Nintendo Download: Batman: Arkham Origins, Assassin’s Creed IV, a whole lot more


It’s a big week for Nintendo’s eShop. It’s like a stealthy intruder who sneaks up on you unsuspectingly, except instead of a blade to the throat or a judo chop to the back of the head, this ninja/assassin delivers a giant pile of new games into your arms. So let’s get to it…

The ninjas are covered by Batman: Arkham Origins (Wii U) and Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate (3DS). Both games chronicle the rise of The Dark Knight (albeit in different stories) and they’ll both be available to download tomorrow. Arkham Origins also features plenty of assassins, but Edward Kenway, The Assassin, will leap onto the Wii U this week. While Ubisoft has no plans to bring the game’s DLC expansions to the system, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will be downloadable through your Wii U on Tuesday, October 29.

Also available on the 29th is Sonic’s first Wii U adventure, Sonic: Lost World The blue hedgehog’s latest game will also spin dash its way to the 3DS on the same day.

Finally, if you’re looking to download something today, Capcom has released the fifth game in the Phoenix Wright series, Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies. It’s not available in stores and is only available through the 3DS eShop.

More information on all of these games (and many others) is available after the break. (more…)

Capcom confirms Ace Attorney 5 will be available in US this Fall

Capcom has announced that the fifth Ace Attorney game will be released in North America and Europe this Fall. The game will be known as Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies and the debut English-language trailer can be found above.

Set eight years since his last appearance in the courts, the first case in Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies sees the action start in a destroyed court room. It’s down to Phoenix Wright and his team at the Wright Anything Agency to discover the cause of the destruction. Players will have to battle it out in court against Gaspen Payne, the younger brother of Winston Payne from previous Ace Attorney titles, as they defend the accused.

In a first for the series, Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies will only be available for download from the 3DS eShop. No retail version is planned. I hope no one objects.

Capcom confirmed that the next game starring Phoenix Wright, Ace Attorney 5, was in development for the 3DS in the pages of Famitsu earlier today. Now, they’ve confirmed the game will be available in North America and Europe as well.

Speaking to Siliconera, Brian Keltner, Capcom’s PR Manager, kept his statement short and sweet:

This was pretty much a sure thing already, but it’s nice to have confirmation.

Phoenix Wright returns in Ace Attorney 5 for 3DS

Phoenix Wright is back! A report in the latest issue of Famitsu (translated by Andriasang) has revealed that the crafty lawyer will be returning to portable gaming devices in Ace Attorney 5.

Ace Attorney 5 will be available for the 3DS and will see the return of Phoenix Wright as the main character. Wright was last seen as the star of the series in 2007’s Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations.

Few details about the game were revealed, but we do know that it takes place one year after Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney, a courtroom explosion figures prominently in the beginning of the game, and “a mysterious girl in yellow clothing” will be helping Phoenix.

A playable demo of Ace Attorney 5 will make an appearance at the Tokyo Game Show later this month, and hopefully a US release date will be announced soon.
