We recently had the opportunity to play some of the upcoming Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy, an upcoming collection of the fourth, fifth, and sixth mainline Ace Attorney games: Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney, Dual Destinies, and Spirit of Justice.
And while we enjoyed the enhanced visuals, giving the titular and underrated lawyer’s legal adventures some appreciated limelight, we also wanted to learn more about what this package will include.
For those unaware, the fifth and sixth mainline Ace Attorney games, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Spirit of Justice, have DLC content. There was no clear word on whether this collection would feature all of this DLC, but Capcom told us that, yes, it will indeed have all DLC content.
To elaborate, Dual Destinies has a DLC case called Turnabout Reclaimed, taking place between the game’s second and third cases. It’s arguably one of the entry’s strongest cases and adds some context for certain characters, making it a must-experience scenario. Moreover, the title has various cosmetic DLC for the three playable lawyers: Phoenix, Apollo, and Athena.
As for Spirit of Justice, it also has its fair share of cosmetic DLC but has far more case DLC than its predecessor. For instance, there are the Phoenix Wright: Asinine Attorney and Apollo Justice: Asinine Attorney episodes, which are brief, comedic hypothetical scenarios. Further, there is the canonical Turnabout Time Traveler case that occurs after the main game’s events.
It’s relieving to see that Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy will contain this bonus content, with some being more integral than others. So, veterans and newcomers have a complete package to look forward to.
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.
Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy will launch for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Windows and Steam in early 2024.
