Ace Attorney Dual Destinies Won’t Be Appearing In A Store Near You.

NewsV1The fifth instalment of the Ace Attorney series is gearing up for an Autumn release in both Europe and North America, but any gamers outside of Japan hoping to pop down to their local game store and pick up a copy will be disappointed to learn that, in the West at least, Ace Attorney 5 will only be available through the 3DS eShop. Here’s what Capcom’s USA Senior Vice-President Christian Svensson had to say.
“A physical release is not in the cards, historically it’s been tough to attract long term retail support for Ace Attorney titles. With the release of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Dual Destinies we wanted as many people as possible to be able to enjoy the game for as long as possible. With that in mind we have opted for a digital only release via the Nintendo 3DS eShop.”
So there it is, Capcom believe by limiting a game to digital distribution only “as many people as possible” will get to play it, that’s were all the other games companies who do both have been going wrong.
