Future of Ace Attorney Series Depends on Sales

Want to see a fourth Phoenix Wright game? Make sure the third one sells well.

In an interview with GayGamer.net, Phoenix Wright series producer Minae Matsukawa said that if people want to see the laywering series back in America for installment number four, they'd better make sure game number three is a good seller.

Here's the critical exchange of the interview:

GayGamer: I’m sure it’s premature , but do we have any timeframe for a Western release of number four?

Minae Matsukawa: We haven’t decided yet, and we’ll probably be able to announce that after number three is out the door. So after October.

GG: But it will be coming, eventually?

Matsukawa: Yes, we would like to very much, and we’re working to make sure that happens. But it’s kind of pointless if number three doesn’t do very well, so we want to make sure people know about that, buy it, and tell their friends!

The third game in the series, Trials and Tribulations, comes out early next month. If you want to see the series back again, do your part!

They better have done theirs!

I'll rent it but each installment loses some magic for me. The first was good, then you had the new case which wasn't that good, then the second one I didn't enjoy nearly as much.

I enjoyed both games, but typos and poor wording really hurt a game like this... so a ton of the game's magic is in the localization effort. Hopefully they've done an excellent job for this title.

Wow, that's exactly what happened to me!

Nothing will beat the Manfred von Karma trial..

OBJECTION!!

THIS IS CLEARLY BLACKMAIL.

DAMN IT, I'LL END UP BUYING!

I fail to see how this is news. Every sequel's release is dependant on the success of its predecessor.

I was going to buy the game and spread it word of mouth like I have for the past two anyway. It's a GREAT series. I'm sure it will sell fine. I don't see this as big news either. Still, I guess NWR is doing their part by making sure we all go out and get it. Which is fine by me!

Wehlp. Time to pre-order.

I just can't muster the will to buy the first one and obviously I won't buy the others until I had the first...

It's still a pretty cheap tactic by Capcom...

Edit: ... to make a big deal out of typical practice.
