Phoenix Wright, Miles Edgeworth and co. have been regular faces on Nintendo's handheld consoles for some time now, bringing with them a mix of zany courtroom drama, spiritual detective work and a heavy dose of over-the-top comedy.
Tsujimoto's remark gives the impression that what fans will see in the Nintendo Switch is a brand-new iteration of the hit game although there is also a possibility that the "Ace Attorney" title coming to the console could end up being a remaster or a remake instead.
The latest installment in the main "Ace Attorney" series is "Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Spirit of Justice" released on the Nintendo 3DS a year ago.
As for the second compilation, it will include Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney; Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies; and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Spirit of Justice.
On Friday we brought you the news that Capcom is working on bringing more games to the Switch, specifically name-dropping Ace Attorney as one of the franchises in development.
Last week, Capcom confirmed it is developing Switch titles to be released after April 2018, including the Ace Attorney series. The game is reportedly in development for both Switch and smartphones, and it's targeting a worldwide release in late 2018. The new game is planned to contain five cases at launch, and features Phoenix Wright returning as the playable protagonist of the story. But little did we know just how much Ace Attorney it would be bringing our way.
