Things are looking up however, as Capcom has recently announced that Dual Destinies will release exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS in the Nintendo eShop on October 24th. While a physical release of the game has been ruled out (much to the chagrin of longtime fans), Dual Destinies will be released at a discounted price of $29.99 / €24.99.
Set one year after Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney, Dual Destinies marks the triumphant return of Phoenix Wright, who is once again setting foot in the courtroom, years after being disbarred. For the first time in the series, trials and crime scene investigations will be rendered in full 3D, with explorable environments to boot. Aside from Phoenix, players will also play as his younger partner, Apollo Justice, and his new associate attorney, Athena Cykes, who is able to analyze witnesses’ emotions.
Capcom is also planning to release a costume pack and an additional episode, titled Turnabout Return, sometime after the release of the game.
