REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

ONE PIECE Unlimited World Red Review
"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney 5 Gets Proper Subtitle, Launch Window, Digital-Only Release

Posted on Monday, May 13 @ 11:15:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Capcom has announced that Ace Attorney 5, now officially known as Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies will launch this fall on the 3DS eShop.

Interestingly enough, the game will not be available in physical form, which the publisher realizes may disappoint some of the portable gaming crowd, but believes the benefits outweigh the cost. A Capcom representative released the following statement to IGN:

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.

We understand that this decision may upset fans who wanted to have a physical version of the title to add to their collection but we believe this direction is the best to take to ensure that fans are able to enjoy the game at their own leisure.

We will be confirming details on the price point soon so please stay tuned for more information on the latest in the Ace Attorney series.

Could this be the beginning of more full-scale digital-only releases for Nintendo's handheld? Does the shift away from physical media have you concerned? Sound off in the comments below.
