Any Objections To A Phoenix Wright Wii Port?

By Spencer . November 4, 2009 . 7:36pm


The leak, spotted by Gamerbytes, is on Germany’s USK which rated a multi-lingual version of Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney for Wii.


Aside from a mobile phone version, Capcom hasn’t announced any Phoenix Wright ports. We even asked Motohide Eshiro, Producer of the upcoming spin-off Ace Attorney Investigations, about one and he told us, “Right now, we have no plans to make ports for any other hardware.”


Looks like those plans have changed. I eagerly await a flood of third-party plastic waggle finger Wii remote accessories.


Thanks for the tip Sarah!

    An emphatic NO objection! How many years I’ve longed for a Wii port, and people probably thought I was crazy. I would so buy it on the Wii again, but they better upgrade the sprites and animation. Not interested in the bite size cellphone port, but a Wii port yes. Would that open the road for Gyakuten Saiban 5 on the Wii? We’ve had enough Phoenix on the DS alrdy and it’s grown a bit staleArgh, I still need to finish the last stretch of Gyakuten Kenji.. I told you my eyes are bad, sometimes I just don’t feel like going back to the DS.

      Then perhaps the DSi LL is for you good sir! 4.2 inch screens! Hefty and masculine! Dsi LL, the system for Real Men.

        I do plan on picking it up down the road if I find a good price on ebay, that’s how I got my Gyakuten Kenji bundle, I wanted the game and it was cheaper to get a LE DSi. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who can’t stare at the small handheld screens for a prolonged period of time, that’s why some of us prefer to play games on a 46″ TV. Heck, I sometimes hook up my PSP-2000 to the TV, for the games that look really good (like maybe the upcoming MGS Peacewalker). Don’t see anything wrong w/ wanting a bigger screen, you prefer a smaller one for your GPS?

      The PC ports were all episodic, right? Maybe they’ll go the same route via WiiWare. I don’t know about them updating the graphics, that PC release didn’t seem to be brushed up:

      Obviously they have higher res assets, but will they use them?

  • Do not want from my end. I view playing an Ace Attorney game as sitting down with a good book in bed, so the last thing I want is to have to play them on my TV. As long as they’re multiplat across DS and Wii, it’s fine. Console-only…no thanks.

    • Aoshi00

      Well, I want full voice overs on this port (though I won’t hold my breath), like they do in the trailers and that 8-min promo for the DS re-release, it was so fun! I hope they make lots of upgrades though, a straight port would be way too lazy. GS5 on console would be pretty awesome. The same game on the DS just feels stagnant, the Edgeworth spin-off tried to rattle the formula a bit, but unfortunately w/o the courtroom drama it really wasn’t as exciting. So yeah, more voices (if not upgraded graphics) would warrant a purchase for the remake.

      • Haha, to each his own I guess. The last thing I want is voice-overs because that could make the court sessions really long and drawn out, especially during all the banter and interrogation scenes. :(

        • Aoshi00

          Maybe not fully voiced, but it would be cool at least during the important cutscenes to be more dramatic, not the section that requires you to revisit to pick up the contradiction. I still remember how funny it was when Maya was accused of stealing Gumshoe’s lunch or Edgeworth having no idea of the existence of the new DS (he still had his GBA that was pocket friendly). I’ve heard full voice from the trailers for all the past games, so I thought it was all a huge tease and it’s about time they actually implement it in the game.

          • Yea, selective voicing would be a welcome addition. I’m dying to hear Edgeworth’s voice, I have to admit. Oh, and Luke Atmey’s, too. Zvarri!

    A port of the old phoenix wright games to the Wii? No objectionA new ace attorney game on the Wii? OBJECTION, this game belongs to the handhelds.

  • No objection here!
    Actually, if they ever localize it and happens to have full voice acting, I hope they get Jerry Jewell (Jimmy Kudo from Case Closed) to do the voice of Phoenix.
    For some reason that match just stuck with me ever since the first game.

    Could be WiiWare? Capcom’s been pretty quiet on the WW front since MM9…

  • kashi

    I’d be down for a Wii port (my Wii’s been collecting dust hahah). Though like other people mentioned, i’d love it to be fully voiced (English/Japanese tracks please) that can be skippable similar to the original games.

  • wiiware anyone?

  • NO OBJECTIONS YOUR HONOR! (MEANWHILE is phoenix’s) i wonder how the graphics would be…

    As a handheld gamer, I do object to moving the series onto a console. T____T But re-releasing on a console for more people to play is fine.
