Capcom has announced that the fourth game in the courtroom drama series, Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney, is coming to the Nintendo 3DS in North America and Europe in November 2017 via the Nintendo eShop for $19.99.
Originally launched for the Nintendo DS system in 2008, Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney on 3DS will feature upgraded 3D graphics, the ability to switch between the Japanese and English version as well as a text skip option. Forensic investigation techniques play a vital part in analyzing the evidence to help solve some of the game’s mysteries.

Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney takes place years after the events of the previous series title, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Trials and Tribulations, and consists of several compelling cases where the protagonist Apollo Justice must fight to defend his innocent clients accused of murder. Upon successfully completing the game’s first case, Apollo is asked to join disbarred attorney Phoenix Wright and work alongside Phoenix’s adopted daughter, Trucy. The pair go on to solve a series of quirky crimes including the theft of a noodle cart and the disappearance of a pair of magic panties.
