They're finally coming to the West! Both of them! This collection includes The Great Ace Attorney: Adventures and The Great Ace Attorney 2: Resolve. If you don't remember, these are the Ace Attorney games set in the late 19th century Victorian / Meiji eras. They were previously Japan only, until now.
Awesome! It's not quite AA7, but I'll happily take it. What's the word on these games? Good twists and characters? Between this and Famicom Detective Club, 2021 is turning into the year of the visual novel.
Very tempted by the big ol' bundle, but only if it's physical.
@Guillaume I was just thinking, after seeing the Famicom Detective Club trailers earlier today, that Capcom should partner up with whoever's developing those games for a new Ace Attorney. The FDC remakes look absurdly polished compared to any other visual novel I've seen.
Still have a difficult time wrapping my head around the idea of this franchise being on consoles. So weird. Talk about shoe-horning a game concept onto hardware that isn’t exactly conducive to the gameplay or the proverbial “vibe” of the series.
But yeah, between this and the Famicom Detective Club games, there are many of these visual novel titles coming to Switch this year!
@GameDadGrant It's interesting to hear you say that. The original games were on GBA and then adapted to the DS. I could see someone say the games are different on a TV because that's not what they're used to, but "shoehorning" seems a little extreme. Switch and laptops/tablets still provide the option for portable play too (and larger screen options, which is amazing).
Now, if we were talking about Hotel Dusk or Ghost Trick, I'd be more inclined to agree with you due to those games' controls, and in the case of HD, its "book mode" style gameplay.
Eh, it’s just the vibe I’m getting from it. It’s just in my head. I’m sure they play fine on non-handheld systems. It just feels “off” to me for some reason. I don’t know if anyone can relate, but have you ever played a “Nintendo” game, on a platform that isn’t Nintendo? Like, Mega Man II on a Playstation 3, or Banjo-Kazooie on Xbox, or something like that?
The games play fine, but it’s...weird. To me, anyway. I dunno. That’s kinda how I feel about these small, very single-player, “cozy” games being on a home console and displayed on a TV or monitor. Kinda feels...not right. But that’s probably just me. *shrugs*
I know some people treat these kind of games like an actual handheld "book", but at least you still have that option. Should definitely look sharper than it's original release on 3DS too, so that's something to look forward to.
