Ahead of the release of Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy, producer Kenichi Hashimoto was interviewed by various outlets, including Inverse.
Several comments are made, such as why this package is even called Apollo Justice Trilogy in the first place. Another notable comment, though, is at the end of the interview. In response to what the future of the Ace Attorney franchise may look like, Hashimoto wants to see Apollo Justice “flourish in the future of the series.”
Of course, the reality of that possibility has not yet been determined, but it’s an exciting notion for fans of the character.
Given certain overarching elements of the Ace Attorney narrative, particularly one involving Apollo and Trucy that remains unresolved even after the events of Spirit of Justice, the team definitely still has more material to work with regarding Apollo’s character.

Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy will launch for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Windows and Steam on January 25, 2024.
The package features the fourth, fifth, and sixth mainline entries of the Ace Attorney franchise: Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies, and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice, respectively.
Taking place seven years after Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Trials and Tribulations, Apollo Justice joins the fray as a new defense attorney who finds himself grappling with the Dark Age of the Law, causing seemingly irreparable corruption across court proceedings and verdicts. Alongside the ever-familiar Phoenix Wright and new allies, the cast tries to bring stability to their clients’ lives in the wake of this chaos, even if Apollo battles multiple demons of his past in the process.
The collection will include text and voice lines in Japanese, English, French, German, Korean, and Traditional and Simplified Chinese.
