I don’t think there’ll be any objections to the news that Capcom announced today — Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney is finally coming to the Nintendo 3DS eShop in November. Originally released for the Nintendo DS in 2007, Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney follows the journey of the titular rookie defence attorney as he takes on all the trials and tribulations of the courtroom for the first time to bring a turnabout to the justice system.

The 3DS version features both English and Japanese language options, as well as improved visuals and a few quality of life options such as text skipping from the start of the game. With the release of Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney on the 3DS, for the first time ever all six mainline Ace Attorney games will be playable on one console, from the Phoenix Wright Trilogy all the way up to Spirit of Justice. It’s enough Ace Attorney to last a life sentence.

This Nintendo 3DS release also includes text skip options and the Japanese version of the game, allowing players to switch between the Japanese and English editions.
