E3 2013 | Ace Attorney 5 Still Possible as a Boxed Release

E3 2013 | Ace Attorney 5 Still Possible as a Boxed Release on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Capcom have discussed the localisation decisions with the upcoming Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies.

The reason why Capcom have opted for a download-only title this year was originally thought to be retail support, but the main reason for the move is localisation - according to producer Motehide Eshiro. Speaking to Polygon this week, Eshiro confirmed that "offering a downable version was one of the ways to cut down" the wait between the Japanese and Western releases.

Another reason was that it would be "more convenient for the users" to have game stored on the cartridge.

However for those craving the smell of Phoenix's files as a boxed product, Capcom would consider a physical boxed version in the future.

"That's something we would have to think about and see if it's a viable solution for the series."

Would you like to play the next Phoenix Wright as a boxed game?

*Sigh* just come out and say it Capcom? Make a poll or something. Don't leave us with an half-assed answer; I don't want to buy the game digital only to find out after it's released that you're making a boxed version.

I'd prefer a boxed version, but I'll take it no matter which way it's released.

I want a boxed copy so much that I've already pre-ordered the Japanese version just for the art (and the kickass Phoenix figure).

Yes, I definitely want a boxed copy.

YES! For sure! NO DOUBT! I VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS!!!!

i want a boxed copy, but if they release the DL version long before a boxed one, obviously most people would of already DLed it and the sales would show poor on the boxed. So it seems like misleading statistics if they did it this way.

I want prof layton x ace attorney, its what i bought my 3DS for...

C'mon Capcom! I would definitely buy the boxed version even if I already bought the e-Shop version mostly because I like collecting the boxes and it just doesn't feel right it it's not on my shelf with my other Ace Attorney games. I've honestly considered buying the Japanese boxed version even thought I don't know Japanese but then I realized how silly that was. Considering that lost of people are boycotting against the downloadable version and will only but a physical copy; I personally think it'll be a smart move

this title should not be a boxed release.

I rather have a box copy since I do not like digital games unless they were on the PC.
