Next week, you'll have another platform on which to experience Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney
's verbal dueling. Capcom has announced that the iPhone version of the first Phoenix Wright
game, originally revealed in December
, will be released on the App Store at a price of just $4.99. It's even got the fifth case, which was only available in the WiiWare port as DLC. If you've never played Phoenix Wright
, passing it up at such a bargain price is a crime, punishable by our disappointment.
This is the rare iPhone port that won't be ruined by the platform's lack of buttons -- gameplay consists entirely of clicking through menus and occasionally pointing a cursor at an area of the screen. Capcom has even streamlined these controls further for iPhone, with a "flick interface" that allows players to swipe through inventory menus. There's something satisfying about the idea of playing Phoenix Wright
with your outstretched index finger.
