Prepare yourself, attorney aficionados and speakers of Japanese — the upcoming 3DS port of Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney will include both the English and Japanese versions of the game, for no additional cost.


This is the first time in the series that a North American release will include the option to play in Japanese. This means that the “original” version of the fourth Ace Attorney title will be fully available with non-localized names, sound clips and more. Given how every AA game is subject to heavy localization (always for the better, in this author’s humble opinion), this offers a chance for those brushing up on their Japanese a chance to experience the story in a new way without importing.

Apollo Justice releases on November 21st for the 3DS, at $19.99. The port will come with fancy new HD graphics and features, much like the previous Ace Attorney Trilogy release. Stay wried for more details leading up to the release.
