On March 15, 2022, Capcom revealed that they trademarked Apollo Justice in Japan on March 7, 2022. What is notable about this trademark is that it utilizes the localized naming convention instead of the franchise’s Japanese name, Gyakuten Saiban. While not confirmed, it seems likely that Capcom is preparing to port Apollo Justice to modern platforms like the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 since this entry is currently only available on DS, 3DS, and mobile. With the forthcoming closure of the 3DS eShop, it’s only sensical to make this title available on modern platforms.
Apollo Justice occurs after the original trilogy that starred Phoenix Wright and is arguably the most blacksheep part of the series. Still, it’s one of my favorite entries, and I’m hoping to see a new generation of players interact with it. Hopefully, Dual Destinies, Spirit of Justice, and the Investigations duology will receive similar treatment.

The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles has players assume the role of Ryunosuke Naruhodo, an aspiring Japanese attorney. This character is meant to be an ancestor of Phoenix Wright and will need to solve 10 cases in the late 19th century during Japan’s Meiji Period and England’s Victorian Era. However, he does have the help of his Judicial Assistant Susato Mikatoba, and legendary detective Herlock Sholmes.
The title is available on PlayStation 4, PC via Steam and Nintendo Switch.
