Phoenix Wright 123HD was recently announced
in Capcom's Phoenix Wright event. Capcom was surprisingly swift in releasing the game, only a few days later it was uploaded to the Japanese iTunes appstore
. Unfortunately it is only in Japanese, no other versions have been released or even announced yet.
I have a Japanese iTunes account, so I had the opportunity to download the game and check it out quickly. I had a bit of a play through and it remains very faithful to the DS versions. For the unaware, Phoenix Wright is a game that was first published on the Gameboy Advance in Japan. The main character, Phoenix Wright, is a defense attorney, and the game involves both courtroom trials and investigative sequences in which you prove your client innocent. It is a simple game of looking for relevant clues and contradictions to unravel witness testimonies, but the success is largely from the excellent stories, over-the-top characters and unique gameplay. It was ported to the Nintendo DS where it received such phenomenal success that sequels and spinoffs were released.
