The surprise release of Ace Attorney Investigations last week caps off a strong push by Capcom over the last couple of years to get just about every entry in the series onto mobile devices. The mobile ports have been excellent, offering crisp, high-resolution versions of the DS and 3DS cult hits. On top of that, they’ve been coming frequently enough that you might find yourself falling a little behind on picking them up, in fact. If that’s you, you’re in luck. To celebrate the release of the latest game, Capcom has cut the price of every last Ace Attorney game on the App Store and Google Play. This limited time sale is your chance to catch up on these great courtroom adventure games.
If you’re using Google Play with an Android device, it’s simple enough. All four of the titles available on Android have had their up-front price tag reduced to $ 11.99. On iOS, the games are sold with a slightly different structure. They usually charge $ 0.99 for the first episode, then sell the rest of the episodes a la carte or in one big package through IAP. What Capcom has done for this sale is to drop the initial episode’s price to free, and reduced the cost of the IAP to unlock the full game for each. Prices are as follows, in US dollars:
Those are really great prices for some really awesome games. I should note that while Capcom likes to err on the side of caution in its App Store descriptions and only claim support for the latest iOS version that was available when each app was last updated, all of the games apparently still work on iOS 11. It has also been pretty good about keeping them working, so I doubt they’ll be abandoned anytime soon. It’s uncertain how long this sale will go on for, so as usual you’d best grab what you want as soon as possible.
Capcom’sAce Attorney series of visual novel court drama games have existed for years on Nintendo handheld systems. While many have already been re-released on Android, one of the few missing from our platform was Ace Attorney Investigations – Miles Edgeworth. This is no longer the case as Capcom has just released the title on the Play Store, and it’s even on sale for a limited time.
Ace Attorney Investigations – Miles Edgeworth is the fifth game in the Ace Attorney series.
Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth  is one of the few Ace Attorney games that hadn’t hit iOS and Android. Over the last few years, Capcom has been porting everything Ace Attorney to mobile platforms and we couldn’t be happier. They recently released Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice which is the sixth mainline entry. Read our review of it here. While there are obviously some releases like The Great Ace Attorney that will likely not be released in English, INVESTIGATIONS has a DS English release and it is now available on the App Store. Watch the Japanese trailer below:
Unlike the mainline releases, Investigations focusses on Miles Edgeworth. He investigates multiple cases together with a larger narrative at play. I quite liked it when I played the DS version on the 3DS. Sadly the sequel never saw an English release. Just like with past Ace Attorney mobile releases that had English releases on Nintendo platforms already, Ace Attorney INVESTIGATIONS has released on the App Store and Google Play. It is free to download on iOS with in app purchases to unlock more content than the free version as with the other Ace Attorney releases. The official Japanese website for the release is up and it has details about OS support for both iOS and Android. It also mentions higher resolution visuals which is a given since the original released on the Nintendo DS a while ago. As with Capcom tradition, the newest versions of both iOS and Android are not officially supported. You can check out Ace Attorney INVESTIGATIONS on iOS here and Android here. You could also get the other Ace Attorney games on iOS because we now have all 6 mainline entries on the App Store in English along with one spinoff.
