In early December of last year, Famitsu covered Capcom's announcement of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney's impending arrival on the App Store. Today we got word that Capcom hopes to have Phoenix Wright available for download next week for $4.99. Ace Attorney will include with all five cases from the Nintendo DS game, and judging from screenshots, very little has been modified from the original short of just stacking the output of the two DS screens on top of each other on the iPhone.
Back when the news first hit that the game was coming to the iPhone we explained the basic premise behind Phoenix Wright:
Phoenix Wright games are a strange mixture of a visual adventure game that play a lot like mixture of a hidden object game and a "Choose Your Own Adventure" book. The game is segmented in to two portions, the investigation and the trial. While investigating, you visit various location and gather evidence by looking around and interviewing anyone who is around. When you're finished with that, you go to court where you cross examine witnesses, present evidence, and object to the arguments presented by the prosecuting lawyer.
Something interesting of note from the original announcement was during the unveiling at the Apple Store in Japan, Capcom mobile content head Takeshi Tezuka assured everyone in attendance that the game would be more than a simple port. From the few screenshots that have been released so far, it's hard to say what else has been added to the game, but needless to say, you can expect a full review shortly after the game hits the App Store.
