The Japanese outlet Gamer recently interviewed the producer of the upcoming Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy, Kenichi Hashimoto.
Several facets are discussed, with the collective playtime of the package being mentioned. Hashimoto mentions that the storylines of the three games have not been altered and have been retained with their DS and 3DS releases.
Additionally, while the text hasn’t been changed either, some parts of the experiences have been made easier to streamline the gameplay cohesion of the package. Further, Hashimoto stated that if you play Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney Trilogy entirely, you can expect to spend around 80-90 hours.
You can view a translation of the relevant exchange below via our team’s Ryuji:
Interviewer: I have the impression that Dual Destinies and Spirit of Justice had a pretty long story, but how many hours is [the entire collection]?
Hashimoto: The story has not changed from the original [Nintendo 3DS & DS] releases. Our policy for this remastering was to port the original version in high definition, and we did not change the text in any way. We did make some parts easier to play now, but we also aimed for the same basic play feel. If you play the game in its entirety, it will take about 80 to 90 hours to complete in total.*
*TL Note: Implied to be the combined playtime of Apollo Justice, Dual Destinies, and Spirit of Justice, including DLC cases, all added up together.
