Phoenix Wright set to rise on WiiWare in 2010
One of the most highly acclaimed DS adventure series is ready to take an all-new platform by storm next year, as Capcom has announced ports of the first three Ace Attorney games, to be released through WiiWare over the first half of 2010.
The popular anime courtroom series stars young defense lawyer Phoenix Wright, who must pull out all the stops to defeat a host of ruthless prosecutors and get his clients acquitted. The series is characterized more by its quirky characters and zany antics than any resemblance to real legal proceedings, and the Wii version will be adapted for the home console by having players "present evidence with the wave of the Wii remote or press suspicious testimonies by wiggling it."
The first game in the series, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, will offer only the first four episodes from the original release, with the DS-specific case no longer included. The game is expected to release in January 2010, with the next two games, Justice for All and Trials and Tribulations, to follow in March and May, respectively. Each game will cost 1,000 Wii Points ($10.00 USD).
