Phoenix Wright will debut on PC in 2019

Explosive defense attorney Phoenix Wright will debut on PC next spring. Capcom will publish a new version of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy, which includes the first three games in the franchise, in early 2019.

The trilogy, which first appeared in 2001 on Game Boy Advance but has reappeared on mobile devices and Nintendo 3DS, includes Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, Phonex Wright: Ace Attorney – Justice for All, and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Trials and Tribulations. The games are ‘courtroom adventures,’ in which Phoenix Wright must exonerate his clients from false accusations. As Wright, you have to deal with lying witnesses and conflicting information, working to solve cases by asking smart questions and evaluating evidence.

Capcom announced the new version of the trilogy today at the Tokyo Games Show. Pricing information was not available, but Capcom says the PC version will be available on Steam.

Since its Game Boy Advance debut, Phoenix Wright has been updated with high-res graphics, so the 2019 version won’t look as dated as the original hardware might suggest. Instead, it’ll probably look more like the versions that appeared on iOS and Android.

Here’s the announcement trailer:


The new Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch as well.
