All Of Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies’ Costume DLC Is Coming To The West

By Ishaan . August 27, 2013 . 2:00pm

While Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies Quiz DLC won’t make it over to the west, all of the game’s costume DLC will, including costumes that you unlock upon completing the quiz DLC.

 

Says series producer Motohide Eshiro in a fan Q&A:

 

In addition to the pack of three costumes that is already out in Japan, we are working to ensure that western users can also get the additional AA3 Phoenix costume which, in Japan, is part of the quiz DLC that we’ve previously stated won’t be coming to the west due to cultural localization issues. Stay tuned for more information on this!

 

Eshiro also pointed out that his favourite case in Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies is the third case in the game. “It’s set in a legal academy, and features what I think are the most unique characters and interesting story developments in the game,” he says.

 

Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies is slated for release this fall in the west.

    Well it’s something…
    According to Aoshi, the quizzes aren’t even worth much too.

    Yaay! Now I can replay in style!

  • Barrylocke89

    The quiz sounded pretty dull so I don’t mind myself. At least I might have wanted the DLC costume.

  • theman_714

    WOW, I wanna meet the person that actually buys this! seriously, if it was a fighting game or something it MIGHT be justifiable, but costumes for a visual novel, point and click game? that’s insane!

    I Remember playing the old Ace Attorneys and you barely got to see Phoenix Wright except in the court. unless The 3DS game is way different

    • British_Otaku

      It was free (now 150 Yen iirc) in Japan if you downloaded it in the first few weeks, so myself and other importers here snapped it up fast. If you guys are lucky, you will get a similar offer or just them free on the spot (I mean it’s a VN and they would earn VERY little money). The only benefit to them by having the costumes is that they have been able to use them along with the rest of the DLC (not sure how effective) to pressure people into buying earlier and not giving away your copy.

      Even the Pirate Whale DLC is going for a cheaper price point (not free lol), till late September.

      This game seems to have the camera focused on Phoenix in a few screens, probably reflecting us playing as Kokone or Apollo or something. I would love to defend in court dressed as Phoenix is in the screenshot above though.

      I feel like this is the one genre where a DLC outfit actually matters, as we can be more focused on the characters themselves. In a fighting game it’s neat but the last thing on your mind is “Man I’m gettin’ my ass kicked…IN STYLE~”

      • British_Otaku

        I don’t know, people seem to respect Love Falcon and Jigglypuff with a Hat in Smash Bros.
        Even if the focus isn’t on the characters as much as what attacks you should be doing and avoiding, there is a chance of the script in the game contradicting what you are wearing though I guess that’s video games when they don’t write more to reflect how odd it is to be in swimming trunks on Lost Planet’s EDN 3rd or a respectable partner to Phoenix Wright being dressed as a school girl because…

    • Arrei

      I think the fact that you can see Phoenix speaking in the above screenshot already suggests things are different in regards to screen time.

  • Guest

    Phoenix looks like a badass in whatever costume he is in!

  • abcdeee

    I want badass AA4 phoenix who’s with me?

    • Rytan

      Yes, please. I loved HoboNick. i think we’re one of the few rare exceptions, though.

    • XiaomuArisu

      “The next time you hit me say ´Take that!´It will give you an extra push”
      Phoenix is the MAN!!!

  • wahyudil

    make the physical cartridge happen first, then we will talk DLC …

  • http://watercrown.info/ Ryusui

    Screw costume DLC AND physical copies; I just want a freakin’ RELEASE DATE.

    Nothing they say is relevant until we know when exactly we can buy this game.

  • British_Otaku

    The game just released in Japan, even if they don’t need to print any copies, they would be pretty fast for a localisation team of a VN (plus additional story DLC) just to release it this year, Multi-5 or not.

  • Rytan

    Well, Fall pretty much confirms it for any time between September 22 and December 20. I’m kind of hoping for November myself, because I’ll actually have some money on the eshop by then.

  • http://watercrown.info/ Ryusui

    That’s what simultaneous localizations are about in this day and age. Atlus pushed out the US version of SMTIV, a full-blown RPG, just three months after its Japanese launch.

    Granted, I don’t doubt Capcom will drag its heels bringing this one over. Their amazing new business strategy seems to be “piss all over everybody who ever thought they were cool.”

  • 하세요

    Because no other company does DLC, like ever, right?

  • British_Otaku

    Believe me, I’m quite used to seeing (near) simultaneous localisations from many of the games (FIFA, Pro-Evo, Call of Duty, Dragon Ball, Naruto) which hit late in the year.
    I’m not going to expect one from Capcom who don’t have a record of localising AA games quickly and have been dropping off languages, physical releases and not had the best financial times or just reputation overall.
    Oh and I’m looking forward to a date for SMTIV for PAL players… Them working out something for North America and Japan is cool, still 2 out of 3 isn’t ideal.

  • RisukuAozora

    Ok, use your brakes. Not every company is Atlus and decides to be awesome like them.
    While a release date would be nice, you can’t rush greatness (even tho Capcom is anything but). Heck, I wouldn’t mind them slowing down a bit so we could’ve gotten that boxed release too.

  • Highasthesky

    Not like Capcom.. well maybe Square.

  • http://watercrown.info/ Ryusui

    I got the $30 credit for SMTIV/FE:A, and I’m saving it up for this. Though I gotta admit it’s burning a hole in my pocket…

  • Rytan

    Sadly mine did just that. But I enjoyed the hell out of Attack Of The Friday Monsters, Shantae and Picdun 2 so it was worth it.
