Ace Attorney 123 HD Trilogy For iOS Delayed, AA5 News Coming Soon

By Ishaan . April 25, 2013 . 8:30am

Ace Attorney 123 HD trilogy for iOS and Android devices has been delayed again, shares Capcom USA’s senior vice-president, Christian Svensson. In a thread on the Capcom forums, Svensson revealed:


“For reasons unknown to me, the release has slid another several months to July. Sorry guys.”


In a separate thread,Svensson shared: “I’d hate to say it, this is the mobile team in Japan playing with dates for what they deem will work best in their market. Sadly, this is not an area we have had any degree of control.”


What does have a concrete release date—at least in Japan—is Ace Attorney 5. That game is slated for release in Japan on July 25th. With regard to that game, Svensson recently stated:


AA5 is coming along great. I saw a build last month when I was in Osaka. We’ll have some news for Western fans in the not so distant future (we know you want to know and we know you know the Japan dates). Hang in there…”


Ace Attorney 5 is confirmed for a U.S. and European release but doesn’t have a release date yet.

    This strikes me as perhaps an early beneficiary of Nintendo bailing on the big E3 conference model. Ace Attorney 5 certainly isn’t big press conference material, but it’s absolutely Nintendo Direct material. I think we’ll see it show up in Nintendo’s summer messaging blitz.

    • SirRichard

      You’re onto something there; a trend with the Nintendo Directs is announcing and highlighting third-party games people may have missed or not known about. Hell, the European Directs have given the spotlight to both Devil Survivor: Overclocked and SMT IV, Ace Attorney 5 would fit right in.

    Probably the only time i’ll ever be sad an iOS game gets delayed

  • Zenthos

    They should release a collection on the 3ds, similar to inazuma eleven. 60$ for Ace attorney 1,2,3,4, and 5, sound about right?

    • Javen

      I hope they do. My friend told me to play them in order of release, but I couldn’t find 2 of the games. I’m not big on iOS games, so I hope this comes to 3ds

        Look on amazon Jasinion. It looks as if the Ace Attorney games got new copies made, so you can find all of them on Amazon (except JFA oddly enough) for about 20 bucks each.

        • Javen

          Oh wow, hadn’t checked in a long time. Thanks for the tip, appreciate it.

    • They did do a reprint of the DS games so they’re about $20 each now so if someone is yet to jump into this wonderful series now is the time.

  • Freud_Hater

    Honestly, I’m SO glad that not only they speak to us like actual human beings without taking détours but that they’re speaking to us at all! The message isn’t like ‘In the current conditions, we are incapable of confirming or deny any release date’ It’s basically ‘Something good’s coming soon, you guys!’ I love it!

    AA 123 ll be releaseв on ios only in Japan, wont it?

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      It was released in Japan last February and is planned to be released in the US (like the article says). An Android port is also in the works.

  • I want that game sooo bad!! well, i’ll be happy with Shin Megami tensei IV until then.

  • ragingmerifes

  • Otoya

    Maybe is a bundle with Miles Edgeworth 2!!!! Haha, how I hope so. LOL

  • new_tradition
