?

    “…no budget remake with English text has been announced for Japan yet.”

    I guess Capcom noticed that US gamers were importing the cheaper Japanese version.

    I guess Capcom noticed that US gamers were importing the cheaper Japanese version.

    I didn’t really care about the price, just the release dates. If Capcom USA can’t release a game that’s already translated in English on the same week as it is release in Japan, then they deserve having people importing.

    But then again, due to their censorship and name changing, I haven’t purchased a Capcom USA game since the PSX days. Trials and Tribulations could be the first Capcom USA game that I will purchase after a decade of boycotting.

    They kinda have to change names and wording in Pheonix wright, otherwise, half the Dialouge wouldn’t make sense of be as funny

    Rockman, on the otherhand, has no excuse to the amount of butchuring the series has had in the past. Zero especially

    Agree, plus, the English addition in the first 2 GS games were added by Capcom of Japan as an addition for the Japanese folks that might want to play it in English, not for the European and North American consumers, so it’s acceptable in my book.

    Also, do you know why Capcom USA rename Rockman back in 87′? here’s why:

    A friend of mine found out about those years back and said that if Capcom USA knew that the franchise would have cough up half a million sequels and spin-off, that they could have paid that Mastertronic (a now defunct company) the rights to use that name.

    Actually the Eng. release w/ the name changes is intended for Westerners, so that all the name puns would still be meaningful and funny. Otherwise they could’ve just left Phoenix’s name romanized as “Naruhodo Ryuuichi” (Naruhodou meaning “Oh I see”), which wouldn’t mean a thing to us.

    It’s funny that the setting in the Jpn version of Gyakuten Saiban is in Japan and von Karma is from America, while in Eng. version the story happens in the U.S and von Karma is from Germany :) Or when the policewoman was framed by the college student who wrote her name on the sand, in the org. the culprit wrote the wrong kanji while they mispelled Maggy’s name here. I’ve played through both versions and it’s an excellent translation indeed (if one doesn’t mind the names don’t stay Jpn), retaining all the humor. Now just don’t give me Guns & Roses again :)

    So that muscle bound dude’s the culprit, and we had Rush barking “Mega Mega” all these years..
